Awful place! Just drug you up and send you on for treatment with their cohorts!!! Doesn't concentrate on recovery as they let visitors confront patients just entering recovery! All rules broken!
Awful. Should be shut down, unprofessional. too many ODs while "getting help", too many staff members who cross boundaries.
Great counselors who are all about the clients recovery.
Corrupt Modes based solely on money. No personal time with councilors. Pretends it's dual diagnosis, but can't even handle 1 diagnosis. Place is filthy. Avoid this rehab completely.

- Process Abuse Treatment
Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
