I plan on going back to Palmetto in a couple of months to finish what I started 4 years ago in order to go back to work and just happened upon all of these reviews. I didn’t read all of them, but I read some. I am now 3 years sober, but I can tell you that when I first went to Palmetto in 2017 I was angry and had this grandiosity about me and I was defiant as ever. I was on the brink of death, but to me I had it all figured out and l “didn’t need their help”. Recovery is what you make of it. You have to be WILLING to take their advice. I was one of those stubborn ones and ultimately ended up getting kicked out because of it. I had no legal problems when I first went, but let me tell you... just a couple of days after I left Palmetto I ended up getting arrested and convicted of a FELONY. If you aren’t willing to listen to what they have to offer, and take their advice, then yea, it’s going to be a crappy 90 days. I saw one review stating that the living situation was worse than jail.... hmmmm not sure what jail you have ever been too, but I would take Palmetto over that mess any day... I spent 6 months in a maximum security prison because I was so blitzed out of my mind that I bit a cop who was honestly just trying to keep me from killing my self. For me, I had to make the decision to get sober...I couldn’t be forced into it... but once I finally surrendered everything that they said/did at Palmetto made so much more sense. Yes, it hurts in FCCs when they call you out for breaking rules etc... but it’s LIFE...it happens. That was to help prepare you for the outside world... because we know life isn’t perfect and is what typically leads one to use anyways. It hurts our pride and self-esteem when we are called out, but we learn ways to cope with these things.... these reviews all seem so angry and full of resentment when we all know that resentments are the #1 offender and you can’t hold onto that. You will get the most out of your treatment if you are willing to accept what is offered to you. You have to learn not to get so hurt over the things that people say to you. Yes, they say stuff to make you feel like absolute crap, but it’s with good intention... let’s face it, WE WERE crappy people in our addiction. When I finally made the choice to get sober on my own, I used what I learned at Palmetto to do it. If it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be here today.
