Do NOT BRING A LOVED ONE HERE for benzo detox. In short, my husband went in taking 1.5mg clonazepam. Day 1 they increased him to 2.0mg. Day 2 they continued to give, added Seroquel, he collapsed in front of the doctor. Not the doctor, not the attending nurse at the time, NO ONE called me to tell me. My husband told me the following day. At this time the attending nurse called me and said “we have a problem, that was not supposed to happen. We are now on Day 3, at this points the DOCTORS told me they didn’t know what to do with him. That this was “weird” and I would have to solve going to a neurologist and gastroenterologist. HOW THE EFF was I going to do that with someone with CPTSD, full blown agoraphobia, and now even more extreme medical trauma? OH FORGOT, he hadn’t slept in 4 days because every 15 minutes they shine a flashlight in your face to ensure you’re not dead from all the drugs they have given you. At 72 hours of no sleep we go manic. I’m not a doctor and I know that. so now Day 4, since they “still couldn’t figure it out” they decided to give him ANOTHER drug. This time Remeron. and btw still on Klonopin 2.0mg. Day 5 is when they decided he was to check out, with no sleep, a rollercoaster of drugs, and an even more sick man than when I came to SS for help. DO NOT bring your loved one to this facility unless you want them to be FULL of drugs. I’ve been sober for several years, and many of my friends in the community told me this place was “good but they keep you on a lot of drugs”. Because my husband is not an addict, they told me they could help with the detox. NOPE just made it worse. Since this incident in January I have vastly educated myself on the tapering of Klonopin and no medical journal advises to put Someone from 1.5 to 2.0 back to 1.0mg in five days. It is actually something that should be done over months even years.

This place should be investigated and shit down!! They stole my clothes, threatened me and put on a water pill that almost killed me! They Won’t return your calls and treat you like crap!! Basically it’s a jail. I saw the Dr one time in the five days I was there. I believe there’s also some insurance fraud going on there. The staff was full of ATTITUDE. It’s nothing like there website. The place is a joke
