St. Christopher's Addiction Wellness Center
I went to st.chris for an addiction problem and this was my first time in any kind of treatment. I am not a kid however most of the patients are, usually 18-20 and the patients around me were horrible to live with for 30days. It seemed to me that much of the staffs energy was spent reprimanding bad behavior. anyone considering st.christophers also must understand that this is a private business and the most important aspect of your treatment, in their eyes, is financial. I can understand this mentality to an extent, however I think they take it too far. For example, each and every patient is referred to their extended stay program with can last up to 12 months and if someone is attending the program due to court requirements the court follows the recommendation of the addiction counselor. Very few people can set every aspect of their life down for 12 months and spend $75,000 for treatment. Now the truth is, all rehabs have the same issues that St.chris deals with however St.Chris's has an ace up their sleeve that makes them the best rehab in the area by a long shot. Very simply they hired a 5 star chef that puts out stellar food every day. Eating was such an important aspect of my steint in captivity. As you can imagine it's very depressing, boring and sobering in rehab. The excitement of eating the next freshly prepared meal actually kept me engaged in my treatment. The chefs name is Kieth Bayard and not only can he cook, he is a hell of a counselor and an expert in recovery (he's been there, done that, got the t-shirt). His knowledge of AA trumps that of even the most senior counselors. In closing, I would recommend St.Christophers to my friends and family however if the food sucked it would be just another rehab with nothing special.

Wal-Mart SuperCenter
I've shopped at this WalMart from the day they opened their doors for business over a decade ago. While I'll admit there have been a few less than friendly employees in all that time, there have been far, far more friendly and helpful ones. (Sadly, any time you have a gathering of human beings, you will have some that are rotten apples. It's just a fact of life.) Six years back, when my mother first became ill and had to be hospitalized, I barely made it inside before about a half dozen employees had rushed over to ask what was wrong since she wasn't with me! (There are still a few who remember her and will say how much they miss her when they see me!) I have shopped other WalMarts in the area and always been disappointed with not only the customer service but the selection of merchandise compared to this one. This one also seems to have a lot more mark downs of random merchandise than others I've shopped at which is truly appreciated on a fixed income. A couple of times, I've ended up returning items for a refund and never had any problems doing so. All in all, I'd highly recommend this WalMart for those who may live half-way between two and not sure which to choose.

St. Christopher's Addiction Wellness Center
St. Christopher's saved my son's life. It is a safe, well staffed facility to help in getting your loved one on the right track. My son agreeing to seek treatment was a step in the right direction but choosing the best facility from the many choices was a very hard decision. The staff and the therapists are caring and well trained. My son was admitted due to alcohol and drug abuse, but ultimately they found these issues to be the result of an underlying long term mental health problem. He was treated for these issues as well as receiving treatment for the substance abuse. He is a much happier and well adjusted person now. He spent two months at the facility. St, Chris is not perfect, but for my son's needs it was wonderful. I recommend STC especially if your loved one has dual issues, mental as well as addiction. Be careful as many of the facilities we checked out focus on just the addiction issues and do not address the mental health issues that could be the underlying problem.

Criminal Justice Solutions
I had one of the worst experiences with the justice system ever here. I was supposed to get evaluated after completing courses for my simple marijuana possession charge. When I got there my counselor left for a smoke break even tho he doesn't smoke. I was left to fill out a test with an office clerk who had never evaluated anyone before. After I turned my test in I thought he would at least talk to me then but he just told me I had to come back and pay more money. They just work in tandem with the da's office to get more money out of u. In all I payed $200 to enroll in the program,$300 for the program, $285 to take my evaluation test and drug test, and another 300 to come back after this latest experience for who knows what cause I wasn't informed. I also saw that I could have taken the test online but no one informed me of that either. Bottom line id just get a lawyer before spending this type of money. And if ur arrested u still have to pay for the arrest record expungement.

St. Christopher's Addiction Wellness Center
We were in a major crisis with our son and faced what we thought to be a life or death situation. We did multiple searches on the internet, spoke to addiction experts and our physician and all kept saying St. Christophers. We spoke with Stephen in admissions and he was very helpful. He explained all available options to us to go to St. Christopher's. I have to admit the out of pocket costs were shocking! We took a chance and followed all recommendations of the staff. We learned so much about our son's illness, we learned what our part was in keeping him sick, and we all learned what we needed to do to get better. I think St. Christophers has changed us forever!! We are a functional family for the first time ever and we owe it all to St. Christophers

Townsend
This is a good program. I loved everything but my doctor. She sucked. Dr. Susan Julius. She wouldnt give me her undivided attention for our appointments. Constantly put words in my mouth, because she wasn't paying attention. I never relapsed during the program. She had no trust in me when I was a a+ attendee. She also likes to push drugs on people. One of the newcomers who also had her, went to the hospital after taking all the drugs she pushed on him, the next day! STAY AWAY FROM DOCTOR SUSAN JULIUS, LOOK UP HER RECORD, IT'S INSANE!

Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
