They give you the knowledge of the recovery process. They know the different ways to approach subjects/ However, there was not enough one-on-one counseling. In addition, they need to set home plans before leaving. I learned a lot being that this was my first treatment facility. It changed my body, mind and behaviors.

The place was like a prison, ... very poorly structured classes. I couldn't wait to get out of that prison.
