Great
This is a long term program. They do not baby the clients. It is Christian based. If you are serious about recovery this program works. They do not communicate with families that is part of the recovery process. It is explained very clearly up front. Don't except them to keep you updated as a family member. The clients are adults not children. This is a tough love program and not for the weak. Even if you don't agree with the methods and the rules it works. Are they perfect. No. The clients are taken care of. The councelors are called to do this. It is their life 24/7.

I placed my son at this facility in hopes that they could help him find his way. My son knew that this was his way home. He lasted 4 weeks. They never called to let his family know this. I have been trying to get in touch with someone... to hear their version of what exactly happened. I did not research this place and I should have.

My first impression of this place was a great one. I spoke with one woman for a good 45 minutes about getting my qualifier into their program. The very next day she did not even remember speaking to me. She did not remember mine or my qualifiers name. That should have been my first sign. My next sign should have been them not mentioning the $300 expense account until the day before we dropped our qualifier off. My 3rd sign should have been the horrible attitude that she and another man portrayed when we dropped our qualifier off. They lied to our qualifier the entire time that they were there... Telling them that they were giving us weekly updates. We didn\'t receive a single update the entire time. They lied to our qualifier stating that we had called stating that he had called us... We never spoke with him nor did we say that called us. Their policy is that they kick them out for phone calls... We never received said phone calls. My qualifier was severely depressed and asked for professional guidance.. They gave him an 18 year old sponsor who wouldn\'t get out of his laptop long enough to listen. It took them 36 hours to reassign him someone else. My mom is hearing impaired and legally deaf. I asked if there were alternative types of al-anon meetings and they wouldn't accommodate. I feel that they never even gave him a chance. I feel as if all that they are concerned about is money and not the well being of the qualifier. SEVERAL people were dropped off at the quick trip with all of their belongings in the 4 weeks that my qualifier was there.

Like the other reviewer said, the clients work and pay almost all they earn to the program. On top of all the fees, clients must pay a 10% \"tithe\" to the program. After two years it they are luck they will have saved $2000. There is no one-on-one counseling to help clients get to the root cause of their addiction - only weekly AA meetings and a class here or there. They aren\'t licensed by the state because \"we don\'t want anyone telling us what we can and can\'t do\". Most of the food is donated to the program and is not nutritionally sound. There have recent health concerns there like septic tanks backing up and black mold. All were covered up and clients were told to lie about them if they were questioned.

This place is a joke they treat their men like poorly the only counseling you get is one day a meeting a week their counselor or so call counselor. they put you on a job where you only make $9 an hour you go in the hole every single week because of charging you more than much you even make they put you in a house a three bedroom house with each other and men treat you badly they\'re mean to you and the ridiculous they speak down to you it\'s a very ugly place.

My son has been sober for 32 months, and I credit DRRs program for this. DRR is not for the faint of heart - for addicts OR their families. Addicts are responsible for their own expenses, and other than paying the registration fee, families are NOT responsible for treatment costs. The addicts sign an agreement to pay back family members IN FULL for the registration fee. (and they DO!) Besides addiction treatment, DRR provides other life skill training such as financial accountability. They help our addicts manage the myriad legal problems that seem to go hand in hand with drug addiction. Our addicts are held accountable for their actions and the staff has very high expectations of their clients. Rehab includes counseling, 12 step work, spiritual guidance, etc. Families are encouraged to attend weekly Al-Anon family group meetings, indeed, our ability to communicate or see our addicts depends on it. Do not despair! Al-Anon Family Group meetings are worth their weight in gold. They help families become stronger and more functional because for once, we are taking care of ourselves and not worrying about our addicts. Additionally, families are expected to attend Family Education Days - about 2 or 3 times per year. DRR is not fancy or sophisticated in their facility or in their approach. They are, however, exceptionally serious in their work and their standards. Staff are NO-NONSENSE with addicts AND the families! If your addict is interested in recovery, encourage him to contact DRR! Don\'t do it for him! That\'s not how it works.

This program is highly effective. Not to much marketing out there about the program but it is a Christian based very productive program.
