Watershed Treatment Center Review by Anonymous
A member review of the rehab center completed on Saturday, February 27, 2016 8:47 AM MST.
I just left there Feb 25th and am not proud to say that I’ve signed myself into the Boca facility more than 8 times over the last 8 years. As of yet I haven’t been successful but that’s in no way an indictment of the quality of care at the Watershed. I just haven’t given myself to it 100%. I’m more determined this time and hopefully I can nail it down. First of all, this is drug and alcohol treatment. No matter how much you think you need it, If you’re like me the first time I got there you’re going to sober up during the first week and think “what the f… did I do? I need to get the hell out of here.” That was me my first time there in 08. I ended up staying for 3 weeks, went home, and was back in 2 weeks for another 10 days – this is when I had insurance and their limit was 30 days per year. This place is not the Taj Mahal but it is everything you’ll need to get sober and they will provide all the tools to drawl from to stay that way. Its spotless clean due to a huge staff of housekeeping. You won’t suffer through detox because you see the Psychiatrist every day and he will provide all the medication for a safe withdrawal that will be as comfortable as possible and won’t have you climbing up the walls. There is always a share of people there that are unhappy with any situation and they seem to be the ones with an axe to grind here on this site. The large majority of people are extremely thankful for the care received. When you’re satisfied with something you usually don’t feel a strong need to give your feedback, whether it be a restaurant, hotel, or a rehab. I heard quite a few people talking about the terrible online feedback over the last 10 days and that’s why I’m writing this. The best part of the Watershed is the staff followed closely by the food. Almost all of the staff is in recovery themselves and are extremely supportive. From the Director to the Behavioral Techs they are wonderful. You come in contact with the techs constantly and it is very clear that they care about you more than you care about yourself. The Boca facility is appropriate for people close to 30 and older. The younger people are usually steered to the Boynton facility to which I’ve never been. The bottom line… if you can’t check your ego at the door you’re not going to like any treatment facility worth a damn. If that’s the case with you I would suggest you go to the fake rehab in CA with the “former addict” who isn’t anymore. My email address is tomcatkelly67 at gmail dot com. If you have specific questions feel free to email me. I wish you the best in what ever it is you’re looking for. If you have a relative there right now please relax in knowing that they are safe and in loving, caring, capable hands. If you want to complain about the Watershed please don’t do so with me. Sincerely, Thomas K.
