When you’re investing in your health, your future and your family’s happiness, you want to make sure you’re making the best possible choice for your Annandale drug and alcohol addiction recovery center. While the best choice may still be to call our helpline advisors so they can discuss your personal requirements, looking at how others have reviewed or rated some of the addiction treatment facilities in or around your area is another excellent way to get started.
It was overall a positive, effective experience (I remained sober for 2.5 years after I left), but they failed to properly allow for my primary diagnosis (bipolar disorder). Food and nutrition. Not integrating care for those with MH diagnoses. Very few extracurricular activities offered.
I was terrified to go & they understood. They treat the person individually & treat every client like family. Still part of the family after over a year! Saved me.
Strengths include: Caring and helpful staff -very structured days -lots of groups and lectures during the day -family therapy -The Day of Enlightenment lecture to educate family members on addiction -very clean -the food is good. -there is gym and outside walking track that can be used by patients. -the houses that patients stay in are nice. -daily 12 step meetings -patients go out into community for a 12 step meeting. -spiritual counseling from a non-denominational reverend for those people who want to speak to a clergy person. However, it's a 12 step approach and the 12 steps are not for everyone. All of the counselors and staff were great. I felt comfortable talking to them about anything, whether it is was about something serious or just small talk. Everyone made me feel welcome. The counselors and staff know all about addiction inside and out. I learned a lot from being there.
