Specialization

  • Outpatient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

    Stay away-they only care about money!!! The owners of this place are cheap cheap cheap, they put on an act like they care but between the horrible cheap food to horrible cheap beds to the nasty cheap chemicals & machines used to wash clothes that ruin them, this alone show the lack of care. They only offer the same nasty fried breakfast every morning, along with soda machine and fake juice machine. At first I really thought this place was special and they really cared about the clients, but I learned the hard it was all bull. To start the detox room I was in made me sick from mildew and of course they didnt care. Gossip between staff and clients (especially the nurses and techs) is out of control and they dont care how this affects the other clients. Then instead of taking responsibility for it, they blamed me for being upset and without notice discharged me and without letting me make plans of where to go. These ppl are scum and in the end only care about themselves and money, NOT THE CLINETS.

    Horrible experience!!! My son is still very much addicted after receiving "treatment" for two weeks. The counselor met with him TWO times and told the insurance he did not need 24 hour care. REALLY! They were rude they were unprofessional and mostly they were heartless. We traveled from far to go seek this great treatment and we were very let down. This facility is more concerned with collecting insurance money than they are with helping their patients. I had a lot of shenanigans going on at this facility. Maybe they should not be a coed treatment because the staff doesn't seem to have any control there they are to busy throwing people OUT of treatment. I NOT recommend this joke of a place to anyone. Now to find some real help for my son after they took our money and returned our son sicker than ever......

    The Dr is a good man and truly understands addiction. Some of the counselors are good at LVRC some are not. The janitororial, kitchen and laundry staff are great. There are a lot of good people there in a flawed framework. If you truly want some help and have money to burn then LVRC could be an option. However even though the facade looks good it has not been maintained very well. Dirty uncomfortable furniture. Beds are worse, plus in the residential treatment wing it usually smells like an open sewer. The owner of LVRC came by a few times driving his Ferrari. Hmmmm. If you are serious about wanting recovery find a good AA or NA group and sponser and you\'ll save a lot of money and not have to go through a step 4 to overcome your resentment to a rehab center.

    In response to the other reviews I will say this about LVRC: despite its moderate success with Opioid Induced Hyperalgesia and the pain program for chronic pain patients, it uses questionable practices to get, at best, obfuscated results. While its true that LVRC and Dr. are both very accredited, lets be honest about what that means. An example of \"accredited\": Best Doctors, a vanity club, is an organization that hands out awards for doctors who obtain favorable reviews from friends and then pays a fee for a Lucite-bound \"award.\" As far as ABAM goes, if you are a doctor and a drug addict, fill out some forms, take a test, and then you\'re in. That says it all about Dr. I was a patient there, I\'m a physician myself, and a good friend of an employee who recommended it. That being said I found the place deplorable in many ways. Rehab clinics post few if any long term results because there aren’t any. Rehab is mostly a placebo effect, and by that I mean they try very hard to brainwash a patient from the very beginning with employee \"testimonials\" which are biased and self-serving––in governments around the world its called “propaganda.” I went to LVRC on my own accord to detox safely and treat my Hyperalgesia, Fibromyalgia, and acute Temoromandibular disorder. What I received, after the appropriate and acceptable chemical detox program, was highly mysterious attempted spirituality reprogramming in place of treatment. Not exactly the Mayo Clinic, not exactly a health spa, more of quack-peddlers dream. I did find the nursing staff to be well-informed, disciplined, and professional, even to us medical professional patients. They are to be congratulated. The non-medical staff hammers on with 12 step slogans and assertions that the patient will die, yes, DIE, if they don’t believe in concepts of higher powers and spiritual peer meetings outside the facility... Yet the 12 steps and NA/AA meetings are just cheap and easy for them to substitute for real, scientific-based treatment, of which I found none. (No evidence exists of the efficacy of 12 step programs.) That’s what all rehab clinics do according to Dr. at NIDA, National Institute of Health, in Wash. DC. She is the premier researcher on addiction in America. I questioned her at length and she was highly skeptical of rehab as a whole. They are all the same. She suggested I interview other doctors there at NIH. My findings to date: The reason that so many medical organizations accredit rehab centers is because of the Mental Health Bill that was put in action. Basically, the US Government grants rehab clinics taxpayer money, and most doctors at NIH won’t come out against rehab clinics because that would be attacking the hand that feeds them. NIH receives money under that bill and criticizing it would be unbeneficial. This is direct from three doctors I asked at NIH, but none would go on record and I fully understand why. But rehab clinics know this only too well. Its no wonder the Internet at LVRC is tightly controlled and edited for content and website accessibility. Addiction Patients by and large recover on their own says the Harvard Medical Letter on addiction. But rehab clinics claim they are responsible only. Those that don’t recover like Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen and just ordinary citizens are given the blame by society, not the ineffective and expensive treatment facilities. Most families research buying a new car more than a rehab clinic for their loved ones said an article in the Washington Post. I believe that. There is a very well researched book entitled “Inside Rehab”, its well worth reading.
