they wont help my daughter – my daughter is 17 and in new life now she has bipolar and they refuss to help her with her condiction they tell us the she no longer has bipolar and all she has is anger issues the woman i talked to is summer and she tell me after all the years my daughter has been going to cheer mental health that she never had this illness at all and that they were wrong to say she has biploar.my daughter has never failed a drug test but she tells them she is hooked on drugs she has in the past tried to kill herself and has told others that she is having a baby and never did but they say she was acting out over the drugs she was on . i have ask them for 2 months now to do a hair test to see what drugs she has taken but they dont care what proof i want they will take her word for it[[[[ i hope this place shuts down ]]]]
hello? hellooooo? – My husband is inpatient here and says he is being treated failrly well... I'm frustrated as Hell with them though. they go on and on about how crucial it is that the family communicate with the staff there and get treatment also and participate in their GREAT PROGRAM... but I have no idea how to get anyone to return a phone call!! He has been inpt 2 weeks now and it always takes at least 5 calls before someone returns a call. The only way I could get them to respond was to threaten that weren't goingt o get paid any more money.
The day we admitted him I asked about the family program and they said "Oh well we will contact you will ALL of the information and formally invite you!" now it is 9 pm the night before the program and nobody has told me ANYTHING. I have no idea what the program is or what time I'm supposed to be there and between my inlaws and myself we have left probably 10 different voicemails on the last 5 days. I have two small children and no car and needed to plan ahead if I was going to participate in this "crucial" family help that they "provide".
it's what you make of it – there are plenty of bad reviews written about any treatment center, and there are some about new life. when i was there, there were a lot of court ordered fools just trying to "do the time" to satisfy the court who had no intention of getting help or trying to help others. you can bitch and moan about every little thing, OR, you can do what i did---
i got sober because i had too, for myself and for my child and for my family. NO, i didn't like it or enjoy it, NO, i did not like the most of staff, the food, the room, and most of the pitiful ignorants there wasting their life and others time, but i wasn't there for the atmosphere and camaraderie, i was there because i loved drugs more than i loved my child and i could not face living with the idea i would, not could, lose him because i was a total eff up and placing him in danger with my carelessness and disregard for his safety and well being.
as my subject line reads: it's what YOU make of it, you can piss away the time being as stupid as you were when you came in and leave just as stupid, or you can use the time to detox and make plans for your and your child's life without drugs. NO treatment center will change you, you have to change you, and i hope and pray that is what i have done.
New Life Lodge SUCKS!!!! – I spent 15 days at New Life Lodge, and in my time there, I saw some things I never thought I would see. First of all, don't believe a word that they say about their facility on their website. The facility is a piece of $hit. If you are looking for quality rehabilitation, you won't find it at New Life. They only care about money. About 85% of the patients there are court ordered and don't want to be there. Some of them even smuggled drugs onto the campus! The nursing staff does not give you any medical attention beyond handing out meds. I have high blood pressure, and was told by the nurse to come back in an hour to have that checked. When I returned to the nurses station, I knocked on the door and the nurse yelled "go away!!!". I couldn't believe it. My final breaking point was how the staff can't handle the thugs they treat there. On my final day, one of the court ordered patients took his own feces and spread it all over the bathroom walls, sink, toilet, paper towel holder, and everything else. At that point, I signed myself out of that mad house and seeked help from a suboxone doctor. That is what I recommend everyone to do. I urge anyone who reads this to go anywhere other than New Life Lodge. It is absolutely a Hell hole.
im an adolescence at new life lodge threw dcs custody.. the 35 days ive been here i have only had 2 real na groups and they were at a free outside group called dafa house. they havent taught me anything.. i ask/beg all the time to get a more intensive treatment but all they do is lie or say you are in the wrong place hours ofthis is a behavior faciltity. your supposed to have atleast 4 group a day and 2 na meetings a week wich is on the contract. but you do about two 30 minute groups a day, and all it is is a feelings check and then people just talk and ignore the councelor. its bad and im here to help dcs and private payers to save the money and do not fall for the scam they feed you. its a total joke and the staff always talks about how bad it is and how we dont learn anything... dont let anyone tell you different, take it from someone who has been there 35 days and has 85 days left.the only reason a kid should go here is if he doesnt want to get help and just wants to look good for court
BEST REHAB I HAVE BEEN TO! – I WOULD RECOMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE! THIS DOES NOT FEEL LIKE A COLD HOSPITAL LIKE ALL THE OTHERS I HAVE BEEN TO. IT FEELS LIKE HOME! AND EVERYONE MAKES YOU FEEL SO WELCOME AS SOON AS YOU GET THERE. I WENT TO CUMBERLAND HEIGHTS AND ONLY STAYED 8 HOURS. BUT NEW LIFE LODGE SAVED MY LIFE. THEY FEEL LIKE FAMILY. I ALWAYS WANT TO GO BACK TO VISIT. IT FEELS LIKE I GREW UP THERE. WELL, I GUESS I DID. LOL! I LOVED IT SO MUCH I WENT TWICE IN THE SAME YEAR (2007)! IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, GO TO NEW LIFE LODGE!!!!! THEY WILL LITERALLY GIVE YOU A NEW LIFE!
