Testimonials

I was a heroin addict... By going to inpatient treatment, it allowed me to be at a place where I was there strictly to detox. And honestly, psychologically it actually makes it easier on your brain because, you know... I'm not in my neighborhood, I'm not with my dealers, I'm not with the people I can get these drugs from. It's wonderful to actually be off the drugs now and have a wonderful relationship with my family. Now that I'm in recovery and sober, I'm so thankful that I took that step and I wish I would've taken it sooner."

This is the worst facility ever stay clear from it. They only care about how much money they can make. I called up looking for a place to detox from medications. They told me they would help me wean off the medication. I did not see a doctor or counselor or therapist until I was there for five days and had detoxed on my own. The counselors, doctors and therapist at this facility are very dishonest. I don�t think there�s enough room from here to list all of the facilities weaknesses. Please review my notes from above. They have set them self up so they�re not accountable. They always give me the runaround and you never can get to a counselor or manager.

Laguna saved my life! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. The staff is world class.. totally up to date on latest scientific findings on addiction AND they are kind, compassionate and understanding. Not a day goes by that I don't have something I learned there come up in sobriety and I am able to make good decisions.. which keeps me happy, joyous and free. If a person does all the work at Laguna, they can totally reshape their patterns of thinking.. which is not just a successful recipe for staying sober, but also a successful life. The only people who didn't like Laguna were people who wanted to be in a day spa like facility and Laguna is not that. It's clean and comfortable, but there isn't equine therapy and massage. But, I am convinced from conversations with many repeat rehab customers while there, that the education at Laguna is the best in the country. I am just so glad I landed there, as I don't ever plan to return to any rehab ever.

Hello Jamle. I am sorry about your experience here at Laguna Treatment Hospital, our staff and medical team take pride in what they do when working with patients. There were/are also ways to address your concerns through the grievance process or requesting to meet with someone from management. I see that that process was not used in regards to this issue. We wish you well on your journey through recovery and hope you find peace and happiness. Thank you
