Mesa Vista saved my life. I was there to detox from alchohol addiction. The staff was friendly, compassionate and professional. They went above and beyond battling my insurance provider and got me into the Sharp McDonald Center. This isn't a hotel, it's a hospital..If you're worried about how the blankets or beds feel, you need to start thinking about why you're there... Two months ago I celebrated five years of sobriety. If it weren't for Mesa Vista (and the McDonald Center) I wouldn't be alive to write this review. THANK YOU Mesa Vista!!!

5 star rehab facility. The food is so good you won't want to leave. The best staff, fun games, and you'll meet exciting new friends who help you smuggle in cigarettes.

I recently went to this place. In the inpatient program for adolescents. I must say a few things about this place. First of all the beds are terrible. The blankets are like towels. (My roommate and I stayed up all night the first night joking about it actually.) Second of all, the food (most of it anyway) is garbage. There were a few things on the menu that weren't bad though like the pizza and the sausage dog. So if you go here, always get those 2 things on the menu. But there are positives to this place as well. Most of the staff are very friendly and are there only to positively encourage you and get you the proper help. But if only they improved on the living quarters...

This is the place to go if you are suicidal, addicted, and just need help. Gotta have health insurance though. The meetings are legit and anyone can attend AA, NA, for recovery.

Dr. Dara Schwartz is an amazing clinical psychologist! She has helped our family immensely as we begin to develop a care giving plan for my 80 year old father. THANK YOU, DR. SCHWARTZ! THANK YOU SHARP MESA VISTA!

I have been to Sharp Mesa Vista inpatient and outpatient programs and it is the best treatment I've received. You have to be you're own advocate and tell them what you need but once they know they help you. They treat you like an individual and respect your decision to either take medication or not. They explained to me the options I had and didn't bother me that I chose to not take any prescriptions which I appreciated. I'm in cognitive group there outpatient now and it took two weeks to get used to it. They've helped me a lot. My therapist has found resources for me and my psychiatrist has helped with documents that I need for my medical leave claim. A psychiatric hospital is not exactly where anyone wants to be but sometimes you need it. It is hard to adjust and hard to be around others who have more extreme symptoms than you do but it's worth it. If you're reading this I hope you know that wherever you decide to seek treatment just know it's okay to ask for help. No one's judging you as much as you judge yourself and I hope you get through this. It's difficult to be in a position in life where you're considering mental health treatment but it means you're willing to heal and that's awesome.

Sharp Mesa Vista gas always treated me well, I have been in and out since I was 16. From the adolescent unit (CAP 3) to the adult units that I have been in (EW1, EW2, SR) this hospital has saved me numerous times. I am diagnosed Borderline Personality Disorder and the staff treated me with respect and kindness (BPD has a lot of stigma) My last stint there, I did ECT with Dr. Fidaleo and never in my life have I felt this good. Dr. Fidaleo is an amazing psychiatrist who you can tell really cares. I've had other psychiatrist there who were equally as good, such as Dr. Jafar. The food is good, rooms are very nice. The nursing staff are amazing. Especially on East Wing 2, the open unit. Stephanie, an evening nurse is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. Also, Richard, the mental health associate was like a father figure to me while I was there (I am usually the youngest patient in the adult units, I am now 20) Thank you Mesa Vista for everything you have done for me.

My mother was recently released from the behavioral unit for seniors. She has multiple issues including anxiety, depression, early stages of dementia and an addiction to pain medicine. Dr. Khalafian is an exceptional psychiatrist! He is kind compassionate and very sensitive to the patient's needs yet he also understands the pharmacological agents that are necessary to bring the chemistry of the brain back into a more balanced approach. He called me at least twice to inform me on my mother's condition and prognosis. He listened to my concerns as her son. He and the nursing staff were well on top of most of the issues that my mother faced, both physical and mental. They were very attentive to her needs and yet realistic to what they could achieve as goals. Also, my mother's social worker Tracy was a very efficient at setting up the necessary discharge contacts to ensure that my mother would receive further treatment. The issues of mental health are complex and difficult at times but Sharp Mesa Vista has done an exceptional job and continues to have a deep sense of commitment to its patients. My only concern is the limited number of beds available at a given time for such a large and growing need in our community.

Situated in San Diego, California, Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.

Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society. Since many addicts relapse, it is inherently important that they avoid certain settings or social circles that will pressure them to use.

At Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, we believe that all addicts have the courage within to overcome their drug and alcohol addiction. Through the constant support of counselors and professional advisors working with addict’s daily, recovery is possible. Despite how long one has been an addict for, recovery is still absolutely attainable. Treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach and at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, treating each patient with individuality is of utmost importance.

Breaking the vicious cycle of addiction is tough, but with professional counselors and effective treatment options in place, sobriety is closer than it seems. Get in touch with Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital today at www.Sharp.Com/mesavista to learn more about how recovery can help pave a new life path. When the final level of sustained sobriety is reached, a feeling of contentment will ensue and this is something to be extremely proud of.
