I have been to multiple other treatment facilities but none like this. The Farnum center helps you change your way of thinking about the world and not just focusing on your drug use.

I think the Curriculum is good and solely 3P based. There are 12 steps incorporated but Farnum does not make us write our wrongs. The staff do the best they can with what they have. Its up to you weather you have the patience or not- being short staffed.

The staff are understanding and helpful. They accommodate to the best of the ability with keeping peers safe and comfortable. There is a positive energy. If there is a negative person that person is uplifted. Another phone would be helpful on the weekends would be good. Doing a community group or going out would be helpful. Whether it be the library or a local school, to get out would make it a better program. Getting out of the building. The mind is not tested if we are here. Being out once a week or so would be helpful.

The whole 3p concept is mind blowing. It is a totally different approach than the traditional one. It should be expanded and taught in more places. This is the only thing I would change. Farnum should reach out to more places to make them aware of this. The Farnum staff are amazing. Off the Charts awesome!! They care about the clients and go out of their way to help people. Aftercare is on top of their stuff!! As this is the most important part. Farnum is not lacking in this department. !

I went for an initial interview and was told I would have a bed in two to three weeks that was July 17. I called every week for 3 weeks and was told not to call anymore they would call me. It is now August 23rd and I have heard nothing from anyone from there. A yes or no would have been nice so I could search other obstacles. Basically I have come to the conclusion the center is a money making center and does not care about helping people. Shame shame on this agency

The Farnum center has already helped me so much so far, there way of teaching and applying different ways of looking at addiction to substances and addictive behaviors is different, community and individually focused, they use unique but easy techniques to cope with these situations and also apply any other assistance you need as much as they can, including groups on anger, depresstion and anxiety management, Aftercare plan ( they will set you up private meetings with a aftercare coordinator to find what fits best for you) Treatment plan goals and objectives, Codependency, Self Confidence, Relapse Prevention, Health Realization and more. You get your own counselor and the staff is always there for guidance. Very community focused we all help each other, the synergy here is remarkable.

The Farnum Center in my opinion is teaching a philosophy, that all mankind should live there life by. We are taught what we call the three principles. My take on this it's the scientific approach to Buddhism. After years of having the 12 steps pushed down my throat and never really getting it,Farnum has giving me hope for a life of peace and free from suffering. And to close I know longer have this stigma of being a drug addict,because I'm free from the suffering from my past. Thank you to everybody who has help me get the the enlightenment I was seeking.

The Farnum Center and the 3 Principles is your ticket to living a healthy sober life.

Every place will have a few small issues to deal with but my only major complaint is meds in the residential program. You really need to stay on top of reordering yourself and even getting aspirin can be a major deal, so you really need to make sure when your running low on something you get it ordered at least a few days prior and stay on top of any new meds.

this is my second time at farnum. I came back here because I learned a lot the first time. this facility has helped me greatly. I decided to come here for a second time once I started to mess up because it worked so well for me the first time. the way they teach you to look at yourself is very beneficial for me .the work we do here is mainly a process of learning from yourself. its not about the twelve steps. which I like a lot. there is a twelve step meeting every night. but the majority of the work is learning how to have proper positive thoughts.by learning about my thought patterns I have been able to change a lot of my actions. I really enjoy working on myself by learning from myself. this is a great facility. I enjoy the councilors. and the building is nice. the food is really good also. over all I think this is a great place for anyone who wants to better them selves. I have enjoyed my recovery here.

We only meditated twice after having requested it numerous times throughout my stay. There is a small, limited gym but more physical activity is needs for patients overcoming drug addiction with extremely elevated levels of anxiety. Important to have helpful outlets for it. Food was good, most of the staff was awesome. The only thing that I was seriously displeased with was the fact that we had to keep track of our own medication even though the staff administered them, we were expected to keep track of and put in a needs form order for our own. I almost left one night because I was still detoxing and at the height of my withdrawl still on the residential side and I didn't have any medication all day and night so I was just miserable. Head warning to this! I liked learning of a new approach with 3 Principles, it became a little redundant. Having been to one other treatment facility before, I will be able to use both the 12steps and this knowledge together. Strict rules, but I understand why. Thank you Farnum Center

My experience at Farnum Center has so far been a positive one. As I have never been to a rehab before this I have no reference point for a comparison but I believe the treatment is effective so far. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the meals are nutritious and tasty. Most of the staff are helpful and friendly.

The Farnum Center is not a 12 Step based Rehab. How ever I think the 3 Principles that they teach go hand in hand with the 12 Steps. The 3 Principles really opens your mind to a new way of thinking. You maybe practicing the 3 Principles and be unaware your all ready using them in your life. Just like to Note They do have AA meetings. My over all Experience was good, I can defiantly say that out of the four rehabs I have gone to this is the best one by far. With any Rehab there are always something that needs some work, but the facility is clean, comfortable beds. the food is decent, and they let you drink coffee with Caffeine. I think it is important to tell you a few tips you should be aware of to help your transition in. 1.) Medication: You will need a med order for everything, even over the counter medication. If you do not have one they will not give you your meds. So all I had to do was go to my PCP and get something that said THE name of the medication The Dose Amount And the Instructions when, how much. and how to take it for all medication including over the counter. They let you smoke about every hour And the Staff are very caring.\ You'll be happy you came

Most importantly, the Farnum center made me think. It helped me reflect on the choices I have made, and told me I wasn't defined by those choices. It aided me in gaining the insight that I have the power over my thoughts and feelings and also how I react to them. I am not broken, I was just a little lost in the dark. They gave me a torch to light my way through life.

I like that they had places for clients to go do things other than drugs. Exercise /work out room. There is also an outside space which is enclosed for smokers to smoke without being back into the streets, as the facility is on a main street in the city. Thing I didn't like: Location. This facility is on a main street in a big city, where drugs are constantly walking up and down. Leads to lots of temptation to quit rehab and get high. I think the Farnum Center is great. It serves as an inpatient program for addicts as well as an outpatient Suboxone clinic. This works wonders and is just what more places need.

My son attended the detox program and did well. We provided paperwork while he was there so he could return to work after discharge. After more than a week of discharge, they have still not completed paperwork so now he is sitting at home and not working. An addict with time on their hands is not a good mix. So disappointing.

Staff is well versed on addiction treatment and recovery. They prepare you for aftercare as well as a design for relapse prevention. Affordability and lack of state funded beds were weaknesses. When I went I was angry, withdrawn, and broken. I was ready to run halfway through my 28 day stay. The counselors and the director took me aside and got me to stay somehow, they saved my life. I am now a Recovery Coach and am a sophomore in college studying addiction counseling. Treatment works.

Strengths: Finances, the building and it's location. Weaknesses: Executive Staff invalidating behavior and disrespect of Staff. Staff are not supported and I know the quality and genuine nature of clinical support is inadequete. I enjoyed working with the clients, some of my co-workers. The working environment was toxic without healthy leadership.

I attended the Farnum Center in 2015. The accommodations are excellent and so are the meals. The staff is very well educated and the classes are very in formative. You are given all the tools you need to recover from your addiction. The consolers are always there for you if you should need any help at all. I have been an alcoholic most of my adult life and thanks to the Farnum Center I now live a sober and happy life. I highly recommend the Farnum Center.

I attended in 2014. And I experienced none of what everyone else complained about. The staff is well educated and knowledgeable in addiction treatment. They are more than willing to help you in any way that they can. They all go way beyond their means and schedule to help anyone. One of only a few places that utilizes the three principles where the past is irrelevant. This was very helpful to me and I know a lot of people that have been successful after treatment. It all depends on the addict or alcoholic if they want to stay sober. With what they taught me I have been able to stay sober. I would recommend this place to anyone. Like someone mentioned, addicts have been through enough why go through more. This place is fantastic. If you go and keep an open mind and listen you will be fine, it's all on you.

I was at the Farnum center in 2012 and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. The staff are incompetent and many are not properly educated on addiction counseling... They have horrific group sessions where your are forced to call out your mistakes in front of the whole house. It is degrading and mortifying. As addicts, we punish ourselves enough for our mistakes, we don't need to feel like we are being punished in recovery as it is a time of healing and sensitivity. I was very successful at the Friendship House in Bethlehem NH.
