Very bad experience
Treatment was very effective; it was a good facility.

The facility was nice and provided many therapy options. However, I disliked a lot of the nursing staff.
This place is a joke.

Of the more than 10 rehabs that my son went to, this was by far the best, based not only on their compassion but their various treatment modalities.
When the money runs out - so do they. No compassion once you've spent everything you have. They had a great level of care but were very expensive. They could provide no assistance. So we drained my 40...
