I found the solution to drugs and alcohol at Charleston Recovery Center. My life of misery and depression has become a life I wake up and look forward to living everyday. The addict on addict recovery is what made the difference for me. Everyone who works at the HOPE has lived the life of an addict and that convinced me that I was at the right spot.

This Rehab is very unique and very effective. It helped me understand the root of many of my problems. The program uses the shared experience of many us to understand where we have been and how to overcome our addictions. This is a place that many of the alumni come back to and see the people we have met and strengthen our recovery. I would recommend CRC to anyone who who is honestly serious about recovering from addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Charleston Recovery Center (Ashley Hope) gave me my life back. Prior to deciding where to go, I tried to research and check out as many facilities as I could. I thankfully picked Ashley Hope after reading the reviews and seeing the impact it had made in so many peoples lives. Although I had been in and out of AA for many years, something just hadn't clicked. Upon my arrival to the "HOPE", I immediately was accepted and welcomed with open arms. I was still in denial and had in my mind I would commit to 30 days at the most. After the first week, there was so much good already starting to happen, there no way I was leaving before my 90 days was up. I didn't know exactly what was going on but I didn't want it to stop. I was told the first day to forget EVERYTHING I thought I knew about AA and start following simple directions. I did what was asked and the miracle started to happen. The way the program and information was presented was like nothing I had ever heard of or experienced before. By doing what I was told, working the 12 steps of AA, and relying on my Higher Power, I have without a doubt found a new life of happiness, serenity, and a new design for living. Thank yout o the entire staff for giving me my life back.

Bottom line, I am now sober and haven't even had an urge to drink since finishing the Charleston Recovery Center's program. I used to be an all day drinker...sneaking around & hiding my drinking at work and at home. CRC obviously taught me about A.A. and the 12 steps, but I also learned more about myself than I every imagined and how to better face life on a daily basis. I discovered true happiness and inner peace. The staff and fellowship, which I now call family and the best of friends, are absolutely remarkable.

No one really ever goes to rehab on a win streak; I was no exception. Before coming into this program I was broken and completely hopeless. Thanks to the Charleston Recovery Center, I've been given hope; hope that there is a tomorrow;hope to be able work through my problems instead of dwelling on them to the point of drinking and using drugs. I never thought I would feel happiness again but I found it in the fellowship at the Charleston Recovery Center. and in the fun (yes, fun) in recovery. I never experienced serenity. Yet, through the honesty, open-mindedness and willingness I learned there, I can finally say that I'm on the road to peace. There's nothing more for which I could have asked.

Before coming to the Charleston Recovery Center I used opiates everyday, had no job, no car and no money. I resorted to stealing money to support my addiction. I lived in constant guilt and shame even attempting suicide to escape the life in which I was trapped. After completing the program I can honestly say I value my life. I have begun mending family relationships. I now have a full time job and look forward to what life has to offer. I couldn't have done it without the amazing fellowship I found at the Hope. The guys loved me until I learned to love myself. I have made many life-long friends. I wouldn't trade my experience at Charleston Recovery Center for anything. MY LIFE WAS SAVED.

I tried to quit drugs and alcohol on my own for a number of years with no success. I went to several treatment centers and did everything asked of me but sobriety remained elusive. Suffering and misery became my constant companions. I came to believe I had reached the point of no return; that I was beyond help. Then I found the Charleston Recovery Center. Within 90 days I was not only sober, I learned how to live again. I made lifelong friends, rediscovered my passions and repaired personal relationships. When I got to the program I was a broken shell of a person. When I left I was whole again.

Many of the people who have come through the Charleston Recovery Center consider it to be sacred ground. This is where actual recovery happens. This isn't a three month vacation from drugs and alcohol. That doesn't do us addicts any good. The program taught me that my problem isn't the substances I abuse. The problem is within myself. I was taught to reflect on my life carefully. At the same time, I also learned how to enjoy a sober life. The fellowship I found here is the greatest aspect of this program. I didn't spend five minutes here without laughter These are my people, this is my home and it always will be.

I owe my life to this place. I've been too multiple treatment centers that were astonishing more expensive than this place and got no where near the help and life tool's that I acquired here at Charleston Recovery Center, it is also the only treatment center where the staff and directors are so easily available and ready to help anytime day or night no one staff member every preaches from a spiritual mountain top, and I can guarantee you that I would not be alive today without the help of Charleston Recovery Center and there Director will do absolutely anything to help anyone and everyone. If you are lucky enough to find your way to the Hope then you hit the Jackpot my friend !!!!!!

I attended CRC’s 90 day program for alcohol addiction, and can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Going in, I thought a 90-Day program was excessive and not necessary. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In 3 months I learned more about myself than I thought possible, along with and the coping skills required to live a happy, healthy, and full life sober. Both the staff and residents were extremely well invested in my recovery and helped me get comfortable from the onset, and as time passed I was challenged to mature as a person and help other residents, which was a vital step in both my recovery and in reintegrating back into society. I’m indebted to the opportunity CRC gave me and would recommend it to anyone struggling with alcohol or drug addiction.

As an alcoholic, I constantly tried to stay sober on my own and resisted working the twelve steps. This always lead to a relapse. At Ashley Hope you immediately start working the steps when you enter treatment. I’ve spoken to many alcoholics who are x months sober and still on steps 1-3, procrastination was my worst enemy and could be theirs too. Hands down the best treatment center I’ve ever been to in terms of learning the Big Book and working the steps, the two most important aspects of staying sober.

I attended CRC for 81 days. Yes, I left 9 days before completing the program. The following is my experience. I’ll try to be brief and informative at the same time. Treatment Effectiveness: Well, like anywhere, you’ve got to want it. AA is the name of the game at CRC. The director(s) and staff all wholeheartedly believe in it. That’s actually a good thing. All of the staff members are recovering addicts/alcoholics, which adds a certain validity to everything they say. They’ve all “been there, done that,” so to speak. With that said, AA itself is somewhat of a controversial program, in that there’s no scientific evidence that it actually works, although there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who swear by it. The bottom line is ... if you really REALLY want to get sober, AA will help guide you there, and CRC will help guide you toward a Ph.D. in AA. Accommodations: Here’s where it gets a little rough. If you’ve looked into the pricing already and asked yourself “how is it so cheap?,” well, it’s because of the facility. The main house (where all the “magic” happens) is pretty run down. I mean, it’s not like being a POW or anything, but there is certainly much to be desired. For some, it’s fine. For others, it’s scary. I suppose it depends on your background and what you’re used to. Meals: So ... most of the food is donated by local grocery stores, food banks, etc. Cool. No problem with that. Everyone in recovery has chores to do. As for meals, they designate one or two people to cook breakfast and dinner every day. Breakfast is easy. Eggs and sausage. Dinner, however, is a different story, so they designate one resident woman and one resident man to cook on alternating nights. I’ve got to say, the dinners were usually pretty great. The people they designate to cook seem to care about the “product” they’re serving, and their creativity (because of limited, donated stuff) always shines through. The pantry is ALWAYS full of food, and residents can eat whatever they want, but it isn’t always the healthiest. Mostly snack food, but hey, you’re there to get sober, not to be on a strict diet, amiright? Synopsis: Wanna get sober? Really, REALLY wanna get sober? You can do it here. It’s gonna suck, but you can do it. You won’t always have chef-prepared meals, you will have to follow some really dumb rules, you won’t always get a hot shower, and you probably won’t get sober ... unless YOU want it.

My daughter was here for 4 months in 2016. She liked it and seemed to be successful. Yet, one week after leaving, she relapsed and almost died. The food is donated and the house is pretty run down. My biggest complaint was the director. He has another rehab place in Florida and he would take groups down there frequently. But he would take them to a casino for hours, which is not a good environment for an addict. As a child of a gambling addict, it wasn’t a healthy activity for alcoholics and/or drug addicts. This place needs a major overhaul. Website is very misleading, too. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

Finding fault in others seems to be a family tradition. She fails to mention the many broadway shows, theme parks, sky dives, and other (Lion Country Safari) group activities the residents enjoyed in Charleston and Florida. She references the Seminole Hard Rock Casino where we saw several concerts, ex. Paul Anka , Mama Mia, Phantom of the Opera, and enjoyed New Year’s Eve. We never allowed the residents to risk any money, but to enjoy sober fun and the delicious meals. Recovered is what the book says and it allows us to go anywhere a free man or woman can go. Addiction is cunning and our hope is that her daughter will accept the Solution and give it away to others who need it so badly.

I researched several regional facilities to combat my alcohol addiction and chose Charleston Recovery Center. The explanation was thorough in regards to their program of recovery, pricing, and residential guidelines. I was given a tour of the main house & loved the homey, cozy feel of both the house and residents. Everyone was so welcoming and accepting! The house is clean & kept up with. While the program circles around the traditional "12 Steps", it's very accommodating to all walks of life which made me feel accepted being a Buddhist. Its affordability is only a small bonus compared to the peace & sobriety I've achieved through coming here.

I was skeptical before coming into this program because I expected a place that was run by people who didn’t understand addiction! I quickly found out that I was very wrong! The program is run and owned by addicts who have been through many ups and downs like myself! We all help one another in many different ways and share each other’s experiences! I never thought the day would come that I could deal with my personal stresses of life without getting drunk but that day has come!!!

When I arrived at the center I was at the end of my rope. My addiction to opiates at 52 years of age was my master. I had lost faith in myself and everyone else.I have read some of the bad reviews and would like to just say this.Through my 90 day stay I learned to live again. I learned to love again.Most of all I found that the only way to stay sober and to live a life filled with true joy was to do Gods will in my life instead of my own.I am sober almost two years and have nothing but love and gratitude for the staff .If you want to get sober instead of go on vacation their door is open.

Only myself and God knows the hopelessness, futility and uselessness I felt inside myself before coming into Charleston Recovery Center. I thought death was the only option from where my drug addiction had taken me. Only by the grace of God did I get to CRC and was given the real solution to not only my drug addiction but the solution to the problems inside myself that tomorrow July 13th, 2016 I will be 5 months sober for the first time since I was 13 years old. Charleston Recovery Center and the people here have loved me until I could love myself and then pay it forward to the next just as hopeless addict or alcoholic who comes into our home. This is not only a recovery center with alcoholics and addicts but these people have become my family and this house is now my home.

It\'s a joke. You are paying $6000 to go to 6-8 AA meetings a day. They don\'t prepare you for when you get out. And when you do, if you don\'t continue to drink their kool-aid, they will pretend as though you never existed. Find somewhere else. The director is too self involved.

Strong Recovery, Comfortable Family Setting, Knowledgeable Staff, Hands on Recovery, Genuine Care and Loving Staff Hello Everybody, I could not have gotten to where I am without Charleston Recovery Center. I arrived there broken - physically, mentally and spiritually. I was told by the director that I could not get sober on my own power and that I had to follow directions. I was also told that I could not talk about all the bad things people had done to me, but I could talk about the bad things I had done to other people. Needless to say that shut me up so I could receive direction. I went through the twelve steps of this program as quickly but as thoroughly as possible. Near the end of my three months of continuous recovery two things happened, I became aware that the obsession to drink or use drugs had been removed and if I continued to follow directions I will never have to use again. To say CRC saved my life would be an understatement. It also gave me a reason to live and that I am eternally grateful. If you or someone you love suffers from the illness of addiction I recommend CRC to change your life. I wouldn't be alive today without this program.

Knowledgeable staff. Strong recovery. Community spirit. On January 5th, 2016, I arrived at Charleston Recovery Center a broken and hopeless shell of a person. I had been struggling with addiction for over 15 years. For the past 6 years I had been on and off the streets; in and out of hospitals, jails, and rehabs. I was absolutely miserable with my life, but saw no way out. 2 weeks before coming to CRC I was arrested again and upon my release from jail, my parents contacted me to see if I would like to try treatment again. I was out of options and praying for death on a daily basis so, I said yes. It was by far the best decision I have ever made. In the beginning I was skeptical because I didn't think that the 12 steps of AA would work for me, but I was willing to try. The disease of alcoholism was finally explained to me in a way that made sense. The women and men became my family and CRC my home. I understood why I hadn't been able to stay sober in the past and I was surrounded by people who were just like me. I was no longer alone and these people had a solution. As I sit writing this I have almost 6 months clean and sober. That's a miracle for someone who couldn't go 5 hours without drugs or a drink before. I completed the program almost 2 months ago and chose to stay on in order to give back. I have become useful again and finally feel as though I have a purpose in life, to help others. I have seen countless lives saved and families restored since I've been here. The things that I have learned at CRC have changed my life. I have learned how to live sober. I have learned how to have fun in sobriety. I have learned how to be a daughter that my parents deserve, a friend that can be trusted, and a productive member of society. But the greatest thing I've learned is that there is a solution to my problem and I have been given the ability to share that solution with the next broken soul that God places in my life.

Lays down a strong foundation for AA based recovery, gives intensive aid to newcomer addicts and alcoholics in the crucial stages of recovery. Coming to Charleston Recovery Center was one of the best decisions if not the best decision I've ever made. This place without question saved my life. I was blown away by the once in a lifetime experiences that were offered through this program. I'm eternally grateful for this place. As a once hopeless addict I strongly suggest Charleston Recovery Center to any alcoholic or addict suffering from this disease.

Hello everybody I’m a recovered alcoholic/addict who just celebrated four years of being clean, sober and happy after 21 years of alcohol/drug abuse. I could not have gotten to where I am without Charleston Recovery Center. I arrived there broken- physically mentally and spiritually. I was told by the director that I could not get sober on my own power and that I had to follow directions. I was also told that I could not talk about all the bad things people had done to me, but I could talk about the bad things I had done to other people. Needless to say that shut me up so I could receive direction. I went through the 12 Steps of this program as quickly but as thoroughly as possible. Near the end of my 3 months of continuous recovery, two things happened. I became aware that the obsession to drink or use drugs had been taken away from me and if I continue to follow directions I will never have to use again. To say CRC saved my life would be an understatement, it also gave me a reason to live and for that I am eternally grateful. If you or someone you love suffers from the illness of addiction I recommend CRC to change your life. I wouldn’t be alive today without this place.

I entered the Charleston Recovery Center 90 day program a broken alcoholic and for all the wrong reasons. I came to escape legal and marital issues and hopefully stay sober for a period of time. However the program stressed a spiritual approach to solving our problems and helping others. The atmosphere is most like family and I learned that my alcoholism was but the symptom of numerous underlying issues. Through intensive step work and helping others, this program has been the most helpful and enduring ever I\'ve encountered. The holistic approach shows residents a solution to ALL their problems. I am truly grateful to the director and the entire staff and I am proud to extend my most enthusiastic recommendation!

A close family member of mine went to the Charleston Recovery Center and it has helped her tremendously. I can\'t tell you how happy I am about that. When I was a volunteer in a Christian Ministry in my 20\'s I worked with some alcoholics who were seeking recovery. I learned first hand how difficult it is for them to recover and how difficult it is to help them. They need a new environment, with people who understand what they\'re dealing with, and can help them find their way. It takes a commitment on the part of the person who is recovering, and a support group who will encourage them, teach them new life skills, listen to them, challenge them and care about them. That\'s what my family member found at the Charleston Recovery Center. The staff are caring and really want to help each participant. People are at different stages in their lives, ranging from denial to total commitment to doing what it takes to lead a healthy, happy life. I think the commitment to stay for the whole 90 day program and to apply yourself to the program completely is a very important factor in recovery. The facilities aren\'t luxurious, but that\'s one of the reasons this center is more affordable than most. I think the outdoor setting and the community spirit are very pleasant.

I\'m very thankful for all the help my daughter-law received from your program. I was very impressed when I attended one of the meetings and especially seeing the rapport the director had with those attending. I think it\'s vital and wonderful that he\'s able to take the things he\'s been through and recovered from and is now helping others find their freedom. Those who give it their all will be free and able to help others find their freedom too. I highly recommend this program.

This center has been a blessing to my friends and their marriage. When the time came for recovery the people at this home were the family they never knew they had. My wife and I visited the house during a concert put on for the guests while our friend was in recovery. The atmosphere was so family oriented and those in the program seemed as if they had found rest and focus. I had never been to a rehab facility before but this was not what I expected, it reminded me of summer camp but with a community working towards an eternal goal. I cannot thank this place enough, I know my friends are so blessed by this place. I hope they continue their work for decades to come, the world needs more facilities like this one.

This place is amazing. It for addicts and alcoholics run by alcoholics and addicts. This program and house work. The staff here have been through the program as residents and are staying longer to help out. This place saved my life and decided to stay on and help out because it\'s my job in this program to give away what I so freely got given to me. This staff here is great the food here is great, it\'s cooked by the residents who want to help out. This program here is done exactly the way bill intended it to be back in the 30\'s and that\'s why it works so well. I love every single person here and have made some of the best friends I have ever had in my whole life. This place is very professional and everyone here is so awesome. If you are thinking about going into treatment I would highly recommend coming by and checking this place out it saved my life and if could save your life too.

To all those brothers and sisters that are still suffering: This place changed my life! I was in the grips of a drug and Heroine addiction for 25 years and could not imagine living any kind of life without drugs. I had managed to destroy all facets of my life, wife, kids, home, work, money, friends, other family members, the list goes on and on. If there was any part of my life that had any merit, I brought it crashing down around myself with disregard for anyone or anything around me. As of 6/26/15 I\'ve been living a new life of happiness, joyousness, freedom, and serenity. The desire/obsession to use ANYTHING has been completely removed, no really, it\'s as if it never existed! I have ceased fighting everything and have found true happiness that I chased for a quarter of a century by chemical means to no avail. This place WORKS! It really does! TRY IT!!! It will be the first good and best decision that you\'ve ever made in your life!!!\'n

While I was there just about everyone got sick, sure think it was all the mold and dust. Staff was very attentive the first couple of days,after that I was just another addict basically left to fend for myself. Attended meetings throughout the day....lots of time sitting around or watching tv. Not a very organized staff. Turnover was high people coming and going all the time. I did get the feeling it\'s all about the money. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Please do your research . Very contrived environment benefiting the people /person in charge financially.

When I was looking for a solution for my wife\'s alcoholism I was skeptical of the Charleston Recovery Center because of some reviews on this site and my initial impression of the house. After speaking with one of their directors at length my worries began to lift. I could tell that she had a very similar experience to ours and was now 4yrs sober - and happy. 90 days later I couldn\'t be happier with the decision to take my wife here. Not only is she sober, she is soo much healthier in mind, body and spirit. She\'s like a different person! Regarding the facilities - this is not a clinical setting. They have multiple homes where the residents live and study the AA \"Big Book\". There are not doctors that monitor patients around the clock. This was concerning to me at first, but I now realize that their staff has seen everything under the sun and is more than capable of helping new residents through their detox and into recovery, because they have all been there before too. Under their guidance, my wife did visit the doctor on a couple of occasions to verify her health, receive medicine...etc. and she always came back with a positive review. Also, Roper Hospital is only minutes away in the event of an emergency. Now that I am more familiar with the treatment program of Alcoholics Anonymous I understand that helping others get sober is one of the primary ways that the alcoholic will stay sober and this facility is that principle in action. While they do not offer \"luxury\" facilities, by any means, they are safe and adequate and the primary focus is truly on recovery for everyone that attends. If finding a luxury facility is a main priority you may be better suited elsewhere. The facilities are typical homes and the residents are tasked with chores to clean and maintain the ares where they live, work and play. It is not perfect, but it is adequate. From what I can tell, if the attendee is willing and ready to get sober this place will work for them. For me that is the most important part. They have a sand volleyball court at the main house, & location in Florida with a pool where they take residents as a treat to \"get away\", they reward those who work hard by taking them to broadway shows, movies, the beach, to dinner...etc. all in an effort to re-integrate them back into society and learn how to have fun while being sober. It\'s not all fun and games by any means, but judging by my wife\'s stories and some pictures on their Facebook page it seems like they are trying to make the best of a difficult situation. It definitely changed my preconceptions of what \"rehab\" is like. While this place is not for everyone, looking back I am very pleased with my decision to send my wife here and I think it is a great, affordable option for anyone else who is truly ready to get sober. She is also happier than she ever thought she could be and recommends it as well!

Before coming into Charleston Recovery Center I was hopeless, broken, beaten, homeless, and felt worthless. I never thought I\'d be able to stay sober for 15 minutes let alone 8 months. I was convinced I was going to die a heroin addict and I became okay with that. I thought there was no hope for me. After being in and out of 6 other treatment centers I found this one and I\'m beyond grateful I did. I came into this place 30 pounds underweight, desperate, and in bad shape. I was tired of hurting everyone around me and was tired of living the life I was living. Slowly but surely I started getting healthy again and started learning about this program and I started feeling like maybe there was hope for me. I saw the program working in others lives and that was enough for me to make my beginning. This program has worked for me in every aspect possible...the staff is amazing, caring, and loving. I instantly felt accepted by everyone once I walked in Charleston Recovery\'s door. I have my life back. Since I\'ve gotten sober I\'ve had experiences that I never thought was possible..I\'ve traveled, I\'ve loved, I\'ve laughed, and most of all I\'ve felt happiness. Residents and staff understand me and I understand them and going through my whole life feeling like no one could ever understand me..that was a big deal. Through this program I\'ve gotten my family back, I have life long friends, I have a sense of belonging. Wonderful things have come about that I could of never dream of.

My name is Jennifer. In 2014 I was a hopeless, dying alcoholic. It was not by lack of trying, family support, love, money, lack of will power, fortitude or morals. Prior to 2014 I had everything in life I had set out to accomplish. I attended a Division1 college on a full athletic scholarship. I was honored for sportsmanship, MVP, Captain of a winning varsity program. I was one of the first female athletes to be a contributing member of a sorority and top 6 in the University Homecoming Pageant. Upon graduation, I moved to NYC where I lived and worked for 20 years.... I had much success both socially and financially. I had an award winning career in Real Estate, married a wonderful man and on paper was the epitome of success and happiness, That was not my reality...... I was suffering from alcoholic torture which I endured for 20 years. In 2014 after losing what I thought was everything and after a stint in a \"famous $35,000.00\" a month rehab where I learned to stay out of bars and not drink just for today, I went on an death spiral of selfish drinking, un- employability and path of destruction effecting everyone whose life I touched. But for the grace of God, my family found the Charleston Recovery Center and the 12 Step program at the Ashley Hope House. When I first arrived at Ashley Hope/CRC I was willing to do anything, except a spiritual program. But a spiritual based, literal 12 Step Program is what I needed and what I got.... I had admitted over and over I was powerless over alcohol and resigned to the fact that I would never be able to drink again, but how... I had lived that way for 20 years and in my mind had only recently lost the power of choice in drink...I still believed that living without alcohol was not as bad as death, there was no point in living... I had lost everything already. But the staff and the residents of CRC all just like me, hopeless alcoholics and addicts showed me I had a 3 part illness- they showed me specifically, through a literal interpretation of the Big Book how to work a 12 Step Program, how to teach a 12 step program and how to LIVE without alcohol or drugs. In the year and a half I have been affiliated with CRC I have experienced not only more that 12 months of sobriety for the first time in 25 years but I live each day happier, with the knowledge and tools to share my strength and hope with other alcoholics and addicts..... This is a life infinitely more useful and gratifying than any I have known in my prior existence. I have my family back, have made amends to those I hurt during my active addiction and today I know a new freedom, peace and sense of well being with the knowledge that as long as I keep enlarging my spiritual life and helping others I am recovered. If you suffer from alcoholic torture or drug addiction like I did, or if you have a loved one who is dying needlessly like I was, please know there is a solution,, It is Charleston Recovery Center. I write this today to express my gratitude and to pay forward my debt to the people who so generously shared the solution with me.

Do not send your loved ones or yourself here! Speaking as an alumni, the information advertised on the website is false and misleading. This place is a joke. The house is very poorly maintained. There is mold in the air vents, cockroaches in the bedrooms and outside of the house, bed bugs infestations have occurred several times in the past 2 years. People get kicked out and replaced on almost a daily basis. The money is not being spent on food for the residents, maintaining the house, buying things to accommodate the residents (blankets, towels, hygiene supplies, medicine, etc.). Accommodations are either donated or self purchased. Where is the money going???

We strongly discourage any mind altering drugs- we don't believe in methadone or other "clinical or synthetic solutions" . We are Spiritually based. I have not seen one cockroach inside or outside in years and our pest control company has done a magnificent job in maintaining a pest free environment. This has been well documented by government agency inspections. No one is perfect, of course, and we will address any problem that might arise in the future as best we can. As much as we disagree with some of the negative reviews we understand that our opinion is subjective. But this one is false. .

I agree 100% with Kristina. My loved one and I chose this place based on the false information that they provide family care. It is quite the opposite. Their approach at times is more like indoctrination. They surround themselves with people who are overly loyal and potentially brainwashed to some degree. The facility is overcrowded and not well cared for. The director is very unsettling. The cost is 2 thousand dollars, and it is not the right choice for a family since these conditions are risky. There was almost daily turnover of people leaving and being replaced. It gave you he feeling that it may just be about the money. Different things work for different people but I wouldn\'t make that decision agin to go there. The potential for things to get worse due to poor choice of conduct is too great.
