I entered Brook in Abington with trepidation & a guarded approach for over-use of alcohol. I was an anomaly in a few ways from most of the attendees - most notably that I would drive to the center & didn\'t entirely subscribe to the steps; whereas most of the others were in the more intense in-house programs & pursuing steps (good for them if that works). I learned a tremendous from/about them, & in turn, myself. Administrators were very helpful on many levels, & treated me with dignity as did many of the clinicians. While I wish the God-centric philosophy was less applied, the staff was mostly willing to understand my different strategy: MAT & CBT. End of the day take away - when I said farewell to both the staff & attendees it was met with compassion. They\'re doing good things here & I recommend an on-the-fence person to give it a chance given my experience.
