The staff was wonderful; however, the accommodations were subpar. It was an overall affordable option.

Was a very clean facility. I would recommend this facility to others.
Although the facility was sometimes short staffed, the staff was very competent and great overall. It was also a safe and clean environment.
I was comfortable and received all I needed. I am still sober. Unfortunately I believe they are under different ownership now.
My son is doing great. He is looking for a job. Since he left he has been communicating better and smiling a lot more. I would reccomend this rehab to other people. They really took care of my son. He...
There was informative instruction.
Good entry level facility because of price -- not effective enough for long-term recovery. Didn't help our son recover as much as hoped for.
Refers clients to facilities all over the country. Very cost effective with very good support staff. Would send member of my own family there. Do not get paid for referrals.
Great, changed my life and my thinking.
