I gave it 3 stars because the place has a lot of potential but definitely needs some improvements, mainly more staff. First the good, the campus and buildings are pretty well kept, nice looking. Outside of recovery related activities, you can go fishing, work out in the gym, watch tv, smoke in designated areas and they will allow you to bring your musical instrument if you play one. You'll start off in the medical feeling detox building where you will see a doctor, counselor etc.. every day until you're done detoxing. Make sure you're honest about the drugs you have been taking and the amounts, your detox will go a lot better. If you lie they will know by your urine and blood tests so just be up front from the beginning. The bad. Staff/Counselors are late way too often to groups. If you are supposed to start a group at 10am, start at 10am not 10:20 or 10:30. This really got on my nerves because I was always where I was supposed to be and on time and the staff should do the same but they don't. They let the women and men talk. Bad idea!! I have been in treatment other places and women and men weren't allowed to talk to each other. They do a terrible job at this aspect. They need to do more gender specific stuff because it just gets people off track in a hurry and suddenly they are focusing all their attention on another person to fix them, completing ignoring what got them in rehab in the first place. There were people having sex all over campus. Also, a guy brought some Ice in and got some people high. This patient had left AMA a week earlier to go get high, came back, on purpose with drugs because he thought it was cool. Of course then he got kicked out but they need to do a better job of searching people when they come in. Didn't get to go to any outside AA/NA meetings which that needs to change. Overall, If you want to get better this place has some great things to offer if you can get past all the distractions and annoyances. I stayed focused on my recovery but some of things they offer are.... EMDR therapy for chronic pain and trauma. A faith based recovery track if you prefer, good meditation sessions, good AA meetings brought in from outside, acupuncture therapy and a karaoke night on Saturday. They have a cigarette machine that sells smokes and dip. They have a little store that opens twice a day as well with an ATM and things you can buy. But like I said it needs some improvement because they are severely understaffed but anyone that wants to get better can do it here just as well as anywhere else.

It might be cliche’, but this establishment “saved my life.” Let me give shout-outs to Brian and Bob, who professionally helped me. They care. Tom is very helpful, as well. Problems? Yep. Detox is... bizarre, however Liz is a caring and intelligent lady who really made that part of the experience tolerable. The bully that “monitored” the cabin area, and disrespected, changed the temp to freezing for clients (or at least bragged about doing so), and bragged about his wrestling skills to those who were frail and attempting to beat addiction, and slept well while he was supposed to be awake was the only horrible aspect of my stay. Will, the other cabin monitor, was professional, however, so thank heaven for him. Hat’s off to Mirror Lake! I’m beginning the next stage of my life now and it’s due to their counseling expertise.

Mirror Lake!!! Wow!! The most phenomenal change in my life ever to happen. Some 19 months later, I am still clean and sober. Never once had a desire or thought of using drugs or alcohol. The program, staff, and treatment facility is within the confines of the best. All critics usually never stay sober, so don't believe it's not what it claims to be. Get in there, and get the help you need before it's to late. Mirror Lake: "A reflection of recovery!" Thanks for saving my life!! M.J.

I recently went to Mirror Lake for alcohol treatment. I have been to other treatment facilities and this one is excellent. The admissions staff was very thorough and prompt getting me checked in. The program is very in-depth and extensive regarding the topics and types of treatment options available to the clients. The medical staff was very helpful and attentive to working with me. The Counselors are very knowledgeable and caring to every client, giving any and all help they can to get clients on the path of a solid and stable recovery. I felt at home and comfortable at Mirror Lake, the facility is beautiful and give a pure vibe of peacefulness. The food is good and plentiful, never the same old stuff. This place helped me find the person I want to be in life, free of Alcohol and living a life of sobriety that I can enjoy. I would also like to thank Mr. Grady for all his time and work to help those in need, What a great man. Thank you Mirror Lake!!!

I was a Client of this facility recently. I can honestly say, with no qualifiers, that this place truly works miracles! The staff is amazing with the clients. The best 2 counselors it has been my pleasure to work with are both employed here. The tech staff are attentive and caring. The kitchen staff does amazing things considering how many they feed on a three times daily basis. I only met a few of the administration staff, but even they impressed me. The sense of community I experienced here is unparalleled in any other medical facility. The staff treat you like family, and family you become. There could be better communication between staff and family, but considering how many clients are there at any given time (and that the client comes first, period), the communication is adequate. If you have a co-occurring disorder, such as bipolar disorder and addiction, then I highly recommend this facility. They treat both with equal seriousness. And if you have a history of trauma, like I do, then GO HERE!! They take past trauma and PTSD very seriously, and will help you learn to cope with the fallout. Some members of the staff come across as harsh at times, but we addicts need structure if we are to have any hope of recovery. I, personally, fully intend to attend as many of the alumni events as I can. I can not say thank you enough to the Staff and Clients of this facility for all they have done for me, and all they will continue to do.

I really enjoyed my time here. I wanted to stay longer. Everything was great including staff. The only down fall was the food sometimes but they always had a salad bar. Great facilities and great placement. I truly enjoyed my stay and all of the counselors and everyone else.

I loved my stay at Mirror lake. I loved all the staff they really cared about me and my recovery. A lot of the staff members were in long term recovery themselves. Even the counselors! I felt loved, accepted, and cared for while at Mirror lake. Everybody worked hard to see that my needs were met and that all of my needs were going to be met when I left there. If you are struggling as I was call them and get the help you need. It will change your life if really want it.

I can't say enough good things about Mirror Lake. This place gave me hope back. The counselors were great and ever body in admissions help me become comfortable. I had reached out to my sponsor when I relapsed who contacted the Alumni department That called me and I knew him from before. He got the ball rolling and got me in with alot of help from everyone there. They even help me find a sober place to live and set me up with therapist and doctors for when I discharged from Mirror Lake I would have everything in place. I got my life Back! I would give them 5 stars but me being a chef I would have liked a more varied menu. The food was okay but maybe I am spoiled a little. Thanks Mirror Lake!

I can't fully express my gratitude to the staff at Mirror Lake Recovery Center. I came here very fearful that I just simply could not be helped. From the time I was admitted they encouraged me and through a lot of work with my counselors and many groups I began to believe that I could stay clean and sober. I have completed the full stay in treatment and have resumed my life clean and sober. I can simply say that everyone there played a part in helping me get my life back. I am evolved in the alumni program there and attend alumni meetings whenever possible. I through the help of Mirror Lake have learned that true strength comes from asking for and accepting help from others that have walked the path of recovery before me. Thank you again Mirror Lake!

I will recommend this facility to anyone I come across that may need their services. My stay here allowed me to work on myself, made me think, but most of all allowed me to find myself after years of trauma and abuse, alcohol, sex, relationships, food, etc. I am blessed to have been given a chance here and am privileged to have been given a new beginning finally.

It was very beneficial to my growth in recovery. I have come to understand my recovery at a whole new level even after being in the recovery ministry over nine years. The people are very kind and caring. A must for someone ready to get better.

Mirror Lake not only changed my life, it saved my life. Like most who end up in rehab, I was broken. I was at my bottom. I wanted a way out of my drug addiction. I didn't know where to go or what to do. I found a way out at Mirror Lake Recovery Center. My first few days were rough. I trudged through. I decided to "Trust The Process". I accepted where I was and I what I had to do. I did the hard things. I worked for my recovery. Suddenly I began to smile again. I started to see the beauty all around me. There is a lot of it at Mirror Lake. I am forever grateful for my counselors, the clinical techs, the nurses, and especially my fellow rehabbers. These people became my support. My family. I have formed relationships that will last a lifetime. Mirror Lake gave me strength, confidence, and independence. Mirror Lake Recovery Center gave me my life back. If you want help, Mirror Lake has the solution.

This place saved my life, I look at all these reviews and honestly it's what you put into it that you will get out of it. There are so many ppl in there that think it's a joke and don't participate in anything, if you are one of those ppl there is a good chance you will relapse. I went to the meeting there tonight to get my 6 month coin and it's because of the staff and everyone else at mirror lake. Hannah the counselor was amazing also all the nurses were great. The best staff that they have are the techs because you see them the most and are great to talk too all the way from my girl keke, Samantha, coral, Austin, big Andrew, spoon, daisy, Ethan, Alex, and many more. I love this place and would do anything to help them out if they ever needed me.
