These reviews and the people writing them are so misleading. People that left AMA, family members being manipulated by their children... This place saved my life. On top of that they cared. People are pissed because this place doesn't hold your hand or coddle you. Life isn't easy and it isn't fair and this place tries to prepare you for that. If you want a chef and a personal trainer go to Passages. If you want to learn how to live clean - come here. They taught me the in's and out's of the Twelve Steps. How to go to a meeting, raise my hand and ask for a sponsor. To leave my ego at the door. They taught me that my best ideas got me high and that maybe it was time for me to shut up and take suggestions from people who have actually been able to stay clean longer than the time it takes for my dealer to answer the phone. The detox here was great. I didn't HAVE to attend the meetings the first couple of days but after about 48-72 hours they started to suggest and then strongly SUGGEST I SHOULD go. That it would help to get on my feet and that it would help to speed the detox process up. Not to mention so that I could get all the help I could why I was there. Not just physically but mentally and spiritually. The guy that said it's a MILE walk between the barn and the cafeteria is a f-ing jackass! You walk across a freaking little parking lot for God's sake. It's like 30 feet at MOST. The food is okay. Not the best but not the worst. It's definitely nowhere close to jail food. Plus your in rehab. This is not meant to be a 5 star hotel. When I was there I had a room I shared with one other guy with a desk, under bed drawers and a closet that ALL locked with the padlocks we were given and STRONGLY encouraged to use. You are sharing space with fellow addicts that may be much worse off or much less ready to get better. Things WILL go missing if you are not diligent. The whole time I was there the only people who had things stolen were people who were too lazy to lock their belongings up because they didn't want to take the time to unlock the locks when they needed their things. Your told every morning to take what you need because the rooms will be locked for safety. They don't want people who may be withdrawing from benzos or alcohol to start feeling ill then run off to their room and have a seizure and hurt themselves and not get the immediate care they need. That's why your locked out. So staff can always have a constant eye on you. Btw there are cameras EVERYWHERE. Just because you can't see the nurses doesn't mean they are not watching. That's what they do in the locked back room by the dosing line. It's filled with a huge CCTV bank/medications. When I was there we had a volleyball tournament for everyone who was medically cleared, a chess tournament, movie night on Friday, talent show on Saturday. Many groups, speaker sessions by both techs in recovery and outside speakers, in house AA or NA meeting, an outside meeting on Sunday (they came to us). I did only see my counselor for a one on one 3 times but this is a 28 day program! In what world do you have an hour session with a counselor more than once a month? The first time I met him we set up a treatment plan, the second we had an hour session and the last time was my aftercare plan where he single handedly convinced me to go to a 90 day half way house which solidified my long term recovery. They worked hand in hand with the aftercare plan we set up to achieve the things I wanted out of my recovery. Getting my family back, becoming self sufficient, staying clean for longer than a few days, learning how to live like a normal person without having to be high, etc. I could go on but there's no point. It all boils down to this: No one will get clean until they are ready to get clean. An addict will get high on the moon and can stay clean in a shooting gallery. You just have to be ready and this place is a great start in learning that. I now have 4 years clean, am a certified recovery specialist and I'm starting my first semester towards becoming a D&A counselor. It works.

I attended Bowling Green Brandywine in summer of 2018. They have by far the best and most comfortable detox unit. During ur detox you stay in a brand new, clean, quiet and comfortable building. While detoxing it’s mandatory to get your vitals checked every 4 hours. These other places will turn on lights n wake u up unpleasantly, then force you to walk down two floors, to wait in line in a cold hallway, half awake and sick.... At Bowling Green Brandywine they come to you while ur in bed and try not to wake you while they take ur vitals, it’s a blessing. Also in detox u get cereal, juice, sandwiches and fruit available all day. There is 2-3 people per room but u have plenty of space as well as central AC and heating so u don’t have to worry about ur roommate making it to hot or cold... plus each room has a bathroom/shower (u appreciate that when u move into the rehab buildings and u share a bathroom/shower with an entire floor of girls) You get to smoke whenever you want, and I was lucky enough to have had a great group of people all in detox so it was actually fun & comfortable. You have access to a washer & dryer for detox only so u never have to wait and can keep ur eyes on ur clothes.. you get to eat all meals first and only detox could have optional seconds. The nurses are super sweet and nice and really care about making sure you’re as comfortable as possible . It was the best detox experience I ever had and would definitely go back. Now... as for the rehabilitation part of BGB... it’s definitely polar opposite of the detox part. Once you move from ur nice new building, u either get put into an old probably haunted mansion or the old motel. Mostly all the guys live in the motel, 4 guys to a room that was made for 2 people in 1 bed. The motel rooms are gross, moldy carpet and very small, outdated bathrooms. The mansion where the females stay is also obviously old and moldy, they shove 5/6 girls in a room and basically whoever sleeps next to the ac unit controls it. You get locked out of ur rooms from 915am-430pm because they are understaffed and can’t keep tabs on everyone the campus is quite large. The groups are held in “the barn” and if it’s summertime—- good luck bc there’s no AC and once everyone is in there it’s like 110 degrees. All that a side, you get to hang out with whoever you want which is beneficial to someone like me bc I don’t get along with girls so I was able to make some great guy friends I still talk to today. Small group with ur counselor i found most helpful and the few staff in charge of setting you up with after care are super helpful and patience. The food is a 5 out of 10, ice definitely had better but they have vending machines you can buy chips, pretzels, candy & soda. Also it’s very hard for anyone to get in contact with you while you’re there, you can only make calls while in an appointment with your counsel, or you can use the pay phones which cost money and are only turned on for short amount of set times. Is BGB the worst rehab ever? Not necessarily, no. You can learn a lot while having a good time but I suggest coming for detox only then transferring to somewhere with updated rooms to live.

This was my first rehab and I can't wait to relapse and go back! Summer camp for junkies, yes! The food was so bad I lost 10 lbs and now I can wear whatever I want, yes!! Loved all the scumbaggery. Also, I met the man of my dreams there!

Wow! When I got to Bowling Green I thought, "What a zoo." Come to find out the zoo was inside me. Had time's when I felt like such a outcast. Come to find out those where my greatest moments of growth. Thank God and then BGB for helping me save my life. Ms. Teresa, Counselor Joe, Mike, and Jim, Ibrahim, Darrin, Angel... I could go on. You get out what you put in. Period.

I didn’t go to Bowling Green personally but a loved one did. He spoke very highly of his counselors and learned some things about himself through the group therapy sessions. I am very pleased to say that he is going on 7 months clean. Thank you Bowling Green !!!

I was desperate to get help and Bowling Green took me immediately, came and picked me up and had me there in an hour. I cannot say enough good things about the staff, the nurses were kind and professional, the techs,especially Sam, Donavan, Darrin,Brandy and Alexis all would do anything they could to help the residents, the counselors run small groups where you get great information to help you and they all really care. My counselor Sarah was so helpful and understanding and treated me with dignity and respect. This program won't make you or your loved one stay sober, that's up to you, but they help give you the skills you need to move to the next level. The staff and director care, and the food is good, so I would recommend BG to anyone who needs help, it is what you make it. Thanks to all the staff and residents for helping me fight for my life and showing me what's important. Thanks Alexis for caring and understanding and all your help!!!

All of these horrible reviews really give someone a bad taste if they're left with no where else to turn. I had to get into a rehab immediately, and Bowling Green came through the first day. I, however, was extremely skeptical after reading all of these negative reviews. Addicts in early recovery are a furious bunch, I suppose! I had a great experience at BGB. Sure, there wasn't as much one-on-one as i'd hoped, and the psych was a little too lax with what he was prescribing, but I learned alot about myself and my disease during my 33 day (28 plus detox) stay. My counselor was not one to beat around the bush, and although I thought some of the gender groups were a bit ridiculous, I still enjoyed some of the activities that were scheduled. Every night there was a Hospitals/Institutions meeting, where an outside speaker would come in and share their experience, strength, and hope. This was easily my favorite of the scheduled meetings each day. The campus is a wide open area with a great view of the golf course, including a pond full of ducks and geese. Way too many bees during the summer though. They rarely sting, but they never seem to leave you alone. The staff is very lax about your whereabouts, as long as you're in the groups on time. The rooms in the motel (mens quarters) smell very musty, but the water pressure in the showers is amazing, and it was nice to have our rooms open all day just in case we wanted to grab something or spend some time alone. I have absolutely no complaints about the staff. Even the staff that aren't in recovery are really informed and openly care about the residents. The entire time I was there, I witnessed one argument escalate into nearly a fistfight, which is a much better track record than other places i've been. There's also a resident run talent show every saturday night, which is definitely one of the highlights of the stay. Anyway, don't take all of the negative reviews to heart. Most of them are exaggerated, and probably written by people who just want to blame their own problems on something else. Believe me, there are far worse places to be, especially if you're really trying to better yourself. This place is a piece of cake. A mini-vacation. But also, a serious program that gives what you put in. Thanks Bowling Green.

counselors and tech staff are great. management is very unorganized. mold and mice in rooms. if they would take care of the problems (they are fully aware of but do nothing to fix) the place would be great
