I loved the Isabella House and tell everyone about it, I went straight from Sundown M Ranch, the Isabella house staff were very caring and loving and treat you like family, yes I wanted to leave right away cause I wasnt done, if you are not done and ready to quit then you are going to put any place down, and the ones that keep saying their kids were sick, well duhhhh look at what we have done to them, they have been in drug homes with us, or abandoned and neglected, etc. dont you think that had major affect on our kids? I lost 3 kids to CPS and when I went to Isabella house I got 1 back and the other 2 after 3 years clean, yes I fell down but Isabella house taught me not to manipulate and to be completely honest and to be me, I dont have to people please anymore, i will tell like I see it, and I would highly recommend this place, my son never got sick there, yes there were a few that were, but their mothers said they used when pregnant or had them with them in drug houses, my aunt had my son and didnt want to give him back, and Isabella house helped me to put even CPS in contempt of court and get him back immediately, I then went to the transition house for 3 months and Isabella house helped me to get my GED, go to College, and get my first house on housing, it was the best thing in my life, if it wasnt for this program I would be still co-dependent, still at mommys and daddys house (I was 23) Now I have 6 years (7 on 6/23) I would go back anyday, I am very good friends with a few from there, and one of the house managers and another friend of mine that graduated and a few others from there get together lots, me and one of my friends is my best friend and she has 13 years coming up and she was in the Isabella house and graduated and doing wonderful. So for those of you knocking it, you have no clue and you are not helping your family members to change their life, do you know what kind of dumps we have been in before going through treatment? Anyplace is better than drug homes!!!!!!!! Isabella house is not dirty like you guys are saying it is, we had GI days where we had to clean spotless, dust on top of mirrors and over the doors, etc, and the food is amazing, we did donations for field trips and not cheap ones either, so our money is well spent their. You are fed well! Love ya all at Isabella house ( New Horizon Care Centers) Miss Ya.\r
Pros: You can have your children there!!!
Cons: Long term, but how long did we use???
