Clean, effective, professional but dated facility. One of the best in MN


1on1 plenty of counselors, which was a strength. length of treatment was a weakness. well counseled and they turned me in the right direction


The place is like a minimum security jail. It's full of patients who want out of jail and who are not serious. More than that, they are disruptive. The counselors are burned out and disrespectful.

    Gil’s feature from “Experts on what Recovery Looks and Feels Like,” from Christopher Kennedy Lawford’s 2013 bestseller, “Recover to Live: Kick Any Habit, Manage Any Addiction” (p. 292). “From Gil Gilchrist, Chief Executive Officer, New Beginnings at Waverly: Recovery is a lot like enlightenment—most of the people who have excellent recovery, you wouldn’t even know until you spent time with them. They are human beings first and recovering people second. The recovery ideology does not define them, but it’s an integral part of their life. Recovery is not a feeling. It is a state of awareness and reali¬zation. You realize that you are free. No matter how good or bad things get, the fundamental realization is that you are free.”
