We strive to do everything in our power to show our patients that they can succeed in every facet of their life, not just in treatment.

I decided to write a review of Riverwoods (yes, it actually has an 's' at the end) because, after being recently discharged after a 3.5 day involuntary stay, I decided to look this place up - I found very little useful information, and only these wildly different opinions that almost all start with a 1-2 star review. Yes, it is an uncomfortable, not all that clean, pain in the ass. And - if you were, or find yourself, a patient at this facility, then you (and I) did something to merit the waiver of rights granted by some doctor's signature; on a form that probably starts with the number 10 - and/or a drug or alcohol relapse. They are understaffed, I guess.... There is such an array of people in the inpatient ... thing ... that they tried to treat everyone equally - perhaps some people got less attention or "care" when they needed it. Some people got more - and they may or may not have needed it. Some people felt mistreated just because they were being treated the same as everyone else. I thought some staff members were more approachable than others, some were more professional than others, and most are doing the best they can given the situation. Some of it sucks for them sometimes, too (surprise?). Sometimes they gave quick, short (most reviews say "rude") answers to questions; but, due to what is obviously only apparent to a few people, I just accepted the answer and tried to be patient. Guess what? There are a lot of people and a lot of turnover going on at this place, and nothing makes anyone there more "special" than anyone else. If you respond negatively to a staff member, are you really surprised that they, in turn, appear to respond negatively to you? Just like many things, it depends more on the person than the place. And it probably all came down to which facility best matched your insurance and had space available at the same time - good luck finding any similar facility that is a "vacation", it's not supposed to be a vacation, despite what they might say during entrance "assessment". Also, oh my goodness, I must've answered the same or similar list of questions, asked by different people, at different times, and for different reasons, that it started to get ridiculous - um, computers ... maybe? Or I guess everyone can decipher all the handwriting scribbled between what turns into a binder of pieces of paper? ... And by correlating all that information, they find a good course of treatment for you....? ... No, this is essentially a holding area, but there is still good to be taken from it, and many people don't STAY at Riverwoods, they will likely find individualized care elsewhere, or they won't, and those that don't seem to have a good chance of winding up back in Riverwoods again.

Unfortunately, because most people either don't want anyone to know they were there or because of the bias in review processes you won't get to hear about how great this place actually is. I HATED that I was forced to be there but after accepting that I was stuck for a few days, due to a stupid mistake, I was able to truly benefit from the experience. I'm not able to speak on any other unit besides transitional BUT from what I saw in the staff I can assume other units are not as bad. The worst part of the entire experience was the kitchen, I would give it a 6. The food was tolerable and sometimes delicious. The flies were the worst in there. Most of the nurses and techs were very friendly and helpful, I'm currently working on a letter to corporate to single out the good and the bad. The establishment could be a bit cleaner but this is coming from a clean freak... I wasn't disgusted. The doctor I had sucked and had no presence at all but I saw other patient's doctors in and out regularly. Stay away from Dr Evans if at all possible, even staff complained about him. You don't see him until discharge and for 2 minutes. I met some great people there, people who needed help and were getting it. They could do better with the group sessions and ensuring they are effective and regular but when they lacked it was due to "staff shortage." In a nutshell the place wasn't terrible. I'm guessing they've improved a lot.

Good food except we didn't get real coffee there. Good nurses, great faculty, especially one colored therapist (can't remember her name but she was awesome ). Loved talking to my therapist, great therapy classes.

This is a place with plenty of staff that really care but the job takes a lot out of them. So patients, especially inpatients need to understand that this staff is working as hard as they can and in order for you to get what you need. You have to work with the staff. They may disrespect you but they need to sometimes. Just let them know how you feel but don't waste their time. They need more doctors and/or bosses though. Peace from a former 1013 that will hopefully never be 1013 ever again

At least they had all the medicine that I take available.

The staff was a hit or miss. Either they were amazing and sweet or horribly rude and disrespectful. I am a type 1 diabetic and they fucked up my blood sugars, didn't listen to what I had to say and gave me more anxiety than I walked in with. It is more of a stability facility rather than a place to go and get help mentally. I was stable when I went in yet they still kept me 6 days. Very much so a "pill mill". I wouldn't reccomend it unless you really need a place to get clean. Expect it to be dirty, not well kept and the food isn't the best. Not the worst...but definitely not where I personally needed to go. You'll get more therapy from other patients than the doctors/therapists.
