Great learning on how to tackle your substance abuse. The staff there really felt like family. Recovery village really gave me a new outlook on life. The staff is very hands on down to the guys that run the show. Buck, Marla, Mindy and Anne. Nurses were amazing THEY listen and help shout out to Lacey, Michelle, Mary Ann and Alyssa. The people that actually make recovery village are the Behavioral techs Ryan, Jessi, Jessica, Tina, and lastly Ashley and Louie. This rehab differentiates itself from all the rehabs I've been to.

All of the clinicians were great but I must shout out Meghann, Emily, Rob, Cindy and Arno. these ones really made the whole experience feel like I was individually cared for and that there wasn’t just the overused general rhetoric of “stay sober”. The program took an approach that was all-encompassing; addiction psychology, trauma, stress, and the neurological perspective. They get to the root of the problem for each individual. Would recommend this place to anyone struggling with not just addiction, but additionally mental health and trauma. Pretty good food and the necessities were provided. I great atmosphere and a great place outside of group/therapy time, but also didnt overdue it on the amenities; which ultimately fosters and environment focused on the important stuff.

Recovery village was one of the best treatment places I’ve been ever (only my 2nd) but they really have a 3 prong approach and my time was amazing.
