Unfortunately I can not say anything good about this facility. Forcing loved ones to be apart from one another. Not allowing them to visit causes havoc in a relationship. It dwindels their will to stick with the program. Counselors lying and leading one to believe something then ripping it from them giving hope no chance to survive. It's amazing that anyone could stick with it and stay sober. They do more damage then they help the create resentment which is a big leader to using. I can not stand not stick behind such a horrible place who treats as if they are better then the clients and that they are in control freaks who think this is punishment and not what it's meant to be treatment. If you have a choice do not use this program it will ruin your life and make things worse before it makes it better!

I thought the community counseling was excellent..i learned about enabeling. It was very painful to learn that my love was not an antidote for addiction. It was beneficial to learn boundaries and behavior the addict has to manipulate you. I've nevered cried more. The knowledged turned me inside out..but it empowered me and gave me tools to help. I still do not understand how addiction can be a disease and a choice That is where i see there needs to be a spiritual dimension added for their soul to heal. Grateful that the Treatment Center Exists Many prayers go up . Thank you.

On my first and only visit I was treated poorly. The woman behind the desk acted as if she had better things to do. When I told her it was my first visit and I wasn\'t sure what to do. She said fill out the form over there. Then when I said I had a drop off for my son, she yelled at me and said didn\'t they explain anything to you. We don\'t take drop offs except for people who are out of town. I said well I am from out of town. Then she said well I\'ll get to it in a minute and thru the stuff on the floor. Then we went into the room were we waited for 20mins before any of our family came out. And had our 2 hours of AA meeting. People talking to each other being very disrespectful. The guy running it warned them. But never followed thru will anything. Continued throughout. Then another guy came in to babysit us after that. I high five my son and get told there will be no touching. After 1 visit that was enough for me. These people are supposed to be role models? Not at all what I thought I was going to see. Big disappointment Big!

I was at CATS for my mandated 77 days. The counselors were all very attentive to any worries or questions I had. The R.A.\'s for the most part were very fair, as in, treating everyone equally. The food was great!! I really can\'t say anything bad. I\'ve just been released within the last month, but so far I\'m doing good. I also attend their out-patient program, which isn\'t facilitated as well as the in-patient groups were, but I still have no complaints.

I\'m sorry but CATS program falls very short of addressing the Economic and Social and Psychological problems that are associated with and are the cause of the obsession and the compulsion to use mind/mood altering substances. From what I learned CATS\' program/guidelines are governed by the Department of the State Prison System and or the Department of Correction. Not all alcoholics and or drug addicts are dangerous criminals. However it seems like the Judicial System is limited to the help they can offer people with problems of addiction so they put all us alcoholics and drug addicts in the same category, in the same program, in the same rooms. I know when I was at CATS I needed a course in communicating with people, negotiating with people, apologizing to people, being able to see things in an objective way, being empathetic, etc. The reason I had to sit through this is because there was one or more other people sitting in that room who needed to hear this stuff. Alcoholism and drug addiction is a very complex problem. The most popular way of addressing this complex problem is by attending 12-Step meetings. I guess the reason for this is because when something is so complex only God can understand it and fix it. One doesn\'t have to wonder why there\'s such an increasing problem with alcoholism and drug addiction. When something is broken you come up with a way of fixing it and you fix it. Or you come up with a way to make everyone believe that there\'s nothing wrong with the way you\'re trying to fix it and you just need more time and more money to fix it. This is like that AA cliche \"doing the same things over and over expecting different results\".

Strengths were the square meals and controlled environment. Weakness was that they do not keep you long enough like Channey Allen does. it takes longer amount of time for women to recover.

77% recovery rate is outstanding. I just started this journey with my son so I don't know yet. Councilors seem educated although I have only been allowed there once. I look for passion in them but that is to be determined.

I would like to see more exercise and leisure activities offered for the clients. Also, would like to be more involved in counseling one on one. They offer a group counseling session once a week but I would like to see individual counseling with family.
