The treatment was good & caring, but our son relapsed once he was out. He said their food was amazing & part of the reason he stayed. You can drag a horse to water, but without a desire to drink, it's not going to quench anybodys thirst.Setting in nature. Great food. They kept the family involved. It was expensive. Might have helped to have our son paying or have a partial work-to-stay to help pay for some of his rehab cost.

My exhusband provided a check for $15,900.00 for 1 MONTH to Serenity Knolls which check was used as the basis for reducing child & spousal support. That is a lot of money to pay for 1 month to pay and to actually believe that a long term drinker is \"cured\". The minute he got out - he drank. I have not been able to find out if a claim as filed with Blue Cross for reimbursement in 2014. The \"treatment\" did not work.

I spent 5 months at the Knolls between 2000 and 2002. I am very proud to be an alumni and I have been sober since then. Thank you for being there when I needed direction.

Great program for residents and their families. Focus is on recovery, education around alcoholism/addiction and breaking denial. A very nice and well maintained facility with amazing food.This is a mid price facility; it does not contract with any insurance companies but will work w/insurance for at least some reimbursement. Highly recommend...ALL staff (maintenance, chefs, counselors, admin and clinicians )are in recovery. Strong family program and aftercare program. Both family program and aftercare are lifetime benefits at no extra cost.

Helpful, knowledgeable people. I thought that the group meeting and their method of confrontation was interesting, perhaps too confrontational, difficult time, difficult.

This facility did care about my son, but he felt very pressured to stay beyond 28 days...When he stated he was not going to continue his stay, he noticed a distinct difference in how his counselors treated him...Nevertheless, my son thought it was a valuable experience....My son is a 46 year old very successful business man but the majority of the patients were young kids in their early 20's with both drug and alcohol problems, so he had some level of difficulty relating at first.

The care and concern from the counselors was phenomenal. though the price is expensive, the surroundings are beautiful and the food is gourmet! Counselors are the best around. caring, compassionate and all in recovery. The grounds are very inviting so a sense of calm begins quickly. The compassion of the counselors while I went through 2 weeks of withdrawal from opiates was astounding. Other clients assisted too. I had interaction with every single counselor-either in private session or group. They all are in recovery and they "get us" the food is also outstanding. You sign up for chores daily which really helps you to see how the place runs and also to get to know others quicker. I cannot say enough for SK. They offer a family program indefinitely as well as aftercare for the addict. I am a certified drug and alcohol counselor and if I could I would work there in an instant. I would just volunteer there as well but I live too far away. The owner ... himself runs groups as well as the aftercare. There is one in the city that he comes to sometimes. Otherwise the counselors run it so you continue to have contact with them.
