My husband went through The Arbor after years of alcohol and prescription pain pills. It was the best thing that happened to this family. He has been sober 4 years now and our family is back together and healthy. Obviously the facility is beautiful, but it’s the staff that make it so special. The doctor really does a great job at explaining my role in my husbands recovery. The Arbor is the best of the best in the country.

The Arbor is such a special place. I can truly say the Arbor has restored my family. It is a beautiful property, but more importantly the program is so effective. The staff is so caring and knowledgeable. They go above and beyond because they believe in what they do. Most of them have battled addiction themselves. Their family and aftercare programs are essential to long term recovery.

I was 65 when I entered the Arbor in 2013. They were not prepared to treat an older client with the younger ones, which they have probably corrected by now. At any rate, I have had psychiatric treatment ever since, ptsd. The Arbor is just wrong. Ninety days, no books, no music, no tv, no newspapers , contact with loved ones once a week for 10 minutes with a guard by your side, "guards" almost numbering the amount of clients, no freedom of movement at all, total silence required in vans while group-traveling. SO much more repressiveness. My psychiatrist asked whether it was prison instead of a rehab. It seems oriented to punish rather than to inspire or help. One leaves feeling worse about oneself. In 12 weeks I had personal, strictly enforced one-hour contact with my counselor maybe 7 times?? I spent 50 thousand dollars of my own money--they did not accept my insurance--for nothing. I know that of the 12 or so who were there initially with me, at least 8 relapsed immediately, even in the sober living house, where they were even bringing in alcohol . I don't understand the high success rate the institution brags about. I went to another rehab institution in Washington 2 years later, spent 25 thousand more--and came out whole, healthy. They allowed us our personal freedom, integrity, books to read at down times, cell phones, tv in each room, etc. In other words, I was a human being being treated by other human beings. I wish this could be a more positive review, but there is nothing there to be positive about. The few people who tried to make our experience more positive were removed. Whoever wrote the review stating that the Arbor has individual programs for individuals obviously never was a client there. I invite anyone who wants to contact me from the Arbor to discuss the wrongness of their approach to do so. You have my daughter's number, and she can put you in touch with me up here in North Pole, Alaska. But in keeping with the Arbor's "personality", I don't think this review will be published. It will be interesting to see--but they are, first and foremost, a money-making venture.

I was blessed to be a client of the Arbor in 2014 after years of battling drug abuse. It was the best decision of my life. The staff comes from a place of love and the facility is beautiful.

My 19 year old son went to the Arbor, and I felt his treatment and the family program were better than any I'd found in the area. But be aware, when sending a loved one, especially a young adult, with dual diagnosis, I was told he would receive EMDR therapy while inpatient. He did not. I was then told he would have the same therapist throughout the continuum of care, He did not. When I was told not to contact my son, I agreed, with the caveat they would be checking on him every 30 minutes. They did not. He is, thank God, still sober today, but he walked away from extended care, while supposedly under watch, and they did not know or inform me until 12 1/2 hours after he left. My son has epilepsy and a heart condition. I trusted. I should never have stopped talking to my son. I am very grateful for the inpatient care he received, but the extended care was not worth the $5,000 a month I paid for it. While in iop, the patients do not have enough to occupy them each day, and I could have had someone with him every minute, those months, and had him in an iop, for the same money. I highly recommend the inpatient, but strongly recommend against looking to extended care or their continuum after, simply because they did not deliver what they told me they would.

I was fortunate enough to seek treatment at The Arbor in early 2016. The accommodations were very comfortable, far better than I expected for drug rehab. I loved being on a ranch and all the amenities made the hard work easier for me. I loved the staff and was able to move on to extended care and sober living within their org as they offer it all. I think that really helped me. I had tried outpatient treatment elsewhere a year earlier and have failed. I'm now nearly a year sober. Thank God!

I feel blessed to have attended treatment at The Arbor. It was a vigorous program that allowed me the jump start I need into the 12 steps. I also was able to work through the wreckage of my past using various therapeutic modalities.

The Arbor is a beautiful facility and seems -on the phone and on their website - to be the best place for your loved one. Once you arrive and your loved one is in their care, it is a different story. They never told us that there was no smoking allowed or that she would not be able to have a Coke to drink. They knew she was using a walker because she walked in with one, but decided after the fact that their grounds were "not suited" for someone with a walker. They failed to mention that there was an additional $500 deposit on top of the $30,000 fee. No one never knew what the other was doing. I would call to check on her and one person would tell me "oh, she's been doing great" and the same day the next person would say that she was not participating in group. ...Like I mentioned previously, they decided that she was too great a "risk", so they wanted to discharge her yet took forever (over 5 days) to do it. It just seemed at that point that they wanted her money. I do not recommend this place at all to anyone. It's basically a 12 Step program in a nice location. Your loved one would be better off elsewhere.
