Very disappointed in the service and treatment at this facility. The counselors were untrained and unresponsive, as was administration. The website says they are dual diagnosis, they are NOT and do not have appropriate understanding of mental health issues co-occuring with addiction.

Absolutely horrible establishment. Never keep anyone informed on what is going on with a family member. Also my brother overdosed in the facility and they NEVER contacted us we found out through a friend and when we called them to find out where he was they said they would call back and NEVER did. We had to find my brother in the icu by calling a bunch of hospitals and when we went to just believe to get answers they said they had gotten a new system and didn’t have his emergency contact paper on file. They deserve to rot and go through the pain that my family did. Shame on them!!

Im thankfully sober now but this place did not help. Sure the food was good the beds were comfortable but I was there for 30 days and did nothing but go on a smoke break every 30 mins. They are inexperienced unprofessional and just incompetent. I wouldn't refer anyone to this place ever. This is life or death stuff here and they don't know what they are doing.

I will be honest and say this is the only rehab I've ever been in but also admit because of that I will NEVER choose to do inpatient again! MOST of the techs are amazing loving and generally care, however I feel I did relate to most of them because they are in recovery. My biggest gripe with my personal experience is that my counselor was the ONLY one who wasn't an addict herself and I feel shouldn't even be employed there, I'm not the only one that feels this way also her fellow coworkers share this belief. She barely spoke with me one on one and judged me from before we spoke. Also ALL the websites I read state you have a counselor from detox on which is untrue it's not until detox is over and still may take days/weeks to meet them unless you tell them you want to leave that is, then they care about you oh so much, not really you are just a price tag. They say you can leave whenever you want, "this isn't jail" but they do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to convince you to stay with mulipantion. Their routine is just that routine and very repetitive so you hear the same things in group time and time again. They also separate into small groups with your therapy with your counselor is mainly done, you barely get one on one time. Due to that fact I barely spoke and when I expressed why to my counselor she pretty much said too bad but not in those words. (I didn't feel comfortable opening up in my group setting not just because I knew someone in that group bit this person could give my information to someone else that she was friends with that hates me and that person could and I believe would have used it to keep me from my goal of getting my children back) later, the day I was discharged I was informed my counselor could have been charged. I hadany more issues as well upon discharge I was never given my papers or my meds and had to drive back more than once to get this all because quite a few of my meds were still missing after I went back the first time. The only thing that helped me stay clean was the detox program and myself. I could keep going on about how unorganized this place really is but it doesn't matter really because if you don't comply with what whoever says at the time youll be told no cigg next smoke break, even got to the point if it wasn't your fault too bad no smoke bteak, this is why one of the first questions asked is what is your favorite cigg of the day, pathic

My husband just recently was at this rehab facility in PA. The techs at night are horrible he said... I would call the nurses station because their is a seven day block that you can't speak to your loved ones.. I would ask how my husband is doing n they would tell me he's great,he ate,he's sociable,he's standing 20feet from me I will give him a message you called n my husband said the whole time he was Their he received only one message!! Mind you I called everyday for ten days.. when the time came that he can call me theirs no privacy they listen to every word he says.. time limit is exactly 3minutes to speak..my husband has been telling them for days that he doesn't feel right he needs to see a doctor n they said it's ok it's normal mind you he was done with Detox.. My husband is home with a pneumonia can't take no pain meds only Tylenol... Think n think twice about this place in PA. Do your homework I kick myself in the butt that I didn't take him to Marwarth... But trust me if my husband needs help again that is where he will be going as an out patient... that you Just Believe for helping him in detox he's a fighter n will continue fighting.. but you all suck on listening to your patience needs also you all sound height yourselves when answering the phones so keep that in mind when your patience are saying something is wrong with them they don't feel right it doesn't hurt to make sure it's not something else thank you!!!!

I enjoyed the people I have met and some of the staff are the sweetest most caring people but there\'s a good amount of staff that were not helpful in any way as well as being very belittling. I am not one to complain and I made minor complaints throughout my time there and it was as if they either did not care enough to do something about it or they try to turn it on you. One of the techs has the kindest heart and she is the one who truly made me want to stay there but there are some adjustments in the program that need to be made

The facility is a very well based 12 step program.They are a fairly new facility in carbondale and every new facility has to work out kinks that what happens when opening a new facility only open over a yr.Overall they are great.If you can get a good.. counselor you are in amazing hands! The techs spend to much time gossiping and on their cell phones.. Overall just believe is a great facility..The owner is an awesome women and..I love these women for all they do..they really care about you...it's just the little things..staff and using their cell phones on duty for personal use..and sharing personal client information by techs to other clients..as I have had a tech tell me things is wrong on all levels.

Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about the disease process of addiction and help the clients work toward a long term recovery plan. They offer suggestions and solutions to the questions and problems faced in early recovery. They offer clients aftercare programs to help get the ball rolling in beginning a sober lifestyle. They help clients feel safe and supported throughout their journey.

The best Recovery Center Ive ever been to as a client and worked for as a staff member. The treatment i recieved was so amazing. Most of the staff being in recovery makes it so comfortable to open up. As long as i was willing to help myself there was nothing they weren\'t willing to do to help me. Ill forever be grateful to Just Believe! Thank you.

As someone who has went through the recovery center/halfway house connected to the recovery center, I would have to say I definitely received the insight that I needed on addiction and met wonderful people who were extremely determined to stay clean and sober. With that being said, there were some staff members who were quite closed minded and very belittling, especially while I stayed in the halfway house. I did not like the disorganization within the facility, no one had answers on how long my insurance covered once I had gotten there, and I had medication misplaced numerous times.

Employees are recovering also. Food is good. They go out of their way to get client into treatment, rides, scholarships. They truly care about their clients from Administration to techs. Not enough activity while in residential not equipped for handicapped or elderly mixed with regular clients ratio of clients to tech is unbalanced. There is massage, chiropractic help, meetings, councilors. and groups. Clients get to go to the lake/park or/and the YMCA for recreation. Smoking outside on scheduled times is allowed. Employees truly care about the client's well being, and are grateful to see clients blossom and get well.

Everyone who works there seems to be spiritually, mentally, and physically healthy. They aren't distracted by the business end of things, their only focus seems to on the wellness of patients. It is located within a town, so there is not much in way of nature on the property, they have to leave the property to get out into nature. Best treatment facility I have every worked for. There is a strong sense of community and purpose behind everything they do. This is more than just a rehab. It is a transformative experience.

As a member of the Just Believe TEAM and having worked for other agency's in the past, I can say that this facility cares deeply about the treatment that it provides. Each client is shown care, compassion, and understanding and their treatment is tailored to their individual needs. I love what this company represents.

Even before I arrived at Just Believe Recovery Center in Carbondale, I felt relieved that people genuinely cared for me when I couldn’t care for myself. I cannot think of anyone who DIDN’T go above and beyond during my treatment. Their dedication to making sure that all of my needs were met (medical, psychological, nutritional, financial, travel, and safety) allowed me to focus on my recovery. When I had questions or concerns - there was always someone ready with the answer. After completing detox and inpatient, Just Believe was able to accommodate me with their Sober Living and Out Patient services as well assisting me in connecting with local 12 Step meetings. Even though this was my first experience with alcohol and drug rehab, I am confident in saying that Just Believe Recovery Center of Carbondale is one of, if not the best opportunities if you want to start a new way of living clean and sober.

Holistic Approach. Individualized Treatment Planning. Lots of time for Individual Therapy. Biofeedback Bed. Massage Therapy. Therapists who care. Residential Program was only 28 days, I wish I could have stayed longer. One of the most professional and therapeutic environments I have ever been in. The therapists really take time to work with the patients. And they offered a transitional living program which made out patient therapy incredibly easy to complete. This type of treatment center is very rare.

They focus on step work & they have a staff that genuinely cares. The building used to be a hospital, so it has a little bit of an institutional feel. However the warmth of the staff makes up for it. This facility doesn't just talk about the 12 steps, it breaks them down in a workshop like manner making it a very simple & understandable process. Many people make statements like "Who, I never heard anybody put it like that!"

JBRC is a very tight knit center that treats everyone as they would want their own family treated. Communication on clients progress,behaviors and mental state is outstanding. There is always someone other then tech. staff on duty and nurse is available 24/7 if a client needs to talk or has a medical concern. I think more one one one counseling is preferred by the clients JBRC n Carbondale pa is a very fair & honest program, the staff is either in recovery themselves or has had family members in recovery. our main job as techs are to observe & report but just as important is the experience strength & hope the staff offers.From security to management everyone takes the time to know the clients to make them feel welcomed, loved & never judged.

1-1 communication with clients. Techs have a better understanding of clients and can relate with them on a personal level being as how all Techs are in recovery themselves. The nursing staff are very well trained and all have degrees in their respective fields. Here at Just Believe Recovery Center, the Techs, Counselors, Maintenance, Security, etc. are all family. Upon first walking through the front doors, you are immediately greeted with a smile and a "Hello." You will always feel at home here.
