This place is SO HORRIBLE. I went in for anxiety and depression and small Xanax situation and of course they shove Ativan down my throat like 3 times a day 2 pulls at once on top of buspar and trazedon at night.. btw I was not worried 10-13. The staff are the rudest people I’ve ever met. There’s no therapy only group sessions with recovering addicts who work there. “Lock down” is a JOKE. They dope you up with meds and place you in front of a tv. I went outside 3 times in 7 days and all you can do is sit on a bench.. no activities AT ALL. They have crayons to color, a tv, and books that are torn to pieces and magazines. You might get colored pencils but they take them away if no one is watching. OH and they lost my phone and clothes. I had to dig through other people clothes to find mine and of course I was balling.. it was my release date and my caseworker told me to dry my face or I’ll stay longer.. this place is a joke DO NOT GO. I was so sick when I got home from the meds and I’m in the process of suing them. It’s a very unhealthy environment

Please be ware of this place! They damaged our granddaughter severely. They would not listen to her mother, our daughter. They did not do a good evaluation of her mental readiness. She had very little counseling or treatment by a licensed doctor but met with "staff" a few times. They drugged her severely and she received very little real counseling. They did however teach her how to stand up for her 'rights', that she wasn't accountable to anyone but herself. They prolonged her stay after she was begging to come home - in my opinion to milk the insurance company. It will take our family a long time to recover from the damage done by this very poorly run institution. Run, don't walk, away from this facility.

I have mixed feelings about this facility. My husband is in dire need of help and I am 110% onboard with him getting the help and tough love that comes along with that help. A few things I am finding troubling. He has a prescription for a low dose of medication that he has been taking for years. To suddenly be forced, by the staff at Pinewood, to stop his daily medications is not advisable as it can cause seizures and increase his panic and depression. However, this is exactly what has happened. I feel there needs to be some better judgment when it comes to patients who have been prescribed medications before entering this facility. It is dangerous and irresponsible to deny the patients medications. i plan to continue looking into this matter because, as a family member who can only speak to him 2 times each day at 5 mins per call, I'm feeling a bit confused on just how they are handling the people that are there for help. Very disheartening. Again, I'm not in denial that my husband needs to be there and continue with his long-term care but, I feel the patients should be treated with more care regarding their mental and physical help while in "lock down". Someone, I suppose, needs to advocate for them/on their behalf as they are basically being ignored with these types of requests.

Very cold and rude staff. I understand that some patients are hard to deal with but treating the family rudely and so uncaring is unacceptable. Especially ones who have never been through this before and just have questions.

The staff was very friendly and never acted "sterile" when communicated with nurses or counselors. They always spoke to me with respect and even helped me make the right decisions regarding my loved one that was attending the program. I'm so glad they were there to help him through this mile stone to his recovery.

I would definitely return if I ever need help again. I was treated like a person and not a disability or illness. Safety is a priority for PW. They are there for stabilization and treatment until you can be released to long-term facility or back home. My family didnt have a very good experience. They called to check on me, but the facility wouldn't give out information without my intake number which I had to give them. It's a comfort for the patient to know that only who you want to know about your treatment will get that information. The accomodations were kept nice and clean. The food was wonderful. They have rules to follow, which should be expected, and are easy to follow and abide by. I would recommend this facility for anyone in need of their services.

Pinewoods is a detox crisis facility. Residents need to understand that there job is to stabilize you. No its not the Betty Ford clinic, you have 3 wonderfull employees to oversee 20 residents. Do not criticiz them for supervising your detox in which they only have 72hrs. You recovery is your responsibility and it starts when you walk out the door. Thank you Pinewood for assisting in my 6yrs 4months recovery.

They have good intentions at PW and I got the overall sense that they truly did want to help people but they didn\'t listen as intently as they should have. Good intentions however can\'t get to crux of the problem if they don\'t listen to what the patient is telling them. If I would have had more time I would have stayed longer and trained everyone in the art of listening. I won\'t go back, nor would I recommend their services to anyone.☺

This place stinks! People in the medical and mental health industry don\'t comprehend anything of spirituality or how it affects people. Pills and naps don\'t cure things they don\'t comprehend. Even when proof of what I was saying when I was there was popping up on the news, they just scratched their heads and changed the channel. Don\'t waste your time!

They treat patients like criminals. They say they encourage family support but don\'t allow family to make contact with patient. They lie about phone hours. They are vague about how family can reach out to the patient.
