Pasadena Recovery Center
The Most Hazardous Place to go For Recovery--Offers No Recovery.Pasadena Recovery Center, aka Pasadena Recovery Center LLC. Is an absolutely dangerous place to go yourself or send a loved one or even just an acquaintance.It's true that they do lie and steal and cheat youboutbof vast sums of cash, even if you do have insurance that covers the stay. The owners and staff illegally require you to leave a " deposit" that " will be returned as soon as they your insurance is verified."Bull. Plain and simple, they lie. Ask any family or parent that has paid that deposit. They will tell you that they never got their deposit back. Better yet, just google Oasadena Recovery Center complaints. Then you' ll know not to ever go their. There are far too many good, reputable addiction centers here in California, for every budget. Therefore, do not be fooled into going to this hazardous waste dump.As for cleanliness? The health department has been called on this place owlish over 417 complaints within 7 months. There is frequently fecal matter and urine in the patient showers( some addicts have major mental health issues-- and for money, the owners accept anone who is willing to pay to get rid of their damaged family members for a while). Such hazardous waste is never cleaned up by the housekeeping or other staff. Often times, a kind hearted patient will clean it, because what else can be done when you need to take a shower?As for the food, all the food is donated(another tactic for the owners to cut corners and profit more) and most times that food is stale and expired past its due date. I now this for fact, because I have helped the volunteers unload the trucks after returning from the food banks and I have many times seen the expired dates n the food packages. Ther have been at least 49 cases of major food poisoning and hospitalization reported at this place. The staff: ex- addicts that sometimes are sill addicts and still have addict issues and mistreat the patients and even inappropriate,y touch them and sexually harass them. But if you are staying there and are a victim and try to call the police to report it, they will turn off the phones and lock the doors. Yes, seriously. Then the staff and owners will call the police and claim that you tried to call them only because you have " mental issues" . And that's how they sweep it all under the carpet.Enter this place at your own risk. Remember that you and your loved ones have choices as to where to go for treatment. So think wisely. As for the phony promises they initially make tomgetnyou in the doors and sign their contract? Just that: phony promises , lies, and manipulation. All the people and all the complaints on the net rent cannot be wrong.

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.
