If you need luxurious facility to get sober, then you're doing it for someone else. We all know how that turns out.

I also went to McPike. I was a drunk for 30 yrs. it was the best thing that happened to me. You can get sober anywhere if you want it. McPike was hardcore but real. Sober 11yrs. in AA.

Yes, they do have visitation. It was on Sunday afternoons and for a short time one night a week (don't remember what night) after a support meeting.

I completed/graduated the treatment program there. They didn't have a Psychiatrist, as suggested on their website, and only 1 Psychologist. Their Alcohol/Drug treatment is adequite. Their mental health treatment is not ! I didn't leave feeling any more 'mentally healthy' than my arrival. The phone access is extremely limited causing me financial difficulties upon returning home. I would not recommend going for mental health problems.

A.A. is like a cult...if you want quit something bad enough you will..stop all the mumbo gumbo "steps" crap and do it....use your good friends and family to support you....if you don't have "good" supportive friends or support from family ..then I suggest A.A.......also detoxification is very must detox in a HOSPITAL setting first....then decide from there...btw...people who down right make up there mind to quit or cut back..whatever..are the ones who make I said A.A. is nothing but a "CULT"

I found at AA meetings all are a bunch of closet drinkers who leave the meeting to go out drinking and talk about everyone that was at the meeting. Never Again!

McPike is a joke for anyone with a true drug addiction. My little brother had been in and out a few times. I went to drop a few books to him on one day and accidentally turned up the street right next to the rehab house, right on the other side of the fence. It's a dead end road with only a couple of houses on it. I had to turn at the end and watched a drug deal as I was turning. Now, I understand this happens all over, but right next to the rehab? If you have to remain in Utica, I would prefer Insight.

Another time he'd checked into the facility I called to ask a good time to drop of a few clothing items for him. In a 2 minute conversation with the woman that answered the phone, along with asking for a good time to stop, I simply expressed I was getting a little fed up with dropping things off for him. I later found out she'd gone to him and told him I said he was a 'piece of shit junkie and I was tired of doing everything for him'.

My little brother recently lost his battle with addiction and McPike certainly isn't to blame for that, however the woman that said those words to him is the piece of shit in my book.

Yeah mcpike is a joke ... don't go there and try and get help with your drug addiction. . Won't do u any good. If you're really ready to stop and get help you can do it be strong rehab is not always the answer. . You have to have the ability to want to do it... be strong. ... u can do it. .. don't go to mcpike

Sex in the stairwells.... do they get drugs in there too?? i was told it was strict, guys and girls separate at all times. separate housing. and random urine screenings.
Yea guys and girls are together in daily grps, and meals etc.. THE ONLY TIME MEN AND WOMEN ARE SEPERATED IS IN THEIR SLEEPING QUARTERS. I went here back in 2011.. ive been clean and sober for 5+ years.. if one wants to be sober bad enough.. they will do whats expected of them and not go along with the "bad eggs " yes there was guys and gals having sex in the mop closets and stairwells ETC.... but i wasnt there for that. I was there to figure out how to live everyday w/o putting a needle in my vein loaded with dope. The program works if YOU WANT IT TOO. Its the mandated ones .. and the ones who have zero desire to get clean and sober.. that give mcpike a bad name! Jail/prison is a better suited environment for them.. IN MY OPINION.
