I had a horrible experience at this facility and would never recommend anyone here. When I decided I finally couldn’t stay any longer I had planned to have my ride pick me up at 6:30 and I talked to a staff member there to make sure at that time I would be able to get my phone and personal items and the staff member assured me I would be able to get my items. My ride arrived and not only was the front desk worker very rude to me, she continued to say that I would not be able to get my phone and if I wanted to stay another night , and just get my phone the next day. I was so disappointed since I had literally confirmed with a different employee there that I would be able to get my items. I left the facility and had to drive 45 minutes the next day to pick up my phone. That is incredibly ridiculous I was not able to get my property at the time I signed out. So very unprofessional. 0/10 would not recommend this facility to anyone.

Through my stay here at palmetto these 3 months this staff has been outstanding. If your looking for a treatment center to truly get sober through this is the one. the staff actually cares about you it's not about the money they live a sober lifestyle and they do there best do teach you how to live the same. I would 100% reffer addicts and alcoholics to this facility I'm forever grateful.

Best program of treatment I have been too. Gary (a tech) is amazing. I can’t describe how much he helped me. Shout out to Stuart B - he is going to make a great counselor! Jerry is a hardass but he is exactly who I needed for a counselor.

Palmetto had fundamentally changed my life and I cannot put into words how appreciative I am of both the program as well as the staff. There’s a reason it’s rated within the top 3 in the country. this place has saved my life and I will be forever grateful for the experience. Please do yourself a favor; if you’re in need of treatment for drug and alcohol abuse, try Palmetto. You won’t regret it.

Great experience! I am truly grateful for the Palmetto team and counselors who guided me into a new way of living sober. Thanks to Sean Bryan, the most awesome counselor God specifically chose for me. I would highly recommend this center to anyone who has lost all hope. You will find your way, starting here. It just takes that first step to ask for help.

I found Palmetto at the lowest point in my life but they met me where I was and helped me rebuild my life to better than it's ever been! It is tough work, but sobriety is worth every single bit of it! I trust Jeff, Beck, and all the counselors/staff with my life...they truly care about each and every patient.

I have been able to be completely open and transparent during my time here at Palmetto. This is my 2nd long term treatment and my experience here as been the most helpful process I have had. My counselor Jeff has been honest and forward with his feedback and guidelines for me to follow after my time here. He is also going to continue working with me as I move on to sober living.
Palmetto has the best staff of any addiction recovery center I have attended. They care and will go out of their way daily to make sure you feel your needs are met and your sobriety are being prioritized. They give you the tools you need to live the life of sobriety and will prepare you for any temptations that may lie ahead. 10/10 would recommend to ANYONE.
