If I could give zero stars I would. Worst to non existent counseling and they with hold refunds owed to you and will not pay it back to you. Beware of promises. #fraud #stealing

I had no idea how blessed I was to end up at Hazelden in 1983 . I had been committed to the state mental hospital and was quickly turning into a throw away girl . Their unconditional love and knowledge gave me the best foundation I could ever hope for . Dec 13 th I had 37 years of sobriety . I could not have done it with out the extensive treatment I was given there . I still go to meetings , still do coffee , still go on speaking commitments , work my steps and read my big book . Thank you for my life very confusing as I’m trying to give five stars lol

Someday soon hopefully treatment centers will stop using the AAA model. It absolutely does not work waste of money very very disillusioned and hoping other people don’t fall into the same trap
