This was one of the biggest scams I've ever experienced. My son went there, he was treated with total disdain and contemp. I had numerous conversation with the camp's councilors, They were almost all incompetent and clueless. My son broke a rule by having his iPod with him. Music can and is very rehabilitative. When they discovered his IPod, they literally kicked him out, put his belongings in a trash bag and dumped him at the local McDonalds. I kid you not. Please DO NOT take a loved one to this facility. They care about one thing, getting as much money from you as they can. They hurt my son much more than they helped, We later found a real rehab center, not an incompetent institution like the camp, and my son has been sober for three years. The state should close this terrible place down.

I attended The Camp Recovery Center around nine months ago, and was entered into the minors facility. It goes without saying that I had not been looking forward to this month fight for my sobriety. But, nonetheless, I knew I needed to get some help and acceptance. I wanted to be surrounded by people that understood me, and what I was going through. Although I found that I was surrounded by under qualified staff who pushed onto me what my problems were, without asking me the questions. It seemed as though the entire staff, more so the case managers, assumed every client was the same. And we are not. No two people, no matter the similar tendencies, are the same. I entered knowing I was not an addict or alcoholic, and same goes for a lot of the kids in there. But on a daily basis I was told that I am indeed an addict. Even so, I pushed away their ignorance and listened to what they said to me. I paid attention during the meetings and tried to take their advice. Though I felt like I was taking advice from a staff of five year old children. I have to say that I have never been so disrespected by such a large group of people trying to "help" me. I had multiple occasions in which I was pulled aside and told that I was incorrect when speaking about events in my life that they assumed to be tragic and have a lasting impact on myself. All in all the staff were incompetent baboons. Now for the healthy and nutritious meals I was promised, I was highly disappointed. I have never eaten so much uncooked, freezer TV dinners in my life. They had no other options for gluten free patients etc. except for a few bruised bananas here and there. I most likely ate a total of 130 pbj sandwiches. I will never look at peanut butter the same way. Oh but the Mexican cooks were so nice and gave me extra cookies all of the time, much love for them. So the food and staff were not to my liking, 90% of the patients coming in and out also agreed with me, but I could look past all of that. Despite the days I spent crying from the way I had been treated, or the nights I went to bed hungry, I was going to try and give The Camp the benefit of the doubt. But no, there was no way I could ever find this rehab facility to be helpful to anyone. Even down to the mailing system. I had tried to send out multiple letters to my family that I almost never saw, and was told the mail was taken out that day. I had to wait two weeks until the letter I had placed in the bin on day one, to be sent out. Okay, alright I don't want to make this place out to be a real life hell, because it wasn't. I know how strict other rehab facilities are, but I had expected for the 14,000 dollars spent for my month stay, I would have received a better experience. What I want others to know is that if you or a loved one needs help, search elsewhere. Because this place is like a low-budget Hollywood movie filled with random shots of trees and rocks, underpaid and under qualified actors, and it smells like feet.

I loved the Camp, I had to come off Alcohol, Opiates, Barbs and pot. The nurses are the best! I would recommend the Camp to anyone who is struggling. You might not dig it when your going through it but you will look back with nothing but good memories. Where else can you get acupuncture and yoga?

My partner spent time at The Camp 20 years ago. Yup, it\'s rehab. No way to make it a walk in the park. But that stay did turn his life around. He passed from liver disease 4 years ago, but he was clean and sober for a long time. The Camp didn\'t make this happen--he chose to make this happen--but The Camp pointed him in the right direction. Thank you.

The Camp addresses the total needs of each individual. They rebuild people and set them up for success before they are released. I am happy to say that I finally have ALL the tools I need to stay clean and sober. 5 1/2 years....Going STRONG

My husband received recovery and made wonderful connections with people there. He has been sober almost ten years. I didn't stay there myself so i wouldn't know weaknesses I enjoyed the family group therapy session a lot. When I hear what others had been through our situation paled in comparison.

The area was too close to all familiar drug usage places in my life. Meetings were as long as you wanted to attend. I relapsed after 3 months but did not wish to re-enter the facility.

Nice location and good food. However, they do not push individuals to complete assignments or do inner work to support recovery once they leave. My boyfriend attended this facility and although he remained sober for the time that he was there, he did not leave the facility feeling he needed to change. He did not complete any of the assignments given to him and only met with his counselor twice the entire time he was there.

They taught me a new way of life. I was able to take the teachings and grow. Almost 17 years sober now. I would consider re-entering if I ever relapsed.

Everyone at The Camp was very kind and understanding. I am thankful for the tools and what I was given- a second chance and forgiveness by my family. I relapsed after 3 months. However, it was definitely worth every penny. I could not have gotten clean and sober without them!
