very very good program. they helped my son so so so much. i loved family week. very helpful and i do believe they care. however........i strongly suggest you not pay up front like i was led to do......i was in a very weak spot due to my son's addictions and paid everything up front. he was blessed to leave early, and i will tell you...not a single penny back. i think i forgot that it is a business.....a very very profitable business. you go in there and you are so worn down....you are desperate. i advise to pay monthly as the program goes along instead all up front. they will NOT give you anything back.....and.....the level of communication becomes almost silent. when you go in....there is this huge level of support and everyone is so on top of the game. but quiet as can be when it comes to the finances. just be very careful about what you pay.....there will not be a dime given back. they came up with every excuse as to why i wouldn't be given anything back.....very grossly mislead on how they do their charges. i must admit i signed my life away when i entered my son...but i was so eager and desperate. care is good....but just watch your pocketbook closely.
My brother has spent two months at the Origins Recovery Center of Texas at S. Padre Island. They came highly recommended and had a bed available the day we needed it, so we moved him down there. It has been a very frustrating experience. I recommend that people go elsewhere if they or a loved one needs treatment. We will not return my brother to their facility should he relapse.
I understood that they were a very good facility, and they were recommended by our interventionist. I’m sure they are, though the treatment for my brother is not working. Even after two months, he’s still manipulating, lying, and very, very angry. He’s a bad case, though, and I can’t expect miracles.
My biggest problem with them is the lack of communication. They never give us any information and never respond to phone calls or emails, not even from our mother, who is on the communication list. I understand the privacy requirement, but some things are essential for the family to know and are not covered by the HIPAA laws. For instance, when is he getting out? We’ve paid for three months and now the ex-wife says she received a letter from my brother that says he’s leaving before the end of the second month. His early departure is not a health condition, is not covered by HIPAA, and is very important to the rest of us.
Before going in, he was continuously vandalizing his ex-wife’s home, throwing rocks through her window, bashing in the car door, showing up in the home unexpectedly in violation of a restraining order, and generally making life miserable for everyone. We have no idea when he’s getting out, we have no idea if he’s going to a transition house or just coming back to terrorize everyone again and relapse. We need to know something about his return so we can either accept him back as an improved version of himself, or protect ourselves from his anger and abusiveness if the treatment didn’t work. Origins does not care about the rest of the family, only the patient and the payment guarantor. And they only care about the guarantor when it’s time for the guarantor to pay. They are enabling my brother to continue to try to control our lives by their lack of communication. The fact that my brother could show up on their doorstep unannounced terrifies my mother and my brother’s ex-wife.
Origins is very good about communicating what money you owe, and following up for payment. I assume they are as advertised when it comes to the quality of their treatment program, though that’s not working for us. They are absolutely horrible when it comes to communicating with anyone else or assuaging the fears that the addict will come out as angry and abusive as when they went in. To me, that’s an important part of the healing process, too. Without that communication, the family is still twisting in the wind, waiting for the addict to drop the next shoe or cause the next crisis. It’s a terrible way to exist, and unfair to the very people the addict has harmed on his way to the bottom.
Additionally, we had paid for three months stay at Origins and my brother decided he’d only stay for two. We were supposed to receive a refund and have not. Origins did not respond to emails or phone calls regarding the refund. This, too, was very frustrating.
No matter what happens, we are done with Origins. We will not go back to Origins on our nickel. They are too expensive, too arrogant, too self-absorbed, too isolated, and too uncommunicative for us to pay that sort of money and be treated like they’ve treated us. I would not recommend Origins to anyone unless you are really, really desperate. They are too expensive, too unresponsive and, for us, ineffective.
This place saved my life, after numerous treatment centers and overdoses I finally landed here with the help of my family. With a little willingness I was able to take full advantage of the program. The facilities are amazing and the staff are some of the best in the business (at least they were 3/14-5/14). This place gave me a new outlook on life and got me excited about sobriety. At one point my insurance tried to cut me off at 30 days and they worked it out for me to stay 55 days. This place works miracles and all of the other reviews that are speaking negatively of this place are jokes. If you didn't get anything out of the program they offer than it is your own damn fault for being unwilling and lazy. I know hundreds of men and women that have went to this program and have succeeded because of the work they did while there. Just check out how packed the Alumni Weekend is... Thank you God for placing me at Origins Recovery Center. I have no doubt that without them I would be dead.
This program is just a giant scam. I am still so angry that they fleeced me for $60,000. I can't even think about it without getting physically angry. It would have been OK if they offered some kind of solution, but their program is a joke. The staff are indifferent and lazy. The facilities are shoddy. They pinch pennies everywhere, while soaking you and your insurance company for thousands. Just awful. Spent 60 days there. Worthless.
My son was blessed by being able to go to origins for help with his drug addiction. I would highly recommend origins. He has been sober now for 3 years. He has helped others and I couldn't be more proud of him and how he's turned his life around.
The staff were always available to talk to me about his progress and how he was doing.
They helped facilitate his exit from origins into a transitional home and then on to a group home. Within just a couple months he was made house manager. His self esteem rose and he took the responsibility seriously.
He has a good job now and trusted. He's earned the trust.
He is closer to the Lord and I credit origins with that.
They have a better percentage of patients not returning to drugs than any other treatment centers.
I highly recommend Origins if you're suffering from subtance abuse issues. I went in January 2013 and it literally saved my life. The clinical and medical staff are awesome and go above and beyond for their patients. My insurance cut me off a week prior to my discharge date and they let me stay for free even though they had people waiting to get in.
In regards to the previous review -- this sounds like a personal problem to me. It is not the responsibility of Origins to change how people are/the way they act. Origins provides its clients with the tools to do that themself. Lying and manipulating are character flaws that should be addressed by the 12 steps and handled personally. Like the saying goes..."You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink."
In conclusion, you should really consider Origins if you're having issues with subtance abuse. It is pricey, however, they accept most insurances and you honestly cannot put a price tag on your own or a loved ones life.
