Almost two years sober. Very grateful. Walker gave me the tools for recovery. Don’t go if not committed to the process. Not perfect. But I’m not either. I recommend the place without reservation. Meetings alone or outpatient care likely would not have been successful for me.

This place is a joke! Had a girlfriend and in desperation to fix her alcohol problem took her to Walker Center of Gooding. If you are gonna charge someone 18,000 dollars and think that you can fix a alcoholic by just taking alcohol away for 28 days and give them some activities and classes. Would have been better off her getting her 4th DUI. First off the detox almost killed her because of people not knowing what there doing. As in reading there heart rate as there blood pressure and vice versa. Then the activities and some classes are ran as co sex meaning the Male addicts are joined in with the female addicts. There is plenty wrong with that alone. With today's society girls/boys alot of them are dependent on attention and emotions. You got coed swimming together, exercising together, having water fights, ect. People need to be focusing on recovery not on play time with joint genders. So now you got coed addicts playing in the water going on hikes together and then when they get caught sneaking off to have sex they get kicked out. That is a problem. Because this facility put them in those situations. There is multiple types of addictions it's more than just alcohol, or drugs. These people need the right placements without distractions. Then to top off the amazing job these people did with my girlfriend is they told her she should break off her relationship.. excuse me. I took her there so she could get better so I can make her a wife. I wanted the help for her. Who are you to tell her she needs to end her relationship with a guy that only wants the best for her? Like I said this place is the biggest joke ever! She went in drunk and the first day out of completing there rehab.... still drinking. If I was the one that paid for it I would take this place down cuz that is a ton of money to waist on nothing. Like they're motto. It's a addiction center ran by addicts. It's a joke.

    I had the displeasure of being at the Walker Center and it's $$$$ the greediest outfit ever. I'm 54 and understand it's a business but wow, detox at home. It is possible !! Good luck. STAY AWAY. They don't care about addict's.

    It's too soon to rate the treatment effectiveness for our young adult son, but we are grateful for this program and very happy with what we've seen so far. The counselors we met were caring and professional. The 3-day family session was very beneficial and we almost missed it. Our son's counselor who called to tell my husband about family week, did not give any detailed information or express how valuable or important it would be. Had it not been for our daughter strongly urging both of us to go, my husband would've missed it--and that would've been unfortunate. Even though I felt that our son's counselor could've been more assertive in his communication with us, our son liked his "laid back" approach as a counselor. The meals are Standard American Diet, but thankfully, they include a well-stocked salad bar. This program is based on the 12-steps, but only step 1 is required to complete the program. The required AA meetings may not be the best fit for everyone, but the overall program seems like it would be beneficial for anyone.
