My daughter was sent here on a 51-50 involuntary hold. To preface this review I never expected the Ritz Hotel or that she would be treated like royalty. My 20 yr old daughter (with anxiety/mood issues) was placed in a ward with one older asian lady and ALL MEN, most of which had major mental issues/disorders. I find out that they intend to order a 52-50 (14 day hold) and request to speak to her doctor as she was NOT a threat to herself or anyone else which ARE the requirements for additional holds. I am told that her doctor just stepped out and will be back. An hour and a half later nothing...next I'm told he's not returning that night so I ask them to call him for me. They text him twice, no response (luckily not an emergency I guess). Later I'm told by a receptionist that 'this is a hospital, we have patients with psychosis, what do you expect?' We'll I expect that my daughter will be safe and not abused and harassed. I'm also told that the doctors don't talk to family, they deal with the patients. The next day I drive back and let them know that I will be waiting in the lobby until I speak to someone, I'm told the social worker will speak to me. I never saw them. However after several hours a nurse did come and speak to me, she listened to my concerns and said she would do what she could. About 45 minutes later she came back and told me that she had spoken to the doctor and my daughter would be released within an hour or two. I believe this facility has a lot of legal issues currently pending and a history of these issues and worse I just wasn't willing to risk my daughter becoming another victim in there. I threatened to tell the story to anyone that was willing to listen and that seemed to make things move. Eventually her doctor showed up, he asked her 'are you suicidal' and 'are you a danger to others', she answered no to both and he released her....that was it! While waiting I heard horror story after horror story from other parents and family members coming in and out.

CR

    I am extremely concerned after reading the horrific reviews about the facility. My loved one checked in today and I seriously want to go out there at 11pm and have him checked out. I’m so worried, this indeed is not comforting to hear/read about at ALL. If I call for an update don they actually let us speak to the patient?

    I have read the reviews on this site and it sounds like a lot has changed since I was here. My experience was a lifesaver! I am Dualdiagnose alcoholic/drug addiction/bipolar/ diabetic. I spent 17 days in this facility and wanted to stay longer as I was scared and did not trust myself out in the world. I attend meetings AA and Dual diagnoses AA meetings inside the facility . I worked with a Dr Manning and he finally got me dial in and on the correct medication and would keep Communication open with my outside Dr. I am sill on this exact medication he put me on. I attended there out patient program 5 days a week 9-5 and counselor for 6 weeks. I will have 10 years sober on 11/22/18 no Manic/ depression Episodes . I am so grateful for and to Las Encinas I would not have the life I have today without them. They gave me the tools to be able to stay sober and sain. Now I attend AA got a sponsor and did the 12 steps I would not have understand how viral this would be without the help of Las Encinas Rehab. All I can say is when you get clean it’s uncomfortable It’s not pretty remember that. It’s not a Vocation and you did not have control over your life before you walked into there doors. So let go and just listen just do your great thinking is not so great and that is why you are there. I am so great full I hope you get it!

      My daughter was admitted there on July 25 under Coroner admit. Hospital not in her network. Social worker asked her for 3,000.00 to cover admission. A list of hospitals were emailed to social services and asked not to send her to her sisters address. She did not follow up, sent her to her sisters address and she was dead less than 24 hours after discharge.

      This is the worst place you can imagine. It needs to get shut down! Please do not send anyone you love to this place. My experience - I meet my roommate and he is on his way out the room. He shakes my hand and tells me to "play the game". Freeky way to start but he was right! I'm still traumatized and its a year later - Freezing Cold Showers with nurses checking in every 5 min - A patient got in argument with a nurse. Later when that patient asked for pretzels or anything to eat, the nurse said no, then gave snacks to other patients right in front of her. - I was completely quiet the whole time I was there only answering to what they asked and playing "the game" to get the hell out. One day when I was just sitting there, the nurses looked at me and said "look at that quiet little mouse behaving so well". I couldn't believe it! If I was to speak up I knew from experience from other patients It could get messy with these nurses and you end up with no phone calls, - Water is not accessible to patients bc they might try to "drown" themselves. You need to find a nurse when they are ready they will go open up their office and give you a little 2 inch cup filled with water. They get super annoyed if you ask for a refill. - I had my blood drawn every day for a week. They messed up on something which they never gave me answers about and I had no say in it! My one damn fear is needles. I can do almost anything else but damn they would wake you up at 4am every morning because its the perfect time your body has no food or water and they take a ton of blood. I swear both of my arms the veins were disgusting and you could see a hole on where they kept sticking the needles. They switched arms bc one was done. I'm cringing and laughing writing this. I can't believe it was real. - I was on a 51/50 and the doctor didn't come to see me for the first 3 days because he was busy with his other practice in "Burbank", so I was there for nothing those days until he came. NO JOKE! -The beds were wood with a tiny thin so called mattress, tiny thin blanket and a itty bitty tiny thin pillow in the freezing cold. "NO you may not get extra bankets or pillows". I made it work with my sweatshirt and the towels. - A patient came in and they put her in the patient gown, but it was too small. The patient was ill, so she didn't know whats going on. The gown went down to right below her waist. We could see everything and she would sit on the cold chairs with nothing on and the nurses did nothing! - Food was a joke go and see for yourself what they bring up to the psych ward patients. - You have a very small room for all the patients to hang out in. Cages on the windows. - Every family that came to visit their loved one in this place went crazy on the staff. They couldn't believe the environment, how they are treated, blah blah blah etc. etc. - We went outside once whole week I was there. The "outside" was a cage about 20ft by 15ft and you get 15 minutes -I grew alot there bc I got to help patients but I never got help getting medicated for my bipolar disorder
