Need signs and parking!!
I’ve attended the partial hospitalization program five times at Dewey, have done intensive outpatient therapy three times, and outpatient individual therapy three times. I’m still seeing my therapist there after three years clean and sober. The only reason I never did residential was because of my insurance denying me, and the staff fought hard to get me in, to no avail. I struggled a lot with authority and trying to do things my way, and it led to a lot of relapses, but my last treatment there I finally started trying the things suggested-I was willing to do anything to stop using heroin and alcohol. There is a variety of wellness activities offered during the day, and different support group meetings every evening on the grounds. The new building is amazing, and has its own cafeteria now with great food. If you’re willing to put in the work, the staff is there to help you every step of the way, from the doctors to the nurses to the techs.

Treatment was based upon my needs independent of a set treatment program that everyone needs to adapt to. Staff and the facility. The program administrators.

I have been sober for almost 3years now & these nurses treat me like I\'m a junkie. Just trying to get in to see the doctor is nearly impossible and they NEVER answer the phones to help. Getting medication is a hassel because since you can\'t see the doctor on time you must send in a refill request. Then they lose them or it takes about a week to process. Then the head nurse will call you to blame you for not seeing the doctor on-time and make you pay twice. Really horrible. I would NEVER recommend it here which is a shame because there inpatient program is great
The facility is nice, but they were quick to kick me out for a psychotic nervous breakdown with absolutely no help in me into the right direction so that I could get help from somewhere else.
