Understaffed and under treated. Cabins have snakes. If you are looking for a reputable place, keep looking. Highly recommend Robs Ranch.

This place has really gone downhill in the past few months. I would not recommend sending anyone there. Not enough staff, they lump everyone in the same group and show movies. Don't waste your money.

Do NOT pay before they bill your insurance company. They will pressure you into paying upfront but you can wait until they bill your insurance company and then pay your coinsurance.

KM

Not impressed. Needs a lot of improvement starting with the Directors.

George

My wife attended this place and it is nothing like they said. There are some good people there or there were, but I would not waste my time sending anyone there if you are serious about recovery.


Areas of Focus
Holistic Therapy

Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
