This progam is horrible I know it from experience. Do not be fooled that "God brought you here for a reason" ...please do yourself that favor. Religion is used as a tool to brainwash people into doing what McKenna tells you to do while in the program. He wants your money and could care less if u stay sober or not''.. so long as you pay him. Ive seen him treat people like dogs and drop them off at homeless shelters and make them walk if they don't want to be in the program any more. The living conditions would make any sane man insane. The only way he keeps his clients is if they're facing more time in jail or if they're horribly brainwashed into his insane version of christianity. I reiterate MORE time in jail. I'm a prime example. I was facing WAY MORE time in jail or woulda left to BE IN JAIL. Jail is better that the Jericho house, trust me. McKenna treats you like an animal once you sign that paper. Dont be fooled. He will humiliate anyone on that stool and, trust me, it's not to "save your life". It's to satisy his own inferiority complex. He loved picking on one client by not allowing his sister to buy him a pair of pants...he made him wear ONE pair of jeans every day and wash that ONE pair of jeans ONCE a week. Everyone else coulda had a wardrobe. He did it b/c that one particular person was overweight and got a kick out of it b/c he is a skinny mustached peice of trash. A despicable human being. That was just one example...there's millions more..it's unbelievable the way he interprets the Bible to justify his evil acts such as having everyone on food stamps yet feeding us donated food. We never got to use our food stamp cards ourselves. That leads me to the question: where was our food stamp cards really spent? I'll admit Jay did spend some of the stamp cards on eggs and other necessities but most of the food eaten was donated expired Trader Joe food...it was good the ...about the only thing in the program better than jail. Anyways folks : Do Not Be Fooled that "God brought you here for a reason" . Please...esp if u r a parent with a child in jail and wants your child to get better. I promise you it will make your child hate life and want to Get High. I'm serious: This place is no good..don't be fooled.
