The food sucks it's like jail food


I was on the Moms unit. Some counselors were just there for the paycheck and you could tell. Some, however, are amazing. I truly will never forget them. Whenever I get down, I remember one counselor s...


I came into the center in March. I was in treatment for 90 days. Staff taught me so much. I learned who I was. One staff member told me every day she loved me. I learned to love myself again. Another ...


Haymarket Center literally saved my daughter's life. We do not come from money and we were unable to find a treatment center that would even accept my daughter. Today, she is 6 years in sobriety and w...


Needs to up staff credentials for this type business .Not up to supporting and training staff . Main focus in business should be treatment of substance abuse, to insure success of this venture.This lo...


I had an interview with Haymarket Center for their case-aide/ case-manager position, or so I thought I had an interview. Seeing their listing on Indeed.com made my day because as a recent college grad...


Horrible. Do NOT go here or send anyone you care about here. The staff are very rude and unprofessional. I don’t know how 95% of them even have a job, considering their lack of intelligence and expe...


If I didn't get thrown out for insurance reasons I would have left and OD'd or left addicted to Suboxone. expect the staff to treat you in that manner, and they sure won't put you out because u don't ...


It's excellent. Strengths:Strong Weakness:Creditable


I had an alright experience if only they'd done a better job with my detox I'd probably be clean today.


There could be more professionalism displayed throughout the organization. Because everyone reserves the right to feel or believe what they may about addiction sometimes you feel like you are talked d...


I was here over 20 years ago, the place was an excellent place for treatment. Many of the women I was in treatment with are still sober today. This place is dedicated to helping individudals and fam...




The counselors are really involved, but food wasn't good. They should have more counseling sessions instead of 2 days out of a week


It had room to except patients but limited knowledge of progressive treatment options, continue to obtain knowledge


Based in reality which is good but no much avalable space. Six and a half years sober, first time in my life this long,


Affordable program but needs quality improvements


the staff and location were strenghts. Plain no visitations was harsh. A lot of the day was watching sobriety video groups were good comfrortable atmosphere


It was easy to get in; however, there was nothing to do and it just wasn't a nice place to go.


It just doesn't seem like a good place.


They could have been more professional.


They are nice, caring and clean. However, there is not much family involvement or input.


Effective treatment that is administered with empathy and compassion.


I think if you are poor or homeless and have nowhere to detox, you should go here, but the most they'll give you to make it through is an advil. And that includes not having a single kind word for yo...


This place focused on their receiving payment! It one's insurance ran out or ceased to pay one was instantly ejected from the program regardless of progress towards to sobriety! This place is a joke. ...


Still clean today. Going into treatment was the best decision I made. They provided me with the tools I needed to be where I am today.The recovery home was what I needed. I had been on drugs for over...

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.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
