I give their holistic Pain Recovery Program 5 stars, but their entire program has improved dramatically in the 11 years they have been in business. Las Vegas Recovery Center has a new CEO, Johanna O'flaherty who formerly worked for Betty Ford Center. Her focus is on clinical excellence and treating trauma along side addiction. They continue to make updates to their facility, have an extremely dedicated staff, are involved in their community and are committed to an intimate healing setting and providing long-term support for their clients through their alumni association.Their 10 year old chronic pain treatment program has grown and improved substantially. They are one of, if not he only, pain program(s) to publish their program outcome averages on their website here: http://lasvegasrecovery.com/Chronic-Pain-Treatment/evidence-that-our-chronic-pain-treatment-program-works.All programs are still led by Mel Pohl. He is well known and respected throughout the field of addiction. I know many people who have thanked him personally. He has gained a lot of respect from forward thinking medical experts for maintaining his stance that opiates are not a cure for chronic pain and there are better ways to treat chronic pain than treating opiates. Anyone who knows anything about chronic pain treatment knows the field is gravitating towards programs like the one he created a decade ago.While Las Vegas Recovery Center is a highly qualified addiction treatment facility, there simply is no more comprehensive holistic chronic pain treatment program out there. If you have chronic pain and would like to stop taking prescription medication and want to get your life back, this is where you should go. If you are close to Las Vegas, NV and want the best addiction treatment doctor in the state, there is noone more qualified than Mel Pohl in Las Vegas.

“If you are having the same struggles as I was and you have looked everywhere else for answers and found no escape, let me say this – if you are considering this as an option, I would say get the process started as fast as you can. I’ve never known a sober adult life, but now that I do, I feel like I’m living for the first time. … it’s the unicorn treatment that people want to tell us ‘hopeless drunks’ isn’t out there… just like I did, you lucked out and found it. It’s what I searched for and dreamed about.”-Start Fresh patient Eric M.
