  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances.

This was the worst treatment center I have ever attended. They are more interested in your bank account than helping you. One of the “therapists” is downright unprofessional. Do not waste your time or money!!!

I was given a charity bed at Board Prep, and during my short stay, they treated me like I was v subhuman. They blatantly disregarded my safety, and I believe it was because I wasn't paying. They wanted me and another patient to essentially babysit another patient, staying that they didn't have enough staff to watch her. When this very mentally ill person accused me of controlling of the weather and threatened to hurt me, I left. They didn't care about my well-being at all.

They say you'll probably be friends forever with people you end up in a lifeboat with. So far that has been the case with the friends and staff I met at Boardprep Recovery. 3 years #cleanandsober #gratefulrecoveringaddict #friendofbill

I liked that I could talk to my counselor several times a week, not just 1 session a week like the lest place I went to. Since she worked in the evening and did not have a high caseload she had plenty of time for me. #real patient #thank you boardprep

They advocated for me to keep my job with my employer. Without their help I would have lost my career.
