Unfortunately, the quality of care is very poor. If you are truly trying to get clean, this is not a facility you want to go to. They do not rehabilitate you. People in there need to get the proper therapy and meetings. This place will trigger you and if you have any kind of trauma- you will not make it. They need more staff. They have the addicts running the house rather than the workers. It is horrible that a place like this that could help so many people runs the way it does. This place sets addicts up for failure. Most people are mandated to be here. Yes- maybe it seems better to go here than jail or prison, but if you are court mandated you will probably not make it anyway. If you have a family member in here please advocate to get them sent somewhere else. The phone calls are supervised and the mail is read so the addict is unable to speak freely and at will.

thank god you tell the truth, damon house caused me P.T.S.D. .. it’s no joke.. thank god for AA after I got out I am coming up on two years clean but if damon house inquiries I will tell them I relapsed when I left so they don’t try to add me as a positive statistic I lost my wife to illness right before I was admitted and they never addressed grief, they just yelled at me and punished me ( stand in corner for hours etc. ) I would be punished worse if I told my family and all mail is screened, and phone calls are on speaker with staff so it’s impossible to tell anyone privately how you are humiliated and mistreated. they should close any program that thinks T.C. or behavior based programs equate to cruelly treating clients and calling it therapy

The only thing the Damon house has to offer is that it is free. They are incredibly rude to their residents families. If you have children with a resident and they have a medical problem, they do not pass the information to the resident. I think they are a horrible establishment

Damon house

Damon house
Details:

Damon House is one of the worst rehabs possible. The staff is absolutely rude, inconsiderate, and VERY unprofessional. When we called to check up on our family member we were hung up on multiple times and this wasn’t even in his blackout period! When we were allowed for family visitations the staff was extremely unfriendly and treated us as if we were stupid. Not to mention they treat the clients as if they are stupid as well. When our family member left they stole all of his clothes and replaced them with clothes THAT WERE NOT HIS, shoes that were not his and the clients are allowed to have money put into their accounts, well all of his money was put on an ebt card, NOT IN HIS NAME, with no PIN number to use, and no security password so he can’t even use it. These places are meant to help people get better but Damon House makes you worse. No one cares about your well being in this hell hole, all they care about is their money. No wonder why clients are fleeing left and right and would rather be in prison than stay here.
