This facility should be shut down by the state. Aside the filth and unsanitary conditions, the staff is rude, counselors are not licensed professionals, but former addicts and are incompetent. Items w...

If you are thinking of sending a loved one or going your self to get help...STAY AWAY! I am not joking or upset. I have been to many rehab places and this place is a joke! Not only was it very dirty t...

Avoid parkside, this is from a caregiver not an addicts perspective, they turn over staff so quickly, my brother has been there 2 weeks and they completely changed staff to times. stability is key a...

Your program is not what a drug addict needs. Abstinence works well for alcoholics. It DOES NOT WORK FOR HEROINE ADDICTION. I believe if you were a Suboxan based program he would have benefited from...

Awful experience. After contacting facility about treatment I had to wait 5 days \"for a bed\". Upon arrival I was assessed an hour wait and then spent 8 hours in the waiting room. I\'m sure they were...

Total chaos and confusion. Day to day staff had no management. High level administration seems to be non-existent.

If you care for your loved ones well-being and fighting their addiction please please consider going else where. From my wife\'s experience the place is a dump on the inside. I really wish I would hav...

A loved one of mine has been to parkside 4 times since 2009, most recently in December 2015. The facility, staff and program have steadily declined with each visit. This treatment center is for profi...

Strengths included: Tough counselors, 12 step focus. TA's had compassion. However, Should have separate recreation facility's by age. Parkside must be doing something right, I have 3 years, 8 months ...

It was an alright facility.

CMC

Great staff, very clean and comfortable. This was a great facility. However, there were not many activities to do outside of groups.

Davis

Make sure you are truly doing it for yourself, and not another person.

Staff formed unethical relationships with client. Female client's work with sexual abuse issues with male counselors. Bedbug problem ignored. No real treatment goes on.

I spent time at park side mid December 2014. I choose to do my recovery there because....we were told I would get one on one counseling and could talk to a therapist whenever I needed and I would get ...

They were trained professionals and really knew what they were doing.

Room was filthy with bed bugs in the worst mattress I have ever experienced. It was more like a box spring. Group sessions were unorganized and as a non smoker I felt like everything focused on "smoke...

The facility was awful. Roaches in my filthy room and bedbugs! The only thing worth eating was the salad bar. I am a petite woman and I don\'t know how some of the young/big men survived

The facility was old and run down. My counselor, who is no longer there, had very bad boundaries and did not respect the patient/counselor relationship.

My experience with Parkside was horrible. It helped the first few days while I was actually detoxing from heroin and the nursing staff was excellent. Outside of that, I received a very poor plan of tr...

Staff seemed to really care.

It wasn't a nice hotel but it wasn't a dump. The facility was always full and the counselors seemed overloaded in terms of cases. The majority of employees seemed to genuinely care and many were reco...
