Patients can get loud and out of control while the RC\'s look the other way. Depending on arrival day, if it is on a Friday afternoon or on a Saturday or Sunday when the therapists have left, a patient can wonder aimlessly, alone, friendless and lost until Monday when business returns to normal. Patients should be partnered up with someone to show them around and help establish a routine. Food is excellent but meal times are very short and if you miss the scheduled time frame (which is 30 minutes) you will have nothing to eat except yogurt, or fresh fruit. No desserts are offered (except fruit) and definitely no sweets of any kind. Caffeine is cut off at 1pm. No soft drinks of any kind. These are just small things in comparison to what life has thrown at people in need of assistance with addiction, but for the rates they charge your insurance company, you\'d think the patients were kept a little more comfortable. It\'s the little things that can make or break a recovery plan. Let\'s face it, there is big bucks to be made in the recovery business and these treatment centers know it. Have a loved one help in deciding on what treatment facility would be right for you. Take into consideration the average age of the clientele for a suitable environment. Review the safety stats and don\'t be afraid to ask questions. They are not paying you to seek treatment. You and your insurance (if applicable) are paying them. Good luck.
