Sam drinks too much. Everyone knows it, surely even Sam. Last year during the holidays, your best friend was stumbling around, drunk, just about every time you saw him... but what happens after that?
Addiction is a deadly disease. With friends and family members in town for the holidays, this may be the best time for an intervention.

What happens after completion of rehab is critical to successful, long-term recovery from a drug or alcohol addiction. As many as 40% to 60% of patients treated for alcohol or another chemical dependency go back to using their drug(s) of choice within a year after treatment.

"Some people do extremely well without opioids and some people don’t. One size does not fit all. I think we need to pause and question SAMHSA’s big push for medication-assisted treatment before swallowing it whole, pun intended.”
The medical establishment has for more than a decade hailed Suboxone and other medications like methadone as the “standard of care” for treating heroin

Excellent facility. The staff is amazing and always so helpful with whatever we need. Recovery is a serious and important thing, but they also teach us how to have fun as well. I love Chris, Cathy, and of course katlyn, our alumni coordinator, she's amazing!!

Some of the staff is horrible. And the counselor Justin is not very reasonable. But then again some people are sicker then others. Extremely unorganized I would def not recommend this place. Just my opinion. I didn't have any consents and they went behind my back and still contacted my loved ones.

I am writing on behalf of my boyfriend who was there twice this year. Yes, it's mostly a part of what you take out of these places and your own recovery. We mainly chose this place for two reasons: insurance took it and it was local for us. However, it's really your typical rehab that probably does the best they can with most patients but they see a lot of repeat offenders. If you are in need of a HEAVY detox, got the the emergency room. If you need a lighter detox, it's a good place to start. What made me nervous is that even the nurses are "ex-addicts" and one even got fired for smelling like alcohol and driving irrationally to AA meetings. The girls and guys are separated which is great but there will be drama as you cannot stop that in most environments. There is an MD on staff but it mostly feels like you are being over medicated, there is some therapy but not much. It's really for a place to detox then move on. Their IOP is a joke (the one in Katy) and treatment plans in general are hard to follow as an addict as it is, they fall flat on this part. I went to a few meetings and they even allowed this "pimp" in on meetings to hang out with his "girlfriend" that was a patient. He was obnoxious, rude and disturbing. All that being said, my suggestion is Houston Behavioral Health Hospital for Inpatient treatment/detox for short term. Then try their intense PHP if you can, we are doing that right now and just hope for the best along with really hard work, their program is much more regimented and not so relaxed on rules.

As a parent of an adult under treatment there, I find the Saturday family sessions very enlightening. It certainly has opened my eyes more than before to understand it's a legacy illness (at least for this family) and start me on the road to reflecting on my own responsibilities. It's pretty much a well know fact that there is no 'magic bullet' , with the odds of long term success with most any program fairly low. My hope that by engagement as a family member I can boost the odds in my child's favor. Many thanks

I would not suggest this facility. Their staff is unprofessional and start romantic relationships with their patients. I couldn't understand why after treatment my child and I were cut off. Turns out the patient had been carrying on a relationship with a counselor there. Isn't their job to remain professional and help work through the family issues? Instead, help was given on a one sided spectrum to benefit the counselor's interests, while dismantling a family in the process. Just a warning, find another facility.

Facility is not that great. Some of the staff is terrible and unprofessional. There was one tech there named James that was great, listened to me and really seemed to care and offered really good guidance. If it wasn't for him I would give one star.

This was the first place to offer me a job upon my arrival to Houston. I was excited and eager to start. On my first day as a Recovery Advocate I saw at first hand how short staffed and ridiculous this place was. Most of the staff were nice and a few only there for a paycheck. People from the admissions office constantly asked me questions I did not know the answer to and expected a response immediately. They also expect you to stop what you're doing to go out of your way for them. I also noticed a lot of gossiping while I was not around which made me feel as if they were talking about me ( I don't care if they were). The supervisor Eled will try to work you to death and expect you to work overtime and pick up different shifts instead of hiring staff they desperately need. Definitely not worth the drive for little pay and outrageous benefits. I did not have a set shift there, although I was told they needed help on evenings but from the schedule they appeared short on almost every shift. The girl that trained me had a horrible attitude and would show me something once and expect me to know what to do instantly. Do not let this deter you from working in a drug rehabilitation facility, I'm sure there are better ones than this.
