Editorial review from Citysearch 1/2/2015

I went there in 2013 for alcohol recovery. The food was great! The staff was vindictive and discussed patients in the open. The program was great. A number of patients had been there many times. I hope it finally worked for them. The doctor who runs the place saw me once with his slate of questions. He will tell you to remember FIVE WORDS, as he continues his questions. If you don't remember them all upon his command, you will be labeled with dementia for the rest of your life, in writing. Then if you want to get out of the place when you have had it, you get to go through more humiliation and accusing. I wanted to call the police but had to go through the release process for an entire day. Don't give ANYTHING to other patients. The staff thinks you are demented and says you should not let yourself be taken advantage of. Have a cigarette? NOT. And from their little cubicle, they advertise it to anyone near it. I happened to be there with about 12 other patients while I was being discussed. I was humiliated and pitied in a group. There is absolutely no patient privacy. The big lesson I left with was that I have dementia because of those five little words and the very public humiliation about it. I can still speak publicly, write songs, own a home and live. I don't care about the five words to this day, but if you don't care, you are screwed! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/30/2012

I stayed at TxStar 10 days for Ambien withdraw. You would see the doctors only on the weekdays. My doctor decided to take his vacation half way threw my stay so I could only see the nurse pract. The food was horrible. Everone complained about it. I ordered out every night. Rosa the nurse was awesome. This place looks nothing like the pictures. If you can get past the food & are being treated for alchol I would recommend this place. They have great support for AAA more

Not worth it. fall 2009 inpatient 3/28/2011

REALLY EXPENSIVE!! Felt like i was in prison and it was 3 weeks for 15 thousand. We paid cash too! No insurance. And... one girl needed to stay another week to complete the 3 weeks but her insurance company backed out on the full 3 weeks. Absolutely no compassion from Texas Star for financial assistance and they had already been paid for two weeks! pissed me off!! Now, to their credit they will help you from any intense withdrawals be it opiates, meth, or alcohol. However I have chronic anxiety and they just wanted to misdiagnose it with bipolar and alcoholism. I have tried and tried to stay off of benzos but I absolutely cannot. I can maintain now however if I do not drink( which was my problem). There had been many other people that had been through there at least once before. The doctor did not see me every day even though they charge you for that anyway. I was having anxiety and needed medicine over the weekend but the doctor wasn't there and that was that... no recourse! I didn't sleep for two days and was a wreck! Some people liked this place fine but for the money it is an old building with a depressing layout - not too bad but nowhere near great. The best thing about the place were the volunteer and paid speakers. more

Try something else 12/6/2010

Do not go to this rehab. I wanted to discuss my situation in the assessment meeting; the counselor wanted to discuss proverbs and asked me to spell words backwards. The neuro assessment seemed to be the most important thing. It frightened me, so I left. I called after a month to try to make another appointment, and was told that I was, ""not ready to come to rehab. Well, I was a mess, and I needed rehab, but I guess I'll get it together on my own. If you have complicated problems or would like someone to understand your situation, try somewhere else. more
