I was highly disappointed in both inpatient hospitalization and the day hospitalization programs in terms of time with actual one-on-one therapy (you know, someone with an actual graduate degree and license, not a para or tech, and *in private*) and time with prescribers. I soon tried another local alternative, which is "residential" and run by the locally-designated communty mental health center, which was a worse farce, (I could hardly believe it) and not hospitalization at all, but a "hospital alternative," that is not run on the medical model, but supposedly on the psycho-social model, and which featured zero individual therapy from a professional (for me, at least) and zero prescribers on-site, but was mainly a temorary holding site.

Even with all that said, you could give it a try for a day or two, and if it's too foul you can stop.
