One of the staff members is fabulous, but there is something seriously wrong with the residential manager. She told me family she is not qualified to make mental health decisions, yet told them what she thought I \"needed\" which caused nothing but strife in my family. She is not fit for her job, imho.

20 years ago the Jackie Nitschke Center was called The Samaritan House. I participated in the Samaritan House program for 7 1/2 months. The staff cared about me and pushed me to grow, held me accountable, taught me how to use life skill tools that allowed me to build an amazing life - challenges and all. One of the most important things I learned while there was how to communicate with people, how to connect with people, how to work a recovery program allowing people to help me, and the need to surround myself with people in recovery that are spiritual and positive. I learned I am one of those people - they taught me how to have a relationship with myself and begin that healing work. Today I am the director of the center and we carry forth the same beliefs for all people we encounter and work diligently providing them the means to be successful. Because we are human we are not perfect - mistakes have been made and used as opportunities. I thank the staff of the Samaritan House/Jackie Nitschke Center for all the energy they put into my life so I could become the person I was meant to be.

It is a very regimented and strict facility. Even though they promoted themselves as a "Drug and Alcohol" treatment center, the treatment centered around the treatment of alcoholism. I was a heroin addict and I was for forced to use the alcoholic treatment curriculum and "just use the word Addict in place of Alcoholic. Also, even though I had detoxed in a hospital for 6 days before entering this facility, I was still very sick. They called my need for rest "laziness" and my inability to eat solid food "anorexia". They had little to no experience with addicts, particularly heroin addicts. I became dehydrated from vomiting and diarrhea and had to be hospitalized during my treatment. I was accused of trying to get out of the chores and the exercises we had to do. They really had NO idea what to do with me and definitely no clue how to counsel me.I completed my treatment there 3 years ago, so perhaps things have changed. Unless it is EVERYTHING, I suggest only alcoholics attend.

Jackie Nitschke Center has a devoted staff as well as alumni which are very visible and proactive in the community, but like any treatment center or program, it only works when the individual is ready to make changes in him/herself

Within the past two years I have become more aware of the problems with AA and the many alternative approaches to alcoholism. I would like to see much more education, research, and training devoted to the newer information.

Staff cares from their hearts. Staff is a good mix of recovering and non-addicted. 12 Step oriented. Very clear message of recovery.
