  1. Some of the staff there are amazing, others are very rude. If you go in there for alcohol problems, this place is grreat. If you go in there for opiate problems .. you may run into a huge problem yourself. For opiate addicts, half of the patient gets tapered comfortably off of suboxone, while the other half are put on a librium (plus about six other meds) regimen, which does NOTHING for opiate withdrawal .. and you are left to lay there in bed while you suffer and feel like death. Meanwhile, while feeling like death, you are expected to get up and go to the gym for meals. If you miss the meals, you’re screwed for the day. They are very strict with the rules there in general. One lady yelled at me for sitting in the wrong chair when I was brand new. The staff also lies to you, and your family, which I found out once I was reunited with my family. They lied and told my family member I was too sick to come to the phone and talk to her, meanwhile when she came in my room and never asked me anything about going to a phone to talk to my family. The doctor there is a nasty woman who does not treat you as an individual, does not care about a word you have to say regarding you treatment, and basically dictates your meds how she wants. It’s her way or the highway. If it wasn’t for them taking me off most of my home meds which I genuinely needed (and didn’t abuse), and then not putting me suboxone on to taper me off of opiates like they did for 75% of the other patients, I might have had a better stay at Clearbrook. But the second I tried to advocate for myself, I was treated like dirt. Word of advice if you’re going there for opaite withdrawal… lie and don’t EVER tell them you’ve done a benzodiapine of any kind or you will be put on a useless librium regimen, plus six other meds that knocked me on my ass for two days straight, so basically I was left there to withdrawal but was so loopy I couldn’t do anything to make myself comfortable. I was more fucked up on the meds there then I ever have been on drugs on the street, and even though you have a RIGHT as a human being to refuse medications, one of the nurses hand fed them down my throat after I said I didn’t want them. Wish they would’ve just listened to me and treated me like an individual when it came to my meds because I would have really enjoyed the rest of my stay there.

    • This facility is no longer owned by Clearbrook. They have a new program just for us opiate addicts.
