I THINK THAT THE FACILITY IS DOING A GREAT JOB

rated facility as: 9/10

they are very caring and loving. they are concern about you and your feelings. they make sure that your are comfortable and answer all your needs. what I think they should do different is, splitting the doses of the people who are not comfortable through the whole day. splitting it up as a take home.

better service

rated facility as: 3/10

There is nothing I would change.

rated facility as: 7/10

What this facility is doing right is maintaining a structured clean positive drug free environment. To me I like that they have set times for everything like groups, meetings, medication and times to eat which helps a person that wouldn't normally have a set schedule get adjusted to having set schedule and helps them get used to the recovery process even after they leave the facility. The only thing I think can use some improvement is the last vital check before bedtime, because medication time is at 9:00pm clients take there sleep meds only to be woken up a few hours later between 11pm to 12am to take vitals which ruins the process of the medication working.

rated facility as: 9/10

They have the right idea about recovery but I personally think they should be a rehab facility.I feel as if they only do as little as they can because their not a rehab, just a stepping stone and I feel that if they we're a rehab facility they would do a lot more to help....and I don't say this about all the counselors here because some of them go out their way to help you and prepare you for the next step...but also some do as little as they can.

rated facility as: 6/10

they treat the clients very good. Give us a more activity's too much down time.
