I've been to a few Intensive out-patient programs, out of those few Centennial Peaks has been the MOST effective by far on my recovery. I love this group and the people in it. Jeanne (The programs consoler) is the best and has a BIG heart and really does care about every patient in her group. After leaving group I always get something new out of it, and always leave group feeling refreshed and a better person with a lot more recovery skills.
At the end of the day out of the mental hospitals I’ve been to this one way the one that genuinely had staff who cared. As a minor they work us up daily with music. They were the one place I’ve been that had snacks available 24/7 for the patients as well as exposing us to different coping skills such as music therapy, sand art therapy, and yoga. They may have changed massively in the past 6-7 year but from my experience as a teen one of the most helpful facilities I went to.
This place did real harm to our family member. It caused greater trauma than what led to their visit. The treatment of our family member was like out of one of those movies about how bad mental health facilities were 80 years ago... Many many many significant issues. If you love your family, consider other options.
Could not be more grateful that I chose this facility! From the med techs, to the nurses, the social workers, the counselors, and the doctors, I was discharged feeling SO happy that I finally have the right diagnosis and the right medications to treat it. I am forever grateful to this facility, and couldn't recommend it more highly.
I have major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder and have tried a large number of medications that have never worked. I learned about ECT and set up an appointment Dr. Klopton. After waiting a week, having my primary doctor reach out, driving 40 minutes and filling out a ton of paperwork and questionaires, Dr. Klopton ultimately rejected me for ECT treatment simply because I took testosterone a few months ago. The Dr. claimed that that is what is causing my depression. I have had major depression and bipolar disorder LONG before I started taking testosterone, not to mention testosterone does not cause depression in the first place. I have filed a lawsuit and started posting on every local mental health forum and social media page to warn people to stay away from this unhelpful place and specifically this doctor. I needed this treatment so badly, but will continue to suffer because Dr. Klopton didn't want to help me. If you're reading this I hope you can sleep at night knowing you are the reason I will continue living in agony. Thank you of depriving me of the peace I've longed for so desperately.
This is a horrible place. My daughter went in on her own ready for help. They stripped searched her, there were no doors on bathrooms and two days in when she started to have confusion due to detox they sent her to the hospital. They are a DETOX facility. She was deemed ok from the hospital and decided not to go back. The social worker Sarah told me it was pretty much impossible to find inpatient rehab that takes Medicaid. I made my own calls and the first three facilities took Medicaid. One week later she is in West Pines where they are treating her with respect and knowledge of how to treat her. Never go to this facility.
I was stuck there for 5 days in March of 2021 and I would have preferred jail time. The Staff was friendly but during the 5 days that I committed myself there to detox we went out for 10 minutes outside! Not 10 minutes a day 10 minutes for the entire 5 days! Also when you need to detox and check yourself in to this place they keep you for 5 to 7 days and won’t let you leave because they are making at least 1.500 dollars a day from your insurance and they say you can leave anytime you want but you will be responsible for the cost of your stay! So you have to perform up to there standard before you are free to leave with absolutely no skills on staying sober once you leave because they don’t want you to stay Sober because they are making a lot of money off of alcoholics and addictions. If I ever needed a treatment center in the future I would call Denver Springs that I went to 4 days after leaving Centennial and you go outside 4 times a day and you can smoke there!!!
