Insight House is the biggest farce in the county. They espouse nepotism and have their own agenda to milk the system bone dry. All for their own family's gain. Paul Sr. Would not be proud of what this business has become. Anyone needing drug rehab would be best serve to seek alternatives to Insight House.

<quoted text>What proof do you have
Would personal experience of a family member provide the proof you need? I have an Uncle with a severe addiction to booze. He's actually a wonderful guy with a big heart but is constantly loaded. He not only drink every day, he drinks from sunup to sundown. Our entire family, his friends, his coworkers, basically anyone he comes into contact with soon discovers his addiction. Even his young son knows because he constantly says, "Daddy drinks a lot". When his father is passed out on the couch, "I can't wake Daddy up". Isn't THAT wonderful!

The entire family has begged him to get help, sitting up with him at night and watching him shake with the DTs. It's horrible. Worse, many people are enablers, especially my Uncles "friends", which are nothing but alcoholic drinking buddies.

Due to a custody battle with the mother of his son, my Uncle had to submit to an "alcohol evaluation" at Insight House. The entire family and his friends were excited. Our hope was a councilor would identify his issues with alcohol, report them to the court, and the court would order the help my Uncle desperately needs so he would eventually be granted visits with his son. The outcome was nothing like that.

The councilor must have been asleep at the wheel because she failed to identify any signs of alcoholism and blessed him as a "social drinker". She even missed all the physical signs he presents, such as the fact he's skin and bones, red nosed, and is always trembling (DTs) when not under the influence. It's clear to anyone knowing my Uncle that he's in dire need of intervention.

Anyway, he was granted partial custody as things are and it's been a mess! My Uncle's son is neglected because his father is constantly loaded. I blame Insight House for having NO insight.

Again the "family" has one agenda, get as much as they possibly can, essentially from the county / insurance companies. Look at the board of directors, department heads, and the founder's family members who work there and the positions they hold. Then look at the counselors and their qualifications. One would be best served if one researched other options before committing to this agency who received favorable deals with the county and it's deals concerning the building and service contracts. Sweetheart deals was a term that was used quite frequently when Insight House was dealing with the county and in particular a certain board member serving on the county legislature.

Had a friend go to McPike.....sex drugs AND rock and roll!!!!!! You can pork the chicks, get any drugs you want. Oxys, subutex, amphetamines, hydros the docs give you any drug you want. If you have a tooth ach you can get hydros. They have a music group, you can zone out while you are stoned. You cant smoke but the staff don't do anything about it. He didn't get muchout of it but said there was more drugs there than on the street. Insight house is known for staff having sex with the clients, not paying staff well.

Been there...and MOLLY IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! Once there it's impossible to get out with a clean bill until every drop of insurance and other resources have been drained! The shithole is self serving with no real interest in the benefit of the client. "Reforming" people would cut into their profit margin. Many of the staff are on a power trip, and abuse their "authority" to manipulate people...it's a nightmare...rather than providing hope, they destroy it. My sobriety isn't due to the Insight House, but rather, in spite of the Insight Asylum! I'm grateful there were other options available to me.

Congrats to you, especially for overcoming the uselessness of Insight House to reach your objective.
