Miracles Happen Here

“I got the miracle I’ve been praying for! Unbelievable. It’s not like we got our ‘old Jennifer’ back…this is a new person…”

Billy G.


“St. Joseph’s did more for me than you’ll ever imagine. It’s nice to be happy again, it’s nice to get 7/8 hours of sleep without resorting to medication. I haven’t felt this good in 15 years, and my wife and I are finally where we should be after 30 years of marriage.”

Saint Joseph’s is a beautiful facility with caring and knowledgeable staff. The campus is set in the rural mountains and hiking and outdoors activities are available for patients. The nurses provide comprehensive care 24/7. The therapists truly care about their patients and address mental health concerns in addition to addiction. The programing is relevant and applicable. SGI also helps patients to establish an after-care before leaving their facility. The entire staff and patient population feel like a family. Counselor Chase, in particular, goes above and beyond for his patients. He has extensive knowledge of mental health conditions and counsels with compassion and patience.

My experience at St Josephs was a Very Positive experience. My Therapist Emily was by far a great addition to my Life and Recovery. She is a very caring, and understanding Individual that has the Clients best interest at heart. Overall, I would recommend this facility to anyone who is in search of Help.

St. Joe's found a bed for me almost a year ago when I was in middle of "rock bottom." Rehab is to give a fresh start and provide the tools to head back out into the world. That is what this facility provides. I was lucky to get Chase as my counselor, an empathetic practitioner. I really liked the outdoor setting and that the staff let me take my guitar everywhere. It was also a relief to know that I had folks in the administrative office making sure my insurance paperwork was taken care of. I couldn't have gotten clean without this place.

Saint Joe's is a stellar recovery center. I work for another program that sometimes will treat clients on an outpatient level post completing their treatment at Saint Joe's. These clients have nothing but good things to say about their program and their staff. Chase is a vocal point among all of them. They speak so highly of him and how helpful he was throughout their stays. I've worked in treatment for the better part of the decade and I would strongly recommend Saint Joe's as long as Chase is part of their system!

This place is Amazing from the CEO to the clinical staff, They truly care about the patients. I’ve been to a few unfortunately and this is by far one of the best places! I’m thankful I had the opportunity to go. I was really in the need of going somewhere and the people at the VA was off for the holidays. I tried 4 other places and they wouldn’t take me until VA signed off. The CEO said just bring him and we can figure out the rest. I will be forever grateful for SJI!
