It does matter how the clinic looks,it's what you put in to your recovery ,you get what you put in. And as far as counseling goes there are a couple there who helped save my life and one was MS Dee. People have to remember the counselors are not there to hold your hand. Thank you FOLA.

This place isn't nearly as bad as most of these reviews claim it is. Personally I've been to 4 rehabs since 2013. People act like rehabs are supposed to cater to the individual person. It doesn't work like that. You pay for what you get. If you want to get custom treatment then expect to pay top dollar for the service then. While we where in active addiction, we didn't complain about the people,places and things we had to do to get are fix for the day. Now that a person wants to stop there abusive drug use, we are supposed to get 5 star service due to our bad choices and insane actions. Ofcorse there will always be some type of discrepancies when it comes to this type of environment. You have to keep the big picture in mind, don't let other peoples experiences compromise you. We are still blessed these places exsit. I seen a post where someone is getting a lawyer. Its these issues that are causing clinics to close and having clinics so raise rates. Why don't you sue the drug dealer that you got your drugs from? Bottom line this place has the tools to get you off the street drugs. Provide doctor's guidance, pain refilef and information to help individuals make better choices. Unless you have the money to go to a Betty Ford style rehab, be grateful for what we get for the price we pay. We where spending ten times the money while we where in active addiction. Rehab is not supposed to be easy & cater to us. We as adults made the choice to goto a particular rehab. The rehabs did force us to come. FOLA like any other clinic has its issues but nothing out of the ordinary. This place is pretty laid back for the most part. The groups are spread out decently. If you are required to do 2 groups a week, you have plenty of choices. Unlike another clinic where you have to do 3 groups a week if you have insurance. They picked the 3 days you had to go. If you are more than 5 minutes later it a missed group. 3 missed groups then you are put on the $40 a week plan.At FOLA, if you have county care you may be able to be picked up daily. HRDI or Renewed Hope didn't have that option.
