Let me give you the real deal. Staff is AWESOME. The food/meals are INCREDIBLE. Outside of that, this place is a joke! It's like a jail. You are NOT allowed your own cigarettes, rather they give you a pack per day of THEIR cigarettes OR you can get 1 Juul pod per day. It's one or the other, and no, you cannot bring your own vape. You aren't even allowed to hold onto your own lighter. You need to borrow one from a staff member and immediately return it upon lighting your cigarette. The clients here??? OMG.... Sit and listen to gangsta rap, thug music in the main living areas as loud as the TV's can possibly go. Constantly talk about how many times they've been to jail/prison, how they can't wait to get out and use (most people here are court ordered to be here.) I understand they have some sort of agreement with drug courts in place. A lot of the people I was there with are active gang members and from what I was told by staff, this is very common. A lot of guys are extremely violent and ready to fight at a moments notice. Total thugs. You are allowed two phone calls while here. 1 "safety call" when you arrive to inform someone that you are there and then 1 "pick up" call when you are being discharged (paroled.) The rooms are OK. Beds not so comfortable but could be worse and all rooms are doubles, very small and no single rooms. You CANNOT keep your own toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant or any other toiletries. They give you a "care package" that consists of LITERALLY a "state jail" issued style toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. They over-medicate you as much as possible to keep you as long as possible in order to maximize profits. My personal recommendation... STAY FAR FAR AWAY. Do your research. There are so many FAR better places where you can keep your own stuff, including cell phones, laptops, toiletries, cigarettes, lighters, etc. The ONLY plus' for this place is the chefs and the vast majority of the staff. They are truly caring people and these "rules" are clearly from the top down. I wouldn't go here again if it was the last place on earth.
