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



I was there about 6 yrs. ago, and not good experience either, but right now I am looking for a place for a friend of mine other than WBI in Casper- she need's inpatient help ASAP.... Don't wanna rate it, but guess you have too... TIA!!



10 years ago I went to these people in desperation for an extremely abusive situation at home. I was treated like I was the one with the problem and put in involuntarily for 10 days. Absolutely ruined my life and destroyed my trust in people, and made my situation at home 50 times worse. I went to these people for help with a horrible situation and was treated like crap. I wish I had sued. Since then, the truth has come out about my situation, but too late. Absolutely destroyed me.



My first stay at WBI in Casper was in 2007. At that time I found it to be a very good experience. The doctors, therapists and staff were very caring and genuinely concerned about my welfare and recovery. I recently spent 2 weeks there and I am sorry to say that this time the experience was entirely different. I went there because I wasn't sure if the depression was causing the pain in my body or if the pain was causing the depression. Most of the staff was arrogant and rude to the point of being uncaring. I saw my doctor 3 times and my therapist twice. I was allowed to go outside into the courtyard once but because my coat and shoes were locked up, I could not stay out for more than a few minutes. I had a severe migraine while there that they would not treat. I finally phoned the hospital for an ambulance. Then the finally covered the windows, shut of the lights and gave me an ice pack.They would not allow me to use regular lighting instead of flourescents which triggered many headaches. The timeliness of medication was terrible -- somedays taking 2 to 2.5 hours of standing in line. I also have very painful fibromyalgia for which they would give me nothing for pain. The staff was completely disorganized and spent more time talking with each other than taking care of patients. I would never recommend that anyone go there. I feel worse off now than I did when I was admitted. I was bullied and lied to and there was nothing I could do about it because I had no rights. I was treated like I was making it all up. There were a few compationate people there, but not as many as there were on power trips. They treat everyone as if they are only drug seeking -- they don't listen to you when you explain what is wrong with you and why you are there. They just assume that everyone there is either abusing alcohol or drugs or is on the verge of either killing yourself or someone else. Their care was very negligent -- almost to the point of being cruel and criminal. They need to get a clue and treat the patients with care and understanding and quit treating them like criminals. Our only "crime" is having a physical or mental illness that no one seems to understand.

We are here to help.

I used to work as a nurse at WBI. It is a really good facility for those needing help for mental disorders. It is not a ""Celebrity Rehab"" by any means, but they do have a clean facility and a caring staff of doctors, nurses, therapists, and mental health workers. I would not hesitate to admit my own family member there. I really hate to see the negative comments by those who have no clue how the mental health system actually works. The majority of patients can be helped in about a week, some longer, and a rare few can't behelped. If you are dedicated to treatment and to getting well, they can help.

Poor staff behavior

WBI Wyoming Behavior Institute staff proved to be overly controling to the point of belittling. As a professional myself, the department working with admissions, Patty and Kristy, I found them to be more about stating their own merrits in their line of work, rather then the actual role of the job. They were very rude and at the point of placement, they refused service. Now, I am looking for another insitution and the part that is so frustrating, they are pleased. I just wonder how someone in the field of helping children, can be so thrilled that they ""SCHOOLED"" the parent.

Just another road bump to cross over. I recommend no other parent take the same path I took with the ""BEHAVIORAL' insitution.


This is the worst place ever,t...

This is the worst place ever,they say they are there to help,Wat a blantant lie.They only want to dope people up so they don't have to deal with them.They made my child worse.If it hadn't been for they're incompetence and lack of compassion,my child mite be home now,instead she is in another institute.Thank GOD it is a good place and she is well taken care of there.I would not send my worst enemy to WBI.If things happened at home that happened there I would be in jail for abuse and neglect.If any of u out there think something should be done about this plesae send a yes post and I will send u my email.DO NOT PUT YOUR FAMILY MEMBER HERE They don't deserve any star rating can't post this without one.



dont trust sister went there for help and they made things up, made her sound to be worse then what she is.they lie to you,and send you to state. dont trust this place.ask others that have family members there, they will say the same

Worst Institution EVER

WBI Wyoming Behavioral Institute
This place is a joke. My husband was admitted there, to get a diagnosis for what was wrong with him. They told him they would hold him for 72 hours. He has now been there for three days and they are not releasing him for another 3 days. This made me really upset that they refused to release him after 3 days. Now because I got upset when I was visiting him for lunch they put a 24 hour hold on me visiting him. They are liars, and rude. I was not in harm of myself or others and they locked me in a room for an hour (as a visitor) They would not let me drive away from their building. I had to call somebody to pick me up, because I gave my husband a hug and a kiss and started crying and told him ""I love you, I just want you back home"". I would not take anybody I know to this messed up instituition. IT IS A BIG JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When the people are admitted, they are stuck in a building all day. They have a fenced in court yard, but patients are not aloud to go in there. People need some fresh air once in a while.
