I can't speak for the males residence, however the women's residence is ran terribly. There are two female managers that were recently hired and my daughter was told to leave over false accusations. Both female managers are terrible example for the women attending the program attempting to get well. I regret sending my daughter there 100%, new managers are seriously required. This program did more harm than good to my daughters life and sobriety.

The Brook Retreat is the best long term, mens only facility in the world. Recommended stay is 6-9months, but they fly by while making lots of new friends. No narcotics of any kind are allowed during your stay and drug and alcohol testing is regular and mandatory. Most non-narcotic medications are allowed but ultimately they want to help you wean yourself off of certain medications. They use the AA method and a patient would be learning from the best teachers of what the Big Book of AA has to offer. They keep you busy but not overworked in any capacity and are open, honest, and helpful too all clients. The management all truly care about their residents and want everyone to get better. A beautiful house and grounds with lots of privacy just down the street form a shopping mall and restaurants for easy jobs when the time comes. Overall, I had one of the best experiences of my life in the 6 months I lived there.

I went to a program structured exactly like this. I have volunteered to speak and help at this program on several occasions. When a guest and although difficult and I did not understand the requirements and intensity of the program it all made sense in the end. I will be 5 years sober in a couple months due to this exact program. Guest may not know it but if they get the opportunity to attend this program they have truly hit the lottery in regards to an effective method in not only staying sober but turning their whole life around and opening up future possibilities that they have only dreamed of. The only catch is the Guest has to want to put 110% into this or it does not work. I know these men personally and they truley do care about every guest at this facility. Its not work its their life.

But that these people truly cared about my loved one but in fact ended up putting his life in jeopardy with their irresponsible decisions no excuses. If they truly cared about the addict as they say they do they would have made a more reasonable decision that didn\'t jeopardize someone\'s recovery.

The first treatment center to make the 12 steps a walk through priority. Wonderful group of men working together in a peer support environment to help each other. I can\'t say enough about their commitment to each others recovery.

Thorough, no-nonsense 12 step program. Send your loved one here if they are ready to change their life. The healing power of this program is based on a real twelve step experience delivered by those who are passionate about the process. The facility is clean and highly structured. Highly recommend this group.

This program not only saved my sons life, it made him into a better man then I ever imagined possible. My son is sober, reintegrated with our family, finished college, works full time and helps others to recover from addiction. Three staff members in particular are caring, supportive, educated in addiction recovery. This safe, well run program works!!! An investment well made for my sons life!!!

Really quite a poorly run institution by under experienced and uneducated young men who stand on intimidation and ego as a means of controlling behavior. Do not send you son here. Frankly, the expense is exorbitant, and lastly, completely against the traditions of AA - of which they claim to be/endorse.

Official Facility Response
We are very sorry that you had such a bad experience at our facility. Our program works because we set rules and expectations in place to help keep our guests on the right track. Some may perceive holding guests accountable as intimidation tactics, but I can promise that behind this perceived intimidation is love and an honest desire to help. Many of our alumni have stated that this structure and high level of expectation is exactly what they needed to recover. In other words, it works for many, not for all. Staff members are college educated but their recovery experience is their own. No staff member of the Brook Retreat has not done and experienced what each guest at the Brook Retreat is asked to do and the expectations they experience. We feel this is a contrast to a majority of treatment. Regarding cost, we feel that as a program that takes guests directly from the early stages of recovery to completely leaving treatment, an all in cost of $12,000 dollars for six months of quality treatment with a good track record is quite reasonable given the market rate of the industry. It is our opinion that we are less costly given the staff and offered structure. Again, I am sorry you feel this way and hope that whatever your situation is you have found an alternative solution that fits your needs and desires. We do what we do because we have seen it work for many including ourselves; and we will continue to do what we have experienced and can assure has worked for us.
