It was okay. It really wasn't that bad. A lot of what everyone says has some truth to it. There are some workers who are a little rough, maybe inconsiderate. One screamed at me to the point I cried and trembled. Then of course there are ones who truly do want to help. I could feel their support and it motivated me to get better. It does feel like a prison, because essentially it kinda is. You aren't given much privacy. Only to go tp the bathroom, change, and shower. If you do something foolish when doing this, like hurting yourself. They will not hesitate to take that privacy away, but it's for your own good. Just like constantly being put off-mission. All they are trying to do is give these kids a wake up call. Show them that this is serious. Unfortunately there will always be some that will never get it. The food was fine. They gave us a decent amount, and thats coming from a skinny teenage guy who eats more food than a professional eater and his tourny. The taste was good, but imma be honest, when I was allowed to go with my family out to eat we went to taco bell, and that night was the only night I wasn't gassy. So something in Marillacs food must not have agreed with me. For me, it was a start. I stayed there my required 60 days. When I got out, there were people I missed, both helpers and kids, but I was relieved to have my freedom back. It did wake me up, made me realize life was serious. I was diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers, and an impulse disorder. Afterwards i went to outpatient therapy for three years. Now I'm at a point where I can work through these problems without meds. Marillac can be very very helpful, but your kid has to be willing to change at some point during treatment, or else they can fake go through the motions and return home the same person. I'm moved out with my fiance and if it weren't for Marillac I would never of made it to this point. So to the staff, a big thank you.
It really helped me pull through, Good service too
The majority of people who have been saying it sucks are the people who made that place suck. Not only is it a good place, the staff helps and there IS privacy. Coming from someone who went there, it is probably the best mental hospital I have been to. Don’t listen to the people who have been putting bad reviews, because those are the people who were forced to go and think that everyone trying to help is a nuisance. Also, there are windows and no we didn’t sleep in prison cells. I slept on a bed, with a window in my room, and the lights off. The food was good, staff actually cared about us, we had pencils and coloring pages with crayons and markers, we even had card games. We couldn’t touch each other because people got triggered by being touched and also some people were violent. It was a friendly environment, and there was definitely privacy. I felt safe there. They treat you like you are suicidal because most people who go there are suicidal or severely depressed. The only problem I had was the people who were there, because they kept making it hard for everyone else to recover. I felt safe there, and honestly when I left, I kind of just wanted to stay. But I knew I couldn’t. I would greatly recommend going here if you need to get help, because it will change your life for the better. The reviews were people were complaining about this place were angry parents or kids biting the hand that feeds them.
We had a really great experience with our son. The doctors, therapist and nurses kept us informed everyday of our sons stay. We were called when medication was needed due to behavioral issues with our son and we where called when they no longer had to give our son meds. From the ladies at front desk to staff everyone was very helpful and understanding. Everyone was very patient and kind to my son and family. Doctors and staff stayed on the phone with us until we understood what was needed. They helped guided and informed us of everything that was happening with our son. It’s never an easy situation when you have to make the decision to get your kids help and everyone at The hospital made our decision to get our kid help a pleasant experience. Thank you to all doctors, staff, nurses.
I absolutly hated this place for the first few days. But I got to know the people there and the staff which made me talkative. The staff were great, I apologize to the other kids who had a bad experience here and I wish you all well. The food was actually better than my schools. Like some of the other people, I am sad I couldn't get to know some of the other kids. They were really good kids at heart and it was sad to see the real good hearted in that situation. I was there for self harm and suicidal thoughts and actions, but they helped me through it. They are good people there. Although they dont have much to do it helps a lot. You also get a motivational boost when you leave. They gave me the clothes I came there with and they had cleaned them too. After I put them on to leave I walked out and all of the girls said I looked good. That helps coming from a thought process when you think you are unliked, ugly, and fat. This place made me realize my will to live. I have a hint for the ones like me that read this, I know you dont care about this and will take it the wrong way but: Find someone to love, not like the thirteen year olds with eight teen year old boyfriends, I mean some one you can truley love. Some one who you can live for. Infatuation is like being tempted by the devil, ignore it like the voices in my head. Thank you to the staff and friends I made.
Takes stress off me when it comes to this place. My child is safe when they are here.
My son has gone to Marillac a few times. They have been amazing! Supportive while my son was there! Just wished they had a follow up after release
Honestly, I hated it at first because I didn't want to be there. After a few days I met these amazing people and I really wish we could stay in contact. I met a girl and she was almost like my sister, me and her talked about life at night and she made me feel completely better about myself. And I also met this guy but he was hilarious but he believed that all the girls that were in the room were beautiful. When he said that I did feel beautiful. I'm not saying this just for fun but to tell people that the counselors help out a lot but the kids that participate and share with each other make the experience a whole better because we found out about each other and that we have similarities to some of these people. Even if we cant share contact info if you go there I promise you guys that if you make the best of it you will never forget who was there and what they said to you. I recommend that you come here.
