Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Skipper is a world class addiction leader and an inspiration to the professionals who seek his help, especially the doctors. The program is not perfect but the staff are dedicated and caring. Some residents may have complaints but that's the nature of being semi-confined in a residential treatment program. It works if you work it!

Did not deal honestly with me. Unnecessarily prolonged my stay running into unacceptable cost overruns. Said he would never give up on me then would not return my calls. Staff communications were also curtailed in all likelihood by his instruction.Offered to testify on my behalf without being asked regarding previous substance monitoring irregularities then would not return calls. Fabricated conversations between himself and my personal physician in attempts to manipulate.
