I was a patient at this hospital twice in 2013. I was trying to safely take myself off antidepressants that were making me suicidal. I had checked myself in this hospital to receive some help. I was put in the stabilization unit by mistake. I was treated as if I were criminally insane. The staff acted as if they were police officers. The patients would get into fights with each other. I watched the staff laugh at them. If I asked for anything like a toothbrush the staff was annoyed with me. If anyone asks to go outside to smoke, nobody can go outside. I saw staff members allowed to smoke. I was threatened by the staff like if I don't like it there I can go to the state facility. Then, to top it all off the billing department is not capable of sending out the proper billing. My husband & I spent a lot of money out of pocket. My account was turned over to collections months before the amount was due. Not only did I get to see patients get treated as criminals. I also had to pay a small fortune to this company so my credit is not ruined. I would never go to this hospital again. I definitely will not recommend them to anyone having problems in their life.

Sincerely,

Brooke

    Peachford has been doing that for a long time; If you go in for a medication adjustment; they stick you in their worst ward and keep you there for 3 days then move you to another ward for 10 days then decide to release you
