I’m surprised this facility is still in business. I went as an adolescent and I’m confused of how this place isn’t seen as majorly abusive. My first session, the teen alumni who come back to help “moderate” group therapy spent the whole session telling a young girl with bulimia that she was selfish for her eating disorder and that she would die while she cried. I guess I’m not an “expert” but it seems obvious that young girls with eating disorders have major self confidence issues, so I don’t know what that helps besides being majorly abusive, and giving the young “counselors” (who have no professional degree in psychology or addictions) a major power complex that they abuse. In my last session, they told me and my parents that I was still in active addiction and would die. Thanks. The language they use is really abusive and they really go in on you if you display any kind of emotion other than “strength.” It seemed like in my time their, if you cried if showed any sign of “weakness” it made them HAPPY and they would go in on you even more. A very strange system. If you are in need of treatment, I would go to a reputable in-patient rehabilitation center. The out-patient model they are utilizing here is strange and honestly comes across as very abusive. I think it’s dangerous to put the psyche of young minds under other teenagers who don’t know what they are doing.

I liked the lectures. Nice building. Counselors were egotistical. As a parent, they made me feel bad. They were argumentative to me. They were argumentative to my child. Told my child that she should not be living with us. Made my child feel worse than when she first entered this place. Expelled my child after a few weeks. Might work for some people but not for us.

Is there a star for \'stimulates trauma intentionally\' ? Dilworth is nothing more than a group of 12 step cultists who will extort you for money. Stimulating more trauma in highly vulnerable people is criminal.

Utterly terrible place... They do nothing but make you feel worse. Counselors are egotistical and woefully unequipped to handle much of anything...

The team at Dilworth Center is amazing. The counselors are experienced and truly care about the patients. Lectures are actually entertaining and enlightening. Accountability is held up with urine screens throughout treatment. The atmosphere is inviting, relaxing, and comforting. Overall a great place to help with your recovery!

When the Dilworth Center began and its founders were involved with treatment, it may have been effective. Those days are long gone. It is now staffed mostly by angry women who focus on blame and guilt. Wondering why they\'re doing something? Then you\'re \"blocking\" or \"empowering non-recovery.\" Don\'t even think about expressing an opinion about what treatment might be better for your loved one; the staff \"knows better\" and, after all, \"who contributed to this person\'s addiction … hmmmmm?\" There is no accountability from the staff... If your loved one happens to fit the narrow definition that Dilworth is equipped to help with, you MAY find the solution -- the same one used for EVERYONE -- to be workable. But if not, the staff will frustrate both you and your loved one.
