This place is a nightmare. Not because it's a rehab or whatever, it's because it's the worst possible place to go for recovery. The place is dirty and falling apart - any picture you see online is actually not a picture of the facility, I don't know where those pictures are from. The beds are disgusting. The carpet is ripped up and stained everywhere and people trip over it. It gets much worse.
There are no actual therapists or psychiatrists; staff may have taken an online course somewhere along the way. They are absolutely awful. You can tell they read some exercises in a book or online, but they don't really understand the point of them or why they're doing them. What makes it very, very disheartening, is that although the counselors have no idea what they're doing, they are extremely confident in themselves and they think they're the greatest thing since sliced bread, and that makes them cold and uninterested. DEFINITELY, DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE IF YOU HAVE ANY KIND OF MENTAL STRUGGLE - i.e., depression, anxiety, and definitely nothing any more serious than either of those, because not only do they not know how to handle it, but they flat out don't believe in it and they will not help you - they will ignore you and tell you to go away. Here's the kicker - when I have depression or anxiety attacks at home, I try to go for a run - you are NOT ALLOWED TO EXERCISE at this place, at least for a couple months - they claim it is because they are afraid you have a heart condition, but I think they don't want to feed people much. There was only one female counselor when I was there, she was the worst human being I've ever met. She will make you feel terrible about yourself and lie right to your face. If you're forced to go here, please, do whatever you can to avoid being assigned to the lady counselor.
So after the counselors' hours, which is basically always - then it's just the nurses. Some of the nurses are okay, but the best one was leaving as I was about finished there. He was a good guy, but yeah he's gone.
You're not allowed to contact your family. They drag you to AA and NA meetings with the SHADIEST people in the world down there in the weird ghetto that is DAVIE, FL. I came out much much worse than when I went in, but I was able to go somewhere else and start over. This was not only a waste of time, but a gigantic leap backward in which I lost a lot of faith in recovery and health professionals and it took me a long time to convince myself that this place really was just THAT bad, THAT much worse than anywhere else on the planet. Do not go. Please.
