I have heard tons of people complain about this program and how the program fails them and how they just babysit them. After being here and talking to the director personally, I hear it being stressed that this program will not recover you, this program is designed to test individuals in a controlled environment, the tests being relative to what we (the occupants) will experience in the world without a sheltered program holding our hand. There are clinicians and certified staff members with personal experience always working and willing to talk and answer any questions. This program is designed to give us oppirtunity to grow ourselves and our coping mechanisms if we allow it to and take the proper steps we as individuals need to do in our own lived to better ourselves and our habits. The program and staff members and clinicians are happy to provide materials and resources to help us along the path, but most of the time we have to be the ones to acknowledge that we need help, and to be the ones to ask for said help. This program allows the opportunity to nd encourages going to nearby AA/NA/faith based/church, as well as encourages us to start building healthy lifelong habits and skills, with incentives for doing so. Overall I greatly appreciate not only Stonehaven, but Rushford in general, I just wish more of my friends would open their eyes and accept help from programs like these.
