AHA A Home Away Addiction Recovery Retreat

I went to a HOME AWAY for 28 days. My sister had researched (too many to mention) rehab facilities....She mentioned this AHA to me, I looked it up on the web and was immediately impressed with the 'so-called' gourmet foods, the massage therapy, etc. I packed my bags and entered treatment at A Home Away, looking for a new start in my life, all that they pack into their introductory statement of their website. Yes, I found the natural surroundings gorgeous and serene, and relaxing...I liked that they boasted only 8 guests at a time . Momentarily I felt cozy as an addict could be. After-all I will get all the attention I need from John Derry right? (That is what he advertises? ) Yeah, No...In 28 days of treatment, John spoke to me one on one for 3 hours. Yep, that's it. Read on.. Long story short, John Dery vacated AHA without knowledge to his 'guests (as he presents them on his website) Yes he supplied a replacement (of which I shall not name) but all hell broke loose at the facility with NO EDUCATED counsellor in charge. All eight guests were abruptedly awakened at 1 a.m. to determine to fate of another guest. (Yes., us ADDICTS were were her judge and jury) Are you farking kidding me??? There is SO much that went on in my stay there I could go on and on... The most important thing is that John Derry employed a man in the role of a councillor.... who was previously a guest at a Home Away. Upon this man's intake, John Derry was fully aware of his sexual demons., however he employed him (after only three months of this man being clean) to be a counsellor to his guests!!!!!!!!! Simply said-DEPLORABLE of JOHN DERRY!..What happened to myself as a result of his employing addicts as counsellors (with less than 3 months of sobriety and knowledge of his past behavior ) resulted in ......(guess) I don't like to talk about it, but anyone who considers this facility needs to know I was molested by one of John Derry's employee's..... John Derry does NOT reach out after you give him his money. He does not follow up with his guests. My sister reached out to him many times after I relapsed of nine months of sobriety, he did not return any of her calls. John Derry gives NO shits after you leave his facility, in my opinion, he is a con artist, manipulative, (an addict himself that struggles for his own identity)..and is ignorant to his staff. It has been 3 years since I attended (ahem) treatment there....All staff I knew Have left, any I have been in personal correspondence with some as to thei reasoning. I have nothing to hide anymore, if you would like to contact me please do so at (including John & Jane Derry) Closing thoughts...more than two thumbs down!
