I was depressed and called Princeton House for help. After a phone assessment they said that they would have a bed for me in two days. I asked about their policies (clothing, smoking etc.) and she said said that she would call me back with all of the information I needed. Two days later she had still never called back so I called them. They made me go to an ER first where I spent over 5 hours and then the ER told me no vaping allowed, no visitors allowed and my husband who sat outside the ER for hours couldn't even take me. Why didn't Princeton House tell us this when we called for help?
great people here. Sincerely.. Above and beyond. All of them in this place. I actually really never been to a place with such caring and sensitive people. I feel bad because it's been a while and I don't remember everyone's name but all of them top notch ????
Absolutely horrendous experience. I did the partial day program at Moorestown for almost 2 months in the fall of 2016 following a serious mental health crisis, and my time at Princeton House was far more traumatic than what put me there. I spent hours a day doing useless programs and participating in group therapy, which they refused to acknowledge was unhelpful for me. They put me on lithium, which made me feel like I had dementia. I could barely function. One of my worst experiences with a medication. At one point, my entire care team left at the same time for vacation, directly after the psychiatrist had me stop my antidepressant cold turkey. I had a terrible manic episode and didn't sleep for 48 hours. The admins were caddy and nasty to me when I told them I needed to go home so I wouldn't have an emotional breakdown due to no sleep, and tried to stop me from leaving even though they had no jurisdiction to do so. They kept pushing my discharge date back because I didn't want to stop smoking weed. Eventually I left without being discharged. It took at least 6 months for me to emotionally recover from what they put me through. DO NOT LET YOUR DOCTOR SEND YOU HERE.
