Big joke of a place to go !! Rude, manipulative, deceiving, uncaring !! They continually tried to start me on taking new medications...They forced me to go to the hosp and get heart tests done and I had NO heart problems before or while there ! They wouldn\'t let me decide if I wanted the tests or not !

We are thankful for the chance to talk to you about our treatment protocols today. Our clinical team's top priorities are keeping our clients safe, healthy and sober. Addiction treatment is not one size fits all because no two people are exactly alike. Our staff builds a unique treatment plan for each client that is tailored to their needs and recovery goals. These plans can include everything from medication assisted therapies that can make the detox process as safe and comfortable as possible... to yoga and nutrition counseling. We take precautions to ensure that our clients receive the best care with the highest levels of health safety and lowest possible risk. We only have one goal- to help you get your life back and find freedom from addiction. We would like to invite anyone who has questions or concerns about medication assisted therapies for addiction treatment or any other questions about drug and alcohol rehab to call us. We are happy to help you through this tough time.

Compassion and professionalism. The staff genuinely cares about the client's well being, and go above and beyond to make sure the clients are com This facility is top notch I had a family member struggle with addiction who had several failed attempts at other treatment centers. I felt confident enough in the staff and program at AIA to entrust my loved one there. She completed the program and has been successful in her recovery ever since.

Kind, loving, supportive staff members, structured groups, great communication with families. Due to the structure of the program the facility fills up quickly and we have had to turn people away. I think Above It All Treatment Center is one of the best programs around with the most caring staff! I have watched time and time again as this program goes above and beyond for its clients and provides them with treatment that works.

KS- Addiction hurts many more people than just the person struggling with substance abuse. Families and loved ones can play a key role in the recovery process, so we try to involve them whenever it is possible and healthy to do so. Thank you for recognizing this and other important parts of our efforts to end addiction. We are so grateful for your feedback.

Located in beautiful mountain setting with spectacular views, Above it All will help clients recover from Physical, mental, and spiritual addiction. Genuine and compassionate staff who truly care will share your burden, provide you with the essential tools to get and stay clean, will provide laughter and tears and stand beside you and share in your success. Currently do not have a female program. I have seen so many broken people walk, limp, and crawl through our doors seeking reprieve from active addiction. Our team stands by them, counsels, them, and guides them. They are made whole again by the time they leave. They have a sparkle in their eyes, a smile on their face. That's what happens at AIA.

Compassion, Understanding, Experience were nice. I have worked with AIA for roughly 6 months. The clinical care is second to none which never comes at the expense of fair and equal treatment. Patients are treated with compassion, respect and understanding. Our amenities are clean, safe and comfortable for patients. With us, you are never just a number, you are our family and we treat you as such :)

Private homes nestled in a gorgeous mountain setting, chef prepared meals catered towards healthy living, strong local 12 step meetings, fun diverse weekend activities, individual counseling that is customized for the individual, groups geared towards sustaining sobriety, extremely supportive staff and amazing peer to peer support. If you aren't okay with a small town feel, this might not be the place for you. This is not like other treatment programs, this is a place where you can come to get clean and sober and learn to stay that way. AIA isn't just about getting clients sober, but really focuses on helping clients with their underlying co-occurring issues as well as incorporating family and friends into a client's individualized treatment plan. Not only is this place affordable, but it has the feel of beautiful high end mountain resort. The most important thing is the staff, local 12 step community and your peers help to build you up and show you life after addiction.

Never before have I ever worked with a group of individuals that truly care for the well being of every addict that walks through our doors. The staff is very committed and take great pride in sharing our own struggles, strengths and hope with every addict when ever needed. I have been blessed to work for Above it All and continue to see many addicts leave with a new outlook on life while living in recovery from their addictions.

5/2016 Bottom line. Above it all saved my life. My body and spirit were shutting down completely and the day I picked up the phone, and got there a few days later saved me from certain death. I was a severe alcoholic for many years and had gone through extremely tough times that led me to depend mentally and physically on it. I never thought I would make it through the withdrawal and most of all to feel back to what people call \"normal\" but as I\'m approaching my 1 year milestone this month May 16th, I cannot describe how finally after a decade of being an addict I am Free! Everything I could only dream of is coming true and is only getting better. I did it by taking one day at a time, not stressing over the things I cannot change, praying and making that initial scary step to call AIA which I owe my life to. To all those who thinks it\'s going to be too hard, are scared, maybe pushing it off, can\'t see any light in their lives.. Do not think, Do it. I promise it can and will get so much better. But only You can take that first step. Know you\'re not alone and God bless. And again forever, thank you Above it all for the amazing staff, great atmosphere, good times and for saving and getting my life back!

Some of the staff were great to talk to and relate to. They helped you through some of your issues. However, it was all about money and staff members not wanting to help the next person just wanting to fill the next bed. All in all, the atmosphere in which it is placed is great, and if you really want change you can get it, but you'll have to work hard

Wife signed up for 28 days to rehab off xanax. After 12 days she was okay and decided to go home against their wishes. They said if she left she is on her own with NO assistance with flight or taxi. Once she got home she was.totally fine but they still billed our insurance for 30,000 dollars. All they care about is the money. Bottom line!!!!! The first two days of my wife\'s rehab she was on a couch because they didn\'t have a bed for her. But.....they wanted her out there asap so they could make 30,000 for 12 days of rehab!

It is in a beutiful location, in the mountains in Lake Arrowhead, California. The clinical team is is unbelievable. It is gender specific. The groups were small. Individualized treatment plan. I relapsed after many years clean and sober and had been to many treatment programs. This program saved my life. My children have their mother back! I would recommend this program to anyone!!

Their ability to customize programs based on strengths of individuals was a strength of the facility. The inability to include more family time was a downfall. I feel this center is geared for those who arent completely lost. this is geared for people who want to have a normal life again.

I got pneumonia three weeks ago at this rehab and ended up in the hospital for 7 days. I still have not gotten back my personal items back including a laptop. I\'ver called and emailed a half dozen times. The lady who is supposed to be taking care of getting my stuff back has been completely unresponsive. I will update this if they ever get my stuff back to me.
