Yes Ms.Tasha helped me with learning who I am and how to handle things on day-to-day basis. But I was kicked out a transitional after completing the entire program And graduating I lived in the house for five months. Because I switched jobs I did not quit my job but my ex employer told them I did because she helps employ St Judes clients. I should’ve told them the second I swapped but I didn’t but I think that’s ridiculous. They’re trying to teach you how to be grown-up and be independent. I was paying my rent I was doing everything I Was supposed to do. UAs ,work, rent, curfews. I was kicked out because the lady of the women’s housing and I did not click. It’s not fair bacause I did nothing wrong except for not click with the new what ever you want to call her/ house lady which I’m not mention her name. I am still sober, but that is only on my part. Besides Miss Tasha. The rest of them are rude crude and mean. Even the employment lady. Really them plus the house resident manager what ever she thinks and It is so unkind to treat people like dirt And low life. And that’s exactly what they do at St Jude’s or whatever their new name is.?I would try them out definitely but I would be never be trusting of some of the employees. Just be aware and mindful. Fuck you

As far as I hear this facility is decent and has worked for several people, but if the problem is more than just a simple addiction issue, and the person has more mental illness(es), then this place may not be able to help as in depth as you may see necessary.

horrible treatment center. staff talked down to clients. take visits from your children as partial punishment, too willing to discharge people early over nonsense. i will never recommend this place
