Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Roy King during an onsite inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases towards Best Drug Rehab.

Best Drug Rehabilitation is a substance abuse rehabilitation center. Roy King stated the following about his company’s business model, "incorporating as many things within the field of substance abuse into one building. We just don't limit ourselves to a twelve-step model or an MRT (Moral Reconation Therapy) model or anything. We offer a variety of different things to try and connect the individual spiritually, and to [the] treatment."

Leads for Best Drug Rehabilitation are primarily obtained through a call center that they have in Battle Creek Michigan. They additionally utilize on-line marketing. The services process begins when a potential client expresses interest in getting help for their addiction. From that point, Best Drug Rehabilitation will access what program will best suit their needs, and go through insurance to explain the options available to the potential client.


During the on-site interview, Mr. King was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. King expressed the following, "when you're dealing with people from/with substance abuse issues they call a number of places, a number of helplines and stuff like that. So we see they get confused with what they were promised." Mr. King expressed that clients may confuse the services available at various locations, "that's probably the only time that we really get complaints about the level of service is when they thought that we had a swimming pool or something like that and we didn't have it, you know?" In order to remedy this confusion they, "basically handle it the best way we can, and usually within a couple of days they get to know us and see the compassion and the amount of people that are willing to be here to help them and those things pretty much disappear." In addition to empathy with the patient, Best Drug Rehabilitation records all of their phone calls so they can ensure clients that they were provided with the correct information.

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. King explained that the reports were in correlation with an employee who was not following the standard that Best Drug Rehabilitation has set for their employees. The employee in question was terminated due to their actions. In order to further assure future and current clients Best Drug Rehabilitation center is licensed by the State of Michigan and accredited by CARF (commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation).

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. King stated, "all of our counselors are master’s degree or higher...we’re fully licensed in professional individuals."

Best Drug Rehabilitation Center is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "I welcome it. I want people to be able to come in and that’s my key thing and we would have any complaints in the future that’s why we opened the door for you guys… so I think it’s important that we have an open door policy and allow people to come in here if there’s allegations that we’re doing wrong or, you know, not satisfying people’s needs I want to know about it so that we can fix it."


" Best Drug Rehabilitation is one of the top addiction treatment programs in the United States. With it's unique methods, the facility offers more than a dozen modalities, or paths, as well as several extra-curriculars. The treatment is based on client needs and is results based. Stay at the facility can differ depending on individual needs.

Faculty are encouraged to make suggestions for things that can be improved. The Executive Staff are truly interested in implementing any positive changes to the program in accordance with local and state laws. " Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that Best Drug Rehabilitation's past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities.

Best Drug Rehabilitation Center Manistee, Michigan

On the day of December 9th 2012 i arrived at the Best Drug Rehab in Manistee Michigan. My family was told this was a center in which you could choose your own path/program for recovery based on your own religous beliefs. We, as in me and my family where never told that the whole entire program was based on scientology, and to succed you ust complete every aspect of their scientolgy GARBAGE!..

My family was given extrememly false information and lied to as was i about this facility. After further research my family called and demanded to speak with me, while on the phone speaking with my family i told the truth about how a staff member had forced me into believing that my god was actually SATAN! and only hispath was the correct path, and hats the path of the Supreme beings.

This man tried pushing his cultish beliefs upon me and because of the classes required at the facility that caused brainwashing i was verry gullable i began to believe in their teaching's. This was an attemp to destroy my psyche and continue to brainwash me. When i told my family on the phone about this, Adrian one of the counselors forcefully removed the phone from my hand.

Why she did this was because she did not want people to know of their little secret organization they've got going on in this place. My family realized something was very, very wrong when i asked her why she was taking the phone out of my hand and hung it up.

Thank god my family heard me saying this and they realized at that moment that i was telling the truth and exactly what was in the Narcanon books they forced us to read that where written by Ron L. Hubbard the creater of scientology, and that they are also teaching the teachings of Master Fard Muhammad which are So-Called Muslims who belive in the Supreme Wisdom which in my opinion are a bunch of lunatics who believe that their Master alien being will save them in the near future.

At this point my family had drove 12 hours just to get me out of this sickening hell like, cult place. I am currently suffering from PTSD, i am scared because at this i am having a lot of trouble just keeping my train of thaught, i can only hope and prey that this all stops very soon. My concern now is for the people still in their that as we speak are being brainwashed and traumatized. I hope by sharing just a little bit of my experience about this so-called Best Drug Rehabilitation place, more like Best Satan Worshiping Scientology Infested Brainwashing Screwing Live's Rehab.

Thank you for your time i hope my time can really save other people from this hell hole of a place aka The Best Drug Rehab, Shake my head what a crock of sh*!

One Last thing and im being 100% Honest, some people go in and never get out, some people become so caught up and brainwashed the staff has them turn against their families and they have become stripped of their humanity, their personality, and most of all.. their dignity!!!

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I want to validate your experience

AUTHOR: margaux - (United States of America)

POSTED: Monday, December 17, 2012

I just want to share that I went to BDR as a client and a staff memeber. Everything you are saying is true, the lunatics really are the staff there. When I finally broke away from the staff Adrian was Amber's assistant, now she is a counsleor? Place never ceases to amaze me.. I guess they cannot get x-cllients to work there so the staff the place with Nation of Islam convicts who might be nice people, which in my experience they were well intentioned but have no business working in a rehab. There is training that everyone needs to go through and no one there does. And for 25 thousand a client? A county facility would be much better staffed, cleaner and give legitimate training. AA is free and I was told that most of the ex-clients from there end up crawling to AA desperate broke and relapsed. Sorry for your experience there. What happened to me and others at BDR, changed my life. I never again want to be a part of smothing so despicably evil and that was enough to get me to figure out who I want to be. I am now sober and back in school studying to be an addiction psychiatrist. I have kept a very close relationship with my counselor there who quit after BDR wanted me to sit in a chair for 25hours with my eyes open. So the message I am trying to give you is you can use this horrible experience as your bottom and recover. I did so anyone can. And stand up for yourself. File a complaint with the state attorney in Michigan. You can do it on there website. Michigan state attorney is what you type in your searh engine. People are taking action and patterns are what bring quick attention. That helped me, taking a stand and i continue to help people who were victims of this scam find legitimate treatment center.

Best of luck to you in your recovery
