If you are putting money toward a family member’s health, future and happiness, you want to make sure you’re making the best decision for your South Egremont alcohol and drug addiction rehab facility. While the smartest alternative may still be to call our helpline advisors so they can discuss your personal needs, seeing how others are reviewing or rating some of the addiction recovery centers in or around you is another great place to begin.
It was an overall very good facility, with great connectivity.
Baldpate Hospital is a small, quaint facility in the woods of Georgetown, MA and is a hidden gem among rehabs and detoxes. It's unfortunate that insurance companies now dictate the length of stay at treatment facilities in Massachusetts. It's the same everywhere, not just t Baldpate. Our legislators need to instead of having some flunkie at an insurance company make medical decisions that affect the lives of people that need help longer than the five days that is common among treatment centers in Massachusetts.
This program saved my life. I was addicted to heroin and cocaine. I also used every prescription narcotic I could get my hands on (opioids, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, etc.). In 2004 I was charged with 14 felony charges, including 2 armed robberies, in Middlesex and Norfolk counties. My father bailed me out with the understanding that I would find a place to go until I was sentenced. I called dozens of programs but was not accepted into any of them. I had no money, no assets, no insurance, no transportation, and was in serious legal trouble. Someone in jail told me about this program. I was confused by the name "Teen Challenge" because I was 20 years old, but the guy who told me about the program assured me it was for adults who were 18+. I was hesitant because I was an atheist and he said it was a faith-based program. With no other options available I called them and without hesitation, they accepted me into the program. It was such a relief to have somewhere to go. In August of 2004, I came into the program. They patiently brought me to every court date without fail and vehemently fought for me to stay out of jail. I was convicted of 9 felonies, but the judge saw the changes in me and eventually sentenced me to 3 years probation (running concurrently)! I have since achieved personal, spiritual, and economic success. I won't get into all the details here, but the program brought me back to life. This is so much more than a rehab!
