As far as I hear this facility is decent and has worked for several people, but if the problem is more than just a simple addiction issue, and the person has more mental illness(es), then this place may not be able to help as in depth as you may see necessary.

The worst treatment facility ever . Meals are horrible the treatment is not nearly as good as people they it is. Due to it being a government funded Organization except for the ones who work and pay is a big reason why you don\'t get close to the treatment that is needed for a serious illness mental health illness or addiction problems that ones are needed for to get the help they need the staff treat you badly and make you feel very uncomfortable as if you were in jail here\'s a word for thought if you\'re planning on detoxing go home or go to a friends house stay in an ice cold basement with one sandwich a day and you will be living in heaven compared to this place

They do a good job of getting you back on your feet. They help you get cleaned up, find a place to stay, and give you skills to help find a job. The help people who could not ordinarily afford treatment. There are no weaknesses that I could see.

I sent my child here for alcohol and drug addiction 4 years ago and he had one set back 6 month after he came out but he had the tools needed to get it together and he's been clean ever since. There was a personal connection to each patient, which was wonderful.
