Testimonials

  • "I was referred to Recovery Centers of America during the time I was struggling. Their reception was warm and welcoming. Unfortunately, I've been to a lot of treatment centers. And compared to other ones I've been, this was a little bit more hospitable and a lot more friendly. It wasn't the same sterile kind of hospital room feel I got. Somebody came and picked me up at my house, which was amazing. And the guy who picked me up, I actually became quite close with while I was there. So literally from beginning to end of the experience, it was quite nice. I came in with a hatred towards a Higher Power and 12 Steps and was not even thinking about going towards the 12 Steps because recovery centers bases their motto after the 12 Steps, which I've come to find my way back to. Somebody gave me different versions of the 12 Steps, told me other ways to recovery and were very supportive of whatever direction recovery I was going. I wanted recovery, they didn't care what kind. They were willing to back me up on it."
  • "The staff at Recovery Centers of America were kind and courteous. I had great interactions with them. They were very informative and I liked the fact that their recovery support specialist were former addicts in the Recovery as well so it was easy to talk and to relate to them. I also liked that we did a patient-led Big Book Study every night. That was very useful. I'm 38 years old and I've been in addiction for 20 years. This is the first time in 20 years that I think I'm overcoming the addiction because of RCA. And because of the hard work I've been putting into going to meetings. Recovery really got it through our heads. There was a lot of education that I did that was very valuable."

Once I switched to PRISE program my experience was considerably better. Prior to PRISE, I spent 9 days on the 6th floor without a single meeting with my assigned therapist. Several requests later I met a separate therapist who explained day 1 criteria. My treatment had slipped through the cracks of RCA.

The care was excellent and got an amazing education about my addiction. They were able to answer all of my questions during my first visit to treatment. I felt that everything was all inclusive at this facility. The spirituality aspect of the 12 steps was broken down really well by the staff and the 12 step instructor.

The treatment experience takes place in a facility that takes a 5-star approach to maintenance and presentation. The facility overall, and especially patient rooms, is constantly maintained to create a safe, sanitary, and welcoming environment. The treatment provided utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating individual and group therapy, art and music therapy, wellness and dietary services, family services, case management, legal advocacy, and 12 step programming. This comprehensive approach fosters growth and insight in multiple aspects of the individual's life. 5-star quality care and service, multiple therapeutic modalities and offerings, holistic services, case management, alumni and follow up services, community engagement, patient community, 12 step education, spiritual services Given the facility's geographic location and neighborhood, it does not have a large amount of space outdoors for patients to utilize. That being said, the facility does have designated spaces for patients to get fresh air and provides routine outings (including equine therapy), which provide further opportunities for patients to get outside the building.
