Group time was good, liked most of the people (leaders or teachers) I talked to during group. Very little communication. We had a few meetings per day otherwise we sat in our rooms and did nothing but dwell on our problems. Felt like the staff didn't really care. I feel this facility has the option to be more successful but they seem to just want to up the drugs on their patients and let them sleep/hang out alone in their rooms all day. I didn't feel I had anyone that I could open up to plus my communication with family was very limited. It was not really helpful in my recovery.
Focused on self accountability for success or failure and they provide you with all the tools to do either, if you fail, you did not use all the tools available to you. The only weakness I saw was not really a flaw, but a preference. When you are withdrawing from drugs, I feel caffeine is a vice, but not an addiction and they would not allow caffeinated products in facility. They took in my son, who has now been clean and sober for 120 days! The first time in over 20 years he has stayed clean and on the right path. They teach them skills to cope, they are blunt with the patients and make them look at who is responsible for their addiction and who is the one that can end it. (only themselves) They were strict and structured and helped him in every way they could. He has never succeeded before ad has tried, this place works! I have referred others there and will continue to do so. I wasn't there 24/7, but whatever they are doing...it works!
