Highly structured program keeps everyone busy.
Counselors are caring and professional. Keep AA and NA meetings in -house, they are more meaningful
Some kind of personal music of choice, listen to music helps me to deal with heavy stress, and a fitness room with simple equipment
every thing is good
Good use of structure to change addictive habits. The inn could do without certain staff.
i feel more spiritual but there could be more rek time
outside events more
the small groups are most helpful and kitchen work is therapeutic
not a thing
role play job interview so we can be properly prepared when we step out with that suit which will play a purpose
i feel the staff here is doing an excellent job
I BELIEVE they are doing an incredible job.
The Facility is great with structure. The counseling here is the best I've received. This place is more than I thought it ever could be and has changed me in so many different ways that I'll be forever grateful. Same day doctors appointments would be an improvement.
every thing this facility is doing is grate
The facility is clean, safe, and they care. Out of the treatment facilities I've been to, this is by far the best one.
add music therapy to small group sessions.
They are very efficient with all aspects that a treatment center should have. Very engaged staff all across the board. Even the secratary are helpful.
Group Therapy is great the food is good
i feel they are doing great with helping people recover great counseling and what not
It brings the best out of you
all things neccerary
more experanced cousolers
One on one with counselor was helpful and productive. I enjoyed going to mass daily.
very good program and structure but it could use more theraputic activities such as music or art to nurture creativity as wellas physical and mental health
The structure element is most helpful.
Spirituality is great. Helping us understand the 12 Step Program. More one on one counseling is needed
maybe better workout facilities but we dont necessarily come here to work out. we come here for recovery.
i feel a gym or some more exersize equipment would of been great
Super clean and dedicated to recovery. Big Book availability is low, some behavior could be more quickly addressed.
not much more
Empty bathroom garbages more. Door knobs and railings wiped down more often. The 6-7 time slot for phones gives 24 out of 185 people during the week to make a call. Personally having childeren that go to sleep early, this is not fair to them, who have trouble already dealing with this situation
none of the above.
This facility has given me hope that I could have a clean happy life.
this facility brakes the old you down and billed a new you
the program it self is very well put together
the spirituality is great
have a sick room or infirmary for sick patients. dont count those days against their treatment so guys cant go and hide in there. i feel it would could down on colds/flu spreading to staff and clients like wildfire. ive had a cold half the time ive been here like many others and its impacts learning.. put some of the donated money into fitness. i understand its about treatment but i think exercise can help the process and options are limited.
not a thing
I wouldn't change anything at all.
The counseling staff desperately needs an overhaul.
I think this facility is run excellently
