I just turned 21 and am 1 year clean as of today from meth and heroin. Morris Village worked miracles for me and provided this support I needed. This is the first and only rehab I have ever been to.

I am very shocked and appalled at the way my daughter was done the first day she arrived at this facility..even tho she went there from a different facility she was stripped search..most of her things were taken from her..she wasn't given the medications prescribed to her by the other facility even tho she was having a severe anxiety attack..she went there for help but instead of helping her it seems they are degrading and humiliating her...she is not a criminal that came in off the street so what was the purpose of the strip search..and they only get 1 phone call a day and its only for 6 minutes..God bless her for trying to get help.. I pray that God watches over her while she is trying to hang in there..

How long does it take to get in Morris Village for court ordered rehab? It's been weeks and they won't respond. Disappointed.

A loved one of mine was forced to endure a daily lack of respect while he was already feeling despair. He was treated like a criminal rather than an individual in treatment. Activities were degrading and he witnessed the nursing staff in the main cottage engorging themselves during working hours in patients' quarters rather than during properly scheduled breaks in a staff lounge. He stated that he was often hungry because patients were served small meals that a dog would not eat. It breaks my heart that he and others were treated as though punished. This is not acceptable and this post will also be shared on pages that you will not have control over editing.

I was a patient there in 1998. I am still sober by the grace of God today. The facility resembled more of a prison than a treatment facility. I remember lining up for phone calls home. If the dinner hr ended and the line was to.lo g you didnt get to call home. I was bullied by the patients there. It was a nightmare detox center. I didnt really participate because I was afraid I wouldn't get to leave. They loved scare tactics. Thank God for the A.A. meetings as they were the only authentic experience. 21 days of hell for sure. And yes I paid for the services rendered. The only thing I contribute to me being sober this many yrs later from Morris Village is their fear factor. I would love for them to change my view on the facility

I have just recently left this facility for alcoholism & benzodiazepines use. Whilst initially sceptical due to these negative reviews. It ended up being one of the best things I could have ever done. The staff are fantastic, especially the case counselors, If you have a bad attitude and are just plain disrespectful and rude then they will respond to that negativity. The staff truly are all there to help you. It's not about the $$s for them. It has an amazing educational program, concentrating on relapse prevention, psychology therapy, family dynamics, health education and so much more, regarding getting clean and staying clean. The food is good, this is not an ala carte restaurant. The accommodations are really quite nice and very clean. Again this is no 5 star hotel or spa. It's a treatment facility. But I'll tell you, it changed my life. You get out of it what you put in. Don't blame the facility for your bad attitude and reluctance to grow and learn. This place can and does save lives.

I went here for their 28 day treatment program. I can honestly say that the therapists employed to work with patients here are great. The nursing staff is rude and God forbid you ask for something. Whether it be a pillow or a smile. I avoided the nurses at all costs. They treat you like you are about an inch tall when you are already feeling bad about yourself. The point in seeking help is supposed to be your very first step in the right direction. You should be proud of yourself because there are many who do not even make it to the door. If they chose this profession it is not the fault of the patient if you are overworked and underpaid.. Find a different choice of work if you are only going to take your frustrations out on the ones seeking help.

My son was sent to Morris Village addicted to meth and physchotic, hearing voices, and dillusional. Because he was violent they released him after two weeks and released him on the streets, even though he was and is not from the Columbia area. I do not have any idea where my son is or if he is ok. Morris Village is NOT the place for anyone to be sent to for treatment. I begged them to send him to a mental hospital but they also refused. I was also lied to the week before he was released. I was told they only release two people a day and my son was the fourth person released. I was also told that he would not be released on his own on the streets and that is also not true. I was told that a plan would be put into place in writing before a release was done, and all they did was put him in front of a judge who released him because he did not want to be there. I am not only heartbroken I am angry and scared. Do not put your loved one at Morris Village.

My dad was court ordered to be at this facility. Within 4 days a case worker called and said he was being discharged for not wanting to participate in the program. First, if you are there to get help for drug or alcohol treatment I\'m sure some people come in a little reluctant to receive treatment because most likely it was a loved one that put them there. Second, I called the probate court here in Dorchester county and they were outraged that morris village was trying to release him after only 4 days of being there. I called the probate court and was able to get him a little more time there. My dad is an alcoholic and suffers with extream PTSD and anxiety issues. He is a Vietnam vet. We thought having him committed would help with the alcohol issue. The staff was given his medications and list of when and how much he was to take upon check in and was made aware of his anxiety and PTSD issues. My dad was there for a little over a week when again we were told to he was being discharged. This time it came from a judge and the judge approved it because he felt my dad wasn\'t benefiting from the treatment... I\'m very outraged at the condition of my dad when picking him up and plan to submit a complaint with whomever runs that place. They are not sensitive to the patient during the process of seeking treatment. What kind of facility let\'s their staff yell in the face of someone who has a sever case of PTSD?

My daughter was there in September 2012 and during visitations HER DRUG ADDICT FRIENDS WERE ALLOWED TO VISIT HER. When I would visit there they all were there and we had no family time. She \"graduated\" to go immediately to a DRUG HOUSE...In July 2016 she \"graduated\" again and within 24 hours had several prescriptions of Xanax and was in a DRUG HOUSE the second day with another \"graduate\". Court ordered rehab is big JOKE on the families.

The facility is located next a mental health facility you are assigned cottages, you are only able to interact with people in your cottage. Some of the staff are recovering addicts, so they are better equipped to work with some than some one who is not.

I spent 30 days here for opiates. I asked to see the doctor non stop for help with withdrawals. I NEVER got to see the doctor but everyone else saw the doctor within a day or two of being admitted. The law states you must have committed a drug related crime in the past 12 months to be committed. I haven\'t been in any trouble in 20 years. I was admitted BC the probate judge said anyone who is prescribed narcotics is a drug addict. I requested to be drug tested twice during the 2 court appearances to get me committed. I was denied. The court\'s doctor alsodidnt even look at my 20 years of medical records with recommendations from 5 doctors (surgeons, and doctors I had to see thru the referral process). My back has been broken twice and my neck broken once plus my arm was separated from my body at the shoulder and reattached by 2 surgeries. This has left me crippled with spinal diseases and too much to name. I am prescribed a narcotic that is abuse proof and cannot get a tolerant person high. All it took was a greedy family member who thought if I were committed she would get everything in my fathers will. Plus she is good friends with the local probate judge so they completely ignored my case. I wasn\'t even given a public defender and they still held the hearing. That being said Morris Village wasn\'t too bad. I feel the counselors actually care. I\'m just not happy that I did nothing wrong and got committed BC I\'m a chronic pain patient of 20 years. As soon as the judge ruled against me they took my rights to own guns and vote. Finally you can forget calling Morris village and getting an answer or call back. I was supposed to be given a completion certificate but BC I was released at 8:30am my counselor wasn\'t there yet and didn\'t think ahead to get it ready the day before. I\'ve been calling daily for a month with no reply BC the judge told me if I didn\'t have the certificate in 3 days from now I would be held in contempt of court and sentenced to 30 days and then sent back to Morris Village for 30 more days. Oh yeah, they also charge you $350/day while in there so when you get out you owe the state around $12,000. I feel this is the main objective of MV, which is to be a money racket. I went through all this BC I was in a car wreck and was prescribed a weak narcotic. I\'m no criminal and haven\'t been in any sort of trouble in almost 20 years. All they see is $$ signs.

I honestly didnt think there were trying to help me but i thought i was doing the right thing . i actually willingly went into laradac myself and also had to do adsap but they end up running my things together and wanted me to go to rehab and they also told me my insurance would cover it which i have medicaid well first choice and i was like okay bc i dont have any other insurance and come to find out in the end afterwards Morris Villiage sent me a bill of $443.87 so i called several times after i finally was able to talk to someone and she basically told me that my consulor at laradac lied to me and that i was responsible for the bill u think ur doing the right thing when in all reality ur being lied to and now morris village sent me something saying they was gonna take it out of my taxes smh and they did too this is so sad some people have kids and are trying to better themselves and its all about money at the end of the day they truly dont care it all boils down to a dollar sign which is sad very sad .

This is unconscionable the way this place is run...it should be shut down. An embarrassment yo any rehab situation. My son traveled over one thousand miles back home to SC to come here and they did every thing possible to frustrate and antagonize him. I have ZERO anything good to say about this place.

Our first involvement with this Center, and it is NOT favorable!! We have had the addicts counselor call our daughter and went so far as to attempt to \"Counsel\" her privately?? She is a victim of CDV and her EX, was a drug addict before they ever met, and continued to use secretly throughout their marriage. This place should have no support from the State of South Carolina and I will be voicing my opinion of this with the Governors office on down!!

The level of integrity and dedication of the staff makes this facility very effective. The decisions of some of the nursing staff need to be reviewed carefully by a supervisor...The facility needs to be cleaner.
