The therapist I had only talked about his experience with recovery and I did not feel it was structured to my needs. I was told all addicts are the same. You go to groups all day long, which is not too bad. The guy that ran men's group chewed on ice the whole time and had us read word for word from a sheet of paper. The food was not bad and you are allowed smoke breaks. Some of the nurses are burnt out and short tempered. They shove 12 steps down your throat as a catch-all. AA would have been cheaper and I would have learned the same stuff.
