The staff were helpful and attentive. I began the program during its second month of being open so there were invariably minor logistical issues due, I'm sure, to the new opening and new staff, yet by the end of my stay most of these had been improved or at least addressed. I had an excellent counselor who helped me tremendously with addressing my mental health issues as well as relapse prevention and trauma. The program was a 60 day inpatient drug and alcohol program, which I was unaware of initially, but in the end was grateful for. I would recommend Avenues.read less
