The personal experience of the staff was excellent. They didn't help enough with the insurance. Offers a family component to aid the entire family.

The people that work over there are very friendly. They need more space and I think they need more of a budget.

Hazelden set realistic expectations for recovery. Not a quick-fix push. Long-term solutions. Long-term goals.

Not making it specific to the needs of the client. They failed to treat the client.

I wish all treatment could offer the higher end amenities. But it's about money and insurance. If you can finance it, it's great

Great food, buffet style. I gained a massive amount of weight while there. This is a very expensive facility. I did not stay sober after completion but now I have almost 10 years of sobriety.
