Carolina Care Behavioral Health rescued me from a fragile and scary state of mind. I was a patient here in January 2016 and I rushed the process. Consequently, I ended back at CCBH 2 months later. This time, I didn't rush the process. I took the time to allow the treatment team to re-adjust my medications to a dosage that stablized my mood. I spent over a month here. I came to this facility with an attitude that I want to get better and I am willing to "put in the work" to get better. I forced myself to come to daily group sessions (which helped tremendously). I added exercise to my daily routine. I took my meds daily and notified the staff if there were any changes. I participated in group sessions and I applied what I was learning in the educational sessions. The result? I recovered, and I remain in recovery. A previous therapist gave me this advice. She said, "Work on your recovery because you're either working on recovery or you're working on a relapse." That stuck with me and it's true: You're either working on recovery or you're working on a relapse. Recovery for me means I take my meds (as prescribed daily), I get proper sleep, I see my psychiatrist and therapist monthly, I keep my meds stocked and use the coping skills. I'm grateful to the staff in PHP and IOP. Thank you.
First of all I am breaking this down in three parts. I was hospitalized for a total of two weeks in unit 2 and was treated with respect and dignity. You just have to follow the rules. They are there for a reason. Nursing staff receives a 99% rating. The therapists and the doctors receive a 100% rating. Then I went to PHP for 4 weeks. The doctor receives a 100% rating, was fair but stern. I did not like it but needed it. Also the staff receives a 100% rating, were fair and stern. I did not like it but needed it. I learned a lot of coping skills and how to deal with problems from in patient and PHP. They were great ! Then I went to IOP for 4 weeks. I want to give a special shout to DAWN. She was the bomb ! She really turned it around for me. She dug out some really deep stuff from my childhood. If I ever have to go back, I would not hesitate. As a side note I also want to say that the doctor and the PA @ IOP were also outstanding. Follow the rules. Work the program. Get everything out of it that you can.
Unit 2 was Very proffessional and very knowledgeable yet so empathetic and kind. . Coming from a RN w my PHD in trauma shock surgery and flight nursing for 34 years
Helped my husband. Love this place
I was impatient on Unit 2, for 5 days. As soon as I walked into my unit, I was greeted by other patients so warmly. They showed me the "ropes" and I felt I was with family. Group therapy was nice, but the interaction and talk time alone with other patients made the stay 10 times better, because we all shared a lot of the same experiences and really helped one another out a lot. This was my first experience in a mental health facility, and not once did I feel I wasnt cared for. The food was good and all you could eat. I think I gained weight during my stay. Snacks, juices of all kinds and coffee were available 24 hours a day. After day 1, my routine was good. I allowed myself time for me and forgot about Facebook, problems at home or work, and besides missing my family, I felt safe and just allowed myself to grow and heal. Today, as I write this review, I realize I left too early and am going to voluntarily sign myself back in to continue my recovery. I left feeling I could do it on my own, but now realize I need to be there longer. I give 5 stars for this facility and am so grateful for the help and resources they provided me.
I love the staff here. They are a good team that help patients heal, and then set them up for success after they leave.
Great people staff and patients !! I would recommed it to anyone !!!
Probably the best mental hospital I've been to. Unit 3 is the best of all the units and the staff there are great and friendly. Only had a few problems with the staff members on unit 5, but thankfully I wasn't there long. The food is decent , but don't expect anything fancy. Groups are usually somewhat interesting, especially recreational therapy and free day! Doctors are okay too, but I have my preferences. They have therapy dogs that come in on Mondays too! TV is provided, but channels are limited. No internet tho and no cell phones. Beds are...okay. Bring winter clothes because it's cold in there! There are smoke breaks though and you can go outside even if you don't smoke. You can have all the coffee you want. All in all, I give it 4/5 stars!
My days as an inpatient at the Carolina Center were numbered at 9- from November 28, 2016 to December 6, 2016. At first, I was hesitant, despite being the one to step forward and say I needed to be admitted. I knew there would be group therapy, and I thought: 'Really? Are we going to sit in some circle, holding hands and singing Kumbaya?' Group therapy was not faux, not sugar coated. It was deep, like, abyss deep. We talked about anything and everything, from music, to books, to religion, to Harry Potter, to superstition, to medication... I still keep in contact with about three patients I befriended. There, I was able to grasp that I am certainly not alone in my battle. I wasn't the only one with manic highs, depressive lows, crying spells and panic attacks. Instead of my insecurities being manipulated, they were accepted and loved. I felt okay for the first time in months. The nurses there were exactly the same; open to talk any place, any time. They didn't let us wallow; they let us explore our illnesses and learn how to overcome them. The adolescent program pushed me into reality, which some people hate, but it was what I needed to heal. If you are looking for a place to admit a child or yourself, I would definitely recommend both the inpatient and outpatient adolescent program.
My first experience ever in a mental hospital and it was amazing and the nurses treat you very well. The doctors monitor you when they put you on a new medicine and see how you react to it. The people are nice, but depends on when you go and who you with. In general its a great experience
Great, caring resource for drug rehab and mental illness. Great food, group counseling, recreational therapy, etc. So much to offer. If you love someone with these needs encourage them to go here!
I self-admitted in an attempt to hit a "reset button" on my life, which has been 40-plus years of fighting treatment-resistant depression, paranoia, and anxiety attacks. This "break" at the Center provided me hope that I could find relief for my issues and a treatment plan. At first, it felt like I was in jail. You are stringently monitored on just about everything. Don't expect some cozy, resort-style situation. You also will be busy all day with groups. Those are very good because you are in a place where other people understand what you are experiencing, whereas many in everyday life do not. I didn't leave with a cure, but I left with information and tools that helped me work with my doctors on the outside to find a solution. That solution, after years of trying all types of medicines, ended up being Symbyax (a combination of Prozac and Zyprexa). I am happier now than I've ever been in my life. I doubt that, without this reset (being at the Center) that I would have garnered the hope and passion to seek the right treatment. Again, don't expect it to be a hotel experience. You will have a roommate. The beds aren't great. The food is OK. You have a single shower with a curtain. You have to keep your toiletries in a box at the nurses' station. You can only make calls at certain times (no cell phones), there are no TVs in your room -- and the community TV is on just a couple of hours a day. You have to accept that all this is about helping you focus on you, and to avoid giving you opportunities to skip group therapy. You need the groups, and you need to be engaged in them. The staff is caring but strict, and that's OK. The doctors see you daily, which is a major plus. You are monitored nearly 24/7 and fill out morning assessments, which your doctor sees. You fill out group assessments, and the group leader later fills out a portion dealing with your engagement in the group. The doctor also sees this. I didn't fully appreciate the experience until I left the Center and began to use the tools I got while at the Center. The only issue I personally had was that, because there was not enough immediate room in Unit 2 (depression/anxiety), I had to spend a night in Unit 1 (substance abuse), which didn't apply to me; however, the staff worked hard to get me into Unit 2. This life reset serves as a new starting point for a new life of health and happiness.
It is a nice place. Had a seizure on the first day there, which I think was a combo of alcohol in system + taking a benzo. Oh well. The MT was with me at the hospital, but I guess was just part of his job... guess they thought I would run away. Food is good, but just stay away from the chicken nuggets (OR rock nuggets). Not much to see on T.V. as not many channels available. Group sessions are okay, but think they should offer a few minutes (10-15) per patient, as I am sure a-lot we want to say won't come out in group. Either way... nice place, but it has it's downfalls. Thing that got me was I searched this place out because of my psychological issues. But the dependence issues is what only seemed important. I was offered the rehab program, but saw no point as if I was going to sit around, eat, take meds, and go to groups (no type of exercise / even real walking). This does not cover the psychological issues I deal with... so relapse is a guarantee.
This is hands down, the best treatment center I have ever been involved with. Each and everyone of them are the kindest folks you will ever meet. True Angels that cared for me 24/7! They gave me my life back after years of alcohol abuse. I beg whoever reads this that needs help, reach out to them. I have nothing but love and admiration for all of the staff. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You and you all will always have a special place in my heart forever!!!
