Everyone that works there has a lot of experience in dealing with addiction and even dual diagnosis which really helps. This is a great setting for rehab. The food they serve here is absolutely delicious. We are so blessed to have a center like Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center in Saint Louis. Great program, very caring staff and clean facility. They incorporate peers as a staff that helps the addict connect. Apart from the medical treatment plan Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center offered recovery of my confidence and strength.
techs and clinicians were fantastic.. Everything at the facilities defines luxury and comfort. Going to therapy alone was enough of a wake-up call. The staff is amazing and they truly care. Definitely a great staff all around and 24 hr supervision helps make this place really feel safe and comfortable for your treatment. I really loved being at Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center and I have learned a lot.
Fast admission Dont know really As of now my brother is at Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center, and he is there since 2 weeks. I am glad that he is through the hardest part. He said that the detox was fine, he got loads of help and it went as smooth as it was possible to go. The medical staff are very competent he said, and that the nurses are there helping out whenever he needs. We called the center like 3 weeks ago, cause we wanted to find a center where he can get real help. The person who got on the phone with us was very helpful. We talked a couple of times, before we (me and my mom and brother) decided which center to choose. After they did all the paper work very quickly. The papers with the insurance vent very fast. They did the intake very quickly. We were all very pleased with the administration that at least this did not pose a problem. The place itself is nice, very clean and orderly. My brother told us he is in a room with one room mate and that they get along very well. He said that the care takes and counselors are all very nice. All the other staff members are nice to him, and he likes the program. He said that it is since about a week he start on the 12 steps, but they gave him 2-3 options, he wanted to do the 12 steps. He said it is going well, and now he for some friends, who show him around and help him out.
Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center offers a variety of services that most other treatment facilities do not such as Equine Therapy, Yoga therapy, and weekend community recreation. Not only does Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center focuses on the individual, it views the process of growth to be family oriented and takes on a magnificent systems approach to reuniting individuals to a healthy, functioning family system by revising the system itself and all members within it. So pleased with the staff and therapist. The team is highly talented, patient and understand the trauma the patient is dealing with and extend all needed support love, affection and care to heal the patient. Everyone from the director to the housekeeper to the chefs takes a personal interest in each and every patient. The Head Chef was fantastic. Everyone treated me here with compassion and love. Thanks for showing me a way out!
Amazing staff A weakness was the old building This program is very efficient in terms of rehab and recovery and detox. This was an amazing experience, both for a strong start to my sobriety as well as a positive jumping off point for my sober relationships. The supportive staff was available to me 24/7 and were with me every step of the way to my recovery; from one-one-one talks with my counselor to supportive and safe, group meetings. I was always made to feel that my health and sobriety were of first priority to everyone with whom I worked. There was always a nurse in watch, and whenever there was any difficulty, I knew I could count on them, and on other staffs. The possibility of choosing from different programs just made things easier. I was not forced to do a program that I did not agree with, I have the possibility to decide for myself. And through out my stay, many times I had the possibility to choose, I was never forced into anything I did not agree with. I think that this is something that other rehabs lack, and I am glad that Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center is open minded about these things, and they let you choose. The grounds and buildings are immaculately kept and the food is great. My extensive food allergies were accommodated constantly. I would not hesitate in recommending Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center to anyone who suffers from addiction as they have changed my life and support me on a daily basis.
The staff at Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center really go the extra mile to make sure every client is well taken care of. Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center specializes in providing intensive care as. This center is effective - that is the most important matter in any rehab. The staff designs a plan where people in recovery can be holistically treated. There is a number of activities that you can engage in to get your mind off of the withdrawal symptoms. My 30 days there was more than amazing & it has honestly saved my life.
God Bless!
It was a very pleasant first-rehab experience. Not at all what I was expecting going into treatment. For the most part (there are a few bad apples who are not worthy of the following praise, and some who definitely had a negative impact on other patients as well as my own experiences at Name[]) the staff is wonderful, kind and you can tell they truly care about you.
Compassionate and caring staff! Staff, Small setting feels more personable, all women, peer bonding, workshops.
Black Alcohol/Drug Service Information Center allowed me to take control of my life again, and saved me from a life of addiction and disease. If I didn’t go to treatment when I did, I’m not sure if I would be alive today. I am grateful every day to the second chance they have given me.
