Reviews at a Glance
really doesn't deserve all the positive reviews. It's a typical rehab. They involved people in my treatment i didn't want involved. Kind of made me resent the place. Still sober. I get the feeling tha...
Having arrived at Fellowship Hall not knowing what to expect, I was warmly greeted by compassionate, caring staff , many of whom are in recovery themselves. The program works for those who truly commi...
We have private insurance, but this facility refused to work with us without $15-18K upfront. This is not what their website implies at all.
The only reason I don't give five stars for treatment effectiveness and facilities is because we all have and will continue to have room for growth. Having said that, I can honestly say that it is my ...
My father came to fellowship hall many years ago, probably has been almost 40 years ago. However, our family remains forever indebted to Fellowship Hall. He learned to cope with his issues without alc...
I was in the inpatient program at Fellowship Hall in 2014. After hitting my rock bottom, an angel of mercy at my employer gave me no choice and sent me to where my life would change forever. The day I...
12- Step approach, butlimited to 12-StepThe staff were very kind, the facility appears as a retirement home might, it was primarily 12-step focused, there weren't many alternatives offered outside of ...
Very nice facility. However will only be effective if and only if the participant is 100% committed to wanting help. Cannot work if it is the parent ' s goal. Sadly Fellowship was a fail for my son.
I was at Fellowship Hall back in 2005. They are spot on knowing how to help people get clean and sober and with the tools to continue to stay that way. Over the years they have only been getting bette...
Don\'t hang your hope here. Beautiful facility. However, they do not work well with families and things go on there which are never made clear to the family. They get their money first and then t...
I had a good experience at Fellowship Hall and found great benefits from the program. I was there 28 days. Finances were a huge concern for me and my family, but the staff worked with me and my insura...
This is a very strange place... I would not recommend this place to any one.
My son just completed his 28 day treatment at FH. He will stay for 60 more days in a house on-site. This place is phenomenal. The staff is incredible. They care about their guests. They get one-on-one...
I attended the Extended inpatient Program. The counseling helped me face a new life in recovery. I highly recommend Extended Care. I did not meet one employee at FH who wasn\'t qualified and encouragi...
Discharge/aftercare is not what it could be. Fellowship Hall is an excellent facility with many caring staff members. The people and the facility really made this place great.
The first week my loved one was there was great. They push the family program and it is expensive. The beautiful walking trails seemed to always be closed because residents would smoke. After going to...
I feel as if at the extended care, spouses should be more involved, based on what i see maritial issues are discussed a lot, and the sides of both parties are not taken in to consideration
It's staff and location were great. Located just outside of a larger city, Fellowship Hall is secluded, peaceful, and offers a life-changing experience. All you need is a desire to quit using and Fell...
Very encouraging, and attentive. Amazing, loved it.
They seem to care alot about you. Need more spetialist in some areas. They really help u with your rehab care about u as a person. Work with you closely.
FELLOWSHIP HALL is a great place. It gave my loved one a new life. Any age group can be successful there, but if you aren\'t willing to work hard and abide by the rules, forget it.. forget any sobri...
Fellowship Hall is a cross between kindergarden and prison. An iill person is not in need of toilet cleaning and punishment for conversations with members of the opposite sex. The focus should be on g...
Most counselors were recovering addicts. It was expensive, only had 12-step programs that do not work for everyone and it was very old fashioned.
I asked to use my cell phone to call my mother. They were trying to sell here a costly family program. The conflicts of interest with two staff is staggering. I left feeling worse. However, the...
Most of the employees are in recovery. Fellowship Hall saved my life. Any amount would have been worth it. I was at the end, bankrupt spiritually, emotionally and physically. Had I not gone I would ha...
I was not able to come home to a strong IOP in my county. There was no female meetings. I had to eventually find a female sponsor on my own, start a women's meeting myself, but still have to drive acr...
They saved my life. As a whole, the program can save your life if you accept and work it. I was at my rock bottom in my life at the time. I was reminded of my self-worth by the wonderful staff and the...
It is a wonderful facility if you can afford it; the price is very high. The staff is wonderful.
The staff was a strength of the facility.
I liked that the family was involved in the recovery process. Family members need treatment too.
Met the needs of the entire family not just the client (patient). Great facility.
The experience for our family was very good there the only complaint was it's very expensive and insurance paid for very little
saved my life.
Good experience with family counseling.
This facility is fantastic and will work for anyone that truly wants to be healed. Family counseling for week - very important.
Fellowship Hall offers a Family Week that was highly recommended. We participated in this week and were very glad we did! It gave us an opportunity to learn more about alcoholism from a parent's per...
I learned alot
This facility was very nice, rooms clean and staff was great. There is also a family program for the family members of addicts. I liked that some of the counselors are recovering addicts it provided m...
Recommitted myself to my program and have been clean ever since.
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
- 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.
