In April My 17 year old son spent 21 days in Intermountain Hospital. The 5 stars I just gave for this review come from the bottom of my grateful heart. My son needed immediate help for drug abuse and mental instability. From the moment we arrived we we're treated with dignity and respect. The staff were calm and professional. It is never easy to leave your child in the care of strangers , especially when they are begging you not to. I had to make the decision to trust them and walk away. The first few days weren't easy but at least I knew he was safe and alive. I recieved several phone calls the first day letting me know how he was doing . The phone calls continued his entire stay . I felt like I was a part of every decision they were making in regards to my son . I was at every visit . The first visit was rough . Teenagers , on their best days are not easy. When you have one that is on drugs, coming off drugs, delutional, angry, suicidal ( whatever your personal crisis may be) It's a whole new ball game. Of course there are occasional outbursts in the visiting room. They know this is their chance to manipulate beg , threaten . That is what teenagers do. They say whatever they need to say to get their way. Every day got progressively better. He settled into a stuctured routine . I questioned him every day on how his day went . Just a little thing like hearing that he played football or had seconds on BBQ ribs brought my heart peace . It's funny how these ordinary everyday things can make you feel good . He also told me about the skin checks. If you are the mother/ father of a child who is suicidal or self harms by cutting I'm sure you are grateful for this. Two weeks in at a visit , my son told me " mom , I don't really mind being here. Its kind-of a relief to be away from everything". I don't know exactly what "everything" is but I felt relieved too . Right now , it is 6:00 am and my son is asleep in his bed. That is also a relief. Thank You to : The intake staff, the boys adolescent staff, the case managers, the front desk staff and the Drs. At Intermountain Hospital. I hope I will never need your services again but if I did I would not hesitate.

It's not that bad here. I started to like them towards the ending. Yes majority of them made fun of me. But it's all good. God's blessing me in front of their faces. Never give up on yourself.

I personally thought this facility was awesome, as long as you are willing everything is possible, I had a great experience the staff was mostly friendly and those who may not have been were simply doing their job. I felt safe and comfortable. It is run to keep you busy and on a schedule for reasons.

I was hospitalized in the journeys program in September of 2016. I'm reading the other reviews and a lot of people were saying it is bad and Its not. One of the things I liked about it was it was kind of an escape of reality for a bit, but leaving kinda sucked because you had to go back to reality. I honestly didn't want to be hospitalized at first because it just seemed unnecessary to me, but in the long run it really did help. The staff there are really helpful and caring in my experience. if you treat them with respect, they will respect you with respect as well. since I went during the school year, we had two hours of school each day. We also did exercise groups, as well as theraputic groups. One of my only problems was that i was not fully helped, but that is my fault. My mom told me to lie to get out of there because "she didn't like the way they treated her." I guess it's all about her? On the more positive side, I did come away with more coping skills and I am better off then in would have been with our the treatment.

Situated in Boise, Idaho, Intermountain 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 Intermountain Hospital in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.
Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at Intermountain 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 Intermountain 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 Intermountain 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 Intermountain 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 Intermountain Hospital today at www.Intermountainhospital.Com 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.
