Strengths include a rigorous schedule and lots of groups throughout the day. It's really cool that most of the staff is also in recovery, and the counselors are truly interested in helping the patients achieve their treatment goals. Inconsistency between staff members (some people enforce rules more strongly than others, medication and meal times change very frequently, etc), pay phones are very expensive, women are only allowed to smoke in a very small area while men have a large area to use. Compared to other treatment facilities, Sunrise House is very serious about recovery. There are no spas or crazy amenities, but if you are serious about getting better this is the place to go. The staff run lots of groups, everyone gets an individual counselor whom you see once a week, and Monday through Friday you will meet in small groups with your primary counselor and peers. The food, honestly, is pretty good, and there are some snacks available throughout the day. The patients are always supportive of one another and are generally a pretty good group. I can't speak for being an alumnus, because I am still here, but I have heard good things from the people I know who have graduated the program.
