It did it's job of being just a straight-up Kensington detox from dope. No frills...come in get your methadone..sleep and switch channels between "Ancient Aliens" and Law and Order...give away half your cigs...whatever. if you were there like me under a PA welfare health plan , and this is just my opinion, you got/get reprieve from the horror of opiate withdrawl..FOR FREE...I LOVED IT CAUSE THEY LEFT ME ALONE AND LET ME JUST SLEEP..FOR FOUR yeah it was old and ugly and stuff wa's falling apart but it did it's advertisedone gimmicks..and no B.S

I've been there once for detox. Very broken English they are by the book so if you ask for extra care they most likely won't do it. And anyone know the hours for the detox for impatient?
