When you are putting money toward your health, your future and your family’s happiness, you’ll need to make sure you’re making the right decision for your Oxon Hill alcohol and drug addiction recovery facility. While the best course of action may still be to call our hotline experts so they can discuss your personal needs, seeing the reviews and ratings for some of the addiction rehabilitation clinics in or around your area is another great way to get started.
The staff was very professional and experienced and the facility was well-kept. The food could have been better. I think it was a big part of my son's eventual recovery, but he was in the program only one time and it took a while before he finally gave up pot. At least he has been clean for a couple of years now and I hope it continues.
I am dually diagnosed and have attended Warwick there times, the last being seven years ago (So some time had passed; I have been sober for over seven years now). My experience of the place was always good, but also very much mixed. If a person has a very severe physical problem- late-stage AIDS, a wet brain, etc.- this is NOT an ideal facility for the person, as it is in a fairly rural setting and staff is not well-equipped to handle the medical emergencies very frail or sick patients may face. As several reviews mentioned, rooms are locked (except during mealtimes), and it is awful to be sent from one group to another when you are constantly falling asleep due to being on lithium or other detox meds: So if you are alcoholic or otherwise someone w/the option of detoxing at a hospital before going to rehab, i would suggest that as well. This is a good facility for dually diagnosed people who are already on a regimen of psych.meds. That said, Warwick Manor staff were overall really great, primarily recovering individuals themselves who very much believe in what they do and take it seriously. Some are more understanding than others, but they all care and want you to succeed. I was embarrassed to return, but they\'re glad to know a person is still alive and trying. The food was AMAZING. I also really enjoyed going to meetings outside the facility, which you could sign up to go to during lunch hour and to which they\'d take people at night- it was how I got into going to mtgs., something an outpatient rehab suggested previously but something for which I hadn\'t developed a taste before. I REALLY appreciated that cigarette breaks were frequent, and that some breaks between groups were fairly long- that \"down time\" to socialize, sit quietly, or whatever was important to me. Remember why you are here time. Now, the drama between/among clients could get bad- probably my own worst problems there had to do w/\"mean girls\"- but last time I was there, i got along w/staff okay, kept in mind that focusing on others while there for ourselves is a huge waste and that these people are crazy if they choose not to focus on themselves. So \"Drama\" was heavy there, but entertaining to a degree. Don\'t give away cigarettes is also my advice. I write this 7yrs later because I have a friend at Warwick right now! He wrote that he is doing well, too. They need to bring back their yearly reunion event though. Hope some of this is still applicable/accurate!
I was at the Massie unit twice. They opened there doors to me with open arms when I relapsed. I highly recommend the program. The staff really cares about the well being of the clients. The program does work if you work it. You just have to be willing to accept the help that is offered. I look forward to returning to The Massie Unit and attending a meeting in the future. It was definitely a life changing experience for me. Thank you to each and every staff member. You helped me begin to live life again, and be grateful for the things I have.
