I would not recommend this place for your child. My child was sent here after being involuntarily admitted. I understand privacy concerns, but this place has such a lack of communication that they apparently can’t even communicate with each other. My 12 year old who in the words of the doctor assigned to him is “very child-like” was put into a choke hold by a 15 year old one morning and it was never reported to me until he told me about it himself. When I called the nurse to ask about it, she hadn’t even heard of this happen... read more

ZERO STARS! I’ve seen 4 psych doctors in the last ten years that have all said, how has this place not been shut down by the State. Patients are pumped full of seizure meds for various mental issues and then released while still in psychosis. This place is some 1900s scary psych ward ish. They have a room with one concrete slab of a bed in middle of the room with a large metal door that locks you in with small 6”x6” window to see through and it’s barely at eye level. It’s so inhumane. I wish this place on no one with any kin... read more

I was here in this facility in September of 2023. One thing I do have to say the little girls like they had this girl who was there and she was there for a while like at that time it was 3 months!

Any who no one asked me if i was okay the time i was there no one cared about us all it was, was that we were forced to cooperate or get an extra day added on so instead of actually trying to better myself i was trying to... read more

Id rather be dead than at Vermillion inpatient! Ruthless people work there. Accept Mona the night nurse who illegally attempted to give me threats of a harmful nature. I want to sue them. And I'm working on that. Gross nasty stuff goes on like employees gossip about the clients...etc UNPROFESSIONAL AND THERE IS NO WAY I AM GOING TO LET THIS GO.

There are wonderful staff members and staff who need a lesson in kindness. The Nurse Practitioner Dr. Julie told my roommate (who had every right to leave of her own accord because she had been there more than 72 hours) that her 72 hours had been revoked and they were keeping her for 15 more days. I don't know if this is true but I hope she comes out soon because if it is true then that is against the law. The way they run that place is very disjointed. There is NO communication between departments. When I went it was to get... read more
