I have nightmares about this place often.. i still think about going back, but it was like prison. Perhaps all mental hospitals are like that, but i diddnt get help here.. i only learned how to hide my mental illness better..
Was an absolute nightmare and continues even after I have left there. The doctor playing as a shrink was like Jecyhl and Hyde! The have these rules to following yet they don't follow them but don't mention that because then you have holy hell to pay. Rules say no paperclips nor staples on the floor YET 95% of the handouts come with staples in them! It says no water bottles to be carried around YET the first night there the nurse checking me in and helping me get settled told me to keep it because ei was a diabetic and therefore I drink a lot of water. Thought that was very caring and thoughtful. Yet that was held against me for having that. Favoritism run rampant there. Returning patients get away with whatever they want. I filed a complaint and that was even a bigger joke. Literally everything I complained about if I didn't have proof was played off as I was the only breaking the rules. The ones I have proof on wasn't mentioned in their reply! So if you care for your veteran DO NOT SEND THEM THERE! Chris Kyle himself would be ashamed that his name is on that place! Veterans are truly not cared about at all! Glad I signed my life away to serve this country I love to only be treated like this when I ask for help from it!
had my sister sent here.... missed her but it helped her LOTS.. i almost got sent here too.... these people are really kind caring and will do anything to help....
I highly recommend you think twice about this place. I strongly believe that they are in it for the money only. My experience as a parent was full of regret. My daughter was exposed to more poisonous behaviors than healthy life experiences. The clinical therapist told me it would take to long to discharge her so she kept putting it off. Her name was Jamie. She was rude and very disrespectful. Please reconsider putting your child in that jail, because it literally was the worst choice I ever made as a concerned parent.
Do not! I mean do not take your children here. We had a family member (adopted) go there and their councler was GOD AWFUL! The councler is doing illegal activity and letting our family member who is adopted by us go out on public outings/stay the night at the bio family's house when the bio family abused our adopted family member and has been known to give her them drugs/alcohol. And then proceeded to not tell THE PARENT WHO HAS LEGAL RIGHTS TO THIS CHILD! THATS ILLEGAL. They don't help anything they cause more issues than what you start out with. They will tear your family apart. They are all about money and could careless about any child's interest. Your best bet is to go to a out of state treatment facility where there is better care and less drama.
