I enjoyed my time at College Recovery, they have a very qualified and loving staff that really attended to all my needs. My life was a mess when i arrived here and as I'm leaving I have a job, I'm enrolled in college, and my family loves me again. I really appreciate all the love and support I've received, they made me feel like a part of a family and I couldn't have asked for a better year! Thank you for everything CR!
I've read the reviews and have to agree with all of them! Yes it is a "long-term" up to a year or more stay, but that time is necessary for each individual whom has been living in the throws of addiction & therefore dishonesty, negativity, etc. to find themselves, follow a strict set of rules and eventually thrive. Many of the "students" in my experience, display an unrelenting sense of entitlement. Something that comes with the money they have to afford a high-priced facility. This sense of entitlement does nothing for recovery and being at Alina Lodge brings people back to basics, away from family fortune & towards learning that everyone in addiction is equal. That's not to say that the "big wigs" running the joint won't bend if there is enough money behind a student - it is after-all a business too . The Counselors are skilled, caring, wonderful people but their hands are tied because the "higher-ups" make "shoot from the hip" decisions without regard to how it might affect the original "Treatment Plan". They undermine what the "front lines" do to better things for each student. This can be seen as dishonesty by the Counselor's, making their jobs more difficult and ultimately the reason why Alina Lodge loses excellent staff. On to the students.... but Addicts have lived most of their lives NOT being held responsible for their actions. From my time there I learned a lot about myself and other's. How to be patient, caring, honest, sensitive, and most importantly -- POSITIVE! The students at Alina Lodge spew negativity on a constant basis, almost to the point of it being just to have something to complain about! Setting an example of positivity made me a much better person. Alina Lodge and exposure to people (for many years) with good, strong, sobriety has taught me to always work on myself, look at my part in things, consider someone else's side, etc. As someone not in recovery (or needing recovery) this is a blessing and can make anyone a more thankful, happy person! The time a student spends in "quiet reflection" helps them in this process -- they are for the most part digging deep and really discovering themselves -- they have no choice! All of the things provided in extremely over-priced rehabs that distract a student from what they really need to do (like horse-back riding, excessive gym time, spa treatments, etc.) does nothing to help them! I have seen many habitual relapsing addicts get sober and stay sober without long-term treatment but the difference was that they lost everything, family, friends, homes, jobs, cars, kids, and suffered the long-lasting effects of that lifestyle. These were people whom now had a good foundation and solid "Network" in AA and above all -- no money -- which seems to be the root of many of Alina's students problems! It is necessary for family members to commit to educating themselves with addiction, their family members progress (not their own reported progress in endless letters home) with the "Clinical Team". Tough love is necessary and living with addiction is damaging emotionally to those of us that love an addict! You as the family member need to learn to "detach with love" so that your loved one can accept the reality of their life and so that YOU can be more educated and "sane" when they do finally recover! While I don't believe in many things that occur in the facility as far as the "higher-ups" go, I will say that this place is, by design, difficult and if a student can really truly work on themselves and mentally survive lots of negativity, they will be stronger and better able to handle what life outside of treatment will throw them! Once sober and home it should be a scary place for them, and you! Fear for them in continued recovery ensures that they recall what life was like before! Fear for you means that you are clear that rehab wasn't a magic bullet -- there is NO cure and throwing money, love, or micro-management at them doesn't work. None of those things got your loved one sober and it certainly won't keep them sober. Hope this review was helpful. It was honest and from the heart.
