I was detoxing from benzodiazepines and opioids and River Oaks is one of the ONLY places to provide medical treatment to help you get through detoxing as pain free as possible!!! Some of the staff could have been more professional. If you're looking for a rehab facility that will actually give you Meds to ease your transition back to normal- This is the place to go.

treat all ages but not singularly focused. This was a friend that went into the facility. It was a few years back. What I do know is that she hasn't backslid, and she's quite successful now, so they must have done what they were supposed to!

They had excellent counselors and an awesome minister, both are easy to talk to and express concerns with. This facility also has a great art and music program that is incorporated in treatment. Could allow certain privelages such as internet and cell phone use. This facility could also provide some personal hygiene prouducts to those who could not afford it. This facility does offer after care treatment. I over all had a good experience here for the most part. Some of the doctors are better than others but that's anywhere you go.

I was in treatment in the Trauma unit for 4 weeks. The treatment team was outstanding. The caliber of staff was amazing and genuinely cared for each patient. I felt safe, secure, and knew I was in good hands. My therapist, Dr., and others were so instrumental in my recovery and healing. Thank you very much

It fairly a-ok but I had no idea I had signed my rights over them which I was not informed by them about this. If you admit yourself in, you should be able admit yourself out when you feel you are ready, but this is not the case and it does not work that way. The doctor has to release you when he feels you are capable and ready to be outside the world. In my case I learned after the fact I can sign a 72 hour release with out the doctor consent which would have made me waited longer. That is the only thing I have against is that being able to leave when YOU feel you are ready.

RO Unit 3 saved my life! I have been in close to 15 hospitalizations in 25 years, with little success, and believe me, I've tried hard to get well. No one can get well in 8 days (the usual psychiatric stay). I had been in therapy, and my therapist sent me to RO. I was placed on unit 3 because I am an alcoholic, addict, ED patient, DID patient, and a Compulsive Behavior patient. For the first time in my life, I flew to RO. I literally would be 6 feet under with a grieving partner and family. If you are not ready to work hard, don't go. If you are, then get ready to have the support you never even imagined exists! The staff, nurses, therapists, and doctors are second to none. I was there for almost two months, and I would do it again if I had to. I sat at a desk next to a window where I could see raccoons and their babies, rabbits, lizards, and Lindsey, the resident cat. In other words, I didn't feel like I was in a box. We were given time to go outside and even walk. I had some complex physical problems which were NEVER ignored. The fact that other patients had similar issues made my issues easier to accept and deal with. Please consider RO if you're dealing with trauma related issues as I was. I only recommend unit 3 because when my insurance put me on unit 6 for yes, 8 days, by mistake, that was a hell-hole!

This facility has been around for a long time. They encouraged all of us and never gave up. I recommend it to anyone in need of help. The staff was good, it was a clean facility and everything was reasonable.

They are very effective at treating the patient like an adult not with contempt and making the patient understand they are fully invested in their recovery. I was very impressed and pleased with how effective the staff was getting the patient to chase recovery as hard as he chased addiction.

Certain staff members treated me like family. They talked with me one on one when I was struggling, even if they were not my counselor. Even when I wanted to give up I was given repeated methods to stay strong and distract me from myself. There was one doctor in particular who I felt was a jerk; I did not like that he had to be the psychiatrist. Also did not like that I could not switch counselors. I didn't like my counselor as much as I liked counselors that were not mine and I feel like I should have gotten a say in who got to treat me one on one and to where I felt that I got the most help. I was deep deep in an eating disorder and this place saved me. Without it I would not be alive today. They made me realize I did have a problem and the only way to be truly happy was to help myself.

Not recommended- River Oaks' staff includes counselors fresh out of school with NO experience who don't have any idea what they should be doing in treating psych/ bi-polar/ addictions.

My young adult son was admitted to the Compulsive Behavior Unit. Insurance paid for him to stay a little over a month and I just know that he was quite distraught when he couldn't stay longer. My son reported to me often during his stay and gave a full report afterward. He has found quite a bit of healing at River Oaks and I am grateful for that. He enjoyed the groups and the creative classes. He said that the staff was good to him. He was comfortable there and didn't have any complaints. He picked up a lot of insight and tools that help him everyday. When he was discharged he was given a thick notebook of the methods and treatments, etc.... He did not rave about the food, but he has a pallet for his mom's great Italian cooking, so he didn't care as much for some of the Cajun style food that was served there. If insurance would allow I'd send him back there. I think he could have used a couple more weeks of therapy/treatment at least!

This center I was in for a full month last year in 2013 around July and it was a godsend! I was suffering from everything possible. The treatment staff was increadable understandable they were available and sincerely sweet. The classes were although hard to make yourself go to they were a must to get better! I enjoyed the music therapy and the art therapy. They keep your days filled with classes and intervention so you aren\'t just sitting around feeling sorry for yourself not knowing what to do. You have a 4\" thick homework book filled with tons of information and practice stuff you can even take with you when you leave and reference to when times get rough. I wanted to cry the day I left. I truly grew to love these people as I felt they took a journey with me toward a healthier life. I thank each and every one of them for I feel as though going there was a blessing that not many have or will get to experience. My life has truly been changed for the better forever! Thank you for all that you do! I wish other treatment phacilities could be more like you guys.
