This place helped me beyond belief. I never thought I would ever get clean and sober! When I put myself into detox and residential I realized a whole new world. I met a lot of great woman in there that I still keep in touch with! Also my counselor, Kayla, was the best thing that ever came to me! She helped through all of it & helped me get clothes for myself that I needed and also gave me some of her own clothes! I appreciate Kayla & wanted to say thank you once again! Also Cheryl , thank you so very much for allowing my son to come have lunch with me and the girls & just showing me the light that I needed. A lot of the staff was so nice and caring and loving! I really loved it there & honestly didn’t want to leave! But thank you Farnum center, you guys saved me and my baby girls life & my sons! I love you all!

This was a "GREAT" experience. The staff was awesome!! The "3 Principle" concept of mind, thought, & consciousness will help me to overcome my addiction; as well as improve my thought process in everyday life. Thanks, Farnum Center!!

I came into Farnum Center with no prior knowledge of rehab facilities. I have tried the AA 12 steps before but this was my first time with a residential rehab program. The 3 Principles teaching is an entirely different way of looking at recovery and mental health. The unique approach teaches you to look inside for all your answers and to not dwell so heavily on the past. It was an incredible learning experience that opened my eyes to new ways to achieve and maintain sobriety.

Great concept and philosophy provided by staff and counselors, different than the majority of facilities. While the foundation of AA is present in terms of nightly meetings and ideas, the three Principals teach clients/guests how to unlock their ability to use Thought to essentially generate a more tolerable reality, helping them overcome addiction and suffering. The facility is also very clean, has a great variety of food for mealtimes, and clients appear to all work together as a fellowship.

I have been to other rehab programs. Coming to Farnum I thought it would be like all the rest of the places I have stayed at. Farnum teaches you about the 3 principals, mind, consciousness, and thought. A thought is a thought, we have approximately 70,000 thoughts a day, they come and go so quickly. You make the choice to act on the thought or leave it with the rest of the thoughts that go through our heads each and every day. I thought I would never get away from Drugs/Alcohol but this place has opened my eyes to a new way to live. If I could tell anyone who has struggled like I have to give the 3 principals a chance I think it could save their lives like it has mine. THANK YOU FARNUM!

This was my first experience at a rehab and I never thought I would have ever stepped foot into one but am I glad I did. They were very welcoming from day one. They have great food. staff is very helpful and very nice. Everyone here works with you and has a genuine care for anyone who steps through the door. They made me aware of three principals I lost a long time ago of MIND, THOUGHT, and CONSCIENCE. I Feel better than I can remember and feel good going onward with my recovery. Thank you Farnum Center for everything.

The residential program was a very positive experience which gave me new tools I am able to use in my daily life to help deal with my addiction. The three principals have opened my eyes to new concepts that I was never aware of, empowering me to make the progress I need to live a healthy, happy, sober life!

I feel this is a very good and helpful program for recovery with a lot of great staff and great fellowship. A few things I really think need worked on is communication between the staff and possibly more training for the counselors and the R.I.'s some of them are a little unprofessional in some ways (letting certain people get away with things or treating people differently) and also I think need to be more one on one counseling sessions and maybe change up the schedule so its not so repetitive. But overall its a great program with friendly staff and I learned a lot. I will recommend it to others.

The Farnum Center is a great place for recovery. One of only a few places in the country that teaches the three principles as opposed to the 12 steps and really gets you to focus on yourself and how your thoughts dictate your lifestyle. Rather than drilling into your head drugs are bad. Staff is very attentive and it really is a good experience, barely felt like rehab. Highly recommend although I won't be coming back :)

I went through detox and the men's residential program here. Overall it was a good experience, I am very happy with all the tools I have learned to maintain my sobriety. Food is great, community is great, most of the staff is great. My only gripe would be that there is some definite inconsistencies with rules and some staff members themselves. Some are very understanding and tolerant, and others won't put up with anything. But once you look past that, this place is great.

before coming to Farnum I was very standoffish and didn't know how to take it, this place is amazing between the staff and the brotherhood I gained here I would recommend it to anyone. The food is very good and beds are comfy.. cannot wait to use what ive learned here and spread the message

I have known the director of the program Cheryl Wilke for years and I am so happy to learn she is heading their team. My youngest brother has battled with drug addiction and I am excited to know this resource is available and I will absolutely be sending people their way.

This my second trip to Farnum. The first was 6 years ago in the old facility. The current facility is much nicer. But the biggest improvement for me is that it is no longer just AA based. They are now teaching the 3 principles (Health Realization) and the Four Agreements. AA is still in the mix but not the sole focus.

This place saved my life, i was at a point about 3 years ago where i should've died. and the judge sent me here. and honestly it worked wonders. i was clean for almost three years. but then i decided to relapse. and now im in a worse spot than i was before and im giong thru hell and hgih water to get back into Farnum, because it's the only rehab I will goto. It's the only rehab I trust to help me catch that which it was I missed for i must've missed something a long the way to relapse this hard. but I know Farnum has what it is i need to get better. Boom.
