So the only reason I come here is for Dr. Laser. He is a Saint! Other than that the "rules for counseling " are absolutely ridiculous!! They act like natzis when you miss a session and hold your medication from you until you put in your hour wait time. It's got to be illegal, besides you would think the goal would be to make patients want to come here for the medication assisted treatment not push then away over the hard core counseling stipulations!? I'm like for real frustrated with it already and I have only been back for less than a week. I know from past experience that it in fact doesn't get easier at all...medmark is way more lax
Aegis saved the lives of my husband and I. We started in March 2004, and have been clean ever since. We are able to lead a peaceful and productive life now...
Great place for recovery the Nurses & Doctors are wonderful. I absolutely enjoy going every morning to Dose because the Nurses make you feel welcomed. There never is any type of drama going on within the Center.
Today was my first day of being seen and treated. I was very nervous but the staff and Dr made my visit feel very comfortable. I wasn’t judged or looked at a certain way. I definitely recommend this place for anyone who needs treatment. They really are welcoming. I’m looking forward to accomplishing my goal at this place!
As a counselor, I have observed many clients of this clinic recover from addiction and go on to a more productive life. This clinic is not perfect by any means, but it has made a positive difference in the lives of many people. I can honestly say that first hand. I have to admit that the pay is not at the level of other clinics for any staff member. I have a Masters degree and 20 years experience and I make $18 an hour, not near the compensation I have earned with the education and experience I have. The work hours could be better and more flexible and more overtime could also be offered. We have excellent staff here in Fresno, an excellent physician, caring nursing staff, great counselors, hard-working medical assistants, and supportive management staff. Even with our weaknesses (from my side of things anyway), I would recommend this clinic to anyone seeking treatment for addiction and I would also recommend this clinic to anyone (nurse, medical assistant, counselor) seeking employment in this field. It is a place that will make a positive difference in your life either way.
Ive been coming to Aegis since February 1, 2001 except for a few years living in a different city. Before I moved back to Fresno I called an made an appointment. Unfortunately I missed 1 day because of traveling so I had to earn my bottles again. I've got 6 take homes and am waiting for my 13. I am editing my review because of my experirnce here with COVID 19. 2 weeks ago I went in and their computer system was down. No one got take homes so I went back the next day and computers were fixed but the line was around the block. Most of us waited 2 hours on the hottest day of the week. Tempers flared. Staff were telling patients to keep our masks on but it really was hard in the heat. Finally we all got dosed and got our take homes. Hopefully the kinks will get straightened out.
New director that I previously posted meant that a new director is there now than when I was there sometime ago. I had problems then I hope its better now with the new director.
They seemed to actually take pleasure in my failure. The ladies who worked the front were absolutely terrible and acted like they were better than every person that came in for treatment. One of the only cool people at Aegis is good old doctor Lasher. He makes it tolerable to come there to dose.
I have totally enjoyed my treatment at Aegis . You are treated like a person not a number. As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted by your name and the staff are always smiling. My counselor is strict but fair and she really cares about your mind, body and soul. She makes sure she finds out my week has gone and if I have any issues she is there to help me work thru them so I don't fall backwards in my treatment.
I really like Aegis treatment center. The staff are respectful and very discreet when it comes to your privacy. Dr. Lasher is great he genuinely cares about your sobriety and how comfortable you are on your dose without being sedated. Aegis has saved my life . I'm happily in a relationship and raising my 4 beautiful kids in a drug free environment. Thank you Aegis for everything.
I came to Aegis just over 3 months ago. Just got my weekend take-home bottles and it's wonderful! My experience has been nothing but positive. From the girls in the front to the girls in the back and security in between they are super people. Efficient, curtious and have never made me feel anything but special. My counselor is fantastic. I look forward to my sessions with him. He has done everything in his power to make this a positive experience. Thanks to his encouragement I have self with a serious medical condition I'd been ignoring for years. My thanks to all.
I think they saved my life. And thanks to my young but very much appreciated councelor I am sober and living life free of addiction. Thank you doctor Lasher. Aiges is great if you need change and are willing to do anything to help save your own life. This is a place of healing I thank you for everything.
I saw a comment on here that says Alexa is a great counselor, if it’s the same Alexa NO WAY my husband had her for about 8 months he started telling me about his conversations with her and she mostly talked about herself after about 7 months she seemed to start getting flirty and then crossed a HUGE boundary with him which a counselor should NEVER do she knew what she was doing even said don’t tell your wife I told you this. So of course he switched counselors. Anyway other than her it’s definitely a good place for treatment and things are going great with his new counselor so far she doesn’t at all sound like his last one thank goodness.
They really do care and work with you
I've been to all the local Methadone clinics Aegis is VERY strict if you're late or miss an appointment with given counselor you have to wait an HR before dosing for next 2 days.It felt like it was a game when I'm not feeling well.The counselors can't go up or down on your dose only the DOC. Im and Medmark and they understand that it's hard in recovery. Aegis for military or something they didn't dose me when I was sick and I relapsed on top I called to tell them I'm sick I may use and the lady said OK.Beautiful Staff but it's kinda funny it is what it is. Good luck to anyone trying.Try no Methadone and kick it on your own!
30 years ago, I went here as a 4 year old, I hate this place because I got shot in my butt and it was very painful.
The doctor there is a trigger for me to use because every time I have had an appointment with him he's constantly nodding in and out. So either he is also on methadose or some other type of opiate. Regardless witch one he's using, he is obviously taking way too much because I don't even get like that. I constantly have to repeat myself to him because he asks me the same question two or more times.
Nice place to quit drugs
Well I've been to three of these Aegis and by far this is the worst. Director..if she doesn't like you kiss your ability to feel safe goodbye. And for those of you who pay forget it. That's why I'm going to transfer to a better place were they got a grant so those of us with no medi-cal or means to pay can recover with out fear. Ever wonder why most places with MMT or bupe in our little valley got some gov. funding and Aegis did not? IDK, do you?Edit: the staff, some of you guys are awesome and thanks to some of them I was able to get through a lot but in the end, their director just made feel so hopeless and alone with no one to torn to. If it werent for this director I'd stay but owell....
