If you’re putting money toward a family member’s health and well-being, you want to make sure you’re making the right choice for your Saint Helen alcohol and substance abuse treatment clinic. While the best option may still be to talk to our helpline experts so they can discuss your individual needs, looking at the reviews and ratings for some of the addiction treatment centers in or around your area is another good place to begin.
I attended meridan for 21 days and my advice to any new comers is this- You will be fed Breakfast (8:00 AM) Lunch (12:00pm) and dinner (4:00pm). Most meals you are able to get \"seconds\" if you are still hungry but not always. Ask your family or friends to bring you extra meals they can bring you pop as long as its caffiene free and they can also bring you frozen foods or any kind of snacks (discluding chocolate). Also you can smoke cigarettes as much as you please at Meridian your family or friends can drop you off cigarettes for your time there. Ipods or any electronics are prohibited during your stay. No ipods or cd plays however you can bring a radio only that plugs into the wall. Once 5:00pm hits each day, you have down time from then all the way until 10:00pm which is when you have to go to bed and weekends is Midnight. During your down time you can take a nap, watch movies that meridian supplies, watch tv in the living area or the tv room that is seperate. I advise to bring flip flops or sandals so you can take showers without being barefoot. There is seperate shower stalls. Also if you plan on writting letters to people you must bring your own supplies meridian will not supply you with anything except a pencil and a peice of paper. Also jewlery is allowed that includes earrings or necklaces. Between the hours of 8am-5pm you will attend morning mediation (mandatory) and also group lecture (mandatory). There is also a nurse and you can see her 3 times a day regarding your medication. Lastly, the meals there are not terrible they feed you high carb foods so you can gain healthy weight. They feed you things like lasanga, subs, roast beef sandwiches, etc. they give you decent sized meals with 2-3 sides. You will not go hungry but it is nice to have personal food from drop offs so you are able to eat during your down time at night. Staff is professional they are willing to help you if you are willing to help yourself. Dont be afraid to attend here, its changed my life and it could change yours
I’ve never seen so many helpful people as I’ve seen at Best Drug Rehab. It’s amazing. The staff there make going to treatment an enjoyable experience. The programs there are great and really helpful but it’s the staff that make all the difference. Everything any of them can do to help you out they are more than happy to do. If you are having a bad day someone is always there to cheer you up or help you work through whatever problem is bringing you down. They really show you that you can have fun when you’re sober and that’s a pretty great thing to do. When I was on drugs I didn’t really think I could have a good time when I was sober and so never really wanted to get clean. Seeing all the people at BDR really, truly enjoying themselves and the life they are creating changed something for me and I really saw how much better my life would be without drugs which turned into a willingness to get clean and sober. That willingness changed my life.
Individual treatment is a strength. Not enough family participation. Family member remains clean and sober
