Specialization

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

    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.

    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 .

    Worst place ever

      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\".
