Talbott, being somewhat effective in what they do, are much more effective taking your money and making professionals stay much longer than initially indicated. If you have a lot of money or are covered under insurance (doctors and pilots) your chances of being forced to stay are probably 80%. And why not, Talbott knows one call to the PHP or to the pilot’s employer will sink a career. The ethics violations at Talbott are unbelievable. This is a criminal conspiracy in every way. Insurance fraud is the tip of the proverbial iceberg. What do you call it when you intentionally treat people for something they don’t want and intentionally falsify documents? Sounds quite criminal to me.

The overall therapeutic experience and treatment included in this facility was very successful, although it was difficult times and bad things to see. Great experience, attention and cleanliness all this gives a sense of security. Prices are a little high In any case prices should be reduced slightly That would be great.

They were mean and didn't offer physical health options like a gym, but they were very good at what they did. Sober 21 years now.All staff was in recovery. They were well-trained in dealing with high-functioning addicts and alcoholics so they didn't fall for the usual bs. They were very strict. I think that's important with addicts. Women had to be in groups of three to go on errands, men only groups of two. And they didn't support exercise at all. I was a runner and all I wanted to do was run and I had to get two other women to come with me to the track to make that happen. No gym. I don't think there needs to be a bunch of spa stuff but basic access to exercise is a necessity bc there's a lot of energy in early sobriety.

I personally spent 80,000$ + on this autrocity only to come out with more problems than I went in with. I only regret not having a mrans to document some of the things that I witnessed there. Just PLEASE if you are wanting help sadly you need to be careful whom you get it from. The price tag does not guarentee the quality of care. Also gl and take care to any on the road of recovery!

Went in for an "assessment." There were 8 ppl in my assessment group. Some ppl had minor issues like taking their physician's prescribed medications and some ppl had true addictions. Nevertheless, Talbott recommended 90 day ($30,000) treatment for every single person irregardless of the magnitude of their substance use. I would say they have an unethical financial incentive to make this one glove fits all recommendation. Do NOT come here for an assessment - the whole 3.5 days seemed more like an interrogation than medical evaluation. Also, the ppl at Talbott for long term 90 day treatment are practically in jail - cannot go to gym unless you are accompanied by another person. Cannot go out of living complex unless you have three ppl together.
