Rehabs 360 Guide


In operation for over 50 years, the nonprofit Cenikor Foundation provides prevention and treatment services for individuals struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders. The facility in Fort Worth, Texas, one of over a dozen centers operated by Cenikor, exclusively treats adults through long-term inpatient and outpatient care. Additional services, including detox, short-term inpatient care, sober living, and treatment for adolescents, are accessible through the other Texas-based Cenikor locations.


According to the Cenikor Foundation’s website, the long-term inpatient program is intended for individuals who are mentally and physically capable of participating in the program, which, in addition to treating substance abuse, includes components that address education and workforce development.

The center’s treatment model, which includes both peer influence and individual counseling, aims to help participants improve social skills, develop healthy relationships, establish financial stability, and secure steady housing. To be eligible for graduation, clients must have an aftercare plan in place, as well as financial savings.

Outpatient care is tailored to each client’s needs, but most treatment plans include individual, group, and family counseling. All programming is goal-focused and may address topics including anger management, conflict resolution, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression.


According to the facility’s website, treatment is administered by licensed clinical and medical staff.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings; however, the eight alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date provided mostly below-average ratings for the facility’s accommodations and amenities.


The seven alumni reviews submitted to Rehabs.com were mixed. K.B. was the only alum to give the center’s treatment effectiveness five out of five stars, describing the center as a “good place to start over.” J.D. appreciated that the center connected them with housing and noted that they would recommend the facility.

However, the other reviewers were more critical of the facility and its staff. “The staff for the most part are caring and helpful, until you try to contact your family…Pretending the ‘phones don't work’ when they are clearly receiving calls right in front of you,” alum Dre wrote.

Additionally, two other alumni complained about inadequate time allotted for rest and recovery. “This place was awful. Worked too many hours. No recovery involved,” one anonymous alum wrote. “Makes clients work too long of hours and not enough counseling sessions. It removed me from a bad situation but no chances of rest even on weekend,” another alum added..

External reviews were generally positive. On Google reviews, 11 individuals gave the facility an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars[1]. “Amazing program it changed my life!" Tommy, a representative reviewer, wrote. Loved ones particularly praised the facility on the secondary review site.


B.S.H., one of the two loved ones polled by Rehabs.com, provided an enthusiastically positive review of the care their daughter received, giving the program’s treatment effectiveness five stars. “The first 15 months she hated everyone, then a glimmer of hope, for she realized she felt good, looked good and acted good.” they wrote.

However, the all loved one gave low one- and two-star ratings for most evaluated metrics, including the level of family participation and the amount of staff support. Opinions sourced from Google reviews disagreed. "My daughter is so much better and happier thanks to cenikor to help her the center of the core of her problem," one parent wrote on Google reviews.


The sole staff member polled by Rehabs.com to date praised the facility, offering perfect five-star ratings for the experience of both mental health and addiction staff. They also gave a five-star rating for the facility's overall quality of care.


According to its website, Cenikor charges fees based on a sliding scale, and payment plans are available. The center accepts Medicaid and most major insurance plans, including those from Aetna, Cigna, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.
