I spend a lot of time looking at rehab centers and I chose St Joes because of what they told me on the phone and saw on the website. I had special business needs and was assured if I towed the line I would be given access to things that one would not ordinarily get in rehab. I didn't want to be treated special. I run a business and intake told me they catered to business people, lawyers doctors etc.
All of it was a lie. Hell the water didn't work in 3 out of the 6 buildings on site. When I approached the director about my concerns she told me "Do you think your special?" No, I wanted what I was promised and what I was paying for. I was not court ordered so they had no leverage over me. Don't believe they don't take Medicaid, that is a lie.
I was sold on the fact that is was a rehab center tailoring to the needs of business professionals primarily dealing with alcohol issues. Nothing was further from the truth. Of the 45 people there 8 were over 30. The rest were court ordered heroin addicts simply trying to hook up with each other.
The grounds are spectacular, the staff is kind but very short handed, they complain about it constantly. The admin staff is evil. They spend their time wrangling in the 22 year olds, there is no recovery care of any substance. I could go on and on. Send a love one there or go there yourself at your own peril. I left after 8 days. Found the help I needed from a far more reputable place
