feedback about College Hospital Costa Mesa
These reviews were more than likely from people on the mental health side that were involuntarily held against their will for the safety of themselves and others around them.
The substance abuse DETOX side of College hospital was seriously great. I have no complaints other than the food could have been a little bit better during meal time.... But honestly, they provided a healthy, celiac friendly diet for me 3 times a day, never late, and with snacks as well. They also had a fridge stocked full of yogurts, fruit, jello, puddings, carrots... All kinds of stuff. They even had ice cream!! (But that went pretty quick)
You have phone, internet, and tv privileges upon arrival... No blackout like most detoxs. No, you don't get your personal cell, but who cares if you can write your numbers down before admitting and you can get on the computer all day. I don't see how anyone can complain about this place honestly.
The staff.... Oh boy the staff was so incredibly accommodating and understanding. They will seriously do whatever they can do(be reasonable) to make you feel comfortable. The doctor sees you DAILY, another perk that I've not experienced at any other detox in orange county (I have been to seriously TONS of detoxs in this area, something I'm not proud to admit, but I'm telling you, this one is really accommodating.
No, it's not a boushee detox in a multi-million dollar house over-looking the ocean with a hot tub you're not allowed to even use if you're taking medication. It's a hospital setting. You have a traditional hospital bed with the possibility of having one other roommate in your room. You can however pull a curtain around your bed to provide privacy if you feel so compelled.
I promise this place will 9 out of 10 times provide you with a staff that HONESTLY cares about helping you, and will give you pretty much the same medication routine you'll get at any of these places.
The only differences are (as mentioned above) college doesn't have a blackout period and will allow phone and internet use throughout the entire day and this place is only about 3-5 days MAX. The doc will probably write you a non narcotic taper for the PAWS. Not sure if he does that for everyone but he did for me.
So yeah long story short.... Don't be scared to go here. They won't charge your insurance an arm and a leg and you'll get great care. I'm a total baby when it comes to being sick and seriously ...if I was okay...youll be okay. Just come with a good positive mindset and a plan for aftercare for when youre discharged. Youll be fine. Good luck to you and your loved ones. Don't wait just go. I showed up at 4 am. I told them I'd be there by 10 or 11pm. and even if they were not thrilled to have an intake right before shift change (😘sorry guys) they still welcomed me with open arms and love. And that meant the world to me. Thanks to all at college hospital you all are great.
Ps- Ryan is especially dope. He knows what's up and has some great stories, advice, and knowledge when it comes to recovery. Don is also pretty hilarious. All the staff kicks @$$ honestly.
I reported College Hospital to the Costa Mesa Police Department. About Dr. Forging my Signature and other Scandalous activities.. this place is Darkness..
This is one of the great hospitals that helped me. There are others but they suck. I really liked rawnda. I think that's her name and the other blonde lady. They are so sweet. And this other guy with brown messy curly hair, he's funny I liked him. He offered me snacks a lot when I didn't want to eat. Also Paul. Paul was mean. Well strict. Then he's nice at times too. He's cool. Everyone is nice. I'm 18 now so I won't be going to any more of these hospitals.
Horrible experience. Receptionist was listening to a video on her phone for 3-4 minutes before acknowledging I was there. Psychiatrist was completely incompetent. Do not bring your child here unless you want a bill and no help at all. The manager greeted me when I checked him out AMA and immediately handed me a complaint form so I guess this is routine for them.
Unfortunately my fiancé was involuntarily contained there, that hospital as well as a “Dr Grayden” are literally jokes. The only conclusion I can come up with is that because the patients have little to no rights and our system sides with the Dr even if the are incompetent as this Dr Grayden clearly is most of these patients are a for sure meal ticket. I’ll summarize this DR Grayden in a nutshell, never did any kind of diagnosis on my fiancé, he is going by what some other entities said in their reports, I have visited my fiancé and I know when she is having issues, she is not experiencing any and is treated like a derelict. This hospital is like an armpit I would not want my dog in there so much as someone I cared about. There is a lot of money made by these hospitals because of the involuntary hold laws, a patient disagrees with any findings and they have a day in court, the Drs lie to justify retaining these folks and correct me if I’m wrong but it is just summarized as a crazy person going against a Dr even if they are incompetent as Grayden clearly is, who do you think the system will side with? The mental health system is a joke, “the system” isn’t going to change it, we need to.
I do understand that there are some with severe mental conditions that do need help, but there are also some that have issues that can briefly surface for a short time. It’s the ladder of the two that I am fighting for. To say a lot of these holds aren’t just to bill the insurance then you all went to the same school as this “Dr Grayden”!
