Very intensive. Excellent follow up after discharge

They sobered me up, but we\'re more interested in what my insurance would cover. It\'s only counseling is AA meetings. If you\'re sick from withdrawal you aren\'t allowed to rest or recover. You MUST ...

Fairbanks is very focused on if your insurance will pay or if you will pay. They will have a financial counselor talk to you before you are admitted who will want a deposit of $500 to $2000 or more. ...

I felt that Fairbanks discriminates against HIV+ individuals who require opiate medications to manage side effects from anti-retroviral therapy.

Nice people; however, didn't enjoy the lockdown.

Its reputation was good, but it was costly. They treat you with dignity.

left treatment and didn't have faith in programs to help on the out.

No aftercare put in place. If you can\'t pay you can\'t get it. Staff seemed very disorganized. I asked the same questions of various levels and never received concrete answers.

They offer detox and treatment. There was not enough family involvement. They need more follow-up treatment and dual-diagnosis treatment.

They are not concerned with helping the patient or their families. Very sad excuse for a rehab program. Very shameful. The treatment of patients and families was horrible.
