Based in Savannah, Ga., Recovery Place offers a range of services for individuals struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders. The facility offers both residential and outpatient treatment, as well as medically supervised detoxification services. It's one of only 53 non-hospital treatment programs in Georgia (just 18.2 percent of all treatment facilities in the state) to provide medical detox.


Treatment begins with a 60- to 90-minute evaluation of the client’s physical, psychological, and emotional health. All treatment programs utilize a strengths-based approach and include medical management, experiential psychotherapy, spirituality, relapse prevention work, 12-step programming, and aftercare. In addition, a family group is held once a week.

The residential program typically lasts 28 days and consist of individual therapy, group counseling, educational sessions, and 12-step groups. Outpatient options include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which is a modality available in 16.1 percent of Georgia treatment facilities. There's also an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which is offered by 34.9 percent of treatment facilities in Georgia.


The treatment team includes licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and certified addictions counselors.


According to Recovery Place's website, residential clients stay in a downtown Savannah condominium that's close to treatment services and 12-step meetings.


Of the three former clients polled by Rehabs.com to date, two provided Recovery Place with negative feedback and one offered a mixed review. The two negative reviewers both indicated that they would not recommend the program to others, and asserted that the programming was not helpful. "It's nothing more than an AA meeting and it's expensive. I got sober on my own," one of the two reviewers wrote.

The mixed reviewer gave Recovery Place high ratings of four out of five stars for its family participation, its administrative and discharge procedures, and its staff's level of training and experience, but noted that "there was not enough one on one time." When asked, on a scale from one to five, if they would recommend the facility, the alum gave a rating of four.

Recovery Place received mixed reviews on secondary sites, earning just 1.6 out of five stars based on 10 Google reviews[1] but a 4.5 out of five-star rating based on the opinions of 14 individuals on Facebook[2], which the facility may manage. Unhappy clients described the facility as disorganized and the programming as unhelpful and inconsistent. "Facility is run down, no air conditioning, and you rarely receive the counseling your supposed to," Nicholas wrote in a review representative of positive feedback.

Satisfied former clients, on the other hand, praised Recovery Place for it's effective programs and compassion staff. "Great place," Larry wrote in a Facebook review representative of positive feedback. "Has always taken me in and loved me and helped me get my life back pin track."


To date, the two loved ones surveyed by Rehabs.com provided opposing reviews of Recovery Place. The first, an anonymous male between the ages of 40 and 59, gave the facility gave five out of five stars for its counseling options, its treatment of co-occurring disorders, and its staff's level of training and experience. "They were supportive and worked with family to continue support even after check out," he noted.

However Johnny, whose son attended the facility, reported high costs and poor billing practices. "Apparently the negotiated rate in which the recovery place has with the insurance companies is not enough so they go after the families," he noted.


Recovery Place indicates that it accepts most private insurance plans. It also takes Medicaid, which is accepted by a little less than half (49.7 percent) or treatment facilities in Washington.
