I did not benefit. Staff was fickle, counselor sent me to the doctor often and he just prescribed pills. Saw my counselor maybe four times in 3 1/2 weeks for about 10 minutes at a time. She chastised me at first for not participating. No one told me there was a daily schedule. Food was o.k. first week then began to taste awful. Made me gag. They wanted me to stay another 28 days, said I had good insurance. Counselor got my husband to leave on the day he drove there to pick me up. They almost didn\'t give me my meds upon leavings (had others from my neurologists and gastroenterologist). People there were getting off of meth, heroin, etc. Had lost their kids to CPS and some had been homeless. They laughed that I was there for drinking wine. Nothing in common because they were also young, 20s-30s. Not many had held a job for 30+ years as I had. Cabins were rustic, charming at first but really, 4 people to a tiny room with one bathroom. Awful place, fickle and sometimes downright mean staff

I could write 5 pages about my time there but decided to keep it simple. The food was lacking, how someone gave it 5 stars is we beyond me. They have a cafeteria but it is only open at mealtimes and at night. You have to supply your own coffee. You must keep up with your meds as they won't notify you when it's time. On the other hand, they can't wait to run to the local pharmacy to fill the prescriptions you brought with you. I was there needing pain management and a doctor never addressed the problem leaving me in pain and not in a good mood the entire time I was there. The staff was as 2 faced as could be if they said they were going to do something for you well don't hold your breath. If you part of the flock then this might be a good place for you but if you dare stand up then keep looking

It is not strictly 12 step based but suggested alongside their �Positive Recovery� program. Any assigned homework or treatment plan work is not enforced. encourages a structured life. Weakness were staff, amenities are broken.

From Bourbon Street New Orleans to Serenity, The Right Step in Wimberley was the best choice I've ever made in my struggle with a daily meth addiction! I was admitted 1 week after Mardi Gras 2015, now it's Dec 2017 and I'm chairing Narcotics Anonymous meetings thanks to the foundation of my recovery at The Right Step. If you're struggling with an addiction please know you're worthy of a life without active addiction. My blessing to you...may your tomorrows always be better than your yesterdays.
