Great
Effective treatment center. Good assortment of care providers assure that you'll find a good match for your needs. Some caregivers were a poor match for my needs.

The best thing about Mercy is that SOME of the staff are very helpful, (while others have no idea what they're doing.) They do make it easy to treat a substance abuse issue simultaneously with other mental health issues and, (depending on WHO you work with,) the staff can be very effective at creating and assisting you to complete your treatment plans. More than half of the staff, either doesn't know how to do their job or they try to do a job that they're not qualified for. They will kick you out randomly, for little to no reason at all. If you relapse, instead of helping you when you need it, they will discharge you. Most of the staff are rude, but the worst thing about this place is that they closed down so they don't offer services anymore, such as prescriptions (that I need,) although they did help refer me to a new doctor. This place is closed down now, so inorder to get assistance with your substance abuse issue, you will have to travel far away to participate in an in-patient or out-patient rehab facility, OR you'll have to pay out the A*s for a private doctor.

Group therapy, good therapists, a lot of activities to do, able to spend time outside and see the city. No internet connection, not a very nice facility, not much to choose from for meals. The staff was really nice and non judgmental, diverse staff. Staff members were all experienced and offered good treatment.

Helped me get my life back together, taught me mindfulness and other coping skills. Taught me how to do things again but not how to enjoy them or know why it was good to be doing them. Taught me to be better but not feel better. This is the only treatment program in the area and isn't very serious. If your problem is more serious I would recommend going out of state.

staff was excellent. Some had been in treatment there themselves years ago. Not being able to go outside was an issue. Having nothing to do but sit around during the day waiting for groups.

they seem to assume after you are clean you will just continue, not understanding how easy it is to return to what you have been doing....

Mercy Recover Center has a mission of serving the needs of those captured by addiction, and help them succeed to be free to live in their potential. The facility is supported by dedicated staff and recovering volunteers. Could use more staff.
