Treatment Center Philosophy

The Golden Rule believes that recovery is only possible when individuals learn how to accept and embrace their true selves. Founded in 1996, the residential rehab helps women do just that by offering substance abuse treatment in a safe and structured setting. Through counseling, addiction education, 12-Step meetings and life skills practice, clients are able to uncover the underlying issues contributing to substance abuse. Women learn how to be accountable, productive and happy without using alcohol or drugs.

BEWARE This place is a scam. We paid money for a relative to go who in addition to addiction has BPD. We chose The Golden Rule because they advertised having psychiatrists and trained staff on hand. However they do not! They kicked her out for BPD symptoms, which a trained professional should know how to deal with and treat. Not only that, but people coming off drugs are known to have issues, that's the whole point of what they're being paid for. They refused to refund money specifically because this is their business model.

I found exactly what I needed at the Golden Rule. It wasn’t easy but neither is life. Don’t go there if you don’t want structure and rules. It helped me to change vibe been clean and sober since 4/21/2012.

HORRIBLE!! Please, please do not send a loved one here unless you want them to spend most of their time cleaning a school and a church which they can’t attend. Also the food here is awful, considering they only serve starches and fried foods along with food purchased from a food pantry that is out of date. Your loved one will have a “small meal” of ramen noodles and a pb&j/meat sandwich every night along with a little Debbie cake for “snack”. All the girls live in constant fear of upsetting. The smallest thing such as signing a thank you card can result in losIng your phone call for the week. The attitude here is to please them, not to focus on recovery. There is little room for self growth. It is all about surviving and keeping sane until you can graduate. PLEASE DO NOT SEND A LOVED ONE HERE

They don't offer any type of counselling that every addict needs. They only about money and not really helping anyone.

This place is a joke. You only get one full meal a day and that is lunch. Breakfast is always cereal, toast, or grits, and dinner is always a sandwich and chips. There is no individual counseling. The treatment team does ONE group a week, if they "feel like it." The patients lead their own groups and meetings. Waste of time and money.

If you are truly ready to get better this is the place to do it! All staff and directors are former addicts or have family members that were addicts! This is a long term facility (9months) and I believe it takes that long to get better.
