Providing substance abuse treatment programs for teens and adults, Silver Hill Hospital offers inpatient, transitional living and outpatient programs. Inpatient treatment primarily relies on medically-based therapies. Transitional living programs emphasize more behavioral and psychological treatment strategies.

My son was a patient at SH a few years ago and it was an excellent springboard to his long-term recovery. He attended the 28-day TLP program as well as the intensive outpatient program which help further transition him back into the real world. Not only did he receive support, guidance and tools, but our family did as well. They conducted an excellent 4-day educational program for family members which was extraordinarily helpful for us as well. I highly recommend!

Kicked my sister out of inpatient for no discernible reason (had no broken any rules - which they admitted) and made her leave, in the snow, with no notice, on Christmas Eve. Didn’t bother to refund any of the $50,000 we’d paid and only got a week’s worth of programming for. All of these famous rehabs are trash and capitalist hogs. Most people going to rehab need TRAUMA treatment which they are not capable of providing here. And in fact, clearly, make trauma worse. Save yourself the time and trouble

I have been to a number of treatment facilities and Silver Hill was the best by far. I was in the DBT transitional living program and everyone from the treatment team, to the house staff, to the cafeteria staff, was incredibly kind and respectful. This was the first facility I've been to where I was treated like a person first, not simply a patient or a diagnosis. The treatment was thorough, comprehensive and scientifically-based, which, as a medical student, I greatly appreciated. After going through 3 hospitalizations, 2 partial programs, ketamine treatments, ECT and countless medication cocktails this past year, I had very little hope going into this program. I can confidently say that Silver Hill saved my life and I am so grateful I had the ability to receive treatment here. It is ridiculously expensive, that is for sure, but for me, it was the best investment I could have ever made for myself. Thank you, Silver Hill!

I went to Silver Hill in the early 1980s to detox from Methadone maintenance. After they weaned me down from 110 mg to 0 in less than two weeks, I went through two solid weeks of soul crushing insomnia without any help from Silver Hill's doctors or staff before I couldn't take it anymore and went back on methadone maintenance. I am still on methadone maintenance in 2020 (44 years now) and the suffering I experienced at Silver Hill discouraged me from ever trying to detox again, They did send me one very large bill though. The facility is rather elegant, but comfort isn't important when you are in outrageous pain. In my book, this place damaged me for life due to their total lack of knowledge in dealing with methadone detoxes.

    Low standard of care, poorly qualified employees. HORRIBLE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!! I spent 6 weeks here, paid tens of thousands for one of their 28 day programs, and was appalled by the poor standards, the most outrageous example of which is the Silver Hill practice of giving you 2 hours of individual treatment per week with poorly qualified providers. I was in their DBT program and this is what I got: 1) a psychiatrist who had gone to med school in the Caribbean 2) a therapist who was not even a licensed psychologist, but rather a poorly trained social worker Also, the food is low grade cafeteria fare.
