Availability of help Only teach 12 step program. Very centered on AA and no other type or treatment options The day treatment program is effective if you follow the 12 steps and believe in AA and NA. If you want other options, they cant help you. Its very focused on peer process groups and not as much one on one counseling with clients. Very heavy influence of AA and fellowship. If that doesnt work for you, this place doesnt help.

great staff, they really understand how the patient feels and does all they can to help you adjust and be sucsessful they are quite expensive nice rooms, great meals and an awesome pool, it really helped having the pool to get exercise and a pleasant distraction from the rest of the program. the councelors are great and the large room for speakers makes it feel more like a classroom than a group of people in therapy

For a facility with the name, \"Hazelden,\" this rehab was surprisingly a disappointment. It was ineffective in helping my daughter. Here, young men and women live in dorm-like rooms adjacent to each other and then get kicked out each week due to forming relationships. The vast majority of residents are male and the regimented programming is primarily geared to meet men\'s needs. There are very few vegetarian food options and the meals cater to choices which can mostly be described as meat and potatoes entrees. There is no exercize facility. The worst is that this place is labeled dual diagnosis, yet it was virtually impossible to get a psychiatry appt. for much needed medical management until nearly two months after my daughter\'s arrival. Some of the recovering techs who monitor and grade the residents\' behaviors are helpful, while others demean and unfairly needle the residents and micro-manage them. Our family liked that some therapy groups are very good. Overall, many young people fail here and are asked to leave instead of the counselors adding what they actually need: more recovery support. The director misrepresented various aspects of the program to our family prior to our daughter\'s arrival: falsely stating there were exercize groups that met weekly, that there was outstanding dual diagnosis support, that men and women had separate living areas, that there was excellent direction given to residents on stepping down in aftercare, etc. Following my daughter\'s stay at Hazelden Plymouth, the St. Paul facility was a huge and painful disappointment for her. Our family concluded that the St. Paul Hazelden was started by men and that it still is much better for men\'s recovery. It is a gross mismatch that falls way short of meeting the needs of most dual diagnosed women.

Great
Strengths: Private rooms smaller groups. Weaknesses: More leaned toward the alcholics than the addicts they should separate them. It's a much more comfortable place than a hospital rehab...more one on one..not totally 12 step that doesn't really apply totally to an addict. They handled the detox process much better than a hospital setting where your just an insurance payment.

It worked very well for my brother (a long time alcoholic). They incorporated family, which was very beneficial. However, it was inconvenient that it was a ways out of town.

It really shouldn't cost that much. They also should offer more holistic options.

I only needed to get away for a few days, so when the few days were up I was ready to go. Being away from "friends" was what I really needed, not a 12 step program. Medicating the clients was the main form of "treatment", I felt/feel this was not only ineffective but hypocritical. Only abstinence and 12 step, simple solutions for the simple minded. $22,000 for 15 days......the counselors were not qualified and the nurses, doctors, and CMAs were below par. The facilities were pretty nice, but there was only a 12 step traditional approach; no holistic approach at all. ... If you need a rigid 12 step program then this is the place for you!! ...

The photos show a cozy Victorian home where it was assumed the residents resided. The reality was the house was were the offices were. Residents stayed in what looked line a minimum security prison. Totally dismal. We're bringing him home so he can receive therapy and proper nutrition. There was no fitness facility close by or on the premesis. The food was brought in from another facility and it was awful, institutional-type food. There was only 1 therapist on staff for 60 residents and getting an appointment was impossible. At $5800/month, there should have been some type of psychological support, as well as support in all other areas of well-being. ... Unfortunately, maybe because that was an adult facility, it was a poor fit for our son who is 20 years old and pretty immature.
