I was a patient at Rosewood Ranch for about two months, and it was quite the experience. How effective was the treatment? It was okay, but I\'d say it\'s all temporary. They do a good job in making sure you are stable enough to leave, and trust me, they drill relapse prevention to a max, but there was something missing. There were scheduled lectures in the week, such as body image, nutrition, and relapse prevention plans, but the only groups I remember doing were relapse prevention and nutrition. Most of the time, the body image group was canceled because some staff was unable to make it or had planned over us. Shouldn\'t a body image group be a priority? Now don\'t even get me started on therapy. \"1-hour session once a week\", I\'d say I got maybe 10-30 minutes if my therapist remembered that she had me as a patient. And in those sessions, nothing that my previous therapist had done for me was covered at all. The dietician did most of the work for the therapist in my experience. To add, they shoved more kids in there than the maximum capacity was several times during my stay, and it got awfully uncomfortable and cramped. There\'s only so much space. But it wasn\'t all negative, I must say. The nutrition lectures were very informative and useful. The therapists would also come in every day of the week and do a process group, which was a nice way to relate to your peers, although it caused a lot of drama in the group as well. For accommodations and amenities, I had a mixed experience. They had a lot of fun games, but most of the pieces were missing. They had a lot of decks of cards, but none of them were complete. They had Just Dance, which was by far the best thing ever. Once a week we would meet with the important people that controlled the rules and everything, and they did a good job at repairing things that we asked to repair, but they were terrible at giving us physical things that we wanted, such as markers and playing cards. For the rooms, most of them were great. They were decently roomy, and they were kept very clean. For the amenities, everything is kind of over-hyped on the website. There is no horseback riding, but there are horses. There is a pool, but it is not very clean and is barely used (in my experience). There is music therapy, which is actually very fun, but isn\'t really therapy as much as sitting around and singing. I think that\'s all I can say. The dietician was pretty excellent, although I know of other experiences where the patient and the dietician did not get along. She did a good job at re-introducing food into my diet. The foods that you don\'t like will be respected, and overall the meals are tasty. The temperature of the food could be improved, yes, but the taste was good. Some of the meals were so awfully prepared to the point where not even the staff members would eat it. The general quality was haywire. I can\'t say much about the whole food thing because... eating disorder... but it was pretty good. I liked the snacks. So my overall opinion is this: Rosewood Ranch is the most bittersweet destination on earth. I love the people I met there, and I\'m happy with how I left, but I could make a million complaints about how this place is run. When looking at it from a distance, it seems like a cute little solution to a big scary problem, but up close it is a dysfunctional waste of time. But hey, this is just my experience.

We have only wonderful things to say about Rosewood Ranch in Wickenburg....we traveled from NJ to get our daughter the best possible help. She had been to Renfrew previously...bad experience as they have adolescents and adults together. The psychiatrist and counselors are terrific! The medical doc exceptional....she discovered issues with our daughter’s diabetes that our own doc here in NJ did not. Their 3-day family workshop was incredible...: I highly recommend Rosewood Ranch in Wickenburg if your loved one needs help..

Rosewood Medical Center is by far the worst treatment Center I have ever been to. I have been there 2 times (the second time I pleaded to go somewhere else but was forced there)... First off, my nutritionist was a very young individual (will not name names) who was just out of college. He had no previous eating disorder treatment experience except that he HAD an eating disorder and was able to "cure" himself on his own. Second, My therapist continued to lie to me. She promised me that she would give me the threatening emails my parents were sending and then when I requested them she would not give them up. She also provided me with no help at all except to make me feel more alone and vulnerable. Third, the kitchen staff has no idea what they are doing. They have no knowledge of exchanges and continuously messed up. I was missing a protein on my plate on one meal and when I asked, the kitchen staff member replied that my protein was the asparagus. There were many other instances like this and portion sizes continued to change, Also, my first stay they allowed 3 dislikes and when I went this passed time you have none. Also, unlike other facilities, you have no choice whatsoever of your meals. Other places I have been to give you AT LEAST 2 options. Now with the "equine therapy," the horses were basically there just for show. We got no time with them whatsoever. The obstacle course never happened either and even if it did, you had to be at your goal weight to participate (many people get discharged once they get to there goal weight). The first time I was there you only had to be at a certain percentage at which was safe to participate. This allowed more than 1 or 2 people to do it. It was the same for the walks this most recent time. My first stay there, I was able to participate in walks all the time, and this last time my weight was higher and I still never once got to participate (only like 2 people were cleared, ridiculous). Now, there was one therapist there that actually cared about the patients. I doubt he is still there though but I remember every one of us would go to him for the honest truth because no one else told us anything. BE WARNED..... If you decide to go to Rosewood, the minute they take your things you lose ALL FREE WILL. Many people I was there with were lied to, told anything they wanted to hear over the phone, and then once you get there they do whatever they want to you. All they care about is keeping you there as long as possible. They allow you very little time to communicate with the outside world (3 phone calls, 3x/week). You are not allowed to go to your room from 8am until 9pm. You are constantly watched. The nurses treat you like crap. They don't give you any info on your treatment plan and give you no involvement in your recovery (even if you are over 18). I was in the Marine Corps. and I was treated better in bootcamp than how they treated me here. I have been to other facilities and this one id BY FAR THE WORST!

For the most part Rosewood was okay, the Ranch was decent, the problem came when I went to Capri. There was a therapist who should not be a therapist. She was rude. If you go to Capri- beware of this individual, I do not recommend this place since they hire people like that.

I can't say enough about how shocked I was at everything about this clinic. I am a large person and they accomodated me like you wouldn't believe. My meal plan was well thought out y and my therapist quickly got to the core of issues it took a year for others to find but not as in depth. I was crying in our first session and I don't cry. It was like these two ladies just knew me before I spoke. I didn't get to stay long cuz of insurance but I didn't need to. The staff was amazing and I walk out a better person.

JHACO accredited, experiential therapies, psychiatrists, therapists, dieticians, full time nursing staff were strengths. Treatment is expensive. Rosewood has been around for 20 years. The eating disorder treatment there is top notch. Rosewood provides many different therapeutic approaches. Different things work for different people. Several experiential therapies are also included such as equine therapy, canine therapy, low ropes course, art therapy, music therapy, yoga and tai chi to name a few.

Excellent treatment enter for eating disorders. They helped me get on the road to recovery. The food is pretty good at the Residential level. PHP is very close to residential, but with a lot more outings into the community. They are 12-step based. The program was excellent a few years ago. They were more recently bought out by a large corp. and I feel as though their programing went down hill somewhat. I would still recommend this facility to any one struggling with an eating disorder.

Looking for an inpatient care hosptial for desperate help. She is worse now than ever. They seem cold and don't care. Extremely rude and harsh with patients. They sent my daughter to a regular hospital and did not properly check on her. They have patients belongings locked up and it took me two weeks to get some of her things mailed to me and I paid high rates for shipping.
