Troy Dorman owes me $2500 for treating his clients; sends checks that bounce. Repeated attempts to get the money have failed. Took advantage of the fact that I am on the east coast doing his video counseling and he is on the West Coast spending money given just for my help, which was an add on.

1.Check the online Stanislaus County Case Index under the name of Troy Dorman. There could be other case indexes online at different business locations, too. Google “Troy Dorman” Santa Cruz and you will see court case results online from the Santa Cruz area.2.Take the time to have everything in writing regarding your stay in the facility. Do not let anyone tell you this is not needed....it is, otherwise you could fall prey to being taken advantage of at a very vulnerable time in your life. This document should detail important concerns such as: refunds given when a person leaves treatment before he is supposed to, meals served while staying in the facility, how often counselors visit the facility and what they do when there, how often there are group sessions and visits to AA meetings, activities available during the stay in the facility (T.V., computers, board games, outside recreation, books to read), available health exams by doctors, who is in charge at the facility 24 hrs a day & 7 days a week, is the person allowed to leave the facility at any time during the day, daily routines should be outlined, and if the employees driving the people staying at the facility have the correct licensing and insurance for transporting a number of people to and from any meetings they are attending or medical clinics visited outside of the facility. 3. Be sure to visit the office and care facility before deciding on a rehab and take the time to interview not only Mr. Dorman, but his counselor and/or counselors who will be dealing with your loved one. Write down any questions or concerns you might have before meeting with them. 4.The online photo of the Modesto Living Center office shows a beautiful building and a well manicured yard. This is not up to date. The location has changed and the photo needs to be updated. 5.Remember, looking into a place for alcohol and drug treatment is during a very vulnerable and desperate time in your life. Please do not fall prey to someone taking advantage of you at this very fragile emotional time when you are so desperate to find the help you need for a loved one.
I gained allot from my stay. Silvia is a big asset to the counseling team and her words of encouragement are long lasting. There was 9 hours of daily meetings learning about recovery and addiction. You get what you put into it, like everything else. Up sides are a home like atmosphere, decent recovery clients. Downside was that they gave the wrong people access to the medicine cabinet and I was robbed of personal belongings that I cannot replace. The owner denied responsibility for the liability of loss. Allot of valuable counselors and interns recently left the company for which I'm sure they had good reason. The business side of the facility is not run properly which is the main reason this place rates so poorly. I wish that clients who relapse were treated differently and not given senior peer titles. Sorta goes without saying that if you lose sobriety you should have to work your way back up. Yes the clients do chores and are expected to do daily essentials but the responsibilities are shared among the house mates. I had a horrible experience with a highly reputable recovery facility in Florida so I was glad to have the living center to support me in the part of my life that was very broken. I wouldn't recommend a friend's there unless it was the last option in their journey for recovery but given that people who are serious about a sober life have hit rock bottom with no other options then by all means this place is appropriate based on my time there. I saw some graduate and some relapse. It's expected and if you don't believe that then you are fooling yourself with what the life of an addict is...I commend Silvia, Gary, Ryan, Robin, John and those to come for what is an emotionally challenging job. Most counselors in rehab are recovering addicts themselves. This is congruent in the majority of facilities of their kind.
Cory is really knowledgeable and has the compassion for clients and passion for the job that all counselors need.
Hello,I read the previous reviews and quite frankly Im sorry to hear that people havnt had good experiences. Usually people post a review because they are upset for one reason or another-they do it out of anger obviously. I have never posted a review before but I feel it necessary to post this time!! My son has been in 3 rehabs, 2 OP programs, 1 intervention and has lived and gotten kicked out of 2 SLEs due to his addiction. As a mother life has been a living hell. The living center has been the saving grace for our family. They care, they are terrific and my son is off the streets!! Not only that- my son is looking at becoming a counselor and for the first time feels like he has a focus to a better life WITHOUT drugs. I strongly recommend the living center. Their approach works!! I can't thank them enough! We all have our lives back...
This is a horrible place. The staff is unstable and manhandle the kids. The next door neighbor's give the kids cigarettes and sell them drugs. The kids are not supervised and bored out of their minds. It is an old dirty house, you are completely over charged for the stay. They kicked my daughter out and refuse to give me my deposit back. Do not go there, there are so many better places around. Huge waste of money.
