Initially I had a wonderful experience at Palmetto. Sean, Julie and Phillip were particularly supportive of me but my interactions with all of the counselors were positive. Sometimes positive and supportive required tough love and negative consequences but that's what I needed. My second visit was a negative one, that's when I met Leila. She was unnecessarily accusatory, unaccountably hostile and actually called me a liar on my way out the door. Ultimately I agreed with the recommendation resulting from this visit, with one exception. Leila's detective work seemed to yield the fact that I produced a forged letter in an attempt to (presumably) hide the fact that I took Sudafed. She was wrong. I was guilty of the erroneous assumption that my Sudefed positive was a missed test. I cannot imagine how her blatant contempt for me could be in any way therapeutic or helpful. My eleven months of sobriety went out the window the very day I left. I can't blame anyone but myself. If I had done everything I was supposed to then I could've handled the stress. Now that I am back on the wagon and doing EVERYTHING within my power to follow Palmetto's recommendations, I'm filled with nothing but hope for a far better future than I would have had without them. I will never forget Sean's gentle kindness or scathing sarcasm accordingly. Julie's empathetic wisdom, Phillip's calm acceptance and encouragement. The funny thing is that I flunked out of treatment and may never work as a nurse again (through my own actions) but I am on a profoundly spiritual journey of recovery and self discovery, self actualization a goal rather than merely a concept. I credit Palmetto with preparing and starting me down this path. The bedrock upon which Palmetto stands is a wonderful team of kind, loving, competent and fair staff. All exceptional people who will connect with and help you in their own special way. I sat in Mary Anne's office for two hours while she advocated on my behalf with the insurance company, knowing I had the money to pay for treatment. Sharee would gently coax a smile out of me just when I needed it. Kim's beautiful smile and kind disposition told me she cared about me. Becky's enthusiasm and cheerful singing made the med line fun. Tanya was informative, helpful and encouraging. I couldn't see it at the time but everything we did had a valuable purpose.

I went to Palmetto for an evaluation in 2013. I definitely needed it. I did my best to avoid responsibility and try to get out of doing 90 days. There was no slipping through. I had a good and dedicated therapist during my 3 days named Jeff. My problem was during the exit. The lady who gave me the results, I felt, was abusive. I make up that she felt the need to hammer denial out of my brain. She was breaking it to me that basically, my world was coming to an end. It is a vulnerable time and it could have been handled with greater empathy. I was angry about it for a long time. In any event I went somewhere else for treatment, mostly because of that conversation. I will make 4 years sober in May and my life is on track again. My career is going well but I have to pay careful attention. I do not mean for this to be vindictive but I do need to get it off of my chest. I have friends that did treatment at this facility and are doing great. Likewise they have no complaints. This is coming only from my experience.
