Twelve Step Coercion and ineffective faith healing (with drugs!)

I checked into the Willough in Naples, FL on August 28, 2012, my birthday. I finished reading the big book and attended all scheduled meetings. A typical day at the Willough consisted of sitting in a classroom in a modified 7-11 store and filling out pamphlets. We were seldom given time with medical staff and counselors. We were told to conduct AA meetings in the evenings.

These meetings were self proctored. There was a tech who would occasionally come in and make sure we were reading the literature. I found this therapy completely ineffective.

On one evening at the Willough, I decided to take a nap during the meeting hour. I was told to attend the evening AA meeting or I would be written up because: “If you do not attend, we cannot bill your insurance” There was active prescription trading among the patients and several were sent away or arrested after failing drug tests and trading suboxone. I recall two patients who were caught having sex in the laundry room of the renovated 1950’s hotel we called home during our incarceration.

I felt like an animal. We all felt like caged animals. During lunch hour, a truck delivered a rather unimpressive array of lunch meat sandwiches. For recreation therapy we bounced a beach ball back and forth.

I graduated and received my Willough AA medallion. I was told to immediately start a 90 in 90 as the prior meetings I had attended did not count.

I was a patient of Willough at Naples twenty years ago. Self-committed under threat of termination from my employer. Health insurance paid for everything. I was addicted to alcohol and crack cocaine. Every day I went to classes and meetings where I learned about the “diseases of alcoholism and addiction” and my need of a “Higher Power” Higher Power was a term they used for God, that was vague enough to keep everybody happy. At night we took a van out to either AA or NA meetings. I was constantly told I needed a Higher Power, whom they called God.… Read more »
I am writing this in 2016. I am writing this four years later. It may be six years later. I was in the eating disorders treatment center in Florida. If they are anything now like they were and you were thinking of going don’t. I came home from it and my therapist said that I had gone backwards years. There was a group of anorexic women who were CRAZY and bullies. The Willoughs did nothing about it . We had 13 people in our group and the therapist was in love with one of the anorexic women. It was absolutely… Read more »
The bad reviews at the of the willough is because these people didn’t get a bunch of dope prescribed like they were after or one of the ones who nobody liked . Anyway I’ve been there a few times and if you follow the rules and attend all groups there is a lot of recovery to be had. There is bull s**t that does happen but that goes on everywhere when you choose not to behave plus the staff are only so many and can’t patrol each person 24/7. Rehab is what you make it. If you want you will… Read more »
I was going to check into the willough, but when all the contracts were signed they brought me into a room for strip search, I told them I do not consent to strip searches !! I searched myself right in front of them wearing a very thin dress shirt that buttons up and a very thin pair of surfing shorts, I plainly showed them I had no needles or razors or weapons, they still insisted on the strip down search, I thougt it was totally sick and demented, this is not a f****n jail ? or is it? I was… Read more »

We actually do not allow clients to have their cell phones either. Both male and female clients must undress infront of another staff member in order to reduce/prevent drugs from coming into the facility.

I barely got home alive from there a few days ago . I was traumatized , hurt tortured and don’t know what or if I should anything . Someone please help me .

Can anyone just sign themselfs out? I have a family member there.

i was a patient there, went for detox was told thats all i had to do, from a physical dependicy on opiates in which i didnt abuse, was told i have t0 stay 28 days which was only originally told id have to stay 7, while my stay, there were many incidents in which i am disgusted, place is filthy miskept just plain ole’ dirty and gross, the kitchen staff are rude and always yelling at patients, the staff seemed friendly at first untill you got to know and understand them a bit better, they messed up medications constintly and… Read more »
I have been to the Willoughs on a couple seperate occasions once through the visions program. Any co-ed facility will have problems with sexual contact. When your body detox’s you suddenly start feeling again and not everyone can control themselves hence being addicts. Soboxine is used within moderation as Dr. Baldzi wont prescribe more then 2 8mg a day. Most individuals that go to the Willough are repeat visitors but this is because addiction is an extremely difficult disease that takes daily work to stay on top off. Not everyone is lucky enough to only become ‘physically dependent” You also… Read more »
