For all of these negative comments saying that this place is horrible, just ignore them. I was sent there for high suicide risk and I successfully discharged after 2 months. This place really only helps if you want help. This place will not hold your hand but they will help you. yes, it was rough. But that's the point of it all. So please send your children here. It's hard and it gets rough sometimes but they want to help. It's just tough love. Not abuse. However, PHP is up for concern. I had personal information shared with another patient from a therapist who was not my own therapist.
This facility was a horrible experience. I am Kori Lentz (I already left a reveiw but I didn't explain my hatred.) I was admitted March 12th of 2020 and It was nothing but utter pain. They don't allow you to have feelings or emotions. If you cry or even get mad you get in trouble. You get in trouble for every possible thing you do. Some of the staff were rediculous but I personally loved a lot of the staff. There were some who helped me through a lot but others made me feel like a bad person my therapist was the best and made me very happy throughout my visit but that doesn't excuse the wretched treatment you couldn't even have friends without them getting taken away from you let alone any happiness. The phone calls are five minutes once a week unless you had perfect behavior. Over all I would never think of sending a child to this establishment.
I just wanted to say for the parents wondering if they should send their children here. I spent 6 months here in 2017 and I STILL wake up crying from nightmares of being there. I was 17. Now I’m 21. The nightmares consist of just waking up there back in those rooms. You hate your children if you purposefully put them there. The nightmares have been worse recently so I thought about sending this message to parents.
The therapists here are great. They really care about their patients. Same goes to a lot of the MHTs. I had great relationships with a lot of the staff here. However, the doctors look for any reason, no matter how small, to medicate. You can make one little mistake and they will deem you as anxious or angry or depressed and force medication on you. Also, many of the therapists will BS their work and not actually work with the patients in their therapy groups. This place will really only work if your child wants to get help. If not, then they will probably come out worse
