Comment: My first hour there I had a panic attack because I was lied to about the program. Nurses told me I was overreacting and that if I didn’t stop having a panic attack they would never let me go. Blood drawn twice, both times without my consent. Nurse grabbed my upper arm hard enough to bruise. Was denied meals for having panic attacks. Had nearly all personal belongings confiscated including my coping mechanisms. Nurse touched me repeatedly despite me saying no and blamed me for a plumbing issue that I had nothing to do with. When a group of patients, including me, tried to report her for her misconduct (which included mocking a twelve year old’s SI scars and saying she would never find love with scars like that) we were all released or transferred out of nowhere. Very restrictive environment, terrible activities. We were not allowed anything that they could possibly think of a way for us to hurt someone with (including shoelaces). One phone call was allowed and that was monitored and limited. We were allowed visitors as long as they were related to us.
Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpatient
