If I could give this place less than one star, I would. This place is so money hungry and labeled me an 'addict' after my DUI and my DDP class required me to go through an evaluation. one counselor in particular, Helen Simon, is the most condescending counselor there. If you ever go there and she's your counselor, switch immediately. I was paying my co payment before I found out my insurance did not cover this, so I had to pay out of pocket. Little did I know, this was building up for weeks, and I was going 3x a week! Helen called me one day, and told me I could come back unless I paid $1000 that I owed(in back pay), and I proceeded to tell her I did not have the money and how was it MY fault that they didn't catch this? I asked the front desk people every time I was there, how much I owed, and I would pay it right there and then. The following weeks, Helen harassed me after every class, telling me, "well, maybe you can borrow it from your parents," in the most condescending tone I've ever heard. They label you all the same there, and even other people said they didn't think I was an addict. I occasionally drink and smoke pot. Does that make me an addict? According to them, it does. I thought being an addict meant you were dependent on the substance. They just wanted the $2000 they eventually got from me. All I wanted was my license back, and they continued to hold me in class until I 'graduated'. Best part? They didn't even submit my paperwork to Albany so I could get my license back. Imagine my surprise when I got a letter saying my license was being suspended because it said I didn't complete the program at Seafield. DO NOT GO HERE.
The program that is adhered to at The Seafield Center is invasive, aggressive, cliche, unpersonlized, ineffective, and finically driven. From the start it is made clear in other words that financial motivations are more important then the welfare of the clients. They use leverage by taking advantage of clients personal mistakes to glorify their role as an expensive drug test. The organization of their office end and the actually functionality of the program is sub-par either do to a lack of motivation or understaffing. Have of the hour session you pay for in the outpatient facility is taken up by addressing other clients program goals/discrepencies/schedualing/etc. before the group is addressed in any rehabilitating fashion. They will use any iota of leverage to keep you a client for longer then is actually necessary at the financial expense of the client. All of this is dwarfed by the horrible statistics of people who leave this program and those like it who complete treatment and can sustain a good life after words.Their program has consecutively failed clients time and time again yet nothing has changed which is why the get so much repeat of business. The majority of people who go to Seafield will return again due to the lack of, or just overall ineffectiveness of the treatment program applied. The Sober Houses living conditions are sub par and are not monitored properly and subsequently are riddled with people who continue to use with impunity.
