I recently attended family visit for 3 days. I cannot even begin to express the welcome environment. The Counselors are amazing, very kind, and compassionate. I learned more about myself in 3 days than I would ever imagine. We were provided the opportunity to express ourse!ves, to learn. There were many tears, many laughs, and the bonding with other Families is an experience I will never forget. The schedule was rigorous, and I was able to spend real quality time with my Son. Thank you so much for the incredible experience! And Special Thanks to my Sons Counselors, and the Hosts. It truly was the most productive 3 days, and so well worth the time. The accommodations, the food, the staff, the residents were 5 plus stars!

This was the best of all the rehabs I attended over the years of my addiction. (Saranac Lake) The food was amazing and we were taught manners at the dinner table. We talked about our deepest issues in small group. The Spirituality is unmatched anywhere, and I'm not Catholic!!!! I had two very deep spiritual connections with my God while staying here and doing the work I was asked to. The year was 1997 it was winter we shoveled lots of snow and went to outside meetings in Lake Placid and other local areas even if it was snowing. The family week was amazing though I did not like many things said, I needed to hear it. I needed to hear about everything that was said to me. I took it all in. Though I did use again after leaving I soon became clean and have been so for many years with no desire to ever go back. I think it was this place that saved my life it is by far the only place I would ever send one of my family members to!

I was given a choice of where to get an evaluation as required for receiving cash help from dss. when I receive the notice in the mail St.Joes was circled in yellow high light pen that it was St Joes or no help from DSS,,There were three different that I could have chosen but DSS chose for me.The evaluation is BS they say in their advertising it only takes 2 or 3 days,, here's the BS,,in my case it took 5 weeks 45 minutes a session, During the evaluation it was ASSUMED that I was on probation ( I was 36 years ago) these " treatment professionals" had no clue if I was or wasn't. Next was getting put in a group with two DWI's and a hopeless alcoholic.My problem was using cannabis for relief of chronic arthritis pain ( Works for me) Then comes the pee tests, Positive at first then tapering off until the last one which was positive for PCP!!! Never touched the stuff!! well now we had a problem. Here they come! they marched in got into my face and said "you are going to rehab,, For what?? Smoking cannabis to manage arthritis symptoms. I immediately told them to F*** O** and out the door I went. Incidentally cannabis was legalized for recreational use in Colorado one month previously. Don't fall for the BS. If you sign the papers it's worse than being in jail, They control your every move when to eat when to sleep, what news you see ect. And finally I refuse them of useing me as a tool to screw over the insurance companies and or Medicaid.

We have a son in St.Josephs. On family visit time we came here to visit and have sessions with our son and all the counselors. Out of all the places we have been I must say this was the best one EVER. It was amazing to see all the work these counselors put into your loved ones. My son did not want to leave and hasn't yet but will remain about 2 more months. We were so pleases at the cleanliness and the food was great and trust me they get more food then they can eat. They made our stay very pleasant for the 3 days and nights we were there. We are more than pleased with what they have done and still doing for our son. We met amazing families there and we all connected so well. Felt like we knew each other and we will remain as a group for we felt we were family. Thank you St Joes for doing such an amazing thing for our loved ones. They truly care about everyone. The residents will say its very strict but I call it STRUCTURE something they don't have. Would recommend this place highly.

It was clean and the people were treated well. Relapses seem to be a common problem so treatment doesn't seem too effective. It largely just send like a fairly standard rehabilitation center.

Strengths include: long term program, counselors and staff that honestly care, strict, 12 step based, men/women separate, saved my life. However, there was not enough food, small rooms, bad beds. I've been to several different rehabs within the past 5 or so years and this was finally the one that got through to me. I have been to extremely nice facilities that were way more comfortable but comfort won't get you sober. Long term (at least 3 months) was also necessary for me to have any real change. 28 days is a great start but not nearly enough.

Clean, mix of modern and traditional treatments. Excellent people. As a non addicted family member of an alcoholic/addict - they are 1st rate at helping the family understand addictions and how to effectively deal with it. There is excellent follow up and after care for the actual St. Joe participant. Excellent facility. A life saver.

Strong bonds are made; there are no interactions made with the opposite sex. However, they do not have enough family input and it is very expensive. They have an excellent family weekend which is very intense ...it's a very good part of the program.

This facility provides care for teens. Strength lies with dual diagnosis cases. Since my son has been there it has changed their 'philosophy'. It used to be one strike you're out type of thing. Now they make allowances for relapse. My son had was considered a dual diagnosis case. He'd been to four types of hospitals/treatment centers in a three month period. Prior to his being discharged from a treatment center, he needed to be placed in a residential treatment facility equipped to treat a dual diagnostic 15 year old. We were turned away from treatment facilities across New York State. No one would take my son. Said he was too risky. He had even been turned down from the Villa early in his stay at the previous facility. Out of desperation, I called each and every center he was turned away from: hospitals, treatment facilities, and religious organization. Didn't matter. No one would take him. Said he was 'uncontrollable'. Be as it may, he needed help and we couldn't have him return to our home. Finally, I called St. Joseph's Villa. I was told previously they had no bed available. But I called again. They had an opening and were willing to take him on the condition they meet him first. So we drove the two hours to Rochester. We/he met with the director and she agreed to take him. A few days later he was admitted into the facility. It was life changing experience for him. Having been in several facilities prior, and due to his condition, he was overly medicated. Between the psychiatrist on staff at the Villa and therapy, his meds were reduced and monitored. He completed the six month program! Was able to return home again. We've have some struggles. Not with relapse. He's remained sober. He's doing extremely well. Will be graduating high school this year with his sister. Considering all he has been through, he was able to catch up and will graduate only a year later than he should have. He learned a lot of coping skills. Learned about his sobriety and is truly grateful for having been given another chance in life. If the director (retired since) had not given him a chance, I'm not sure my son would be with us today.

One counselor does as little as possible. Nothing has happened to her and her patients often leave before completing treatment out of anger and frustration. It is a good treatment program and does an adequate job, while not being overly expensive. It is getting more and more difficult to keep facilities open.; this one does good work with the resources it has.

Outstanding program...I have been to 7 different rehabs an am now clean for over 4 years. St. Joes was by far the best program I've ever seen. I relapsed afterwards but I carry the tools that I learned there in my recovery now. I would send my son or daughter there if they were in need of treatment.

I highly recommend this facility due to their extended 90 day program. I don't feel 28 days is enough. I also recommend this for their strict daily routines. It is difficult at the time but in retrospect is necessary to get people with addictions back on track.
