All of the staff at Waddington Rehab Center (WRC) shares the core belief that addiction is a treatable disease, not choices and recovery is a process that heals mind, body, and spirit. The more a person abuses, the more difficult it becomes to live without those substances, and he or she falls into a cycle that can ruin every aspect of life. Addressing this core, underlying issue is a process that allows the roots of the problems. WRC provides treatment through medical, psychological, spiritual and holistic means in order to treat the whole person. At our rehab center, we depart from institutional principle and have created a "therapeutic community" made up of loving and caring home where our clients disconnect from their addictions and reconnect to a higher presence. Our entire structure - from our beautiful facility to our delicious food and our loving staffs support a caring environment where participants are safe to share with other clients and staff members.

Facility Highlights

  • 12 step based for both AA and NA

Specialization

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
  • 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.

Worst place ever!!! The whole time there, people were getting high, having sex with each other and getting pregnant!! Staff members have sex with the client’s and even sexually harassed female client’s. They try to make you sign a nine disclosure so you can’t tell what’s going on. This place should be shut down. Their director can’t even spell! No type of structure what so ever. Do not send or let your loved ones go here!! They’ll be worse than when they came.

    This is one of the worst rehabs in the United States of America. There is no structure there is no consequences. The groups are pointless. They don't even provide Narcotics Anonymous literature. And barely have enough Alcoholics Anonymous literature for every client to have.

      They do not effectively communicate I'm told to drop off supplies for an impatient who is a friend of mine and then when I get there they know nothing about it and cannot accept the items and I'm dropping off clothing an alarm clock Etc there needs to be more communication and not waste friends and family's time making a trip over there I cannot just drop things off anytime in the evening because that's when I work and I was under the impression and understanding that they knew that I would be there this Friday from 9 till noon and the client actually called from the counselor's office so I don't know what happened but this is not acceptable
