The Golden Rule believes that recovery is only possible when individuals learn how to accept and embrace their true selves. Founded in 1996, the residential rehab helps women do just that by offering substance abuse treatment in a safe and structured setting. Through counseling, addiction education, 12-Step meetings and life skills practice, clients are able to uncover the underlying issues contributing to substance abuse. Women learn how to be accountable, productive and happy without using alcohol or drugs.

Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

    I thank my mother everyday for finding this place for me!!! This place completely turned me around from my selfish, entitled thinking to doing morning chores, exercise, and kitchen detail...which I was not doing before I got here. I lived off my family! I became grateful for the big & small things through this program AND I made some wonderful, lasting friendships. I promise you The Golden Rule will help you with that...by simply teaching you simple day by day living!!!!

    BEWARE This place is a scam. We paid money for a relative to go who in addition to addiction has BPD. We chose The Golden Rule because they advertised having psychiatrists and trained staff on hand. However they do not! They kicked her out for BPD symptoms, which a trained professional should know how to deal with and treat. Not only that, but people coming off drugs are known to have issues, that's the whole point of what they're being paid for. They refused to refund money specifically because this is their business model.

    HORRIBLE!! Please, please do not send a loved one here unless you want them to spend most of their time cleaning a school and a church which they can’t attend. Also the food here is awful, considering they only serve starches and fried foods along with food purchased from a food pantry that is out of date. Your loved one will have a “small meal” of ramen noodles and a pb&j/meat sandwich every night along with a little Debbie cake for “snack”. All the girls live in constant fear of upsetting. The smallest thing such as signing a thank you card can result in losIng your phone call for the week. The attitude here is to please them, not to focus on recovery. There is little room for self growth. It is all about surviving and keeping sane until you can graduate. PLEASE DO NOT SEND A LOVED ONE HERE
