Met a lot of nice people and counselors who supported me. However, there was too much vaping and smoking, and cigarettes were incentivized. I have been free of cigarettes for eighteen years, and then picked them up again because of this place. I'm now struggling to quit. They promised a lot during the sales pitch that didn't come to fruition. It would have been nice to have been chosen for the EMDR treatment, but I think that because I was self pay, they saved it for the clients with bigger reserves of insurance dollars. The psychiatrist dropped the ball with me, as he kept me on a medication that was actually causing tardive dyskinesia and didn't meet with me before my discharge. I feel that they need to update their medical model beyond just the 12 steps and getting a sponsor. These things are helpful but they are no substitute for real medical treatment. Medications at the residence were clumsily distributed by BHTs, bless their hearts. The residence is also a half hour drive away from the facility, and it is surrounded by two rat infested abandoned buildings.
