My daughter was in this facility twice when she 19 and 20. The first time she spent 6 months and the second time it was 5 months! She had the same counselor each time who became very familiar with both my daughter and us, her family. We were required to attend counseling and visitation, as a part of the program. Education and counseling were key to this program , not just for the addict but for the family as well, considering that addiction and recovery involves the whole family. My daughter is 23, and living a sober life full of ups and downs, but she puts her tools that shes learned to work for herself. I think that this facilitys strength lies in its understanding of the disease of addiction! I feel that the weaknesses of this facility arise in part from the lack of government funding. They are very community oriented and hold a telethon a couple times a year just to be able to offer the services that they do. They do the best with what they have! everyday! I thank God for the coping/life skills that she has learned from spending time in this recovery center!
