Great place! Staff are very helpful and go above and beyond for the clients. The food could be better but that is the only issue and not even an important one.


You get your own room, incredible therapeutic value right there! The staff is top notch from top to bottom, the counselors are *amazing*. You can live on the food :), but gourmet's may be disappointed...


very nice place.


I found New Prospects to be effective for me. One can only get out what one puts in. I met many great people and a few not so great, both workers and clients. For me, I needed the this place. Life ...


This was the best 30 day program I have ever been to. I recommend it to everyone.


A completely unsafe environment for women.

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
