I had my problem with drinking and I was in the hospital. There is constant surveillance which I felt was good. Everybody was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The accommodation was excellent and the food was very good. We had two people in a room. Each bed has its own large-screen TV and a coffee room on each floor.
I had no idea what I was going to be experiencing. I don’t think I realized I was in a detox unit until I went to the rehab side. I did not find the detox experience bad. I took the medication, ate lovely meals, and talked to different people, psychiatrists, and doctors. I had a lovely roommate as well.
During my stay there, I only saw a psychiatrist twice. I’ve been in mental wards before and I was in Sheppard Pratt for a while where I met with my psychiatrist every day. Still, I’m not on the right meds.
It’s a beautiful place and I love it. It’s a great facility all around. The staff and the food were great. I liked the fact that I could custom-order a hamburger or a turkey meal. That was a huge benefit.
When I got to the recovery center, I was physically ill and throwing up. But the nurse for the in-process was good, although there was a ton of repetitive information. You had to in-process five different groups of people so some of the information was redundant. It gets a little old, especially when you’re not in your sharpest mind.
