My husband is a client there for treatment. He actually is not receiving what I would call treatment at all. Once he was there for a few days and they knew about his outside career they put him to work fixing several thing in this facility. They have had him taking furniture out of the dorms and into some kind of heated hot box because this box is supposed to kill bugs. There facility is apparently over run by bedbugs and several other problem pest. Also have had him fixing air-conditioning units and several other electrical and things that should be certified by an actual professional company. The amount of food and the lack of nutritional value any of it hold is small amounts and not even enough to satisfy an small child. For people in recovery they need to have proper nutrition to sustain their healing body's and minds. It's truly sad when you can see the desperation in clients eyes when you visit. You can see they need alot more care and guidance they are receiving.
