This is an absolutely horrible place. I spent a year there with my entire family back in 2000. It was the worst experience of my life. The staff do not care about you a all. My parents originally sent my sister there because she was being rebellious and they didn't know how to handle her. They should have received counseling or something, anything but send her/us there. We ended up staying with her and they split our entire family us, saying we all needed help. It was heart breaking. My brothers were all split up and sent to live with a family, who physically abused them, but they were too afraid to talk about it. And my sisters and I were slit up as well. My parents were aso separated into different recovery programs, which my parents didn't need to recovery from anything. My parents or any of us children, including my sister had done alcohol or drugs ever. My parents needed guidance on how to deal with my sister, not on how to recovery.
I hate this place, with all my heart, and I am a Christ follower.This place does not exude Christ's love, instead it follows the philosphy of continual punishment. The school was not a good experience either. They separate the guys and girls in the classroom and you're not allowed to talk to each other or have any interactions with each other either in school or out of school. It's basically a prison. We ended up leaving when another family who had once been there helped us to realize the evil therein. I think my parents were brainwashed into thinking they had all these problems which is why they stayed. I didn't find out what happenned to my brothers until years later. My little sister who was about 5 at the time, would pee in the bed sometimes, which I believe is a symptom of the familial split, and the director of our girl's home would give her cold showers in the morning, with her clothes on as punishment. That happenned a lot. I cry as I think about the abusive way these people treated individuals there. I can't believe any parent would resort to this. Another reviewer is right, there were a lot of kids I knew who had been adopted from Russia and then just left there, as if it wasn't their responsibility to raise their own children. This place harms families and does not promote recovery.

I went there years back I would never go back . two weeks in my fatherpassed away back home ...(notified by staff) I was told that I couldnt leave to attend his funeral cause there were no buses leaving out for another two weeks later that same night A overnight staff came to my room approx. 11pm and requested to see him in the office he then told me that I was lied to and that theirs a bus leavin out of quincy (trailways) He told me to grab as much as i could and "sneak" out the back door walk down the dirt road and wait by the abandon junkyard located a few mile down and he'll come to pick me up...it was very cold that night and I admit i was afraid, but i had to get home! acting on emotion I replied...30 mins had passed and then i was picked and driven to Quincy I arrived in Quincy around 2:30 3:00 am trailways didnt open til 9:00 the driver told me "Im sorry but i gotta go" ....so he left I had to find a salvation army for shelter and i did, but was unable to enter until i get processed thru the police dept...and i did case in point i miss my fathers funeral had my belongings stolen ect...one of my biggest worst situation i have ever had to go thru I WOULD NEVER GO BACK EVER!

Heartland saved my sons life. He had been in and out of prison most of his life. A meth addict. Now, 3 years later, my son is happy, healthy, and drug free. I highly recommend it.

Part 2.. You get it all. If you leave early. You loose it all. A great incentive to stay and get well! I am sure there may be some bad thigs I do not know about. There is bad everywhere. Its what we make of it. With lemons, make lemon aide. My son only being there one month is talking about paying a friend he barrowed from and never paid back. He's telling me, his dad, he is going to pay me back for the most comfortable boots I sent him for his feet. He has even offered to pay for my stay at the Lodge they have there for those that have to travel long distance to visit. Anybody can eat there at the cafe and steakhouse. Which by the way, those members can cook. I am here to tell you. It is the finest I've eaten anywhere. Anybody can stay at the lodge. Those members are awesome. They all deserve a pat on the back and support from us. They can and will make a different in this wayward world. We all have stumbled along the path of life. Some people can't seem to get back up on their feet when life keeps punching them in the gut. This place, HeartLand Mens/Womens Recovery Center in LaBelle, Missouri has a hand extened out to help those who reach for it. It's up to you then to get up and walk and then run again. They have provided "The Life Giving Water". it's up to you to drink from it. I promise your life will be forever changed If you allow yourself to grow in Jesus Christ and focus on a good life.
Now this is how I see this program. I do not feel I am far off the reality of this great place. This just may seem like the best kept secret. It almost seems to good to be true. This my friend, IS in my eyes an amazing place. But then, don't take my word. Check it out for yourself. You will be empressed. There is a screening process to get in. YOU HAVE GOT TO WANT TO GET WELL! Getting well requires work that you invest in. Other wise it's a waste of time. Yours and more importantly time they could be doing helping someone else that wants their help. Oh! You know this place is a good place. Just driving in to the main area. Everything is well kept and all the buildings are brick. this is NOT a dumpy place. Built to last and classy!!

I cannot quote a number that would be their success rate. I think it is quite low. That is because most people who go there are true addicts. It's hard to change, and few really do. It is not a mean place at all. They are trying to help people change their lives. My son was there and graduated. He is doing well.

The recovery program is trying to make complete changes in addicts lives. Therefore, it is hard. Change is hard. But success is much more likely at Heartland, than staying at home. My son was there. He has changed for the better and still wants to go to church.

This was nothing like the experience my family had with Heartland. I am sorry that your experience was not good. But Heartland has saved so many drug addicts from death, and brought them to Christ.

Some people don't like it because they don't want to change and give up their addiction. They won't like it at Heartland if they're lazy and won't work. Others won't like it if they are not open to Jesus Christ. So, you can see that many won't like it. BUT if a man wants to change, grow up, become responsible, and become a Christian, Heartland would be a wonderful place for success. My son went there and graduated.
