Specialization

  • Adult Addiction Detoxification
    All of the therapies — available on an inpatient, partial, or intensive outpatient basis, depending on the patient’s needs — work together to treat the disease of addiction and to cultivate strategies that can lead to a manageable, addiction-free life. The treatment team helps patients address issues related to their addiction, manage cravings, learn tools for recovery, and develop healthier relationships with others.
  • Dual diagnosis
    This track is designed for patients who have a psychiatric disorder co-occurring with an addiction. Ridgeview provides treatment and tools for the patient to work toward recovery from addiction, as well as to manage the psychiatric illness.

Water is not freely given (I was dehydrated for a month afterwards), staff is cruel and vindictive, no outside time, in 1 room 90% of the day, only 2 group therapy sessions a day that are inadequate, punished for showing emotions, standing up for more than a minute is deemed as violent behavior and you will be sedated and restrained, nurses are not aware of patients conditions and their triggers do not go! If anything this place only allowed my suicidal urges to increase. Please do not send your child there.

This was the worst experience ihave had it took a while to get in then they send you out for testing and you are gone for hours after you have waited hours about five hours just to go to the hospital then you come back and you put in room for another four to six hours and by the time you get assigned to a room it is the next day you have to start a so called therapy which was not one. No therapy through the day or anything we sit in a commons area all-day with nothing to do. Wow what a place

The most unethical hospital I have ever been to. Most of the staff is callus. DO NOT send a loved one to Ridgeview for rehabilitation! This is NOT a place where people get better.
