Very few of the staff are nice, the girls get treated badly by staff woman especially the ladies who works nights, and they let you get bullied by the woman who are there and on doc,or coming from jail they let the bullying go on and on and they don't care.

How can I write my own review for PCE? Pioneer center East is an amazing place. PCE is probably the best treatment center ever. Atleast it's the best I've ever been to. The staff care alot about you , the counselors care , groups and classes are amazing and very helpful. I plan to work and apply to work at PCe . I just need 13 months clean time and I'm working towards that . I am very excited to work there and help the guys and girls that are there and in the situation I was in. I am so greatful for PCE being there for all there help . I can't wait to become part of the PCE family. Love you PCE.

I went here in summer/fall 2011 and yes one can focus on the crappy food or the sub par accommodations or say the staff wasn’t “polite” to them or whatever else of a reason for them not to be there but I can say I didn’t like it all either but I went there and picked up what I could sure I didn’t get it immediately after I left there but I’ll say this much, I left there there in fall 2011 and fell I learned some more skills to help me with the mindset of having to really quit drinking because I honestly think if I didn’t pick up the simple What do I want What am I doing to get it Is it working Do I need a new plan This concept has changed my life, I likely wouldn’t had been able to quit drinking w/o these tools I learned there and haven’t had alcohol since 2013. Thank you PCN east

Inpatient treatment facilities vary in many ways. Counselors and staff turn over. But a facilities approach towards treatment and conduct generally remain the same. I did 60 days with PCE in fall/winter 2009 and another 60 in spring/summer 2010. I found it to be lacking the fluff that I experienced at other facilities. I have also found that a large number of PCE grads who had been through multiple treatments, including myself, attribute a large portion of our continued sobriety to the realities we encountered and accepted while we were at PCE. For myself this included my attitude towards treatment, recovery, and ultimately owning my part. It was one morning about five weeks into my second round when I flipped the switch. So I got it, from PCE and straight to Oxford House! To describe the 8 yrs. to now would just sound like lip service and I really don't like "bad meetings". PCE, thanks for keeping it real! Thank you all, I do remember you, and many more! Peace

I think pce. staff needs to be taught some respect to their clients. they cuss at you like sailors and a couple staff members have nothing good to say about women. I came out of their more angry than when I arrived. I had to discharge early so I could keep my sanity. thank god I was not court ordered. I highly recommend If you are really serious about sobriety to do a little home work.

By court order, I was sent to Pioneer Center East Treatment Center. For a period, to be no more then 60 days.The only benefit was the 60 days of clean time. Which I personally took as a blessing. Regarding the treatment,accommodations,and meals, I,m sorry to say,need improvement.For the younger generation, I would not recomend Pioneer Center East for treatment.

Well you do have to be a repeat offender to be accepted to the program. I my self had to get a court order and a signature from a judge to put my self here. I also had to agree if I were to leave before my 60 day plan then they would put me in jail. Like I said u have to really want it. Also you can stay longer then 60 days if you feel u still need more treatment. They are there to help you if you really the help; however, some of the night staff were questionable.

My daughter was sent here on a court ordered treatment plan. ... They have no idea how to handle mental health issues that arise during treatment and wanted to have her sent to [a hospital] for the mentally ill.

After being convicted of a DUI I was sentenced to jail time, the judge agreed to suspend much of my sentence if I were to complete an inpatient treatment program. I hastily enrolled in Pioneer Center East which turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life. I suffer from a severe anxiety disorder which needless to say complicates any addiction, with that being said it took me several days to adapt to the environment and make all classes, this is where the trouble began. I should have chosen a dual diagnosis facility because Pioneer instantly classified my transitional period as "relapse behavior" and had me attend what they call "Relapse Behavior Group" (RBG). After about day 4 I started to adapt until a staff member found my iPod, it's ok to have iPods at this facility but mine had a screen which is a big no-no. With my iPod confiscated my stay was terminated and I was sent back to jail. They dropped me off at the greyhound station with no money, and no iPod. Yes, they stole my 200 dollar iPod and I never got it back. To complicate matters the fact that my bus did not leave until the following day (no food either) violated the furlough I was given to attend treatment in the first place. I was then charged with Escape 2 and subsequently found guilty because the report which Pioneer issued to the court stated that I demonstrated "insubordination." So not only did treatment earn me an Escape conviction but ended up turning a 3 week jail sentence in 364 days. I literally gained nothing from this facility and relapsed multiple times thereafter. I eventually voluntarily checked into a dual diagnosis facility and have been clean for nearly 18 months now. I strongly discourage anyone from attending Pioneer. I have maintained friendships with others who attended the same time which I did and they have all relapsed as well. You're better off admitting yourself to an animal shelter.
