So, this was my first inpatient rehab. I was not ready to stop using at the time, however I was court & family ordered. It took 2-3 weeks for me to get used to all the rules and just come around to completely new lifestyle changes. I wasn’t problematic, but this was all just so new and different than anything. After a few weeks, I started truly trying. I was following rules and trying my best. Well, I was already on the counselors bad side. I didn’t stand a chance. No matter how hard I tried, I just felt like the counselors gave me zero respect. And the counselors caused tons of drama too! If one small thing happened that upset one of them, it became the whole group’s problem, privileges would be taken away (even smoke breaks). It was just A LOT for a newly clean/sober person to deal with. Overall, I would say Dawn Farm has a militant approach to treatment and it’s lots of tough love. They are not even a little bit gentle. One big thing for me, is they only offered group therapy sessions and nothing one-on-one. In the end, I was kicked out of the program 2 months in for “breaking too many rules.” I was not ready to leave treatment. I do not feel like Dawn Farm helped me towards finally getting clean/sober. Thankfully I found a different program that really helped. I would not recommend this program to anyone.
