Horrifying would be the best way to describe this place. They treat you like criminals even if you’ve never been arrested. The counseling is pathetic, food sucks, creepy environment. You feel like your in a 1940’s insane asylums in East Germany. It’s been a few years & I still get a bad feeling all over my body every time I think of this place. They use humiliation & threats of dismissal to try to encourage involvement and intimidation is common especially toward the most vulnerable. Being here for 4 weeks was definitely the lowest point of my life, not drugs & alcohol. Recovery Works & everything it represents was my bottom.

This place is a no go! This is not a mens only or women's only. This is a men's and womens facility. People having sex behind buildings, sneaking off and going to the liquor store right up the street and coming back and getting drunk, drugs brought in. Not an ideal place for someone you love. IOP is the worst. In 3 weeks time we got one visit that lasted an hour, no phone calls on the weekend and maybe 2 calls during the week. None of them were over 5 minutes each and you are on speaker phone and monitored. The counselors do not call you or inform you of anything. At all. This place is an absolute joke.

I went to this facility voluntarily. Upon arriving I was checked in by nurse who was very unhelpful and hateful. I only attended for 20 days due to my insurance declining to pay for services not rendered. It was not for lack of bringing it to the attention of staff on multiple occasions. This facility does staff a few good people so that�s a strength. In all honesty there are far too many to list. Most of the staff does not care.

I was recently at recovery works in etown and it was the worst recovery experience I've ever had. The RA's are not educated on recovery dynamics or the AA book. There were cars dropping off drugs to people in detox almost every night. Men going into women's rooms while they we're sleeping. Health code and fire code violations galore in the cafeteria and when they we're brought up to Warren the client was told to stop speaking about it and Warren was about 3 inches from that client's face at that time. Women are completely disrespected and called sluts by speakers who are brought in by staff and nothing is done as well as during music therapy letting clients sing songs about women being sluts and whores. There is more harm being done than good at this horrible place.

It's pretty bad with how much they charge your insurance that you are feed so poorly. You get mostly sandwiches. Also when you are at IOP and your at the IOP building They feed you really bad. I remember one time they fed us peanut butter/jelly sandwiches and Cole slaw, that's nasty! Also there is no way to exercise like the web site states. If you have problems and need someone to talk to they treat you like children. You do not get family visits uess they are with a Therapist and your phone calls are put on speaker phone and monitored so you cant tell someone to come get you.

Do not take anyone you care about here. The state should look into this facility. Tried for two days to get answers about some questionable things that went on while a family member was there. I was assured I would get a call back for two days and kept getting the run around. I have worked in a recovery center in the past and this is not a place you want to leave someone you care about

This is the worst treatment center I have ever been to.Recovery Works was very under staffed and unorganized. Female residents in building two were left alone at night with no RA on property. They were very few meetings and much less on the weekends. IOP was a joke cold lunches and very little food for the houses no vegetables at all. IOP meeting from 8 to 4 or when ever they choice to pick you up, was useless and very little meeting after noon there. Outside AA meeting were good but clients were not made to go into meetings. Church was the best part of the whole treatment program! Thank you,

I spent 26 days at recovery works. The majority of that time was spent at the hospital next door. I had a serious medical emergency but because I was a drug addict the nurses,staff and the doctor did not believe that I was ill. I ended up having two surgeries on my kidneys and my uretuer. It was extremely painful. I was discharged from the hospital back to recovery works a week and a half later they "graduated" me from the program . I went to a sober living house and relapsed the same day. For almost 7 more months I got back in my addiction. I am proud to say I have been clean for 2 years as of January 14 2018 thanks to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ and the methadone clinic I'm currently a patient of. They saved my life. Recovery works did not care if I was there or not or if I was getting clean or not they wanted the money from my insurance. Other patients were having drugs brought there by friends and breaking all kinds of "rules". All you think about is how to get out because your in the middle of nowhere and how you can get money so you can relapse. It's not the place to go if you are truly trying to change your life. There are a few staff that do care and want to help but the majority are just there for a pay check and enjoy telling people what to do and when to do it.

I have went to this recovery works several times. Not because they wasn’t a good place but because of my own selfishness I didn’t want to take into consideration what they said was needed of me to stay sober and change my like. This place gave me a foundation to start my life of recovery. Some stuff are nice but some staff are a little more harsh only because the sickness we suffer from is NO JOKE! It’s something that should be takin serious. Rehab is not a vacation! You need to sit down shut up and listen for once in your life cause you just might die. And they teach you this. That’s probably when anyone who gave it a negative review did so. Although I didn’t stay sober when I left it was not because of the place it was because of my self. I was not ready. But I am over a year sober today and this place is what gave me my foundation to build something amazing. If you are ready to get serious ! Come here if not I’ll pray for you good luck. They are always open with welcome arms and they tell you some real shit maybe one day you can look back like I have and say that place has had a huge impact on my life. P.s. ANY REHAB YOU GO TO WILL HAVE BOYS AND GIRLS THAT ARE SEEKING VALIDATION! It’s not just this place. Some are sicker then others. This is a wonderful facility!!! Thank you

Go anywhere else but here. Staff treats you like a piece of garbage. If you want to leave they make you feel horrible about it and then they don’t let you use the phone to call for a ride or let you get your belongings. The “music therapy” is listening to songs off the staffs phone. This place is a joke.

12 step based. Was told I'm a future heroin addict by counselors. I've had zero desire to use opiates. The man who runs the place was a victim of Fort Hood and wants to speak to women who have had tragedy occur to them but has zero empathy. Counselor claimed she wanted to open a halfway house but shared her story of being raped and said "It was my fault, I didn't have my phone." Very much a victim blamer.

I Took My Son There...It Was A Nice Place...So I Thought! Until i got a Call saying He Was Discharged Because he didn't participate in Group...I was very Upset! But this is what really Bothered Me...They Dropped him off at A Wal-Mart No Phone Not even a bottle of Water!! I had To Ride from Louisville To Pick my son up...Wal-Mart wouldn't let him sit in there until i arrived!! When i got there they said he's in the garden area!!! I was pissed! He was lying on Concrete ground! So with all that being said...I don't like how they released my child without him knowing anything about E-Town...My Son is African American So He looked apart just sitting at Wal-Mart...I Don't respect Recovery Works Or That Wal-Mart Near Them...They Treated my Son like A Criminal instead of an addict who just needed and wanted Help...But I Will Pray For E-Town!!

I left my girl there, they sat her out and would not let her make a phone call to let anyone know she was on the streets.. she has been tramatized :( nothing short of a nightmare for her.. I brought her books and a letter and they assured me she would get it, yea she never got it.. 50$ in books. 50$ on her books we have yet to receive back. Boys and girls sleep in the next room over from the women.. I have hwe here monitoring her and giving her the exact \"comfort\" meds they were giving her there. Flexural and sleep aid and zophren. She\'s so much more comfortable here at home soaking in hot baths with her loving family hete to support her.. please reconsider this place

If you are a heroin addict or alcoholic this may be the place for you to go if you don\'t mind no heat, horrible food, and filth. But if you are there for any other medication find some place else to go. I was on Fentanyl patches for 6 yrs for a surgery gone wrong. It took 7 yrs to find a surgeon to help me. Then I was ready to get off the patch I no longer needed. Once I admitted MYSELF with $12,000 cashier\'s check in hand I was told by nurses there was no protocol for Fentanyl. 100 times stronger than Heroin. I was not allowed to use a phone to try to get out even though I had admitted myself. I was told they needed me to stay because they were not keeping all the beds full and my money was needed to meet their quota. By day 7 I was as close to death as one person can be. A nurse had to go above both the Dr and Psychiatrist to their Director who immediately got me an IM injection and phenobarb in a large dose to help me. My blood pressure ran sky high and my head hurt so bad for 9 days I wanted nothing but to die. Finally on day 11 I got access to a phone. ( not because I was allowed) and reached a friend who arrived for me the next morning at 9am. I was admitted to the hospital the next day with a severe bacterial infection in my small intestines. My CT of the abdomen showed my small intestines were severely infected and inflamed. 17 days later I am still I\'ll and they have not been able to kill the bacteria. I was told I had to have contracted it there due the length of time I had been there. As for getting off the Fentanyl I finished that shaking and jerking all on my own. I have refused any pain medication in the hospital. BUT I beg of anyone besides Heroin or Alcohol please do Not go to Recovery Works in Elizabethtown, KY. GOD BLESS ALL THAT ARE THERE AND I PRAY DAILY FOR THE ADDICTS I got to know there and pray they make it this time. My heart broke for those young adults.

I checked myself in as I was coming off Rx\'s. I had gotten myself down to 2 medications that where also cut in half. I was treated as if I were Court Oreldered to be there!! The night nurse was Fantastic and that\'s the only thing good I can say about the place.... The sleeping arrangements for the men and women are in the same buildings. Everyone sits on the furniture watching TV wrapped around each other. Not comfortable at all. I left the 3rd day. After receiving my belongings in large plastic garbage bags, I was not aloud to use their phone to call a cab to get home. Nor call my husband. The entire Staff treated me like I was a piece of crud!!! Even the supposed Councelor & the director of the facility!!!! If you or a loved one needs a caring place to get clean and sober, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE! Please find another facility. Also, I was there for 3 days. They charged my insurance for 4 days. I had money on my account & I have yet to receive a check in the mail. This place is a horrible Joke. Worst experience in my life when I needed loving, caring help. I am home & detoxed myself the rest of the way with my loving, caring husband. I gave it one star because of the Night Nurse from up North & the cleaning lady who was super sweet. AGAIN, PLEASE CHOOSE A DIFFERENT FACILITY FOR YOURSELF OR SOMEONE YOU LOVE AND WANT TO GET BETTER!!

As far as rehabilitation centers this one was one of the nicest. The staff helped me more than I can express. They teach from experience and know what they\'re talking about. It\'s up to the clients to listen and learn from what they\'ve got to say. The only bad thing I can say is they need more individual therapy. Other than that I loved my experience there.

Don\'t expect to get a hold of the staff when calling to check on your family....they will call you when they need laundry detergent.....but other than that they just like hearing the phone ring....all that money and the only time you hear from them is when your family needs something....

My son stayed there twice and relapsed, yet again. There isn't any after care follow up. The therapist only met for "Family Therapy" once, instead of once a week. The therapist that we did see had made negative comments to my son, implying that I was the one with the issues that caused his alcoholism. This was validated during our one session. There is absolutely no consistency with the rules and policies. They vary depending on what staff member you ask. No dual diagnosis was available and we all know that in most cases there is a dual diagnosis, so this program is putting a band aid on the problem. Personally, I feel that it's a "let's get em in and out" program, for the money. I think the basics are there, but there has to be many changes in order for this to be effective and to save the lives of so many that desperately need it.

The wonderful staff at RW Elizabethtown saved my life. They pulled me out of a pit of despair of my own making,and changed my life in a million wonderful ways. The level of concern and care that they provided me was incredible! I have all the tools to lead a very spiritual,clean and sober life until the day I die because of these wonderful people!
