Review for U Turn For Christ Greeneville, Greeneville, TN, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Please check this place out before placing anyone here. Men sleep (or try to) in unairconditioned upstairs. Turnover rate is VERY high. They require 2 months (cash) pre-pay and you lose if they don't stay (very unlikely that they will). This is supposed to be a Christian rehab center. Sure there is Bible study but their practices seem very unChristian - ask those who have left. Punishment is very inconsistent - just whatever the leader wants to do for that day and depends on if you're one of their "favorites". Very little accountability. Your loved one WILL NOT make it so you're wasting your money. Ask them for a list of those who have left for a reference. I know, they'll tell you you'll just hear from a disgruntled person but that person will tell you what it's really like. Trust me, NOT a place they'll want to go. Writing this in hopes of saving others from the "experience" (it will be a bad one).

Offered as our opinion. PLEASE check it out for yourself.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Yes and they were not good.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Require accountability within the organization. What really happens to the $800 cash that's required upon beginning the program. This is non-refundable and if (when) person leaves program, it's gone. Their goal should be to retain and help those in the program but their goal seems to be get as many in as you can - retention is VERY low and don't fall for their excuse "they chose to leave, we don't kick anyone out". All a matter of speech.

Role:  General Member of the Public & Heard from someone who is familiar with the program.
