Comments Coming to Dr.Rose was one of the smartest decisions i made! His treatment without a doubt saved my life, saved my marriage and has given me back my life! My life today is as it was before i took my first pain pill for an operation i had on my shoulder, I'm back to being the loving father and husband along with money in my wallet, i could list many more things but i think everyone gets the idea! Dr.Rose saved me and put a smile back on my face,since December 13th give or take a day,of 2014, when i first walked into Rose Medical, i got my life back! Thanks Dr. Rose, thank you so much sir!!

Comments Rose Medical seems to be more about maintenance as opposed to getting clean and off all opiates (i.e. methadone).

Comments This place refuses to release my medical file until I pay for services that was never provided or used. In my option,It is clear this dr.is all about ripping me off and overmedicating me!

Comments I have yet to actually experience this clinic yet but will be going in tomorrow morning at 6am for intake into their suboxone program. I had previously been put on suboxone by my pain specialist after I told him in tears I was done with the pills. He gave me no info on this drug he just whipped out his script pad and said take this twice a day. No compassion ..nothing. then I was treated even more like junkie by him and his staff at my next 3 appts. After my medical card ran out I decided to stop going and to buy my subs off of the street. Considering 1 8mg strip could last me almost a week I didn't have much trouble finding them until recently, and now have had to revert back to Vicodin and tramadol to get me through. I feel like with places like this you have to go in with a end in sight, common sense tells you that these places make money off of the drugs they distribute, if they get everyone off said drug then they in turn don't make money. So it is up to the individual to do what they need to do to wean themselves off of whatev

Comments Dr Rose and his councelors definitely helped me and ultimately SAVED MY LIFE! I have successfully weened off after 4 yrs....without their guidance the last 4 years I would not have the tools and mental health to get and stay clean. It's not for everybody and yes many people abuse it but if you are ready to get clean and take full advantage of their meetings and work with your councelors you can get your life back! I will be forever grateful to Dr Rose and my councelor!! ❤

Comments In regards to Brian's comment, Nice place? Ha! What a joke! You were just one of the many brown nosers who would like and say whatever necessary to get what you wanted. I do believe you had a code 6? Meaning everyday you had to come. That place is full of liars and hipocrites. The director hides in her office avoiding her responsibilities. They allow unethical, illegal shit to go down in the parking lot. Confidentiality is non existent which is violation of so many laws. I am even guilty of buying take homes right inside that hell hole. The only good thing I can say is the compassion I received from one nurse I will keep nameless. For those of you who are blinded by the bullshit or are one of the many brown nosers or ass kissers you belong here. If you want to spend the rest of your life a slave to this place so be it. Where will you go when RMS is shut down? Their day's are numbered.... trust and believe that

Comments This place is at first is a godsend of course your in withdrawl. There is no level of professionalism, hell the "Director" fucked her way to the top. Since I've been there, I've seen at least 20 receptionist. Same goes for councilors. It's a joke. They take your money and still treat you like a "junkie" Bottom line the "Director" runs the show with no knowledge of addiction

Comments This program has saved my life. Dr. Rose is a very competent doctor who understands and can read his patients. When I first called Phil was able to get me an intke appointment on a day they do not do intakes. During my first several weeks when they are trying to find the correct dose too keep you stable and comfortable Dr. Rose was able too figure out that I was scared and he stopped my dose at the right amount. Since getting the correct dose and sticking to the plan that Dr. Rose, my counselor Rushmi, and myself setup I have been able too retake control of my life. Thank you and God bless Dr. Rose and his amazing staff.

Comments also if you do decide to get on the methadone program make sure you're not one of those people that want to be a lifer there's clean and then there's substitution if you are on methadone for more than six months you're more than likely going to be a lifer and in my opinion that's what dr. Rose Wants

Comments I want to this place for two years and yes anytime you have a problem he just says maybe you need more methadone I asked for almost a whole year to be starting to drop and then I had to take my mother in there and my DCFS caseworker got involved finally the only reason I did get detoxed was because they didn't tell me my bill was over $500 and I couldn't afford it and he could care less that I was sick afterwards I really feel like he cars Mir about money than the actual clients

Comments I really wish the state or dea would do something about this place. All teh doc does is push methadone and tries to get you on a very high dose - more than 300 milgrams. I feel like im in a stupor, but my counsleor and the nurs say i'm fien and may need more to get over the stupor feelings. I need real help and it isnt at this place,

Comments For all the people who have put bad comments on here are some of the people who are always mad and never happy. Let me tell you this place it excellent. There are so many people that take advantage of this place and dick the counclers around. You never get a code because you never test clean. Your always mad if the doors are opened one minute late. I mean give me a break. They are trying to help them and you treat them like shit. No wonder you think the people there dont like you because they pry don't! Also people think 70 bucks a week is so expensive. Common! You would send that and more a day doing smack. Do everyone a favor and when your there sit down shut up get your dose and be nice to everyone. They are doing you a favor!

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.

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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
