I had a meltdown one morning in January 2016. I called 911, and being rather new to the area, I just told them to take me somewhere where I could get help. They took me to Holly Hills. Yes, it did,seem the assessment and admission process was long, especially in my breakdown,drunken condition. I did think I would be out in 3 days, since I came voluntarily, but after the 3 days I was told that would not be the case. I really wasn\'t ready to go home, but I was concerned that my sister was coming from Ohio, and there has been no one to look after my cats until she came. The folks at the desk werehelpful in letting me make numerous phone calls. I have been treated for depression for 38 years, I was started on anti-depressants 21 years ago.... When I had my first intense session with Dr. , he explained that after so many years, the meds can be ineffective. He diagnosed me with more of a type of bipolar disorder, and started me on a new type of med. For the whole experience, The Dr., was one of the best therapists I have ever had. He listened attentively, made me dig deep into my life, and the \'homework\' he gave me helped me greatly in learning more about myself. I only wish I could see him on a regular basis. I thought the food was very good, with a nice variety. The therapists that ran our classes were excellent in getting everyone involved. Fun time was great. We had some great AA meetings in the evenings. Yes, there were a number of \'dead\' times, where some did color, watch TV, or whatever to pass the time. BUT it was also a time for us to get to know each other, and talk to each other outside of a structured class or meeting. This allowed us to make friends. I guess I was fortunate enough to have been with a great group of patients! My complaints are mainly about some of the staff. You could be standing at the desk, and some would be talking to each other and totally ignore you. And there was a lot of LOUD talking, laughing, and door slamming all night. Most of the staff were great, but a few bad eggs. All in all, going there at that critical time, was the best thing I did.
