I feel the need to respond and rate Arlene after reading that last review. Clearly someone couldn't hack the program. I am with Arlene and in just 9 months the woman has changed my life. I was told I should go to her when I was 2 years sober. I didn't go. Then someone different told me to see this Arlene when I was 5 years sober. I didn't go. Then at 6 1/2 years I relapsed. I returned to the program and after 8 months of agony, someone different suggested I see dr Drake. I gave in. Obviously the universe was sending me a message. She does NOT make people dependent on her and she most definitely tells it like it is. Her program is very difficult and not many people last because the work is intense. We're not trying to deal with surface issues. That's what the outside world is for. The environment is safe and loving and I owe my incredible life to the work. Best money and time I've invested hands down.

Hello to those of you in search of a good therapist. From my POV Arlene Drake is not that person. STAFF poorly, because she doesn't have one. PUNCTUALITY because she is on time but missed a lot of appointments due to personal stuff. VERY UNHELPFUL because in my experience (a friend of mine is a regular patient of hers) she is not really helping him at all. She let him plunge into his trauma without any preparation of coping skills, trigger-response or healthy boundary affirmation for that time. He had a complete melt-down and from my own therapy I know how different it can go. In fact she encouraged my friend in unhealthy behaviors & view points & fed his narcissistic tendency by telling him what he wanted to hear much more than what he needed to hear. I have had warnings from up to 5 people (one a therapist) that clearly stated she makes people dependent on her because she depends on their money. I am sure she is knowledgable but this is just the truth of what it actually happening.
