Danger, Danger - Don't send your kids here. 7/19/2017

This place is the worst! Do not send your love ones here unless you want them to suffer. The staff can care less about your kids. They leave these kids unsupervised to allow other ill dangerous kids to attack other kids. Our love one has been attacked several times and the facility acts as if they are clueless. I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND how a mental facility has a 9ft swimming pool onsite. What were they thinking? These are mentally disabled kids and some that are dangerous. Why is a pool onsite? These kids appear to be over medicated and frightened. Sad to see most of these kids endure such abuse and no one is doing anything to help them. This place is just doing what they want to these poor kids and covering up the abuse. Clearly this place is neglecting these kids. All of the tragedies that have occurred here and they are still in business. This is just ashamed! These kids lives matter and they are innocent kids that are in need of support and love - not abuse. more

This place was hell 10/12/2012

I was there from 14 to 16. The place was hell. They had 7 south (agreesissve unit) and 7 north (people with sexual problems i.e. Gay, rapists, child molesters, people whod had been molested all in the same group). The place dosen't care about it's patients instead it views everyone as numbers. They had me on 32 pills a day inculuding 600mg of seroquel and 275 mg of thorazine. The place just dopes you up and leaves you. If you get into a fight (even if your just protecting your self as the won't interfere untill the fight actually begins) they add time unto your stay. YOu had innocent people forced to staythere because other places such as group homes, Juvees, Foster homes were full. Innocent people mixed up with dangerous people and the staff could care less. more

Laurel Heights is NOT the problem 5/16/2012

I was a client at Laurel Heights for 9 months back in 1999-2000 and today I have two graduate degrees and work in the healthcare field myself. The trick to Laurel Heights though is that they can only help children/teens who want to change their own behavior, their parents desire for their behavior to change is not enough. I attended high school an extra year when I got out to be able to go to college because of accreditation issues however I had no issues with that because I resolved my other issues first. Parents who would not send their kids to Laurel Heights over that issue need to ask themselves what the odds are their kids will graduate high school anyway without getting help. The staff here are great with their clients. They do not have "attitude" issues but it's also not their job to give parents daily updates they have weekly visitation hours during which parents can come visit their children and see progress for themselves. With only 3-4 staff on duty in a unit on a daily basis they may be busy controlling clients throwing furniture, cutting their wrists etc. they really aren't lazy they just don't have time to sit on the phone and gab. In terms of what I gained from my experience beyond what I came for I learned a great deal about people of other races and religious backgrounds and that really helped to prepare me for the real world. I also found the brothers and sisters I always wanted and never had growing up and true to my promise to them I never forgot any of them although we might have lost touch as I was going through other placements. In fact in grad school many times when I wanted to give up it was my promise to them that was able to keep me going as we all made a pact that if we were successful we'd use that influence to bring attention to issues we faced. Just felt the need to defend a great institution in the community. more
