    review rating 5  What I really liked about Apex Rehab is: 1) The small and personal groups, the group leaders were really focused on me the entire time (everyone is on a "first name basis"). 2) The one on one therapy sessions were always nice to talk about daily feelings and were very conducive to making decisions. 3) Couple's/family therapy was very helpful for my relationships with family and my girlfriend. 3) Being able to go out to A.A., N.A. and S.M.A.R.T. groups in addition to treatment at Apex, also Being able to go the local gym everyday was really nice and conducive to me feeling good on a day to day basis. (Leaving the house is always nice, when you're early in recovery you tend to get bored pretty easily, at least I did.) 4) The chef was excellent and respected that I did not like certain foods and usually made me something else when I did not like what everyone else was eating.

  • review rating 5  I highly recommend this treatment center. The staff was wonderful with helping detox (giving the right medication, watching for any issues, dealing with emotions and physical responses). Then we started to look at the underlying root cause of my alcohol addiction. This was the real impact to my recovery. The final step of creating a good plan for outside of the center helped me prepare for the real world. I really feel confident that I now have the tools to be sober outside of the center. Lastly, the facility is awesome... wonderful chef, comfortable rooms. swimming pool, and access to a gym. You will love this place!

    review rating 5  My Thanks and gratitude to APEX for their exemplary program. The environment was most conducive to my goal of sobriety. The beautiful home on Mt. Helix is physically attractive both inside and out it is clean, spacious and offers it own serene vibe. The therapists are nothing less than highly educated professionals. All staff displayed compassion, concern and a willingness to ensure comfort. The food was over the top, I had individual dietary needs and the amazing chef assured all these needs were met- Thanks Chef James! All group sessions were highly relevant to my recovery and included: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and a newer therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. My issue was not my drinking, but why I drank. I was highly assisted in discovering personal issues to address in order to remain sober and improve my mental, emotional and physical health. The team met me where I was at in these areas and provided the information and education I needed. Most helpful to me was learning just how much I needed community in my life, which started at APEX. There were six other individuals in the program with me, which allowed for much needed individual attention and therapy. Thank you again APEX for the care and education which was entirely relevant to my ongoing sobriety.

  • review rating 5  I came to Apex from another facility at the request of my wife and found the recovery I needed and had been looking for. The staff are all respectful, ethical and helpful. No matter where you go, it is up to you as an individual to find your path toward recovery. If you have it within yourself to truly try to understand who you are deep down as a person, there is no better facility than Apex. I am forever grateful to the staff for providing me with the tools and resources to be a contributing member of society and can't thank them enough for the peace and happiness sobriety has brought to my life, family and friends. I was a broken human being that was provided with the opportunity to explore myself as an individual and wouldn't have been able to do it without the amazing staff at Apex. Keep up the wonderful work!

    review rating 4  I recently did the inpatient program at Apex for an almost two week stay. The clinicians, staff and therapists were really great and helpful. I definitely learned a lot from them about myself. They all work with you and provided great support when needed. The only thing I would like people to note is that the pictures are a bit outdated and the houses don’t really look like the pictures shown on the site. During my time there there was no Equine therapy or music therapy which is something I was really looking forward to doing when I chose Apex over other rehab facilities. Overall my stay was good mostly because of the therapists I learned from and the friendships I made there.
