LVRC was and is a dangerous place and a serious fraud. The chronic pain program they have there is nothing more than a placebo effect. Massage and Reike? Quack treatments, all of them. The doctors, if one could call them that, were mentally abusive towards patients and labeled everyone a heroin addict despite the fact that most chronic pain patients are only "clinically addicted" to opiate pain pills and just require safe, supervised detox and proper physical therapy.
Criminals awaiting trial, and handcuffed to wheelchairs etc. are there to mix in with true medical patients. They will take anyone in. My room was ransacked and I had articles stolen. The staff said tough cookies. Its an insane asylum and everyone is treated like a criminal with no human rights. Its no wonder celebrities go back to rehab so many times--it doesnt work at all...
The rest of the so called "treatment" was just the usual rehab nonsense: religious and cult-like meetings and the notoriously bad 12 steps. The "family outreach program" is just more of the same shame-based, superstitious spirituality, and guilt nonsense they use to treat a hereditary genetic condition.
Beware the staff (Spanish Inquisition anyone?) since most of them are just recovering addicts bent on giving a patient a hard time in order to further their own recoveries. Human nature at its worstthey get their "high" from doing this.
The owner Stuart Smith and his henchman Dr. Mel Pohl are both mental cases, (according to many) and dont care they are running a sham show. The book shop Mr. Smith owns at "The Rooms" is full of quack books and trinkets for any idiot to buy. He does indeed make a profit. He drives a blue Ferrari, typical.
