The Watershed Rehab Reviews

I have been trying to address each comment personally, but it is proving to be impossible. The site set-up is also not that easy to do so, but I wanted to make sure that I addressed everyone’s concerns. If anyone would like to speak with The Watershed directly, we encourage you to contact us at 1-800-861-1768. I would first like to let everyone know that we are BBB accredited, and we are licensed by the State of Florida’s Department of Children and Families to perform addiction and substance abuse detoxification for alcohol addiction. We offer intensive inpatient residential drug and alcohol rehab, as well as prevention services . We have been an addiction treatment industry leader for over 15 years in South Florida. If you are seeking treatment and are nervous about The Watershed because of these comments, I would invite you to check out our reviews on Google which seem to contradict the Topix reviews greatly https://plus.googl e.com/117320674860 468530561/about?gl =us&hl=en I would also like to encourage you to like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/w atershedrecovery so that you may see what we are really about. For those who felt they were somehow wronged, I hope you will call us so that we may work out some sort of resolution. Thank you.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #36)

As a current employee of The Watershed, I have not had this experience nor have heard about it from other employee's currently working here.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #35)

Hi Ashley, We would like the opportunity to discuss further about your dissatisfactions; we can always be reached at 1-800-861-1768. I do have a few comments in response to your post though. Since we are an addiction treatment center treating people who suffer from drug addiction and alcoholism, the safety of our patients is our primary concern. This being said, we do take care to make sure that they are being carefully watched during detox as people can die from detoxing off certain drugs. We do not take detoxing a patient lightly. We will take every precaution to ensure each patient is safe. We do place some belongings in a safe place for a number of reasons. 1. Many addicts/alcoholics will want to drink and use during the treatment process, they may use certain devices (like phones and computers) to seek outside resources (i.e. drugs/alcohol) to get drunk or high. We need to protect all our patients from this. It may seem unfair, but we have been treating addicts and alcoholics for over 15 years and we have the experience that tells us what has been most successful for our patients long-term recovery. 2. We don’t want our patients to have to worry about anything else but their recovery and this is helped by refraining from engaging in outside stressors. 3. We do not want our patients to lose any of their valuables and create more chaos in their recovery process. 4. Addicts and alcoholics by nature are great at manipulating a situation in order to get out of something (I should know, I am an Alcoholic who wanted to leave treatment too), holding on to a Driver’s License, or even a phone, could stop an addict/alcoholic from leaving treatment to go get drunk or high. We care that much about our patients that we want to help them through the phase of wanting to “jump ship”. A few hours can literally mean life and death when it comes to an addict/alcoholic wanting to leave treatment too soon. Each patient is treated with dignity and respect, but we are treating addicts and alcoholics who by nature are sensitive. I encourage you to read one of our latest blog posts about addiction treatment vs. prison: https://www.thewat ershed.com/blog/ad diction-treatment- facilities-prison- or-paradise/ I hope that you will take the time to maybe look at treatment differently. It would be a shame for someone to read this post and not get help because of it.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #33)

I am an alcoholic/addict myself. I have also been to multiple treatment centers in the past. Some were great experiences, some were not. I do not regret my path nor am I angry with any of the treatment centers I have been given the privilege to have attended I know there are many suffering addicts and alcoholics that never get the chance to get clean and sober. Each facility served its purpose of helping me get sober and not die while I was getting drunk and using. I can understand and appreciate that you are upset, but isn’t it you now that may stop someone from getting the help that they not only need, but deserve? If you would like to talk to one of our addiction professionals here at The Watershed, we would be more than willing to discuss your concerns, 1-800-861-1768.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #32)

Hi Rad, I am not sure of your specific situation, but I would like to just point out that most successful cases of people staying clean and sober long-term are from those who continued their full treatment. I can speak from experience of my family enabling my behavior and allowing me to leave treatment early. I was drunk within 7 days. The second time I went to treatment, I have been sober ever since. I hope you take the opportunity to call us and talk about what is going on so that you may help your wife on her journey in recovering from addiction. Addiction affects the family too. 1-800-861-1768.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #31)

I am an alcoholic myself. When I was fully willing and ready to get clean and sober nothing could stop me. If you were felt like you were mistreated, I encourage you to call us back and hopefully come to a resolution. Addiction is a disease, and it’s a disease that will tell us people are mean or that life is not worth living, please do not let your own thinking stop you from getting clean and sober. I hope you give us a call today, 1-800-861-1768.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #30)

Hi Zombie Apocalypse, I am sorry you somehow feel your treatment was inadequate. However; that being said, the information you have provided is inaccurate. Every patient of ours is treated based on their specific needs. Sometimes, the symptoms of the drug and/or alcohol addiction may conceal the symptoms of a mental illness or vice versa. This is why we offer a dual diagnosis program here at The Watershed. Not everyone is dual diagnosed, but many addicts/alcoholics do suffer from other mental health issues besides their addiction. One of our onsite physicians will render a “dual diagnosis” when the patient is both a drug or alcohol addict and also exhibits signs of an additional psychological disorder or psychiatric disease. When dual diagnosis is the medical finding, it is imperative that both the drug or alcohol addiction and the mental illness be treated concurrently at a rehabilitation clinic because this scenario can make relapse more prevalent. It’s imperative to The Watershed that we treat each of our patients with the best possible care when it comes to healing from addiction. If you would like to speak with us further, we encourage you to please call our helpline at 1-800-861-1768.  (Apr 16, 2013 | post #29)
