There are so many things wrong with this place. I will write a summary: 1. Shutting people off from the real world. Yes, some people need to sever ties to get clean but the fact is, having people hide from their life does not aid in recovery. This program puts people in an intensive 3 month bubble and then essentially thrown out in the real world without proper tools and coping mechanisms in place because they've been isolated. Most people I know relapsed immediately. 2. Forcing people to get on food stamps to supplement their budget while the higher ups there are driving Mercedes. It's lowering and degrading. If you do not get on food stamps, you're forced to pay on top of your stay money for food. 3. People getting sober are going to have issues. Taking them to a psychiatrist and medicating them when they haven't been clean for a week is silly.. You should not have 40 women in line for "meds" every night. 4. Nasty staff. There's not much else to say on that. Most of the staff, counselors, food staff and medical staff are rude and lower the tone dramatically. 5. Treating women like children. Making them write essays when a person left the light on. I know they say it's for "discipline" and establishing rules, but ... really. Come on. Summary. The only way you will get clean is on your own and with the help of a supportive group - whether it be 12 step, friends or family. This program will not get you clean. The people that do stay clean after this program already made the conscientious choice to stay clean, and the Wayside House has very little to do with that.

I have been sober for a year now. I give a lot of credit to D. She definitely gave us the skills and knowledge to stay sober. I looked forward to her class. The food was not always good as in kale wraps and not very much meat.lots of noodles and rice. When it was good we ran out of food before residents got their food. Happened a lot and felt staff should not be allowed to be in line to eat and get to be in line before residents. The weekend cook was stealing all the bakery goods donated by bureaus. She would get a food cart several trips to her van. We would watch her leave maybe a cake or just enough for residents to argue over for snack. I was not helped with finding housing my counselor would not let me miss my job in the kitchen when I was going to be viewing a place so missed out on it. I had a counselor who gave you a half hour window to meet with her clients a couple days a week and I was usually working in the kitchen during the half hour or her door would be closed and we were not allowed to knock. Stupid. A lot of people get several chances allowed to come back after being gone usingso disheartening for residents working hard to stay straight.

Strict with everyone/fair, staff recognize behaviors very quickly & address it. Let you earn trust and reward you with weekends & overnights passes Counselor was fresh out of college and was never an addict. Found it difficult to connect. Almost felt she w's judgmental. It is worth your time if you're ready to sober up

Many strengths. They have the clients earn points to use toward purchases which is neat. They try working on life skills. They allow cell phones at times. Like many co-occurring facilities, Wayside does not treat mental health issues well. My daughter was discharged for the very reason that got her there, her behavior. I believe behavioral problems need to be treated and not get rid of the client who is in need of help. It is about impossible to talk with any staff other than the social worker during day hours and not on weekends.

My family member choose to stay. I would not have. It was not welcoming to family. I was not contacted by my family members counselor, even though there was a release. No messages returned from any staff. No messages passed along to family from client phone. If you like or need a lock down, structured facility this is for you.
