This program saved my life.


I can't save enough about recovering champions. It was a tough but wnderful. The holistic approach teaches about life.


If you are really serious about getting sober, this isn't the place for you. Most people were involuntary placed there by either the courts or family members.

I have been to multiple inpatient rehabs in my state of Massachusetts and Gosnold is one of the best facilities in the state. I went first to the Gosnold detox and then to the Emerson House and was in...


Staff is not well trained. They had clean good programs.


They were compassionate and have knowledge of what your going through.


The one on one counseling. The food was good for people with food allergies. They want to be involved with the after care and treatment. They want to encourage after care.


The location was nice, but there was a lack of outside resources.


Had a decent experience there.


Lack of proper supervision over uncontrolled substances being brought in and over the patients actions.


I told a nurse about an issue with pills because I was approached she said she knew this but no time to watch the other patients. I told her to higher someone no funding. So in other words don\'t sen...


I worked at Gosnold in 2006. The CEO had such a passion for helping the client\'s. Most CEO\'s don\'t really care about helping people, Its usually about the money. The staff is awesome food is great ...


They have experienced staff. Sober 9 years now all because of the support I received from my after care therapist. However, there is not enough aftercare support.


It's far away from anything so it's like a retreat, getting away and getting better and staff was really nice. Need to keep people longer. 7 days on suboxone and then you're out. The place was clean a...

All of the counselors were in recovery. It was a good facility with wonderful groups and support. However, I needed more time there.

The location was great. The staff was inexperienced.


The structure was great. However, the mental health treatment could have used improvement. They offer classes in addiction.


It is a wonderful place to recover in a beautiful location. The basic counseling and no frills approach was great. However, there are privacy issues and crowding.


The staff was one hundred percent dedicated to helping each of us in the way the best suited our cases. I am honored to have been a part of this place and so very grateful for Gosnold.


Sticking to the rules of the facility was a positive aspect; however, it did not work for him.


The facility is run extremely well and the staff were tough but fair. I was given every chance to enhance my recovery. It was a no frills approach. The size was a downfall.


Straightforward program. Detox to rehab, food and the staff were great and helpful. However, there is no caffeine.


Experienced and compassionate staff. It was based on money; we need more affordable treatment centers.


I believe this is a top notch program. Everybody in there was extremely happy with the services, including myself. They offered to set me up with aftercare upon my discharge as well. The detox was won...

Gosnald on Cape Cod saved my life....I was skeptical at first but after up to prenent time I feel it was the best decision I've ever made


Strengths include: Reputation,community awareness,very large outreach program and treatment aftercare centers.The downfall is that management is not truly in touch with the people who are front line c...


Do not go here if you are looking to detox. Aftercare treatment may by adequate, but if you are looking to detox DO NOT GO HERE.


Only detox facility I've been to, and so far has worked for me. Taught me a lot about myself and helped me identify with others going through the same thing. The staff really gave a damn — they made...


Was given a lot of respect at Gosnold.


The one on one counseling was the best.


attend family support groups. They were helpful.


Not the best, not the worst.




It would be difficult to improve upon. Transitional coaching played a huge part.


I feel that the facility lacked in support provided to family members. There should be an active mtg offered right at the facility, it would only benefit the individual with their recovery. I know m...
