Anyone that you know that needs treatment for alcohol and drugs, please DO NOT send them to Townsend Recovery anywhere in Louisiana. A person I know went there and that place is a huge rip off and someone should look into Townsend for fraud.

OMG. I am glad I did a search and saw this. My brother went there and it was suppose to cost him around $6000.00 for an IOP program. They billed his insurance for $20,000.00. Complete rip off

Yes, boy you guys hit the nail on the head. Michael Handley, he was the CEO but not sure of his title, is a lying con artist and I here he went to jail for passing a fake cashier's check. Also the CFO that Michael Handley hired was convicted of fraud in 2006. Amazing.
Townsend is nothing better than a pain clinic or should I say a pill clinic. They get you off of the Oxy's but get you hooked on Suboxone

The program works but they are charging people to much money and they are not being completely open about what goes on with billing etc. I would not recommend it at all

I'm glad to see this forum, Michael Handley ripped off some people
here in Florida to the tune of many, many dollars. Sounds like not
much has changed. Beware!

Hey Justin can you email me at greg.cutrer@yahoo.com so you can give me the information you have because Michael Handley and Townsend Recovery are being investigated by our Louisiana Health and Hospitals and it is being forwarded to the Attorney General's office. Thanks

Townsend is a great place to recover from addiction but you have to be DONE with drugs and alcohol. All the people making claims about fraud probably were using in the parking lot and got caught. I have been to many treatment places and have never been around people like the staff at townsend, they call you out on your shit and truely care about you. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone serious about recovery.
