First, can seem military like in treatment type/policies. But, I did fine, I did what I was told. Make sure all your medications are in order, could take forever to get them. Food was good & bad. You'll see, Western omelette is a joke, a tablespoon of spam & bell pepper inside powder eggs. Womens' room is FREEZING cold. Bring extra blankets from home. Bring smokes if you smoke. Bring shower shoes for sure! Shower lighting is too dark. No where to hang clothes. None of the games have the pieces, so don't even bother opening them up.

There was a time when this agency really cared about patients, i went there in 2001, they fed us well, treated us with dignity and respect, presented us with excellent education, group sessions were powerful and i truly believed the philosophy i leaned there of "inpatient treatment is discovery of recovery and we will walk with you during this jouney ' they taught me/us new coping skills that we lacked and so much much much more! But budget cut after cut changed the kitchen into just a place to serve up the delivery jail food (due to limited kitchen and house keeping staff) a bunch of the good counselor retired or resigned between 2012-2014. Most people ive talked to believe its gotten as bad as it is because the newest Director lady took over and hired people that treat patients awful. I dont know if thats true or not but i do know for the most part they stopped treating patients like humans that deserve respect and dignity and turned the place into a punitive culture for patients and what few good staff they have left. f The education is also lacking, group sessions are no longer a safe place to learn how to be honest or even just to be honest for those that were able to be but couldnt because was no longer safe or cohesive group. The place is so punitive with a new philosophy of 'do it my way or get out', i thought counselors were supposed to meet patients where they are at and then help them to recognise, and reach goals. The place has hurt more valnerable people since early 2015 that it makes me sick to think about it. Too bad they cant get some decent leadership. In there and get back to a caring environment for patients to practice the discovery of recovery!

I have stayed clean and sober because of the work I have put into my recovery through the twelve steps. 3 years now continuously battling this monster. KRC gave me a clean and safe place to be, away from the temptations of drinking and using. It was pretty much a 30 day detox. There's a mix of counselors that understand recovery because they are recovering as well. However at least mine spent the majority of group sessions talking about his personal life almost as it was his two hours to brag. The same counselor during his lectures focused more on a comedy routine ( failed comedy routine) than actually showing us tools to apply to our lives. Then there were the counselors that read about addiction and alcoholism in books and tv shows , they have no idea what the hell an addict alcoholic goes through day in and day out. Those counselors have a mentality that they are power and love to flex their muscles. As another commenter ( the trainee ) said they almost get a thrill at humiliating some of the patients. I wasn't on that end of their power trips but certainly witnessed it. Sadly many of those didn't stay in recovery too long after completion. On the other hand 9 out of 10 of the aides that work in the detox area are awesome. The building is old and run down with mysterious smells. They truck in meals made at the county jail. Yes I know it's not supposed to be a resort setting but jail food ? Cmon If this is your only choice then by all means go. Just remember there are groups of people out there that have been in your shoes and have the same disease as you and it doesn't cost a dime. It's also all you can drink coffee .

As a chemical dependency trainee, I spent a year getting Chemical Dependency Professional certification from Olympic College (excellent program; learned a lot there, caring staff and educators) and then moved on to KITSAP RECOVERY CENTER for further training and internship. What a disaster. The culture at KRC was often mocking and punitive toward inpatients. I know because I was present at many staff meetings. Some staff are caring and do their best to help, but there are a toxic few whose cynicism and brutality pollute the culture under the current leadership, playing into the hands of a few counselors who unethically prey psychologically on the fears and confusions of the already harmed patients, counselors who hunt down and dismiss needful patients from treatment on the basis of rigid interpretations of rules and regulations. Powertrippers. Ugly. Do not seek treatment there if you can avoid it. You might end up up with a counselor who has no understanding of addiction just looking to punish your miserable addicted ass.

Best treatment facility ever. One of the first to graduate in 1990 and have stuck with it since then. Two quote\'s that I will always remember from my stay \" When you go to sleep do not count the sheep, talk to the Sheppard\" and \"Do not think your way into a new way of living, live your way into a new way of thinking\". KRC Alumni, Greg

Knowledgeable staff, empathetic nurses, A little outdated This facility is small, but efficient. They got my mom in immediately. They were great in guiding her, without forcing her into treatments for the underlying issue.

Treatment is the focus at KRC...some of the rules are silly, the food is so-so, facility isn\'t the most comfortable in the world, but if you work hard, you\'ll do well and come out a better person. While I was there, the counselors were good and the system was effective overall.

The staff was very caring and nice. You can smoke cigarettes. There are both men and women but you can't talk to the opposite sex or you'll be kicked out. There's nothing to do, you do you lectures counseling and that's it. Your stuck in tiny building with a small out door space, very boring. I definitely learned a lot abut my addiction And the family plan was ok. But it's very stressful to have to follow the same boring schedule everyday in the same building with nothing fun to do.

One size fits all treatment. Based on the Twelve Step Program. Most people in the facility had been coerced through the criminal justice system into being there. Counselors were poorly trained and were not good especially in group counseling...The director and most counselors are narrow minded and refuse to accept modern treatment such as methadone or suboxone. The is a narrow mindedness that permeates the facility. They lack knowledge about motivational interviewing.

Offered meetings, sponsor, 12 steps combined with willingness and a 1 day at a time attitude it works. I was addicted to meth for 21 years. I have been clean and sober for 12 years since January 7, 2014. I have a life today thanks to the AA program. The treatment facility gave some hope and and 30 days of recommendations on what to do. I've seen so much in recovery. It comes down to one important ingredient, the decision not to get loaded and the willingness to do what it takes to stay sober 24 hrs at a time. I really only have my experience.

The treatment was geared toward alcoholics and not addicts. I have had better success re-entering my 12 step program, 21 days was NOT long enough,not after 29 years of using.
