Big mistake tried to get services there made several appointments that were cancelled one without them even notifying me i drove a half hour and no one was there. They were very careless with medical information and disrespectful to my kid told him to shut up when he asked a question.

I have worked with at least 3 different specialists & want to keep working with the 3rd because I can't deal with too many changes in Peer Star peer splints that I work with too often. I get used to working with someone & want to continue w\\that person for as long as possible.

J Grant Hormell MD
If you want to go to a great doctor who listens to your symptoms, cares about your well-being, and doesn't look at you as just a paycheck...then do not go to grant hormell. He has previously misdiagnosed me when I was very ill leading me to insist that something be done about it. In a very arrogant manner he suggested that I should be in the "prime of my life" and that my "virus" would just have to "take its course". After I insisted that something be done he begrudgingly wrote me a referral to a nose throat ear specialist. I went to see them and they immediately put me on antibiotics and steroids because, in their words, it was quite obvious that I was developing pneumonia and considering I had been dealing with the infection for 7 weeks at that point that my body was too weak to fight it off without help. That is one example, of many, which display the arrogant level of ignorance this doctor possesses.

Tips & Advices
  • Talk about specific consequences of their drinking.
  • Choose a time soon after the person experiences a drinking-related problem (missing a shift at work, for example).
  • Do not threaten, guilt, lecture, preach, or use negative labels.
  • Do not try to discuss alcoholism when the person is intoxicated.
Therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists who specialize in the condition can all diagnose and treat alcoholism. People with alcohol-related concerns can also consult their general practitioner, who will refer them to a specialist.
Detoxification is a medically supervised period of alcohol withdrawal to allow the body to purge itself. A doctor or treatment specialist closely monitors a patient to ensure the symptoms of withdrawal do not cause harm. Side effects of alcohol detoxification include:
  • Sweating
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Tremors
  • Nausea
  • Sleep issues
  • Paranoia or anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
The cost of addiction treatment varies depending on the type of facility, amenities offered, treatment provided, and size and length of the program. Detoxification ranges from $1,000 to $15,000. Inpatient facilities cost anywhere from $6,000 to $30,000 for a 30-day program and include detoxing. Outpatient programs can cost $500 per session.
Outpatient alcoholism treatment is a part-time form of rehabilitation. Patients continue their normal lives during the day and return to the treatment facility several times per week. Outpatient treatment is generally cheaper than inpatient and can be helpful for people with less severe addictions. Inpatient treatment programs require patients to stay at the facility 24/7 until the completion of the program. They provide a highly controlled environment for patients to overcome their addictions without the distractions or temptations of everyday life. These clinics provide round-the-clock medical care and often include hours of group and personal therapy. Inpatient programs are beneficial for people with severe addictions or those who have overdosed.
