""This is NOT your typical rehab - it's more like a home away from home in a private, beautiful home that happens to also have a clinical team that can help you build the sober life you deserve. By the time you leave NorthStar you'll inherit a new family of people who genuinely care for you.""

""This is not an institution-like place. A caring, family-like staff that will do anything for you. Not a ton of rules, and mostly everyone abides by mutual respect. The on-site doctor, Dr Meza, is a compassionate, attentive guy who genuinely cares. The rest of the staff is equally caring. There are alway people to talk to, and friendly long lasting advice (if you want it). If you’re serious about finding a nice place, nice accommodations and nice people… this is it. Also, doctor owned- important!""


""I have worked at many treatment centers before but NorthStar Detox is by far the best place I have worked. The staff are well trained, the facility is beautiful, and the treatment of one's stay is personalized with careful thought. This place is a great stepping stone to building a solid foundation for recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.""
