Large enough to quickly admit new patients Poor assistance with transferring to further care Good place to start rehab, but lacks in assisting with making sure people are able to get into or actually get to further long term care. This has resulted in many repeat admittances.

They had no idea how to safely help someone dependent on Benzodiazapines. Avoid this place like the plaque.

Therapy, Staff, additional groups like yoga, and the area were strengths of the facility. They care about the patients. You can trust the staff and feel safe there. Do it for yourself. You are worth it!

They could have had a better 12-step program and more family involvement; however, it was otherwise a great facility.

Brattleboro retreat is completely ineffective ... and the staff is overworked and uncaring. We sent our son there with high hopes after much research into possible treatment. We even visited the facility beforehand. What we did not see is that Brattleboro retreat is run very poorly. After a ten day very expensive stay ... they were not able to complete testing and our son left with no diagnosis. He was also worse off after the stay than before. ... They caused our family unnecessary stress and years of uncertainty, which had dire consequences. My advice, avoid Brattleboro Retreat at all costs. It is not just a waste of time and money and emotional hazard, it makes a difficult precarious situation much worse.

I have heard that the Retreat has gotten a lot better. It was a bit overcrowded when I was there. Changed medication without consulting my Psychiatrist.
