RICCA was basically the last option for me & I was well aware of that fact. I had been through 21 day inpatient & outpatient treatment quite a few times. RICCA offered a longer term solution to my drinking, and that's exactly what I needed. I learned how to be self sufficient while being sober. Nobody is going to "give" you anything here. You have to be willing to work hard and better yourself. This facility is a no nonsense approach to recovery. YOU have to want recovery & actively participate in your rehabilitation. It's a no-frills facility. The counselors are there for you if you use them. You might not like what they have to say, but they tell you the extreme truth about yourself & your disease. You are required to get a job, pay rent (which includes treatment program) and participate in everyday chores. You have to be willing to go to any length... Transportation is difficult.
