There is NO air conditioning in the male and some of the female housing. We have had heat waves and they have not cared enough, let alone for our pets, to have AC. They pack people into baking hot houses. They moved everyone into crowded apartments, and moved others out of a few, that are now closed off- just to save that extra buck by not having electricity running in those ones. Discovery Housing (the housing you stay at during treatment) and Morning side are under the same owners, but if you say anything about the housing, they will say that Morningside has nothing to do with Discovery- UNLESS it's for a $500 pet deposit. They refuse to do anything about the AC, and we all have been telling them for WEEKS to fix this. Nothing's done. Who is going to listen to a bunch of junkies though, right? They seem to not give too much of a damn. They care somewhat more when family members that are paying for this have a problem with them. You can keep your pet at housing, but you CANNOT bring your pet with you to treatment. A lot of which they promise in the premises of the rehab actually is not there- like the nutritionist and access to a personal trainer. It is inaccurate. They don't even have housekeeping anymore at The Irvine Treatment Center and the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting. The massive Garden Grove Detox facility does not have housekeeping on weekends and gives the entire load of keeping the place up and tidy to one poor housekeeper who is always busting her butt. They have removed many inspiring staff members, and they are now left with overly repetitive groups that lack skill and organization. The only good things left are their yoga, gym, my therapy sessions, and groups with the therapists and a specific case manager. Some things are good. It all should contribute to the mind, body, and spirit. Speaking of the mind, they say that groups are what you make of them, which is true, but when there is an overall consensus of where we say we benefited more from groups then, compared to now- especially with the inherently blatant lack of control within them, there is an issue with what they put out. Sometimes it can be the clients that make the groups feel as if you are in high school again with certain individuals begging for attention. They are constantly trying to save money by cutting staff and cheating us out on our outings when we pay thousands of dollars to be here. They lack business ethics by making so many cuts, and they lack humane ethics by not caring. For example, they let go of an amazing therapist many have been working with on a personal level, and was an irreplaceable asset to the company. Someone that is that critical in such a moment of this time of life in someone's recovery shouldn't have to connect to a new therapist, let alone deal with the emotional tragedy of losing someone that was guiding you along your road to recovery. Also, the psychiatrist is absolutely HORRIFIC. She yells at you if you have too many trial and errors with medication, doesn't look at you in the eyes, always in a hurry, and gives you a diagnosis within 3 minutes of meeting you. I understand her job is to write scripts, but when you put someone on 3 different medications at once, you will not know what is doing what, so of course there are going to be problems. they advertise this to be dual diagnosis, but I personally feel objectified by their doctor- especially when she refers to me as an addict, not by my name. She is constanly frustrated with me and shows no empathy in my struggles with Bipolar Disorder. This all has been detrimental to many, and I speak for anyone I've talked to (which is many) here at Morningside. If I had to do it again, I would have come here, but not with the changes. I'm here to get better mentally, get sober, and also for my certificate for court. At the end of the day, yes this is about recovery, not it being a resort, but we are also paying thousands of dollars to be here to find new ways to experience life in learning to have fun without the use of drugs. Best of luck to you in your journey.
