Yes, the cafeteria is VERY hot. The showers can be testy and yes some of the nurses can be rude. Food...its not a 4 star hotel, but hospital food. What you go in for is not a resot; However, the doctors and therapists are FANTASTIC. People go there from all over the state BECAUSE of the doctors. Art therapist Julie was the best person to talk with aside from Dr. David Lizkoff and therapist Vic. Please dont let the negative reviews fool you.

you can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink it. if you go for help, but only do the bare minimum and just go through the motions your chances for success are not very good. if nothing changes nothing changes. you need willingness and 100% honesty to get the most out of your stay. i wish anybody the best of luck who uses their services. It is 100% possible to change to possitive thinking, and to a better quality of life. They give you the tools to do that. It is up to you to use them as well.
