Wonderfull staff


Inappropriate behavior towards female residents.


Only interested in money. Promises are made when you arrive but not followed through... If you want to get sober this is the last place you should be!


Unethical in every way. There is no food provided. The client ends up paying out of pocket. Some of the staff drink and pop pills so they are unable to drive clients around.

Areas of Focus
Animal Therapy

Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.

Creative Arts Therapy

Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
