My daughter was a patient at Casa Bella Recovery recently. Seeing as how their website boasts a 96% success rate, I had high hopes. Sadly, we quickly found out that this is not the case. To be honest, I would be surprised if they even had a 0.0096% success rate!
There were nothing but problems from the beginning. Patients AND staff were using drugs (heroin, crystal meth) in the house, without consequence. There is very little offered in the way of treatment, despite what they tell you when they are trying to get your money. There was a turn over in staff in the short amount of time that she was there, not to mention the fact that her own therapist relapsed! How can they be trusted to help someone beat their addiction, when they themselves are drinking and using drugs? The majority of their day is spent watching television, smoking cigarettes, and getting high. In my opinion, this is nothing more than an overpriced home for addicts to stay in while they continue to get high. It is only a matter of time before they get shut down!
I guess the only upside is that I was able to get my child out of there before she overdosed and died there. I was able to find a reputable, accredited, structured facility that is actually run by professionals.
