Philosophy

At the Keystone Center, we acknowledge that the change process is different for every person. One way in which we frame a person’s desire or intention to change is through a model called the Stages-of-Change, which is also known as the Transtheoretical Model. This model suggests that making a difficult change such as stopping the abuse of drugs or alcohol takes place in different stages.

Keystone was my third treatment center, and just like the addiction gets worse for me so did my rehabs. Keystone is like a zoo most days - locked out of rooms all day, overcrowded, court ordered non enthused patients, rehab romance central. However, bottom line is if you truly want to get sober and change your life, you can do this anywhere. I've been sober since Keystone for 3 and a half years - its not the rehabs fault a person does not stay sober. There are better rehabs, but for me with no insurance and out of options, I'm grateful for Keystone.

My son has been in three detox/rehab facilities in the past year and a half. The KeyStone Center seemed to be the most structured and gave us hope for a positive outcome. Halfway through rehab my son\'s insurance ended and on August 1st he was discharged as fast as they could get the paperwork done. The very next day my son went to the state run offices and immediately got his insurance reinstated. But this was all too late for his rehab. I feel that with all the resources the Center had they didn\'t try hard enough to contact the right office to get my son\'s insurance reinstated while he was still there. What a huge disappointment.

Excellent philosophy of care, attentive staff, deep focus on group experience, holistic treatment in terms of modalities: spiritual, artistic, discussion, written work, reading assignments, psychoeducation, relapse prevention, and exploration of past and underlying traumas. Also they met my dietary needs (vegan). Food menu is ordinary and unremarkable; some of the group sessions get repetitive occasionally; some therapists have a tendency to look for faults and problems where they don't exist. My 30 days there were extraordinarily transformative.

Groups all day, very good staff and provides structure. People need more time, every rehab needs to come up w a more successful program many people leave and relapse( not this rehabs fault). They have a lot of good therapy groups but they make them fun so people don't lose attention. Place is really nice

they cover all kinds of addictions, some programs should be longer not how much your insurance will cover. My husband was there 2x. I think they did a hell of a job. It was him that screwed up. When he wanted rehab again that is where he went. They actually asked him to be a councellor. I think the place is great. Staff is great and very understanding.

The counsellors here are VERY ride! Especially the one who deals with \"private insurance\" patients! She was very condescending and got frustrated really easily! Unless you just want to go somewhere to color and do assignments they assign you in 3rd grade, I wouldn\'t go! It\'s mostly homeless people or people on probation who go here because they have to do you are in an environment of people who don\'t really want the help! The food was decent but maybe because I hadn\'t eaten a real meal in months prior. It\'s a bunch of children running around this place and they put you in rooms of 50-100 people. Absolutely NO one-on-ones with a counselor. The only good thing is you get a lot of cigarette breaks but if you really want to stay clean after you leave, don\'t waste your time here! There were also bed bugs in my detox room I found out. This place and staff is a joke! They also do NOT believe in second chAnces. Good luck on your search!

WOW!!! Where to begin...First I\'d say my counselor tried in all aspects except aftercare housing. All that was offered was recovery houses in Kensington... YIKES... I was able to make phone calls and find a decent place on my own. Rehab \"couples\" were allowed to lay on each other on sofas with little intervention by staff. Staff had a room where patients who didnt feel like attending group could lay on floor an sleep. I saw up to 7 males laying there at one time while staff stepped over them to get to their offices. Horrible experience, all it gave me was clean time. I do not recommend this rehab to anyone {especially women} unless all your looking for is a place to clown around...

Program for insured clients was good. Lack of nutritional needs for clients with food allergies or intolerences. Good solid program for insured clients. Accepts state insurance.

I liked the rehab because it was close to home and I felt safe. However, I did not enough how they mixed detox with straight rehab.

Meeting with recovered alcoholics from outside the facility were really helpful. However, they lacked adequate 12-step literature. Had a spiritual awakening at the emergency room, when I went for an injury I suffered at rehab. Shared about it at meeting upon returning an found A.A. as a result.

Strengths included: effectiveness, the food and the counselors who had personally struggled with addiction. However, there is too much unproductive time; they treat the patient's like cattle. It was my first and only rehab, so it worked.

The counselors were great. However, there were too many patients; ask to be put on the third floor.

This facility is horrible and unsafe; I feel as though they have no control over the patients and their behaviors. I am still motivated for recovery and I get the help I need from Alcoholics Anonymous.

The program was great and the treatment was exceptional. It was the community in which it was located and the other patients there that made it a bad stay. Even though I didn't personally pay for the stay I feel you should receive better treatment and they're should be exercise equipment or something like that. Keystone was a great experience. I was there 3 times and completed treatment 2 of those. In my opinion it doesn't matter how good or bad the treatment facility is or isn't. If the addict or alcoholic is not willing and ready to get clean then the whole process will be a waste of time anyway. For those who are ready to change their life around, I feel this place is a great choice to start.

Almost everyone there was court mandated. Very overcrowded. 10 smoke breaks a day was ok, but since it was located in a heavy drug zone, I'm sure kids accessed drugs that way.
