My experience was horrible with this place. I wrote a check for 10 grand at check in after my boyfriend and I met with one of the counselors there. She explained everything, gave us a tour and showed us where my boyfriend would be staying. That evening at home I began getting harassing and threatening messages from my boyfriends dealer out of the blue. Realizing my bf must have been in contact w him from this place I called up there bc he was not supposed to have a phone. I was asked to not call so ok, no problem. I get it. The staff must focus on the clients. Next thing I know less than 36 hours later, a therapist and an aide are driving my boyfriend back to my house followed by his parents. No one has told me anything about him coming home so I begin to get upset because part of him remaining in the house was him agreeing to help. The therapist is telling me I need to calm down and that she could lose her job for doing this. She tells me that she’s driving him home bc he has way too much to worry about at home to be in rehab right now and that I need to give him a chance. I’m sorry, what? Is that how rehab works? Fast forward to when I call the facility the next day and they tell me it was HIS decision to leave and therefore my money is non-refundable. The evening before your therapist who drove him home told me it was her decision. In fact, did you know your staff drove him home? Something is not adding up so I ask to speak to the director but for days he is unavailable and I go round and round with this place trying to get a refund. Each time they attempt to put me back in touch with the woman who initially convinced my bf to go in- I reckon she is crisis outreach but she can’t help me. And of course due to privacy laws, I am unable to access medical records and my bf is not reliable for the truth, so I reported the situation to NBC 5 Consumer Investigates and called Enterhealth back and let them know. The administrator was immediately available to talk with me that time and I received all but 2 grand back. Looking back, I’d have gone somewhere else given our experience at check in but I was desperate for some help. Instinct told me my bf would play that therapist like a fiddle & he obviously did. The entire experience still makes zero sense to me and I have no explanation from them.

I have waited until I had a year of sobriety before I wrote a review of Enterhealth (I was there for 90 days January-April 2018). I had my last drink on January 20, 2018, I am still sober and could not have done it without Enterhealth. Allow me to introduce myself, I’m a 52 year old male, professional, hold an advanced degree, married, two kids in college and I also was a drinker for 35 plus years, with last 6 to extreme excess. When I arrived at Enterhealth my health was failing, my wife had moved out, my kids were not speaking to me, and I was on the verge of losing my job. Now, let me say this up front, yes, Enterhealth is expensive. But in my view, well worth the cost. Enterhealth was the first place to recognize that I actually have a mental disorder (bipolar) and had been way over medicating myself with alcohol. Simply not drinking was not going to solve the problem. Prior to going to Enterhealth, I had been to two other facilities where no attention was given to anything beyond stopping the addiction. Both failed miserably. Enterhealth’s dual diagnosis treatment program first got my alcoholism under control and then was able to treat my underlying mental disorder. The doctors worked carefully with me to monitor and adjust my medication on a weekly basis. The councilors were very caring and extremely helpful in uncovering the root cause behind my drinking. The nurses are fabulous (just don’t knock on the window). The techs were great and the food was pretty darn good also. The facilities are nice (not extravagant) and I appreciated that I had a separate room. The only real downside was that any extra items (massage, haircut, acupuncture, etc.) were on an al la cart system and not included in your daily rate. Overall, I would, and have, recommend Enterhealth. If you want sobriety, are willing to work and follow their treatment plan, you have a chance. BTW, my wife and I are back together, my kids are speaking to me, my health is much improved and I kept my job.

On 4/7/18, I celebrated my 9th birthday in recovery. I went to three other treatment centers prior to Enterhealth and did not have the skills to cope with my addiction. Enterhealth's approach changed everything for me. I wanted to live again and finally felt worthy of love and happiness. Enterhealth and the loving support of my family saved my life!

Patient last year, treatment has been succesful for 9mo so far. I had some serious issues with one physician and complained. I notice that person is gone now. Overall recommend if the patient has the resources. I have noticed that, in general patients who fail to maintain sobriety want to blame the treatment facility.

Please beware of entering treatment at Enterhealth. I was inpatient at the Ranch. My therapist led me to believe I was in a safe / talk about anything environment and manipulated me into sharing stories about how my prior using had affected my parenting. As soon as she heard something that she believed fell under her "mandated reporting", she immediately filed it. DO NOT trust anyone there. They do not have your best interest at heart. There are many other reputable rehab facilities with strong ethical history.

Do not go to this place! Expensive and they will pit you between family members to try to keep you there. If they know you have money then they will try to keep you there. The management does not care. Only Nursing and Techs work hard, if not for them then this place would crumble. The food is awful. Expect to have cereal bars and rotten fruit for snacks. Clients also hook up and not given consequences, so it becomes disruptive to recovery. Group is good though. Boring on weekends with NO activities. Stinky, old furniture to sit on. Contraband, including drugs are easily smuggled in. All it takes is a phone call to a dealer and they can easily drop off stuff at the gate. No security in place on a ranch. Sometimes psychotic episodes from clients with no security to handle this. Techs are the ones who truly keep this place going. But not enough techs to help out. Medications, particularly Serequel is pushed on the clients. The list of bad goes on and on. Don't waste your valuable time or money. Choose a better place that offers activities and management that have true recovery backgrounds. This ace is owned by a marketing company so you know the commercials are fake. Stay away from Enterhealth please!

My family member was cared for at Enterhealth for 6 weeks. The 6 weeks he was there he was cared for and treated with the utmost satisfaction. He continues to use what he has learned there to combat daily challenges and life in itself. The doctors and team leaders were all different in personalities, but all had the same goal! The patient and family 100%. The paperwork and schedule that was given to the family members was organized and exact. When leaving your loved one you feel scared, sad and unsure but the staff at Enterhealth made you feel very comfortable and hopeful. When you called to check in or talk with your loved one, the staff was extremely welcoming and cheerful. I will always be thankful to this facility and their staff. The best place around.

I am a licensed chemical dependency counselor and refer to Enterhealth. Although there are many facilities and options in the area, if someone has means my first referral is Enterhealth because I know they will get the most thorough and comprehensive medical care in a beautiful setting. I often see people go to treatment, and the underlying cause or mental health aspect is neglected. At Enterhealth there is a multidisciplinary approach and completely unique treatment plan. I've had clients come back with a better understanding of their mental health, solid psychiatric regimen and often times EMDR and thorough trauma treatment.

Enterhealth Ranch (ER) is not an effective or affordable treatment facility for substance abuse... I wonder why it doesn't work when you tell a drug addict something to the effect in Oh those 12 step programs don't work. What you need is more drugs...here pay extra for these 'science-based' drugs from us, you know, to help you get off, um drugs. They will fix your brain! Oh and even though you say you are not depressed we KNOW you really are, so here are more drugs for you to also take. And since you can't sleep, here is a drug for that Additionally, while our son was there several staff members were fired for unprofessional behavior. Their "Science-based" approach did not work. Our Enterhealth Ranch experience was like flushing $18,000 down the toilet. Sadly, we paid extra to have ER file our insurance for us in addition to the money we had to pay up front and in full. After 8 months, numerous calls, numerous rounds of emails we still have not seen a dime... and of course it is all the insurance company's fault. But they pressured us to pay them extra to handle the insurance for us (so we wouldn't have to worry about it in this tough time). I feel bitter every time I see their commercial and I think "I wonder how many 30 second spots our $18,000 paid for." To rub salt in the wound, they even charged us extra to eat lunch on family day... and it was inedible. Wow. Just wow. We turned to Enterhealth Ranch in desperation. It was a mistake made in the heat of the moment. There are better, more effective treatment facilities where actual recovery can be achieved. And who also happen to take insurance like a normal, professional treatment provider should.

Dear PF, We are very sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Since we specialize in dual diagnosis treatment at Enterhealth, the vast majority of our patients do require psychiatric medications to help treat underlying causes of their addiction at the same time they are in therapy. Were you able to discuss your feelings prior to leaving the Ranch? If you would like to have a further discussion, please feel free to contact me at dsnider@enterhealth.com. Please remember that no attempt at helping your son is ever wasted. Continue to care for him and don't neglect your own health; he needs you to be there for him. Donna

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!! This place is an absolute joke. If you have a loved one in need, please look elsewhere for a real program that can help. The only concern they have is taking your money.... Access to counselors is limited and group sessions are ineffective. Facilities are worn down, unclean, and the food is awful. Staff is rude and do not treat patients with confidentiality.

Great
My adult son just celebrated 15 months of sobriety after three weeks of inpatient rehab and two months of outpatient. rehab at Enterhealth. The combination of meds for depression and anxiety which he still takes, individual and group therapy, and the education about addiction and coping skills worked for him. I notice their website now has a section on payment options so they may have corrected the problem we had. I felt that their business practices led one to believe that insurance would cover most of the cost and it hardly covered anything. We didn\'t research it at the time because we were in a crisis and emotionally vulnerable which I felt in retrospect that Enterhealth personnel took advantage of . Still, the program worked for my son and he is still committed to his sobriety (alcohol was his issue). Our family is grateful that when our son was ready to make a change that HE found Enterhealth and conscientiously took advantage of everything Enterhealth offered both at the Ranch and outpatient therapy.

Dear JK, We appreciate your review. That you felt your treatment was tailored for you is great news since we try very hard to treat each patient in the manner that offer them the best chance at a successful recovery. Because of this individualization our prices are more than other treatment centers, but we believe you do get what you pay for. Sorry about the internet access; being located on a ranch sometimes inhibits our service. Take care of yourself and keep in touch, please! Donna

Enterhealth was the best thing that ever happened to me. My therapist worked hard and diligently every day. The staff is beyond friendly and hard working. They always go out of their way to help you, day or night, 24/7. Every one of the staff, from the nurses and techs to the therapists always treat you kindly. I gained more knowledge than I ever thought I would. I met so many wonderful people and now have cultivated many amazing relationships. The rooms were comfortable and relaxing. If I could stay forever I would, but I am now prepared to face the world because of Enterhealth.

For such success it took YOU working twice as hard as the therapists, doctors, nurses and techs. Your desire to be healthy, your interest in reaching out to your peers and your willingness to put in the effort to no longer use -- that is what is needed to recover from addiction. We are so proud of you and count on you continuing to work hard taking care of yourself! Donna

I have significant concerns regarding this facility. Specifically they push a treatment that used to be called prometa; they are now calling it GABASYNC. This is not FDA approved and was developed by a junk bond trader. Please seek out information regarding this, addictions magazine has stated this is not a recommended protocol and there is only their testing that says it is effective. ... Positives, nice facility- they say luxury rehab but in the winter most amenities not available. The food is not bad, some friendly staff, and the availability of medication assisted treatment. If you are recovering from opiates this is a beneficial aspect of treatment. As others have said, if you cannot pay you will be discharged. It is a private facility. Negatives, very expensive, full neuropsych testing done (at an additional $2700) while still in detox, again in my humble opinion one cannot distinguish between substance induced and pre existing conditions only 11 days since last use of cannabis. The neuropsychologist acknowledged this but the therapist didn't have a solid understanding of this in my opinion. When I asked for further clarification she said that those were questions for the neuropsychologist....Despite the cost for the neuropsych evaluation several aspects of the report were incorrect... In addition, key tests were incomplete or invalidated. It did not provide a complete picture. Another concern was that everyone seems to be put on seroquel during detox to help regulate sleeping; we were informed of this only after our son had been given seroquel for several days. The research I found indicates that seroquel can actually increase craving and relapse rates in marijuana recovery. Our son was there for marijuana. ... This facility I do not recommend. You are not getting your moneys worth at this facility. It is a glorified babysitting service that uses medication inappropriately and pushes unwarranted treatment for financial gain. I will contact the FDA regarding the use of GABASYNC as it is not shown to be effective by others in the field.

I've been to EnterHealth four times (unfortunately) and while they claim to have new age "brain healing" drugs, they didn't work for me. I even tried their $3000 injections. Last time I went there for Detox about 3 months ago, the staff, food and living conditions had deteriorated dramatically! The Light was out in my bathroom, the AC/Heating unit was so loud I couldn't sleep, I could feel the springs from the mattress poking me, and the meds they were giving me didn't help. All the good doctors, nurses and some of the other staff had left, including the Chef! My first meal was given to me with visibly scorched potatoes and was inedible. (They used to have great food). ... I've attended other treatment facilities after which I achieved years of sobriety, but I would definitely not recommend EnterHealth anymore. They are more into trying to promote their services to the wealthy pushing the discovery of "addiction healing drugs" that there is no support for or evidence that they work. Oh, they also over-billed me....
