CELLAND GILCHRIST (GIL)
CEO

Gil’s feature from “Experts on what Recovery Looks and Feels Like,” from Christopher Kennedy Lawford’s 2013 bestseller, “Recover to Live: Kick Any Habit, Manage Any Addiction” (p. 292). “From Gil Gilchrist, Chief Executive Officer, New Beginnings at Waverly: Recovery is a lot like enlightenment—most of the people who have excellent recovery, you wouldn’t even know until you spent time with them. They are human beings first and recovering people second. The recovery ideology does not define them, but it’s an integral part of their life. Recovery is not a feeling. It is a state of awareness and reali¬zation. You realize that you are free. No matter how good or bad things get, the fundamental realization is that you are free.”

It was clean. Most of the staff were kind. Lack of any free time to take a nap or rest. It was hard to sleep at night when you had people coming in every hour to check to make sure you were in your room. There was one staff member that gave me the creeps and made me want to start drinking all over again. After 8 years he still creeps me out in my dreams.

The place is like a minimum security jail. It's full of patients who want out of jail and who are not serious. More than that, they are disruptive. The counselors are burned out and disrespectful.

I gratefully got to stay @ the woman's' lodge out in the country. The mens' facility is right on the lake. I appreciated that I never felt "locked up." All of the staff were pretty genuine to all of us. Lastly, the food was amazing! 1st day with counselor..."Fact: You will gain some weight & you will look 10 times healthier when you do!" She was right. The facilities are awesome! The road trips to NA/AA meetings were a great experience. There was a variety of things mixed into the daily routine/schedule.

The location, staff and alumni were all wonderful. This place helped me start to learn how to be sober. A downfall of the facility were its speakers.

Good program. Has a great alumni association. Good food and they feed you a lot. Very laid back environment outside of group rooms. It is on a lake so the scenery is nice. It was a positive community environment. However, there were some stuck up staff, mostly the higher up staff and counselors that have been there for a while. In addition, there was no contact with the female side.

My boyfriend was in New Beginning's. He lasted one day until he started to have anxiety attacks...I don't blame him for not wanting to stay there.
