I never leave reviews on here but this place saved my life and if you are feeling as hopeless as I was then please give this place a shot. I've been to multiple treatment centers over the past 10 years and this place hands down has changed my life!! That being said, of course I was skeptical at the beginning, but Nikki spent 2 hours on the phone with me, and I felt like she actually cared. In the past I felt like they just wanted my money or I was just another caller on this phone, but this time it felt different. Who knows, maybe it's because I was ready, or maybe because this place is special. Honestly I received better care from the medical staff (especially Tab) and the pysch team (shout out to Emily) then I have from any of my home providers. I felt like the entire team really listened to me. My therapist was patient with me, and made me feel safe, something I haven't felt at any of the other places I had been. I can't say thank you enough to everyone here. When it was my team to leave I cried, felt like I was leaving family, but I'm excited to venture out on my own a kid, be a mom, and a positive role model in my community. Thank you Cottonwood! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I came to Cottonwood for treatment of alcoholism. It is the best decision I have ever made. The program here is very thorough and helped me become the best version of myself. I left here with tons of tools and resources to help with my recovery at home. Anyone struggling with addiction or mental health should definitely reach out to Cottonwood. Thanks to Cottonwood, I can live the true life I have meant to live.
Cottonwood saved my life, and I don't use that phrase lightly. I came in here believing there was no path forward and the staff, therapists, and other clients here showed me that I was worthy of love and worthy of a full, happy life. I will forever be grateful for this place and this community.
Cottonwood saved my life! I had the greatest therapist named Meridith Cohen. In one of our first meetings, I spent forty minutes absolutely sobbing in her office. She told me she loved me and then demonstrated it again and again over the next five weeks. She has an advanced expertise in recovery - both from personal experience as well as from years of professional experience. She genuinely cares about each and every one of her patients. Most importantly, she is both challenging and supportive while conveying her extensive knowledge base.
Whatever term you want to use -- treatment, recovery, rehab -- it's hard to review something like it in terms of stars and give an objective comment. Cottonwood is good at what it does, but it lacks in individual focus without strong self-advocacy from the attending patient. While you must go into recovery with an open mind, you must also have some prior knowledge about treatment, your past trauma, and your core belief systems so as to not get lost in the shuffle. They will work with you, but you must make sure you are heard by the staff and not waste a second of your time on campus. There is something truly healing about the desert and being around people with similar stories, but a facility cannot do the work for you. You must do the work yourself.
