I called this facility for pain management, which I did not know they could treat unless you’re addicted. I called to cancel my appt, after speaking with my Therapist we both agreed that the label of addiction was not a good fit. Being in so much pain I called back if I had to have a label to lead a normal life so be it. Very nice women on the telephone noted that they do in fact treat people who are not addicted to pain management. Scared to do this, I went ahead, I sat with Dr.Hergon for maybe a half hour. She did not label me. I was there for pain management and that’s what I received. It’s been nearly 6 months, (yes I do give urine samples at every appt) and my pain is successfully treated. I always get a hello when I come to the office, never had I had a long wait, nor do I feel like less of a person. Within the six months, I was able to move to a home with a private beach. I no longer need to spend money on medications that no longer worked Anyhow. So Thank you Dr. Hergon, if it was not for you my life would not be where it’s at today and I am forever grateful. So call, make the step.
This facility helped a great deal for my son and family. Highly recommended. lots of good help. Very structured learn a lot about yourself. Need more staff. Its very helpful been clean since
Traveling for treatment lets you take a step back from the driving forces behind your addiction, whether they are stressed, individuals, or situations. Choosing to receive treatment in your local area can make it difficult to focus on what is most important, which is your recovery.
- Traveling allows you to escape negative social environments such as friends who abuse drugs or alcohol or strained family relationships.
- Traveling removes you from stressful work environments.
- Being away from home allows you to fully focus on your rehabilitation.
- Putting physical distance between you and familiar environmental and social substance-use triggers aids in the recovery process.
Yes, you may bring money to treatment. You can also have an account opened for you or your loved one at the facility.
