First off, I just want to say I went here for depression. I am quite sane and I suggest you read this warning.
This place was horrifying. Not only were their violent outbreaks among the patients, there was not enough staff to control any of these people. I was constantly afraid.
The way the staff treated the patients was appalling. In fact, there was an elderly patient who had memory problems and they locked him in a room. He didn't know what was going on.
People were not cared for properly. The wrong medications were given out but the patients were forced to take them. They over-medicated my roommate and never checked on her. She was not breathing and had no pulse when the ambulance took her away. They made me switch rooms They killed her.
People who had voluntarily committed themselves for help with drugs/alcohol/depression/eating disorders regretted their decision. The staff made it very difficult for anyone to leave once they were committed. People who had been in prison said this was worse than prison.
My psychiatrist barely spoke english and often confused words. She was very cruel and treated me as if I were crazy, as did most of the staff. All the patients told me. "Do whatever they say, act happy, don't seem upset, participate in group, that's the only way you can get out."
They even had a doctor employed here who had sexual contact with a patient in the state of Washington. In just the nine HELLISH days I was trapped in this prison, I saw so much malpractice that THEY SHOULD HAVE THEIR ASSES SUED.
There was only one kind man there who told me I shouldn't be in this place. Thank GOD for him. He helped me get out.
Even if this is your last resort, I would not go here. Find somewhere else, unless you like being treated like a crazy person. I cried myself to sleep every night. And I had nightmares every single night for months after I got out. It was four years ago and I still feel sick when I think about it
