The KeyStone Center Extended Care Unit (ECU) clients are asked to fill out a patient satisfaction survey upon discharge. The results of the surveys indicate an excellent rating (the highest score possible) in several key areas: compassionate and caring staff, competency of the clinical program and small unit size. ECU alumni said they felt that they received world-class treatment at a more affordable cost. In the spring of each year KeyStone hosts an alumni weekend in which graduates of the program are invited to attend a weekend of workshops. The alumni weekend was formed to celebrate the joys and struggles of recovery, acting as a “booster shot” in the recovery process. Our staff feels passionate about the work they do and it shows in every facet of the program.
