Communication is the key. doesn't do that with the family. I was promised 6 times within a week a call. Never a return call. Very very disappointed with the treatment. Another recovery just for the money.

I am a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor having been employed at Tara Treatment Center as well as other treatment programs. I believe Tara provides a premier program for Substance Dependence. The curriculum is designed for addiction education and long-term recovery lifestyle applications. 12 Step principles and fellowship are included in the program and intended to be implemented while residing at Tara. Many of the staff are in recovery, having attended treatment at Tara and exemplify their "ownership" of what the program is today. Clients enter a family atmosphere and spiritual setting upon entering the program and can enjoy a life-changing Tara Experience when they are ready and able to engage in the recovery process. I have and will continue to refer loved ones to Tara Treatment Center. Keep up the great work!

They must maintain full control on your detox. Know this before you go. Their policies are different then some places. But I will say, take everything with you for first appointment...

Strengths were 12 steps; many counselors are in recovery. However, not strong in psychiatry for other illnesses. Very good family program.

I voluntarily checked myself into Tara at the age of 44 years old. I had been an alcoholic and addict since the age of 18. It was my first attempt at sobriety. They gave me hope when I had none, taught me when I was unreachable and loved me until I could love myself. I truly believe that I wouldn't be alive today without Tara Treatment Center. The experience and dedication of the staff was excellent, in addition to the recovery model.

I enjoyed the counselors who worked there, the family therapy sessions and the meeting we went to. I didn't like the fact we could barley talk to our families while there and that visits were so short. The fact most of the staff has had a family member or they themselves have gone through some sort of treatment was a positive aspect. However, they don't let you connect with the outside world much.

By far the worst... We agreed upon Tara as they promised help for not just the addict, but our family. However, no such help was found.They acted as if it the patient was a prisoner and not a patient. Furthermore, the program only repeats itself. So, once you have been in for a week, you will do the same thing again and again. But, they insist upon a minimum of four weeks. My spouse was given all access to medical and psychological progress, but it was refused when requested. My spouse called the person in charge numerous times to beg for help but the calls went unreturned. Clearly, the money and not the help is the only concern of the majority of the staff. Our family had one good psychiatrist at Tara, everyone else was after our medical insurance. Sad, as it was a trying time for our entire family. The horses they claim to have is actually one horse with two ponies and you are not allowed to ride them. Week 4 you are allowed to be lead on the one horse that is at the facility. Whatever you do, do not send your loved one here.

I wish this facility allowed patients to detox at the facility. That is the most difficult part for the family, and it was hard to get through without professional help.
