Overall the workers were polite and acted like they cared about your recovery.. but that is until something goes wrong. When I reported that several expensive shirts were gone along with my makeup- I was told it was my job to secure my things. I don\'t see how that is possible as you can\'t drag all of your stuff to every group. Don\'t forget to bring warm clothes in the colder months. The facility is in the mountains and it is cold. You have to stand outside for your meds and when it\'s cold and raining - it could be miserable. It was disappointing to learn that the trained counselors were the ones who facilitated the groups. The groups were run by 20 year old techs with no education. So there are plenty of areas for improvement. I would not return to this facility.

I just celebrated 26 years of sobriety. I went to Cove Forge in 1989, completed 28 days of treatment, and they sent me on the right track. I also had the opportunity to work there from the end of 1992 until 2000. Both experiences helped me enjoy the success I enjoy today.

AVOID! AVOID! AVOID at all costs!!! This is a place for court-ordered people! ... FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE! The staff there will NOT be on your side (some, not all.. This place is a step down from jail, nothing else. I CANNOT STRESS IT ENOUGH, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! You become a number and an inmate there, not a person.

I was very disappointed with cove forge treatment center. It came highly recommended to me for my son\'s treatment of benzo dependency and co existing disorders. My son was released after 10 days because the counselor said \" if I don\'t say he\'s completed treatment, he will walk\". Sorry, but I don\'t think the patient should have control over when they are released. Despite telling them that my son was dealing with other issues along with the benzo use, he never received individual therapy and only saw a Dr once when he first arrived. My son is off the benzos now but still dealing with what caused the misuse to begin with. Not really what I expected treatment to be about. Really thought they would try to deal with the root cause and co existing condition was never address.

I can\'t argue against the quality of treatment however, to say the facilities were substandard is an understatement. The claims about bedbugs and other infestations are sadly true. After only two days, I had rashes in 3 different spots. This is most likely because the detox and inpatient units are absolutely filthy to the point that I would put off setting foot into the bathroom until absolutely necessary. The nurses/doctors were all very nice, but the actual counsellors and staff treat you as though you\'re unduly taking up their time... As if this wasn\'t the job they signed up for. And finally, there\'s the meals... Absolutely disgusting. I lost more weight from not being able to eat the garbage that passes for food than I ever did from the drugs that put me in there. During detox, the \"kitchens\" provided contained nothing but two types of cereal and some already black bananas. So if you weren\'t able to eat your lunch because of the terrible taste, you had to starve til dinner. If you want the PERFECT example of what you have to look forward to, watch the old Kamp Krusty episode of The Simpsons. Nail on the head.

They have meetings and speakers. They hire recovering addicts. Counseling not the best. I was there for a two week program. I didn't have to go through detox. To few counselors and techs with the proper level of education. However I am 3 yrs clean and sober so some things were right.

Keeps you busy throughout the day. Staff un-educated on proper coaching to an addict. The program is what you make of it. You can not help those that do not want to help themselves!

The ability to get through to the patient and get them to understand the trigger points for their addiction. Let go of the shame and embarrassment of placing a family member in treatment. Put their needs first.

All in all it was a good stay and I have stayed clean. I will have 5 years May 15th 2015. Staff was compassionate and kind. However, sometimes one person did not know what the other person was doing.

The effect this place had on my life is worth 10 times whatever the cost. My overall experience was so positive, and it was rough going the first 4 days, when I left the rehab I felt that everyone over the age of 17, addict or not, would benefit from a month at this facility just to learn life skills.

The program changed hands. When I had 27 months sober, I went to work there for 7 1/2 years. It was more effective than I had imagined.

I was told it was an excellent rehab and it was closer to home than the others. Poor treatment by staff. Never spoke to a counselor. Beds/rooms were infested with bedbugs and ants. I missed meals and meetings because of their lack of communication. I was treated like a criminal, rather than someone with a disease. ... Then I get to my room, only to find ants and later, bed bugs in my room, on the mattress and in the sheets. I complained about it but nothing was done. I was told multiple times I couldn't use the phone even though in the beginning they promised two calls a day (15 minutes each). Even when I could use the phone, I was usually made to hang up before my time was up. After three days of detox, I was supposed to transfer to the rehab part of the facility, which they promised they had a bed for me. And it turns out they didn't. They didn't even have my name on a waiting list. I spoke to several staff members who told me they hadn't had any college education, and at least two of them were right out of high school. This is a horrible facility and I wouldn't recommend anyone attend it. You might as well go to jail for that treatment. At least they're consistent.

Got myself straight by using the tools they gave me there. They got me into counseling for aftercare treatment. I did relapse 2 weeks after.
