Good counselors, strong program The program was very strong and aimed at my personal needs; however, I disagree with some of their requirements for graduation/completment of the program and with the high cost of the program.

Skilled and compassionate counselors, various break out groups customiced to you particular issues. Cost is high and no sort of payment plan to help. It is an extremely intentive program with a dedicated staff that genuinely cares about each individuals needs and progress.

They had a very good detox. I hardly got sick. They had great staff and Drs. The Drs and most of the staff are recovering addicts, so they understand. The rooms could have been better.. It is just an overall good rehab to go to. Everyone is nice and don't treat you like you're just a druggie.

Strengths include: Individual therapy, group therapy, various therapy techniques including EMDR certified therapists and equestrian therapy, daily exercise, experienced staff, individualized treatment plans, certified program for medical professionals, multiple levels of care, after care, and many more. However, hospital food is decent but not great, not a luxurious facility but it is effective as a treatment program. This treatment facility helped save my life! I highly recommend it! The staff is highly qualified and caring. The treatment program really focuses on helping individuals deal with emotional problems and past traumas that may be contributing factors to substance abuse. The individualized plans allow for each patient to receive the best treatment for him or her.

I was in a hospital for detox and continued to stay for treatment of liver disease. The doctors and nurses took exceptional care of me. However, it was expensive. If you have a medical problem stemming from substance abuse I would recommend being treated at a hospital with knowledgable staff and 24 hour supervision. I do not feel comfortable in "group" rehab and felt that being well educated by doctors of the serious medical consequences of my addiction is what allowed me to successfully break my dependency. I've been completely sober (not a single relapse) for 8 months. AA was not for me and I believe in fact-based therapy over using a "spiritual" crutch to solve my issues. God wasn't going to cure me. I had to do it myself.

UAB has an expert staff that offered individualized care. We really get to know our patients. Average treatment stay is 90 days. Very different treatment than other options in Alabama.
