I will not recommend this place to anyone. The staff is not competent enough, and the place is a mess. The counselors are also not up to mark. When I was in the institute, there was only a sensible lady who was doing working hard. The nighttime nurses were the best and were always there to help you. If not for them, the place could have shut down long time back.

Wonderful rehab center. The staff with whom I interacted were excellent and were always ready to help, even when it came to pouring one’s heart out.

The program was great, but the excellent part was the food which was delicious. The chefs knew how to address the needs of every person. Many do not give this much importance, but a good food lays the foundation for a good stay. If the program is excellent, but the food atrocious, nobody would be happy which might render the whole purpose of entering the program void.

My three months stay at this place has changed the entire way I look at the world. I was broken, depressed, filled with hatred and did not trust anyone. But the staff at this wonderful place made me realize the importance of having a positive outlook in life. Thanks, Malvern, I am a “new me” just because of you.

I completely agree with this statement. The place offers food that is worth eating. It is not a typical rehab food and tastes excellent. Wish I could get a meal plan from these guys.

My stay at MI was not an epoch-making moment. I had a normal stay, and the programs were also pretty run-of-the-mill. The only saving grace was the staff. Nice bunch of people who cared about the clients.

My counselor changed the way I viewed the outside world. Before entering into this program, my family had given up on me, and I was lonely. Wanting to get my life back on track, I enrolled in their program, and after spending 90 days at this place, I am a changed person. Thanks to Malvern, my family has taken me back, and I am now surrounded by people whom I can trust and look up to.

The best thing that I liked about Malvern is that the staff knows that we are addicts but do not treat us as some jailbirds and do not impose stupid rules. They are friendly and ready to help. God Bless Malvern.
