So i recently was a resident of cstar and i was very disapointed when i was released.i was hoping to get out and go back to school and continue my life but when i was discharged somwhere along the line they had me dropped out of school.Mrs. Jesse [[an employee there]] tried to blame that s**t on my mom.oh hell no! when i was put in there they had the understanding that i would have a leave from school and be able to go back and continue with my work sent there from what i did while in treatment. This facility really needs to get their crap together so this doesnt happen to anybody else just trying to get some help.I got everything worked out with my school situation with no thanx to them at all.

C-Star is a big fat joke. They do not help in any way shape or form. They simply make money from putting kids in there and telling them that they are complete fuck ups. The people who work there are no better than the people who go in there. I've heard that many of the people who work there allow kids to smoke pot and cigs at night. I don't think that C-Star should even be here. Its nothing but an eye sore

None of the things written here about CSTAR are true. Not only do the staff work their butts of for these kids, but 99% of the staff really care about the kids and would break their backs to help them. That includes Mrs. Jessie. As far as Mrs. Kelley goes, she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She busts her but off here to make sure these kids have a safe place to stay and rehabilitate. That is total bs that the kids smoke at night. The kids are tested frequently and there is noway that could happen. A kid can only be rehabilitated as much as they are willing to be. If a kid like Simply Me doesnt want to change, nothing the staff can do can change them. That doesnt mean its a bad place.

okay so when i wrote those things i was very upset about my whole skool situation and dont get me wrong i do want to change and i feel that i have been changing.i know im not perfect and neither is anybody else. cstar can rly help people who want it and about mrs jesse..like she says, she only pushed me because she knew i could do it. i do appologize to her and anyone else offended but the smoking thing was not a lie.it wasnt any of the staffs fault except one but they were not employed long trust me.

I know what I heard was true..and he FAILED his drug test while he was in there. I know parents who have had to deal with CSTAR. Its NOT a great place. My insane mother tried to throw me in there while I was pregnant. I got told by a lady there that I needed LOTS of help and that I was a big PROBLEM. Ha. Then turned to my insane mom to talk about how much it would cost to put me in there for 5 months. Plus, they'll throw a kid in there for smoking weed. Any big city rehab would laugh in your face if you tried to put a TEEN in rehab for smoking WEED. Its a plant...non-addictive...used for medical purposes...you can't od on it...and for christ's sake it a damn PLANT. But back to the point...If a kid gets put in there for just smoking weed they tell you all kinds of crazy things....that you'll start different drugs and that you're life will be shit if you keep smoking weed. Weed is NOT a gateway drug..there is no such thing as a gateway drug...only one's own curiosity. I'm not saying that everyone there is bad...but I am saying that the whole idea behind it is bad. If a kid is smoking meth or crack...or doing coke or herion..then YES they do need to be helped. But the things that are done to pot smokers are horrible....some get sent to mental hospitals...others to DYS...and the stupid kids who are smoking meth with their whole family are running around scott free. So in MY opinion...its just a place to throw pot smokers and make money off of their parents.

I feel sorry for anyone who's been brainwashed into thinking that they need help just because they smoked a little weed.

It's okay Keahna...Denial is the first step. Once you get past that its down hill from there. Let me guess...the next thing you will tell us is smoking weed while you were pregnant made your baby healthy right?

Kelly used to looovvveee to go to the bars and get shitfaced. Not my idea of a serious rehab counselor. Hell, one of the employees worked as a waitress at 3 Flags! What a sham.

Bullshit! No rehab counselor should be in a local bar getting trashed.Sorry,jmho!Be the example! Holy crap!!Just like the employee at the adult rehab,always smoking weed and going to Shwag. Wow! Blows my mind that these people are allowed to work around people trying to OVERCOME addictions! Where IS the logic.

Give it up. If you expect these people to admit to any mistakes,hypocritical judgement,or wrong doing....you might as well be waiting for hell to freeze over! They violate hiippa laws and kid's dignity,like it's nothing,too,but noone will admit to any mistakes or being wrong.

Let me guess.....this is a C-Star counselor making this assumption and being rude and VERY unprofessional.No wonder people are bitching about C-Star! Send your kid out of state and really investigate the place before placing them.Some rehabs honestly care and WILL treat your child like a human being without prejudice or demeaning,egotistical power trips! There are true pro and then C Star.

Good point...so why do the courts force kids into rehab like religion around this shithole then?? And then these kids get put on prescription drugs and told they are bi-polar,schizophrenic,etc!! It happens ALL the time! These places make money off of duping your kids into believing they are suffering terrible mental issues! No kid under 18 should be diagnosed period,as a lot of this crap resolves after one enters adulthood. What a bunch of crap. Move outta state or home school...keep your kids out of the circle of WP BS!!

I'm not saying that teens SHOULD smoke weed I'm saying that smoking weed isn't anything to freak out over. But if someone is lazy that's their own fault. There are people out there who are WAY lazier than stoners that don't smoke weed. Being lazy is your own choice. I'd really enjoy it if people would leave my daugher out of there insanity on here. How lame and low do you have to be to put down a baby? But if you must know my daugher is the happiest and most healthy baby you'll ever see.

Its funny, the clients are all angels, and the counselors are all the problems.

There is a reason the little punks get sent there in the first place. Maybe they will grow up and learn to be an asset to the community, or maybe like Keahna they will learn to be nothing more than a drain on society. Its their choice, not anyone elses.

I know a couple of kids that went there, got out and got their crap together. And then I know a number that did not.
