It was in 2009 I completed the program at Palmetto. By the grace of God I stayed despite the horrible treatment by administration, physicians, and clinical staff. One example is when my cabin was called to the center of the pavilion. I am hard of hearing and the size of the room made it even harder. When I would ask one of the counselors to repeat what they said to me, they lead the entire room in laughing at me. I should have been shown respect for my disability. This had nothing to do with my addiction.There was absolutely no good that came from the humiliation. The clinical and medical staff are stupid. One of my discharge plan was to return to Palmetto, sit in our counselors small group, and see t the other physician, see how much he impressed me, can not remember his name. He was extremely rude to me and wanted to know why was he seeing me. By that time I was finished with treatment and said to him,why don,t you read my discharge plan. Trust me, I would prefer not to see your face. Forty dollars a week times six in a cabin equals $ 240.00. This was to pay for everything, including toilet paper, etc. It is almost impossible to make it on this budget. We never had fruits or vegetables. The brown water was disgusting. How could you cook,drink or bathe in it without feeling dirty or enjoy your coffee or cooked food. I am still sober not thanks to Palmetto, but thanks to the Lord who gave me the strength to make through the Palmetto HelI.I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TREATMENT CENTER AT ALL! There is much more I could say , but I know anyone reading this gets it.
