Name of Hospital: Brattleboro Retreat
City, State/Province, Country: Brattleboro, VT, USA
Number of Stars: 4.5
Comment: Brattleboro Retreat is a campus unit dedicated to treating mental health and issues of substance abuse. VERY thorough security, to the point where they don’t allow things like necklaces or drawstrings because of choking hazards. Staff is well-trained and incredibly accepting. There is a unit specifically for LGBT patients, and most of the staff that runs it are LGBT as well! Activities throughout the day are decent, group therapy sessions but mostly there’s free time with art supplies and playing cards. Only complaint is that the only time outside is in a fenced in area, once every other day. Otherwise a great unit, would definitely recommend to anyone LGBTQ.
Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): inpatient
Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: bisexual trans man
