Staff was completely unprofessional. At one point they told a client to "kill himself". Counselors/Case Workers don't follow up. I believe they may be racist.

i'm doing good today. working, clean and got my family back in my life. they program helps you if the person wants to recover for himself not because he has to for others. you have to want it.

Allergy attack, didn't receive decongestants, ended up with bronchitis for first time in life. Instructors were good, but off-site housing and diet were horrible.

It was close by. Relapse is almost guaranteed. This place is a joke. People go there to get out of jail sentences and to find other addicts.

Detox worked with hospital transfer. No good follow up. Unless military.

Stonington Institute was my first rehab in 2013. I completed the 28 day program. The food was in no way healthy. ... I completed the program and stayed clean for 30 days before I relapsed. I went back...

They have several locations, plenty of rooms and a lot of open beds. They need more experienced aids and counselors to attend to the clients' needs... My husband spent time at Stonington Institute for...

Only go to Stonington Institute if you are desperate and unable to find/afford another treatment facility. The staff tries hard, but this is outweighed by the horrible housing and food. Stonington doe...

The houses aren't [upscale] but it's a roof over your head. And the program is where the help is. If your willing and wanting to help yourself. I was humbled and stayed clean for quite a while before ...

Absolutely would not recommend! Poor watchfulness, way too much freedom!!!! Too loose, security was much too relaxed.

A respected friend of mine recommended this program. I got my loved one in and hoped for the best. I wasn't aware of the living conditions until I went to supply some personal care items. I cried all ...

I attended the Juvenile Program at the age of 16. It was a 28 day program with off campus housing in Jewett City. Back then my stay was a good experience. That being said I returned 12 years later and...

They have a well respected and effective 6 week program and my cousins healthcare has this facility in it approved in network listings. As a union officer I have referred many members with substance/...

A 10% success rate means to me that it is a dangerous choice for those who've become desperate. My daughter died of a heroin overdose shortly after her stay there.

It was fine overall but just fine. Okay for basic needs, etc.

It's definitely not a place you go to be coddled, but that's not what i needed. we had to learn to work together, carry in the grocery delivery, make our own meals, clean up the house. It's not a fanc...

I was ready to become sober. My life was on a downward spiral. I almost died many times. If you are not ready for the harsh reality of becoming clean and sober and cannot get along with groups of peop...
