The only reason I don't give five stars for treatment effectiveness and facilities is because we all have and will continue to have room for growth. Having said that, I can honestly say that it is my belief that Fellowship Hall saved my life. I had no idea what I was walking into when I arrived. But the intake specialist and counselor on duty (who actually ended up being my primary counselor) made me feel as calm and welcome as possible, considering my very high state of anxiety. The first few nights, when I sat up shaking and sobbing from withdrawal and fear, would have been unbearable if it wasn't for the nurses, who literally held and rubbed my hands and talked to and calmed me for what seemed like hours. It seems everyone who works here is in recovery which is inspiring!
I never once felt unsafe or disregarded. Their classes and small therapy groups combined with personal counseling helped me tremendously. These therapies are the star of the program! You will get out what you put in. No, it's not always "fair," and not EVERYONE will be nice to you all the time. But that's life. They will not enable you, and I personally needed that bit of tough love. Great discharge programs. Delicious hot food and wonderful salad bar! Clean facilities. The women's lodge is amazing. Come open minded and you will leave with a fully loaded tool box. Forever grateful to FH.
