Comments This clinic's atmosphere is very welcoming and inviting -not clinical like at all. If it weren't for this place opening its doors here in Peoria, i feel that i wouldnt be here. All of the staff are great our doctor here is in my opinion the best doctor in the field of addiction medicine there is. He has true compassion for addicts and his clients, which is something you will not find from other doctors in Peoria or even this area. He is on the leading edge using the best evidence based practices in addiction medicine today, whereas many docs can't even begin to understand addiction, but think they know what is best. This clinic and its staff are very respectful and treat you like a person and not society's trash.

Comments At first rose medical seemed to be really good, but then after awhile it seemed to me if i went to doc rose for cravings or anything he wanted to raise me, atleast 10 today and 10 tomorrow. I said at one time i just wanted to go up 10 and try that not 10 today and 10 tomorrow, His reply was i am the doc so i will do what i want.I also had trouble with my counsler witch i will not call out. It seemed to me he allways forgot to do anything he said he would do. I may have just had a bad timing or whatever but i just wasent good for my recovery.

Comments The staff at Rose Medical is very professional yet very friendly at the same time. They are all very knowledgeable about addiction. The counselors are very compassionate and make me feel like they really care about my well-being and my recovery. Dr. Rose seems a bit intimidating, but he is kind, caring, and helpful. The nurses are very efficient and are a joy to see and talk to when I go in to dose. The clinic itself is clean, visually appealing, and easy to find your way around in. Plus, the location is in a nice area, so you don't have to worry about loiterers trying to buy your medication, nor is it in a part of the city with heavy drug-dealing. A overall. P.S. Rashmi will be greatly missed.

Comments "Izzy" is a sorry excuse for a human being. He always made me feel like I was a bad person and tired to make me feel dumb. He currently is still my counslor but I just go in when I know he won't be there so someone else will help me. He acts like he is doing you a favor by doing his job. Angel on the other hand is a great guy. He isn't even my counslor but helps me out way more then that turd ever has.

Comments I've been a patient at this clinic for over a year now, and being there has done nothing to my life except making it a living hell. The staff was nice when I first started. It seemed like the longer I was there and increasing my dose the ruder they got. I've had 3 different counselors. The first one always fought me tooth and nail when it came to getting privileges. Especially my hardship. I lived 83 miles away but she said I couldn't get it because I hadn't been there long enough. She didn't understand that the hardship is something completely separate I had to have Vicki go and tell her to do because I did qualify. On top of that she also didn't fill out the paper work right. She hadn't done a hardship before and still refused to have Angel explain how to do it. One of the nurses said she was surprised I even got approved because of how wrong and incomplete it was. The 2nd one was extremely rude. The first thing she said to me was why I had switched to her. Kayla didn't give her any of the messages I had left for her

Comments The first couple of times your there the doctor is an exceptional man.Giving what you need in order to stop doing what your doing.But the moment you do anything he does'nt agree with the dark side comes out.He will be sarcastic,rude,call you a liar,and generally treat you like a worthless junkie.He does'nt want you well he want's your devotion and money.I swear it's more like a cult than a methadone clinic.

Comments If 70$ a week is no strain on your pocketbook then this is the place for you. its clean and easy. the staff is professional but down to earth. if u cant afford it absolutely do not go there. Rose will jack up your milligrams to the extent that you wont have disturbing cravings but you wouldn't be able to detox without severe problems anytime shortly. figure a week a milligram, less if you have major willpower.Also take advantage of the weekly groups. They are the best thing about Rose's. The councilors i personally know, Izzy and Angel are the best. Both have worked hard to be where they are and are compassionate, intuitive,smart men. Ive read the other comments posted and i think its good to remember we are all at different points in our recovery. Act accordingly. This is not a place for you if you can't give 70$ weekly for at least a few years. for many of us thats a daily amount when spent on our addiction but when we are clean and thinking clearly its alot while we try to get our lives back on track. If parents read this i k

Comments I was at rose for a year then got off of it, after I got off i did good but went back to using heroin again. So now I am back on and in march I would be on it for a grand total of 3 years. It has helped me alot in some cases in other cases it hasn't it all depends on who you are as a person and if this really is the right thing for you. Personally I hate that I signed back up again if youre going in thinking that you are going to get clean off of heroin by taking methadone you gotta think you are substituting one drug for another and your MAINTAINING stability being an opiate dependent person.In no way are you clean at all. My bill got way to high and I will probably be detoxing soon and I probably won't stay clean and end up dead from a heroin OD. Atleast that's what Dr. Rose told me. I believe him sad to say he's brutally honest. So if you read this pray for me and methadone isn't the answer it's an excuse in my opinion.

Comments I am a client at Rose Medical and I can say that Dr. Rose and Methadone saved my life. While I work through the issues that led to my drug abuse and dependence, I am confident in knowing that I am at a much lower risk for relapse, overdose, legal problems or the problems associated with these. I attend Dr. Rose's weekly groups and get so much valuable information as well as the support I have come to count on. Since coming to Rose Medical Center, my life has done a complete turnaround. I went from being sporadically employed at menial jobs, to beginning my career in the Substance Abuse field. I am now employed as a Case Manager in an Addiction Recovery Center and have a passion for helping others as they search for a light in the deep darkness of addiction. I've done a lot hard work and soul searching to get to where I am today, but I owe a great deal of my success to Dr. Rose and my Counselor, Israel at Rose Medical Center.

Comments I have been going to Dr. Rose for a year now. I am very grateful for him and my counselor. If I didn't go when I did I don't even want to know where I would be today. Thanks to him and my recovery I am no longer using. Its up to you to make it in your recovery not the the doctors or the counselor's. It may cost a bit but I would be spending more then this looking for drugs and not know what I am getting. You don't have to go up on your dose if you don't want to nobody tells you to that is your decision. Hopefully I will be able to start decreasing very soon. I thank Dr. Rose and the counselors and staff.

Comments Before the commercials began on TV, I had no idea such humane treatment existed for opiate addiction. A year before I tried the "traditional" route by checking myself into Proctor. They seemed almost thrilled at the agony I would be going through and less interested in what they could do to help me. Plus, they had drug addicts, alcoholics, gambling addicts, bulimia patients and sex addicts all thrown together under the same program. It was at the height of a heat wave but we couldn't even wear capris because of the sex addict. I lasted 3 days. The only time they appeared to care was when I announced I couldn't take anymore. I was in my late 50's. They argued with me, telling me that I didn't know what I was doing. Perhaps, but I knew my body could not tolerate one more night on the wooden bed without a mattress(everyone else had regular hospital beds, even the empty beds). They wouldn't allow me to use their phone to contact my daughter to come after me. I packed and was allowed to drag my things to the curb outdoors

Comments Dr. Rose, In theary your program should work but from what I've seen from family members - you NEvER wean people off. You are their new "legal" drug dealer. Do you have any idea what Methodone is doing to babies born to mom's on this drug? They suffer horribly - it can take up to 60 days to get them clean. You need to educate women about the hell their newborn babies endure. Make it part of your program - for men and women - from their first visit and especially for a pregnant woman. I work at the Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria. We see many drug addicted babies and have video's that we could provide to you of babies going through redrawal. Perhaps that would be enough to turn these women around. Please help us help these innocent babies.

Comments I have guest dosed around the country and have to say this methadone clinic is one of the best. I have guest dosed here multiple times and there is never a wait. They moved to a much nicer facility a few years ago and their staff is always kind, even when the paperwork on my end is not done correctly or not filled out right by my staff. There are never shady people lurking around outside asking for cigs or dealing and Peoria is a beautiful city. Every patient likes to complain, but I am here to tell you that you have it made if you go to this clinic compared to many others. The nurses and staff are super nice.
