Alina Lodge

61 Ward Road, Blairstown, New Jersey, 07825
Treatment at Alina Lodge is based on the idea that addiction is a chronic, progressive and potentially fatal disease that is also highly treatable. Effective recovery involves the changing of attitudes, values, feelings and family roles, and Alina is dedicated giving individuals the therapeutic tools to begin this process. The hope is that clients will leave the rehab with a renewed feeling of optimism, as well as the coping skills to maintain a long and satisfying life in sobriety.

Alina Lodge is a dinosaur of a treatment center where Lock down Misery is the playbook. Counselors are dictated to by ancient angry man - Gerry Gunnels. Not good. His sole role is to make \"students\" miserable to get them to surrender to the ancient ways of G. Delaney - the Founder. The Accommodations are beyond bad. For Men -- plan on being miserable with no sleep for the first month. Food -- heavy meats and potatoes -- no Nutrition at all. There is some ditz who has no power over the menu - heavy on white sugar / white flour - fatty foods -who walks around asking everyone how their lunch is? HUH ? Stay away unless you are out of options - there are better ways to get treatment and get sober.

I hope everyone enjoys reading the anonymous reviews from Alina Lodge\'s Board of Directors. At least the Clinical Director had the integrity to use her name and title.

I attended Alina Lodge as an absolute last resort. I had tried a couple other 30-day treatments and intensive out-patient programs. I wanted so badly to get sober in my mind but could not figure out how to make it happen. I was watching my world crumble around me. I was loosing my wife, my daughter, my family, my friends, my business, and my enthusiasm for life. As I got to the last days of my drinking all I could think about was how and when I could get the next drink. A very highly respected Dr., who treated me in out-patient, and is truly an angel in my life, told my wife "there's one last place for Bill to go, but it's long term, and strict. It's his last hope. It's called Alina Lodge." She was desperate, and so was I. She contacted Alina and they said get him here ASAP. I later found out the Dr. had also made a call to give them some background on me. I was broken at that point and WILLING to do whatever it took. I packed a couple bags and off I went. The time I spent there was the greatest gift I've received from my family. God put me right where I needed to be when I needed to be there. My time there was hard because I needed to do the hardest work of my life by looking inward to uncover what was going on with me. The Alina staff and my fellow students provided an environment for me to do this. It wasn't comfortable, but as I've learned since, "there's no growth in the comfort zone, and no comfort in the growth zone" as a respected member of my home group says. As I now share with others, I needed to learn how to actually live, not just how to stop drinking. As a result of working the 12 steps of AA and the solid foundation I built at Alina, I am now living a life that I could not have imagined while I was drinking. God has shown His grace on me and my family, I have experienced that spiritual awakening that's talked about in the Big Book of AA, and now I live my life in accordance with a new set of principles. I thank God for His grace and love, and I tank Alina Lodge for allowing me the time to begin to transform myself into the man God intended me to be.
