My son was there for 28 days, well, actually 30 and neither I or my son have any complaints. They gave my son the tools he needed to cope and helped him find an Oxford house to live in. They were very professional.

The population of the treatment house was much younger, had heroin addiction issues and were disrespectful to other residents and counselors. I would have tried to keep the recovering alcoholics, who tended to be older, together. I also would have preferred more AA meetings than NA meetings.

It worked for me. This June 23 will be 5 years I'm clean & 5 years since I left this facility. So maybe some of the strictness paid off. Very strict with smoking & I was bored a lot of the time. Not allowed outside. The brought it meetings at night (Na, as, & ca). These were very helpful while on treatment to see ppl that had been where I was n were now living normal productive lives. They also had groups & councelling & meetings all day long

Great counseling Great speakers. Take patients to outside meetings, Has outdoor activities. Great family counseling and participation, detox is in a different place then rehab. This facility saved my sons life. They have great communication and keep you informed. They keep the patient interested in recovery. They work with insurance to get the patient the longest time possible. They have 3 stages a detox a rehab then a recovery center.

Good doctors, caring. Needs personalized treatment. Endeavor House is truly a world-class program. I checked in to the program broken and was given all the tools I needed to recreate my life. I had been to multiple treatment centers and was unable to stay sober until I went through the Endeavor House. I would recommend them to anyone struggling with a substance abuse problem.

Attended Endeavor House twice, second time not by my choosing. First off, the detox program is miserable, you are stuck inside a virtual hospital and not allowed outside a lot to see the sun and get fresh air beside 3 smoke breaks. The staff there seem to care but are not competent or very knowledgeable on facts other than the ones that Endeavor House wants them teaching, basically anything that is out of their program, they do not agree with and will try to silence anyone talking about it, example: they allow people to take suboxone, but do not really a agree with people taking that or methadone because they\'re view is that it is not being \"truly\" clean when in reality they aren\'t using heroin or opiates and they\'re lives are getting better. Also, there is a lot and I mean ALOT of drama there, more than any other program I\'ve been to. The reason for this being is because the staff take part in the drama since the majority of them are ex addicts and do not stem the drama when it happens. Bottom line, the whole program can and should be run better.

I entered here at the lowest possible time in my life .I was older the most of the folks here an still was treated as I had little or no say in my plan for recovery . After doing my detox as I had signed in for I was told that I needed to stay for a few more weeks . When I said I had a family an job to get back to I was escorted out side early on a cold feburary morning an told goodby. How you can take someone that has just gone through detox an remove all their remaining dignity by putting them out I will never understand , in retrospect it has drivin me to stay sober for the past six years so for that , thank you for you compassion in a trying time ...not

Excellent Family Dynamic – The extraordinary staff at Endeavor House produces a weekly family session that is the most comprehensive and quality educational program regarding addiction we have ever experienced. After years of confusion and some seriously bad advice from other professionals, we have chosen to follow the guidance of Endeavor House.

What a great place to be if you are an addict. Hey, they don\'t tolerate drug use at Endeavor House and yes they do kick out those who try to sneak in some because there are other patients who do wanna make it. And the money I spent to use and abuse drugs does not come close to what the cost was for me to get sober. And I have to say that coming to Endeavor House was a life changing experience. I had been to couple other \"fancy\" rehabs before and they just didn\'t work for me. I won\'t say anything bad about them...maybe I wasn\'t ready. But what I will say is that I never had such comfortable detox like at Endeavor House. Their program worked for me and now I\'m taking one day at a time. Thank you

I don\'t know where to start, but I will give the honest truth of my experiences at this establishment. I will first tell you the nice things about the place. One counselor was a great help. She was very kind and attentive. Another staff member was also as nice. There are many staff members that were rude and unhelpful. I had a very negative experience with a staff member. She is a wolf in sheep\'s clothing. I had to call my mother to tell her I had fractured my foot and comment on how I was doing. I told the staff member I was going to tell my mom about my foot. She told me I had only 3 minutes to talk to my mother, while another lady got to talk to her family for 20 minutes! Well when I called my mom I told her that I wanted to leave, that the staff was very rude and made me feel like I was in prison. This place has a horrible policy on being able to talk to family and friends on the phone. My counselor came off as very helpful. He was the one to convince me to stay. But he also has a attitude. If you are somebody that has minor issues this is not the place for you. The food quality was very poor. The food was burnt several times. They often ran out of drinks or food. Snack time they give you cereal. Can\'t they do a little better? When you were in your quarters they only offered water. They did have gatorade powder, but you would have to wait forever to get some. When recovering electrolytes are a key factor in the process. They should be re-trained. I had so much stress while I was there I would not recommend this place for most people. Look for other places, this place was too strict and made you uncomfortable. Other people agreed with me. Another issue was guys and girls could not ever sit with one another. How stupid is that! Well this is the honest truth. I would not send a loved one here unless they are tough enough to handle prison.

I’d like to thank physicians of Endeavor House rehab center. They’ve changed my life. Now I’ve been sober for 3 years. If I’m in trouble, I can always visit group therapies. One of the most important things is that I’ve met many people who are my best friends now.

My relatives and friends didn’t trust me. I was wasting all the money on drugs. It was a real horrible place for everyone. Endeavor House rehab center helped me to overcome addiction. I’m really happy that I’ve met many people who have experienced similar difficulties. I’ve found many friends who support me. Now I know how to live without drugs.

I spent many years wallowing in my addiction to alcohol. Buried in self-pity, defeated, and attempting to avoid reality at all costs. This separated me from friends, family, and God. I did not get sober my first try. I had the distinct privilege to attend one of the best rehab facilities in the country, however, I did not stay sober after the “best treatment” in the country. I entered broken and terrified, but I knew that I needed help to recapture my life. The staff was immediately helpful and compassionate. They understood my pain and could relate to my fears and struggles. I am almost two years sober now, and have had the opportunity to be present with my mother as she battles cancer. Believe me my mom is forever grateful to Endeavor House and the staff. They returned her son.

I was truly amazed at how great this place was! I went into rehab totally scared, angry, and extremely worried. The center is nice, the food is pretty good, the staff is very nice and accommodating, and the classes/lectures are inspiring. This was truly the best experience of my life! From what I was expecting, this place was incredible! I met a lot of good people and made some good friends. It was hard for me to leave and I wouldn’t mind going back.

Never introduced the BIg Book or any other important info. No banners with the 12 steps or traditions. Need to separate children, teens and adults! No direct help/teachings for a specific addiction. I left with no coping skills whatsoever. Hardly a treatment facility, more like a playground. Staff was ineffective to control situations amongst the patients. Would NOT recommend this facility to anyone. Got my family to pay for two extra weeks when insurance stopped that we couldn't afford. Nobody listened to me when I told them that the additional two weeks was useless due to the lack of help but because I was unhealthy at the time, nobody listened! ...

The food is disgusting. They are understaffed and the staff that is there seems miserable. You will rarely if ever see a clinician and you basically spend all day with an unlicensed residential aide. The facility is filthy and they cram all the patients in one room all day. Groups are not individualized and most of the time you end up just watching a movie. ... They do nothing to keep you safe.
