It has helped me more then any of the other 8 has done of course it starts with me... and me doing the work that is given me to work on.. And I gave it my all... and today I have 3 years clean date is 5 / 24 / 2012. It's a great treatment center. . And I loved how the owners are a big part of giving and teaching the tools to use to stay clean and sober...I truly can say I love them.
The Clearing is a wonderful place. The program itself is amazing. Hands down this program should benefit your life at some level. I came in there completely broken. I was a member of NA for twenty three years and it no longer worked for me. I was looking for something different. I had just gone through a torturous year battling breast cancer and physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually dead. On my way there I had so many traumas overlapping each other I could see straight. I needed help. In my opinion the clearing is not about addiction at all. Anyone with issues would benefit. The clearing really helped me get a grip of my life. I left in much better shape than when I arrived. I’m not cured by any means but I’m doing much better. It is worth the time and money and I’m very grateful. It’s like a spiritual boot camp. Personally I gave it 110 percent. I worked hard and did my best . They have a very thoughtful and caring staff. Every morning you wake up to yoga and tai chi. It’s awesome. Your days are filled with workshop, meditation, book clubs, personal work, and much more. They train you to rewire your brain. The focus is self love. This program Is real. As a mater of fact the entire staff works the same program. They put their heart and souls into the program. They care. They created an amazing place. They taught incredible skills. They do their very best to accommodate you. They even have a well thought out aftercare program to support you when you leave. In other words, they don’t just drop you. You are still working the program when you leave. They really do their best and they really care. My concern is that it worked wonders “ while in the atmosphere.” The problem for myself I needed more time to train myself. I almost wish it was a 6 month outpatient program so I had more time to process issues and get in the habit of personally integrating and utilizing the tools on my own. I needed more time to process my traumas. The program definitely helped me “crack the egg” but I was lagging behind and having a difficult time keeping up. I’m my opinion, If you have fatigue or physical limitations it could negatively affect your experience. It did mine. The rush to get my work done and get adequate sleep gave me more stress and therefore less processing. I would have benefitted more if it were a slower circicullum and more time. This is all my own experience. For the month I spent there. The staff members are all super. They are kind and loving. They do everything they can to make it as homey as possible. They are incredible people. All of them. Although there are some problems with the owners. They are both incredible people with their own issues. It was wonderful seeing them incorporate the teachings in their own life. Like I said it’s incredible work and the the tools make sense. I used to be in NA for 23 years. I was done with the 12 steps and I admit it no longer worked for me . They do not bash the 12 steps but they say it does not do anything to help your issues. In my opinion they are unfamiliar with the real workings of the 12 steps and base their opinions on a couple meetings and rehabs. I have 23 years of experience and know the true potential of spiritual growth with “writing” all 12 steps. Although it stopped working for me so I needed something different. The following paragraph is my own experience. The owners are kind people. They care. But you don't want to get on their bad sides or you will be walking on eggshells for a month. Its almost like you are part of a little family with two parents you don't want disappoint them . I felt like a little girl trying to please my Parents. Another problem is if you are upset ( crying) while there is no session you have to isolate yourself. There were a couple times I was crying and one of the owners told me not to talk about my feelings with any of the other members because it disturbed their process. That personally didn’t feel so great. One of the owners wanted me to sit in my room so I didn’t expose the other clients to any negativity ... I understand what they are trying to accomplish but I personally felt isolated and scolded . There was one incident that caused one of the owners screamed at us and took all our privileges away. We basically got grounded. Also if you have a temper you have to hold it in. There is a healing vibe on the property so if you are going through uncomfortable feelings you can potentially mess the other clients energy so you have to pull yourself together in order to be around other people. That part didn’t feel very good. ... also the program is awesome but when I left I had many tools and an excellent aftercare program but I found it difficult to utilize the tools without being in the company of my support group. Once I left there I have found it hard to stay with the program. That is my present situation. I fell off because I’m back at home and away from the environment. If you were to live there or work there you would be with a community with the same purpose of healing. It works. When I left it didn’t work as well for me. This is all my own personal experience. Overall, I highly recommend the clearing for help with substance abuse and dual diagnosis. They undercover the real trauma. They keep you moving and support you through the process. The staff is kind and loving. The environment is beautiful. The food is yummy. There were a couple set backs but that are always asking for help from the participants if they could do anything to make it better ? They are a work in progress and always wanting to change for the betterment of the program. I recommend the clearing.
It was an overall good facility, but staff was not supportive.
