Comment: I first came to Forest View for the Partial Hospitalization program, and was in it for 2 weeks. We would have a group therapy session ranging in topic throughout the day, with groups for trauma and other specifics breaking off at different points. We would meet with a psychologist individually each day, with time to discuss symptoms and home life. Most people are prescribed Seroquel the first day, with specific meds added if necessary. Overall very nice, lunch is provided. I was moved to inpatient following a sleeping med overdose and stayed there for 5 days. The daily structure was relaxed and had optional groups, the staff were helpful and friendly, the meals were very good for a hospital (i was allowed a hot chocolate with every meal!). Tv and movies available, plus daily time for art. I would highly recommend both partial and inpatient to others.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Partial and Inpatient
