The facility is beautiful but they are so unorganized. It is what I make it . My issue is that I was guaranteed that my insurance would cover everything which it did, but they sent my urine screens to a lab who is billing me for 45,000$ now . It was 7 urine screens . My insurance paid 1,400$ toward each one . So every urine screen u get billed for about 8,000$ each screen. Awesome job Mbhatc way to bankrupt a 30 yr old who just got clean and now has to deal with this . My insurance paid miami beach 100% of what they billed which was over 30,000$ but there so greedy where they purposefully send drug screens to a lab that that charges outrageous amount of money. So thank you Miami Beach Holistic Addiction Treatment Center for bankrupting me and being greedy be close the near 50,000$ that insurance paid wasen t enough for you

Hi Travis! I remember your situation. I was there and witnessed the whole thing. That made me question the legitimacy. First, they booked me a flight while speaking to me when I was drunk. Second things were not as promised when I arrive there. Third I witnessed a woman leaving and when she did they just put her out on the street with her bags. Fourth because they would not allow me access to the phone I had to sneak phone calls to my daughters to book me a flight back home. Fifth. I packed my bags in anticipation of leaving. Sixth. When they realized I was leaving I was called into a meeting with every counselor and every counselor attempted to make me feel like a piece of shit for leaving. They didn't care that I regretted flying there from Indiana to Florida while leaving my two daughters at home. Seventh I was very lucky that I have my bags packed and that I had a flight booked and I called Uber and flew home. Eighth despite telling me that I would not be billed and they would except my insurance payment as payment in full, I received a bill for $7000. Ninth I sent and extensive letter and my bill then was reduced to $320, which I paid. Tenth I begin receiving calls from them saying I still owe them money and I just ignore the calls and eventually they were claiming I never paid them the $320. I had to send them a copy of my canceled check to prove that I paid it. Do you not ever consider going to this place.

Living areas are deplorable. Vans used for transportation don't have the seats locked in place completely unsafe. One phone for thirty plus clients in the residence. They "love" you until your insurance runs out, then you got to go. Don't let them tell you they will fly you home completely not true!

Where to start. If you are seeking a new way of life, do not come here. The truth would be available to you if the owners didn't force every single employee to burry it with BS reviews. The owners got into this to make a quick buck, but they didn't realize whay truley went it to. It's all about the money, patient care comes second. This center has zero organization, one of the highest employee turnover rate in south florida, and again, two horrible human beings funding the whole thing. Some of the staff at the center may be well intended, there is no doubt in that. However, the head of clinical team boasts years sober but his arrogance and greed burry any effort. This is by no means a holistic program. They do nothing holistic. They do some accupuncture and bill your insurance heavy for it. They will lie to your face, and chase you for money for months to follow. Steer clear. Find yourself a real program that has been around for more than a year and doesnt have a corrupt undertone. There are so many. They call themselves the best PHP in the country, that is just laughable. This place is a joke. They have honest hard working people quit their jobs to come work here, promising a great salary, knowing they will turn around and fire them once the census fluctuates at all. They have worked hard to bury the real reviews, it's a shame because treatment is for people looking to escape the dark pits of addiction. That's something that takes a lot of care, love, sympathy, and structure. MBHATC can offer nothing of the sort.

The holistic approach for addiction was new to me. My mindset was to embrace it, and it was very helpful and enlightening. While there, changes occured almost daily due to it being a new facility. Nothing that could not be dealt with. The staff...especially the techs!!! were very kind and professional! Again, the technicians were a Godsend! From start to finish, my body and spirit improved. I feel like I made lifelong friends with my fellow recoveries there! Coming up on six months clean and sober! It works if you work it!!! Thank you MBHATC! The Miami weather in winter ain't bad either! Thank you everyone!

I was a patient at MBHATC in November and into December of 2016 and I now have six months clean. This was my first rehab and I have mostly good feelings about my experience there. The holistic treatments and counselor were great. The best part of the treatment were the techs and the nightly AA and NA meetings. I recommend patients to try to get as much as they can from each other and the people who are addicts themselves!

I was a patient here and I beleive it to be a scam. Was there for 2 weeks and never had class, seen my therapist 1. They went through 9 employees. Total kaos. There was drugs brought in. My personal things that were locked up were stolen. I felt as though my treatment was totally ignored due to them running around trying to get other patients from running away.

This treatment center was a joke. I felt as though this was a scam. The center went through 9 employees while I was there. It was total kaos, Mismanaged, my personal items that were to be kept by staff in a (safe) or safe place was stolen items such as purse wallet medication. It seemed as though the mismanagement of meds was a issue I returned home with 2 bottles of someone else's prescription in which I believe my insurance paid for. There was clients being allowed in whom had drugs on them. They were so out of it that they were dropping them everywhere. My safety and others were at risk. I beleive 3 people had to be rushed by ambulance to the hospital.

My wife went there for treatment. She said that they went through 9 staff during her stay. Very unorganized, unstructured, her meds were mixed up. She sometimes waited a week or more for her meds. This place appears to be a scam and very sad for the people who are going to be treated. She was in danger from other clients bring drugs in and not kicked out. This cost alot for no treatment.

MBHATC reads every comment posted on review sites as it strives to learn from the patient experience. It is very rewarding when we see positive posts and at the same time we always try to improve. We have a staff that "has been there before". They truely understand and care for patients and their families.

I had never honestly thought that a one on one with a therapist would work for me but, at MBHATC I had a therapist and he was phenomenal he did not only really help with underlying issues in such a short period of time he also gave me the tools to process these emotions. Today i am Grateful for this treatment center because i actually feel confident in the next step. (this is an actual Client, writing this review upon completion of treatment) PGL

MBHATC strives to have excellent therapists who understand recovery and what patients are going through. Most of the therapists have been there before and can relate to the patient. They understand what is takes to navigate through this process. They feel rewarded when they see patients as well as their families enter a brighter future. In regards to Management we can say that MBHATC Clinical Director has 25 years experience and only wants the best for a patients recovery. The Clinical and Executive Directors allow patients to knock on their door any time.

N/A
The therapists are outstanding and the techs are incredible. I gave a 0 star on treatment effectiveness due to the horrible mismanagement by the managing team of 2 people which ALWAYS distracted us clients from recovery... Expect plenty of lies from them. The male residence is a converted 10 room motel which needs extreme updating. My room smelled like sewer and all they did was put in air fresheners. The plumbing also backed up into the sink the last wk of my 45 day stay. The meals and nutrition received only 1 star because we went grocery shopping weekly so you picked your own food. Problem is, the credit card used to pay for the food (provided by management) was constantly being denied so sometimes it took up to 3 visits to actually bring food back to residence. Strong suggestion to the owners--start caring about lives more than profit, utilize the great therapy and tech staffs and get rid of 3 guys. They\'ll run you into bankruptcy.

Miami Beach Holistic Addiction Treatment Center is a wonderful facility. As a former employee of other treatment centers, I have seen first hand how this treatment center stands out from the rest. The staff truly cares about every single person that walks in the door. Everyone\'s individual needs are kept a priority and accommodations are made. The facility itself is new, beautiful and state of the art. It is a luxury facility that serves to treat the underlying causes of addiction. I strongly suggest this treatment center to anyone struggling with addiction.

As a former employee of other treatment facilities, I have seen first hand that this treatment center is in no way shape or form in it for the \"money\". They spend time with each individual client and accommodate in every way that they can. The amenities are state of the art and almost every piece of the facility is new. I have seen great success within this treatment center and it stands out from the rest of them in South Florida. I am proud to be associated with this facility.

The establishment is a scam, they are looking for clients who have insurance that will pay and once the insurance is paying they keep you there against your will. If you ask to leave they say you are free to go, but we will not give you your ID, credit cards or phone. Most clients are from out of state so with out these items you have no safe way home. So you are 100% kept against your will. Therapy does not exist, so if your hoping for mind body and soul healing look elsewhere because it will not happen here. As far as food you are given $65.00 a week to feed your self. The food is kept in a community kitchen where other clients can and do eat your food so that whole set up is very stressful. The home is an old run down home that they have tried to hold togethe, but really is in poor condition. When you walk outside your welcomed to weeds and the strong smell of ciggerette ashes. The clients throw ciggerette butts all over the lawn and no one cleans up the home or the yard. I would not recommend this establishment to even someone I hate. I\'m still having nightmares of being held captive by the staff and probably will for a long time.

The Clinical team is excellent and works around the clock. The care for the patients recovery as well as the family. Not many weaknesses. Lives change for the better one day at a time at MBHATC.

The staff is genuine, honest, caring, and dedicated. Clinical effectiveness, meals, nutrition, holistic approach, location, fresh Miami Beach air, comfortable residences. The staff's experience, dedication, passion, and care is evident immediately from the initial admissions process. They are understanding, genuine, and efficient. Once you arrive to see the facilities and receive a bunch of smiling, warm hellos, you kind of know you are not alone anymore. As the staff described it as they are here to facilitate growth and that everything will be alright. Their individualized treatment modalities, holistic approach, and the ability to keep the patients comfortable makes it an environment to begin the healing process. I would recommend this to anyone searching for anyone suffering from this devistating disease of addiction and mental health disorders.

I would like to say as a former employee of Mbhatc that these people truly care about those they help. I was terminated and even though I don\'t agree with the reasons I will still say that the services they provide are top notch. The admissions team is honest and straight forward. The clinical team actually cares! This is hard to find in Florida treatment. As far as working for them goes ito is always tough to get paid to help people as I am in recovery but I haven\'t worked for a better place that does it. It was truly an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this company and I would recommend them to anyone.Experience,strength,hope. This is how they help.
