I'm not sure how long ago the other reviewer went to Talbott but it has been years since it was called Talbott Marsh. I went in 2012, and I must say that none of what he said is true. Talbott provided me with transportation to and from the apartments on their shuttle bus every day. If I had wanted my car, I could have had it. We stayed in nice gated apartments off campus with a pool and workout room available. I was able to speak to my family on the phone every day I was there, including Day #1. Family was invited every week for visitation and they had a three day workshop. My family learned a lot about addiction and they no longer looked at addiction as a moral issue but as a medical issue. I had access to email and online banking the entire time. There is computer lab on campus and one at the apartments. I was able to shop at Publix and really anywhere for that matter. The stipulation was that I could not leave the apartments or campus alone. Other patients had to be with me. I was given ample time at night to converse with my wife and children. The only people I saw lose their rights were people that were too immature to follow simple rules. It was about as close to real life as I can imagine a treatment center being.I went in helpless and hopeless and the team at Talbott gave me my life back. I went to Talbott after a failed treatment at another so-called 'great' treatment center. Talbott was light years ahead of the other center. Every single staff member seemed like they really cared about my well-being and recovery. I am a licensed professional, and Talbott stood by me the entire way to re-licensure. My wife and I were talking separation before treatment but now have a strong marriage. As of today, I have been clean for 3 years and 8 months.
