I see that a lot of people are upset with this place, and I'm so sorry that happened to you! But my experience was really good. I was in Colorado Unit and the staff there was sooo nice. I told them before I left how much I appreciated them. One of them talked me through a breakdown, and assured me everything was going to be ok. Then the day before my discharge, another staff member saw me crying and took time to give me a charming pep talk. The daily groups throughout the day are pretty cool. Some of them are not so useful, but I felt the majority were really fun and worth attending. Of course there were some pretty awesome patients I got to meet too, but even if they hadn't been there, I still would've enjoyed my time at Laurel Ridge. My psychiatrist there was good about giving me "homework" to do to boost my self esteem, and he seemed to genuinely care. I saw another patient have a bad experience with another doctor there, but that was the only "bad" thing I saw. I sort of miss it there, actually. So for everyone who had a bad experience, not ALL of this place is badly managed. :) I only gave it four stars because yes there are some things they could do better but overall I am satisfied

I have been to multiple mental hospitals and this one was by far the best one. I was put in the acute adolescent unit and I actually found it quite helpful. The staff was always very nice to me. They gave me any meds, food, drink, blankets, toiletries, etc. that I requested. They had group therapy all day and it was quite helpful. Also, when I needed it, they always had someone I could talk to about whatever was going on. I could tell the staff genuinely cared about me. At other hospitals the staff treated me very poorly. I was denied meals, insulted, refused information about my meds, and many other negligent instances. However, this was not the case at Laurel Ridge. If I had to go to a hospital again, I'd choose Laurel Ridge.
Wow...these reviews are brutal. I was in the Partial hospitalization program as well as intensive out patient. I loved laurel ridge. I made great progress into getting well there- though unfortunately with a mental disorder like mine which likes to take weird turns, its hard to "recover" but I love knowing that they are there for me. I was sad to see most of the old staff go to the new hospital that just opened, SAB or whatever. But laurel ridge has been good to me. I got my meds on time, my psychiatrist actually works there, and i feel comfortable in the environment, plus the food isn't half bad. :)
