HORRIBLE!!!! My daughter has been there on more than one occasion and each time, she was misdiagnosed by a different physician and/or psychiatrist. The staff is rude. The patients are allowed to wander in and out of other people's rooms.

Acadia saved my life. I have been in a few mental hospitals, which never helped. The staff was very helpful ,polite and patient with me. My doctor came and seen me everyday. I would recommend Acadia to anyone that needs help.

This was the filthiest hospital I have ever been in. It is very easy to get into & extremely hard to get out. They will find a way to extend your stay even if you check yourself in voluntarily. They are crooks & it is definitely an insurance scam. If you love your loved one, don't check them in. I have been more traumatized by the treatment I received there, than I was before I went in. All adult patients, psychotic or chemically dependent, etc are housed together. They will lie straight to your face. Don't use this hospital!

Horrible place. Very incompetent staff! The lady working at the check-out counter in the clinic is a monster! Cold as ice! The morons actually lost my daughters records. It isn't bad enough that she never sees the same doctor, but they have to lose her records too? The morons she has seen don't bother to try and treat her, they just toss medication her way. I seriously question the education of every individual working in that clinic!

I went into acadia after I was presribed somehighly addictive medication that was for anxiety and Bipolar. I had been on this medication for 10 years. I heard that after so many years coming off this medication would mabye result in stroke or heart attack and it was worse than coming off herion. I was there for 6 days and did not see my doc. allthough I was taking alot of medication. On the last day after several attempts and getting rude my doc finally saw me. At the front desk where he called me a junkie in front of other patients and staff. He was very rude which put me on the defensive and I started to yell back. Anyway I had to leave AMA and was given no meds or suggested places to go for my treatment from withdrawls. I spent 2 months in total hell where my bloodpressure spiked everyday to stroke level and severe panic attacks that I was in the ER almost everyday and calling the paremedics. I called several places to help me but they did not take the insurance that I had. So , after paying a health care provoder to sit with me I could not take it anymore and went back. Saying I was clean from the meds for 2 months but my panic attacks and withdrwls would too much on my heart as it was in distress. They calmed me down and said I was welcome back where nurses could keep an eye on me and my meds would be strait. I was then put back on the same meds that I went in to get off of 3 different meds. Which after 2 months made me zombie state. So then It was complained I slept too much and then lowered the dose. I am still having troubles after being out 2 months of swimming head and forgeting things.
The staff was of poor attitude and yelled at me all the time. My case worker who would not let me talk to my husband or mother. Some of the male staff flirted with me as well as other patients. The eviroment I would say was and in and out process with getting your money. Finding out your life to use against you.
I am still in the same place I was 6 months ago except I am severly medicated. I am trying to find another hospital. This will be my 3rd attept to get better mentally and physically

My son was in your facilty recently. I do not think his overall treatment was good. A couple of things I would like to add...first my husband and I went to visit him. We were aloud to visit in the dining facility. The table we sat at was very dirty. The overall smell of the place was unpleasant (reminded me of a nursing home) so one suggestion...get rid of your current cleaning staff and hire another one or train the ones you have. Secondly....the staff was unfriendly. The young lady that checked us in was very unpleasant. There were a couple of young ladies on duty during the visit that strolled around swinging thier keys around thier fingers (you know who you are). And last but not least, I phoned up there to get some information on how my son was doing. I asked for the head nurse on duty. I spoke with I believe Jill..Jill you should look at a patients chart before you start blurting out information that is incorrect...My conclusion....well I only visited for one hour and I can tell you just from that one visit I hope my son never has to go back....If you are looking for good quality, professional help, I would recommend looking else where. It is sad that we don't have a great facility for people in Abilene and the Big Country to be able to go to for quality care. A temporary solution to a permanent problem. And to the Doctors....your staff is only as good as you are.

Horrible!!! I had male patients trying to sneak into my room at night (uninvited!)and I was made to move into another pod at 2 am because of it. Jeff and Pam were the only nice ones, the rest treated us like it was a cattle call. Chicken every single day but not bad. Their doc was horrible (not vidal, he was cool) had me on 1000 mgs of serequel and it made me hallucinate all the time. Steer clear!!

i had to place my child in this place for some emotional disturbances. i would not recommend this place for any one adult or child.just try to get an appointment before a triplicate prescription runs out.not to mention a case worker that is totally unqualified to give even help a dog. my child is still having problems and cant sleep.try and call to get this addressed and the Doctor wont even look at her chart .we are going on 5 days with less then 7 hours sleep total. and the response i received was ohhh the doter mite get time to look at her chart when he gets in tomorrow.hmmm sounds like they are real concerned about after patient care.the entire time my child was there i was never granted a meeting with her doctor.nor did we receive any family counseling.untill after she was released then the counselor that we did get had never even seen my childs case and had no idea what my family needed all in all this place made our problems worse.

While there they changed my meds to one that made me very depressed & suicidal. Took me off them & keep me there to observe. Some off the staff were rude while other very nice. Out of 9 chances to go out for fresh air a day I was lucky to get 1 or 2, seems smokers have all the rights there.I hated my stay there because of this issue. I was told there was not enough staff to let us both out. If you need such a place like this to go for help, I would recommend to go somewhere else.

While I was there everything and everyone was very nice. The food was very good. The only complaint I have is with myself. They wanted me to go to another part of the hospital and get another 2 weeks of a different care. I didn't because my family wanted me at home. If I can get the hospital to accept me back I will go and work as hard as I can. My family deserves better. I am back to thinking suicide might be the answer. Acadia is the one I will go back to if they will accept me.

i was in the adolecent part of the hospital. it was the worst place ive ever been. the food was disgusting. they had this role thing with chicken and it had apples in it. and i only liked the tech amber. she was cool. and there was a guy and girl who both worked there and they were married but worked on diffrent shifts. the counselors were AWFUL! the only question they asked was "so how do you feel about that?" they didnt care about you. they only cared about the check that was coming in from the insurance company. and my doctor didnt even know how to speak english well. so i couldnt understand him. and all he would do is get me hiked up on meds. hospitals dont give a about you. they just want your money. thats exactly what ive learned in there. i was forced to be in there by my parents. because i got in trouble with the cops and had cuts all down my arms and legs. and was heavily on bars. then after getting out of that dump i had to go to juvi because of the cops. cops and hospitals dont care at all. thats why i can only trust myself. and the only one that understands me is me. and i just hide all emotions because of that place. i hope there happy!..

My husband and I went in for an assessment at this place (referred by our family doctor) and somehow I was voluntarily convinced I needed a couple days rest for some recent stressful events that had occurred. All good stress, I was just overworked. I entered hell when I walked into the main "ward". Please refer to above review for some of the details, but I can add many more awful things that happenned. I was there for only 6 hours until I could leave after signing an AMA. Absolutely horrible place!!! We have really good insurance also. Avoid this place by all means!!! If the above reviewer can contact me somehow or repost a review, I would love to help you in any way I can.

There are no words to describe how horrible this place is. I went there because I needed help with depression that was more than I could deal with. I wanted help. There was none here, and my trust in anyone in medicine is destroyed. It is certain that I will never ask for help again, from anyone. The food was like what you might expect to find in a prison, and diabetic needs are ignored. The nurses - except for one, a man working the evening shift - were absolutely unprofessional. The techs were untrained and unhappy in their jobs - again, except for one who also worked the evening shift; his wife worked the morning shift, but their attitudes were totally opposite. Very basic needs were denied. The best part was the psychiatrist, Dr. Vidal, who genuinely cared about helping his patients, but it is impossible to see a doctor any more often than once every 4-5 months, which is insane, after being put on new medicines while in the hospital. I find my situation hopeless, and finding any help at all for it is less than hopeless, but I certainly cannot tell anyone at all what is going on in my mind. The general hopelessness is more than I can deal with; I've exhausted my efforts; now I have no option, because I cannot seem to manage to find my way, on my own, and certainly not from health care.Thanks to them for helping to drain my insurance coverage!
