Terrible place, insensitive staff. Poor accommodations , dorms are a disaster. No one really goes unless legally mandated.

i did not personally attend the facility, my mother did. they were very good about including family in her treatment process...the facility ecourgaed inclusion of family members


Faculty, cleanliness, support. I did not personally go here but someone close to me did and they did wonderfully. I appreciate the facility.


It was clean and the people were treated well. Relapses seem to be a common problem so treatment doesn't seem too effective. It largely just send like a fairly standard rehabilitation center.


I have been sober 43 years. I had negative feelings for St. Joes at first but after the great counseling and after care changed my life.


I attended a half way house as aftercare treatment and relapsed there. I was not permitted to re-enter.


Strengths include: long term program, counselors and staff that honestly care, strict, 12 step based, men/women separate, saved my life. However, there was not enough food, small rooms, bad beds. I've...

Areas of Focus
Out Patient

Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.


The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
