Hi. I think it depends on your purpose/what you are looking for in the hospitalization. With this hospital, if you are looking for help managing selfcare issues and need stabilization, then this looks like a good place.

From what I've read, I have reservations on their approach to treatment of dissociative disorders, but I have no first hand experience nor have I heard anybody else's experiences from there.

So I would ask yourself what you are looking for, and then ask the people at the hospital if they can provide that.

In the trauma dept, I've never been under the care of Colin Ross, but I do not like his books or approach because I do not think it is realistic to think one can heal without having to reexperience at least some of that which has caused the pain in the first place. However, that doesn't mean that docs/therapist working under his model aren't good. It's just my opinion.

Some hosps. focus on stabilization, which is what it seems this hospital describes as their purpose. Other hosps. help you process through things. So it depends.

So, all that is to say, it depends on what you are looking for. Was that at all helpful?? :-)

While I'm at it......

If what you are looking for is stabilization and skills to cope, then I think this looks like a good place. You have to learn them somewhere. Everything I've learned I've been taught/told by others. Some I have read about in a book, but most practical advice has come from real people. I think real people help you cope the best. And if you choose to use real people in a hospital, then good for you. They'll have what you need for coping as well. The idea is to cope and eventually to get to the place where you can cope fairly well on your own, after a time. But you've got to be taught how first.

That might not have been anything that you were asking. Blow it off if it has no relevance. :-)
