Founded by a marketing professional and charging up to $100,000 for 60 day inpatient plus 90 day outpatient care, this facility relies heavily on medicating addicts seeking help. After detox, patients are put on anti-depressants and anti-craving drugs: Serequel, Suboxone, Campral, and Anabuse. If a patient does not go to the nurses station to pick up their sleep meds on time, they’re charged an extra $75.
Enterhealth provides individual counseling, group meetings, and can patients can purchase a’la cart tests and “add-on” therapies. After patients are released, they offer an expensive (over $1,000) injection of a “blocking” drug like Vivitrol, which needs to be administered on a repeated basis.
Although Enterheath is charging an inordinate amount of money for recovery, they seem to be understaffed and therefore rely on patient assistance with many incidents including physical altercations, drug-induced episodes, and addicts trying to leave. There is a fitness center, a salon spa and a pool. Sleeping arrangements are private, but it’s not uncommon for patients to hook-up with each other.
Even though patients pay through the nose, they’re expected to “give back” once they leave by returning to the facility to give lectures and invest themselves in a myriad of ways.
They have over 30 beds available at a time... and from what I’m told, they lose about 1 former patient per month to overdose or suicide.
Enterhealth does not recommend AA or NA to addicts seeking help. AA and NA are free and available to anyone at multiple times and locations throughout every city every day... which would directly compete with Enterhealth’s costly program
Personal note: Of the successful recovering addicts/alcoholics I know... some went to rehab, some didn’t... but they all did the 12 steps. For those looking for treatment... keep looking. There are some great facilities out there. This place is a cult-like money grab.
