I wish that I could rate this place with ZERO stars. The "care" here is nothing short of abuse. DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES HERE !!!!!

I felt like my disorder understood. The staff was respectful and helped me a bunch! thanks for saving me.

Originally, I did a poor review thinking that Ridgeview had released privileged information to a n individual who suggested privileged information was released about a friend in treatment. However, the professionals quickly clarified this did not occur & would not occur. HIPPA regulations are strictly honored, and this reassurance was a relief. After spending many weeks with the professionals at Ridgeview, I am confident in this program now. It is strict, challenging, and focused on true recovery. Ridgeview helps families identify triggers, and establishes therapeutic methods for the entire family to understand the disease at a higher level. The family support network at times harbors historical pain and anger while the patient progresses through recovery. Professionals at RV help family establish good coping skills & suggestions for individual therapy such as Ala- Non. I am thankful for this program.

Staff was deceiving at the lengthy check-in. Many assurances made were complete falsehoods. Do your research before bringing a loved one here. Notice how all but one review here is dated years ago? They are deleting all negative reviews!

Ridgeview Helped

Ridgeview really helped once I got out of the first program. It helped me to learn to manage my problems in a better way then I had before; which was isolation. I try not to do that anymore.

My son is an addict. It's shameful, and embarrassing. Ridgeview taught me it is a brain disease. I have learned so much in the 3 weeks my son has been there. I've seen a HUGE change in him. He loves it there, and I love it there. I have a new family now. The staff is second to none. I am so happy with his decision to go to Ridgeview. It is truly a GREAT place!

Changed My Life!

I hit a brick wall and knew I had to go ""somewhere!"" Researched several places to go and for various reasons Ridgeview was the place I chose. I was terrified with the unknown but I needed help and I just had to walk in and let it happen. The days will filled with two group therapy, two lectures, meditation, nightly recovery meetings and two to three psychiatric appointments per week - for four weeks. I can honestly say I walked out a different person. This program is not just designed to help people with addictions but is also for people with mental health issues. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to give themselves a new lease on life! I was fortunate enough to be inpatient and live in the ""house"" while I was there. The friendships I formed there are something I will cherish the rest of my life.

Changed my life

I initially did not want to seek help at Ridgeview because I believed I did not have a problem with alcohol. Looking back -- not only did I have a problem but my life was starting to unravel. I entered their evening outpatient program, and it's the single best decision I've made my entire life. The staff educated me on addiction and how it is a disease, not an issue of morality. The campus and facilities are comfortable. I still attend free after care groups.These days I am a much happier, healthier person. I have a whole new perspective on life and Ridgeview to thank for it.

Staff Genuinely Care

Having experienced treatment at Ridgeview and at other rehabilitation facilities including both a ""country club"" and a ""boot camp"", I am confident in recommending Ridgeview to anyone in need of help with alcoholism or addiction. Yes, the admissions process can be tedious and a bit frustrating. The one thing I can tell you for certain is that once you get past the admissions hurdle, the staff at Ridgeview genuinely care about you as a person. They did not give up on me, even though they had every right to, and they went out of their way to show me that they cared. Their concern for patient success carries over into the alumni/aftercare program which is one of the best in the country and is available to all alumni, absolutely without cost for as long as we choose to participate
