Complaint / review text:
I have done a lot of research in the field of addiction treatment to write this report;
This agency uses a very dangerous approach which causes a lot more harm to the clients by " dealing with the trauma issues". For that purpose they have adopted the so called " Pia Melody " approach which everyone in the treatment field will tell you is way too soon to bring out into the process. So this is what normally happens; addict gets to their program and right away they start probing for major trauma issues which off course they all have. The addict now begins to feel very uncomfortable and highly triggered by all these emotions like shame and guilt and then to top it off, they pay lip service to 12 steps programs. My son told me that they really do not like AA and his therapist told him that he should look for something else because 12 steps do not work. Never mind that 12 steps have been around for over 75 years and when applied, it really works.
