Amazing treatment plans and counsellors to help you. This facility was amazing. Treatment plans and counselling was effective and made me change my life around.
Strong history of success. It was far away and there was limited access. Reasonable insurance acceptance, treatment plans that work.
One of the best around. It was a little pricey. Had a indoor pool when i was there.
Quick intake procedures and was easy to get treatment. I was left out of the loop as to treatment progress because I wasn't a blood relation to the patient. Know what you are getting yourself into. Th...

I. Was very happy with the staff. I need to come back. I messed up and started drinking again.

Did not like this facility.
Teaching an addict how to live in reality would be a good start. Only centering treatment on the 12 step program is not for everybody. Support, understanding and self reliance need to b taught... wh...
many weaknesses. would not return.
good Dr's on staff. receptionist very rude, long time for check out. good counceling provided.
It was a great place; there were a lot of groups to keep you busy. However, they needed more extracurricular programs.
The program helped me stay clean for one year so far, but the place was filthy. The staff experience and food was excellent. However, there was an unfairness of how patients were treated.
I was a little hesitant at first but the staff and other patients really opened my eyes and I couldn't be happier now. The staff was great.
Very lazy, rude and inexperienced receptionists. There were good people there to assist.
I would have died without the help I received. Wanted to make calls daily, but was only allowed once every two days. In retrospect, this was probably a good thing because calls could get pretty emot...
This was the worst experience of my life. I was there for alcohol treatment and was roomed with a schizophrenic patient. I was afraid to sleep with her there. I was strip searched upon entry which was...
Three to a room. Staff to patient ratio is inadequate. Not enough time spent with the psychiatrist. I could only get ibuprofen twice per day after filling out a form. I recently had surgery and was...
I have unfortunately had to be hospitalized prior to my confinement at Roxbury. I say "confinement" because it truly is like a jail. Although I have never been incarcerated, it is just like I would i...
I believe that you will get out of Roxbury what you want to put into it. From my observation this is close to universally true. Oddly enough I found out later that my sponsor went to Roxbury as well....
They were very short staffed. There wasn't enough supervision. Not enough staff and the counseling was not effective.
Wouldn't go back.
Good food; a clean facility; stricter rules (hygiene items must be sealed at admission is one); smoking is allowed during breaks (outside); daily rec time; P.T. in mornings; military program for activ...

- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
- Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
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.
