I have been to about every psychiatric hospital in northern California but I will honestly tell you that John Muir was one of the highest quality hospitals I had the pleasure to be treated at. I have had around 3-4 average length stays and each time was consistent in quality care. The rooms are clean and safe and are monitored responsibly. The food is surprisingly good and they went out of their way to satisfy my vegan dietary needs. In fact, upon arrival they gave me a survey and asked my fool preferences, even for snacks. The staff are absolutely amazing! I'm not sure if they are still employed but I can think of several who went above and beyond for patients even when they didn't have to. The groups were also very captivating and helpful. They got very personal and invited you into a space where you could comfortably and personally share everything you need to get off your chest instead of just giving memorized speeches of the same things we're sick of being told. In conclusion, I owe a lot of my recovery to this hospital and I'm thankful to its staff, counselors, and psychiatrists.

I was in the Drug and Alcohol Detox part of John Muir Behavioral Pavilion back in 2008 Just to clarify there are Separate programs. Drug and Alcohol Detox Rehab, Adult Psychiatric Unit and Children and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit. The majority of negative reviews are from the Children's & Adolescent Unit which is very different from the Drug & Alcohol Program. I went in to detox off over 100 mg of Methadone but was told I also had to detox off my Anxiety medication. The first 2 days weren't so bad and I was given medication to help with the withdrawals, Methadone is the worst drug to get off, worse than heroine. Dr Von Stief is very educated about addiction and explains how each substance effects our mind and body, also the nurses were very compassionate, by the 6th day I was really sick and couldn't sleep, had restless legs so at 2:30 am the night nurse stayed up and talked to me, she also cleaned the jet tub for me to take a hot bath. The counselors were also great, as sick as I felt I went to groups and the NA/AA meetings. I was in for 10 days and learned a lot about addiction.The rooms were clean, bathroom clean, everyone shares a room, they avoid putting patients with the same substance addiction in the same room which I think is a very good idea. If you're ready to get clean and sober I highly recommend John Muir Pavilion in Concord, The food is also very good.if you're able to eat.

This is a very good medically supervised detox. The Doctor is very knowledgeable and experienced. The staff are very kind and will do all that they can to help you , they also are considerably experienced in the field of addiction and recovery. No one here will judge you, no matter how many times you have relapsed, or if it is your first time . The food is better than some restaurants , the snacks are also good. The rooms are clean as well as the bathrooms. If you want to detox from alcohol, and, or drugs comfortably. Then this is the place that you want to go. They will also help you with further rehabilitation and placement after detox. Also connecting you with professionals to help you so you will be able to stay clean and sober

Okay, so you see all these reviews, and these teens trying to be edgy, but let me give you an actual review. I was hospitalized April 2017 for suicidal thoughts and sever anxiety. As all patients are, they are put on "Line of Sight" for 24 hours, just to the staff can watch over them and have them be safe. You can sleep in the day room (In front of the nurses desks) or in another room nearby. After that, you are free to roam around. I was fed well, and it was pretty good food too. Better than school food, but not a five star meal. Something you would cook up at home to put it in perspective.We had group time, and other activities like Gym and expressive arts. At night we do journals, where we write and answer very simple questions about our treatment, and progress. You sleep with a room mate and share a bathroom with them too. The boys and girls are separated for most of the time, except for gym and art/school. All in all, yes I didn't like it, but why would you like being in a hospital? It was a fine facility, and there were some bad nurses, but also some good ones too.

John Muir Behavioral Center saved my husbands life. I hold the highest regards for the entire medical staff within the center and also all of the counselors that spoke. I was able to visit every day with my husband during the detox phase and attended all the counseling sessions I could on the weekends with my husband. I found it a great help to me and my coping with the disease of alcoholism. Anyone who has negative comments, I believe is still fighting the "want" to do better for themselves. Thank you to John Muir... 10months sober and counting!!
