Complaint / review text:
It is true that A Forever Recovery is a different name for Stonehawk. While they do not push Scientology, they still are operated by the same people. They employ people that are active in their addiction to help people that are trying to save their life. They use telemarketing tactics to get people in the door. It is probably one of the only treatment centers in the state that pays $200 to the intake people for every client that they trick into coming in for treatment. They say that it is "spa-like, " has "jet-ski's, " "horses, " world class meals. What a joke. It is a run down building that floods when it rains, has rats/mice/roaches in the kitchen. They inflate their statistics of successful completion by graduating everyone that walks in the door. Whether or not they are ready to abstain.
They report that they are accepting insurance, but I would be very cautious because the person contacting the insurance is a recent graduate of the program without any knowledge of insurance requirements. Most of the clients that attend their program are from out of state because they are not able to get people referred to them from the state of Michigan.
Some of the other employees are really just the significant others of the owners family, and are recent graduates of the program. The fact that they condone client/staff relationships should be a red flag for concern for anyone trusting this place with the life of their loved ones. Sex is also another major issues at this facility, as they allow patients to have sex with each other, and the smoking area is inside the cafeteria area, so all the food tastes like smoke. Their are websites dedicated to how messed up this place is, please do research prior to sending anyone thei
