Great
I am a recovering addict and this place saved my life. I went in having depression, anxiety attack, and a meth addict. I didn't want to live but the staffs and fellow residents really support me throughout my recovery and now i am clean for 4 months and equip to face the world instead of just want to use meth to kill myself slowly. You have to be humble and really surrender all so the program can work you and not attempt to run your own progarm.

The luxurious Rena B saved my life, and If you are ready it can and will save yours..the entire staff from the kitchen to the director has something to offer IF you have an open mind and are READY for a new experiance... layaside everything you think you know about the steps, the book, the program, your disease (yes it is a disease), yourself, and ESPECIALLY everything you think you know about GOD.. You can always pick those beliefs back up later so don't throw them away just lay them aside for 60 or 90 days ....every single staff member has knowledge and are eager to give you some of that knowledge but you have to be open to receive it. You get feed physically, mentally, and spiritually. .i didn't want to use names out of respect for your privacy but y'all know who you are I LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ... You all have given me bits and pieces knowledge, love, guidance, strength, encouragement and hope I am forever grateful for the Rena B...

This place should be under government review. It appears that they week internal controls and they don't appear to have the patients best interest in mind. The staff is ill equipped to handle the seriousness of which they are being entrusted to do. They have a high turn-over rate which shows that they have week controls. They process payments and provide no accounting for those payments. The premises are not well kept, it looks like any run down ghetto, project housing unit. Suggestions- Prepare a mission statement and stick to it. replace the existing staff and get people in there that are professionals, not X addicts with limited use of the therapeutic techniques and languages. Bottom line this place is a mess and it will not treat anyone's addiction.

Excellent
I was a client at Rena B twice for over 8 months both times. I am not from LA and this was my first treatment center. It was amazing start to my journey of recover and now I have over 2 years clean and sober, I have a full time job, own my own company, and I am doing amazing things with my life. This facility teaches you how to live in the real world, and yes the staff is a little tough but the REAL WORLD, is tougher and the lessons you learn there are to set you off into the world clean and sober and STAY CLEAN AND SOBER. I also got my GED at the Royal Palms which is amazing as well (they paid for everything) and now my life is amazing. Thanks

Unfortunately Mary Lind no longer exists. Social model recovery centers has taken over. The days of dragging people with no money off of skid row or out of McArthur Park are over. We have VERY VERY few indigent beds and even at that it is200.00 to come in. I've been there longer than a minute seen lots of changes, we accept AB109 clients SSI SDI CAL WORKS BUT AGAIN ON A VERY LIMITED BASIS. It is 3,500.00 per month unless your insurance will cover you. I can't remember the Rena B ever being as empty as it is now we all must pray if we generate income we will be able to help more indigent clients. In 2011 we nearly closed and that's part of the reason for all the money where can you live for 266.00 per mo NOWHERE God has our backs

After I learned about my disease in this facility and found that it was ran by recovering addicts I was able to trust the process having seen proof standing in front of me. ... It was stern but we as addicts play the game so well if we didn't have someone who knew the game we could run the game... but not here. I was [upset] at first but then that's what I needed to do was get [upset], not be able to control the outcome of the drama and eventually not wanting to be apart of the drama. After completing the program I volunteered for a year then worked there for 2 years after that. This was one of the best things that has happened to and for me. Rena B. has a staff of well educated (street and book) counselors that will help you through the process and that was what I needed.....HELP.
