  1. Recently my daughter put herself n there because she found out she was pregnant and had been addicted to Meth and knew she had to quit and wanted to clean up. She was one of the very few who wasnt court ordered to be there. Unfortunately it turned out to be a terrible place and nothing like they had told her it would be like and everyday she hated it but I told her she had to do it and she couldnt come back home until she finished the program. It was awful the way they treated her and she was going nowhere fast, not learning much because they so often were short staffed they had to watch childrens movies or the same movies over and over. She had gotten written up on two occassions for things she didn’t do and they very obviously had favorites they let do things and get away with everything and others didn’t allow them to better themselves As for me a parent i had to go to 4 meetings a week apart before i would be allowed to visit her yet I have only actually been to one The first one I couldnt attend because her Counselor didn’t put e on the list, the 2nd was cancelled due to it being Thanksgiving and the Instructor didn’t feel like coming in the 3rd I was able to attend and I was the only parent in there and then the last was cancelled for who knows why. Her Counselor obviously doesn’t like my daughter and goes out of her way to not allow her any privledges and is not in more than she is in and never returns phone calls.The Staff all had rude and condensending attitudes and it was just a terrible experience
