If supposedly the health dept said cats is following cdc requirements during the corona virus epidemic, then why has none of the clients seen any health dept workers doing a walk through of the facili...


Unfortunately I can not say anything good about this facility. Forcing loved ones to be apart from one another. Not allowing them to visit causes havoc in a relationship. It dwindels their will to sti...


I thought the community counseling was excellent..i learned about enabeling. It was very painful to learn that my love was not an antidote for addiction. It was beneficial to learn boundaries and beha...


This place is a joke...The staff is a joke and they dont know whats going on in there.


On my first and only visit I was treated poorly. The woman behind the desk acted as if she had better things to do. When I told her it was my first visit and I wasn\'t sure what to do. She said fill o...


I was at CATS for my mandated 77 days. The counselors were all very attentive to any worries or questions I had. The R.A.\'s for the most part were very fair, as in, treating everyone equally. The foo...


I\'m sorry but CATS program falls very short of addressing the Economic and Social and Psychological problems that are associated with and are the cause of the obsession and the compulsion to use mind...

the counselors and the classes were great. could use a new building. the point they were trying to convey came across. The counselors re former addicts and related to myself a lot. good place!!!


What a joke. I sat thrut group which is mandatory before visitation. I will do everything in my power to turn in all of the rays. And see this run like stellar mars and many other legit rehabs. Sorr...


Really glad I went here.


I would like to see more exercise and leisure activities offered for the clients. Also, would like to be more involved in counseling one on one. They offer a group counseling session once a week but...

Areas of Focus
Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.


Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
