Likewise, his training included the treatment of co-occurring psychiatric disorders as well as motivational interviewing.

Struggles with mental health and addiction issues can be complex and complicated, so much so that typical acute inpatient and outpatient treatment options may not be able to get to the root of the issues. Whether the individual is stabilized after their first behavioral crisis or has struggled with long-standing mental illness, finding clarity in diagnosis is essential for planning next steps and ultimately achieving wellness. In addition, a solid foundation in clinical skill development is also crucial to being able to build a realistic future focus and better life.
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
Excellent outpatient care and service. Yes, you have to work for your recovery but it is well worth it! Staff is fantastic. There are plenty of meal options (yes, even healthy ones) in the cafeteria a...
Excellent program. Treatment is world class. Many of the negative comments seem to make no sense, almost like they were never treated at this facility. I got the help I needed for my co-occurring diso...
Was referred to Lindner Center of Hope by family and educational consultant. Expensive but you can try to apply for financial assistance. I have stopped engaging in unhealthy behaviors, had a chance t...
This place ruined my life. Sent here by controlling parents, I was very unprepared for what was about to unfold. For $2,000 a day you'd expect premium care, but I encountered the worst of the worst. T...
Lindner Center of HOPE provides assessments and evaluations for individuals with complex mental health issues. This is Lindner's purpose and they continue on this HOPE filled path.
My daughter was suffering from debilitating anxiety. We took her to Linder for outpatient help. The Nurser Practioner we saw there was one cold fish. We might as well have been seeing a robot. The exp...
They will not help me
Management sucks, incompetence is probably the word that best describes this organization! My experience is with the inexperienced people that are promoted into roles that are not clinically educated....
I went to Lindner Center many times and only once as I put on full ed protocol no matter how much I was struggling with food they didn’t seem to care because my weight was “normal”. Other times ...
All I can say is because of the Sibcy house "life is good". The sibcy house was a place where I felt safe and understood. Before attending the program, I had struggled with addiction and severe depre...
About six years ago, I had three rounds in the adolescent ward of Lindner. I was there for severe anorexia and depression. When I got there I was forced to give up all of my belongings so that they co...
The Lindner Center of Hope has helped me many years and I think all the staff know what they are known for. That’s why I know it’s the best place to go for mental health.
Very ineffective treatment. Now at a different facility and seeing much much better results. Don’t waste your time or money. Patient got worse while staying with these clowns. All of the testing rev...
I had the misfortune of becoming a Sibcy House patient a few years ago. Let me tell you, the staff is completely inexperienced, lazy, and mostly on a power trip over individuals in their program. I wa...
My daughter was manic and she admitted herself into this facility. Pretty place with unprofessional help. They only care about the insurance money and have no program during stay to help you emotional...
Excellent program. The only place to go for mental health and addiction issues
My family member was an inpatient for 6 days. He NEVER saw a Psychiatrist. A nurse practioner was the best they had to offer. The "Therapeutic Recreation" consisted of name that tune and trivia games....
Excellant Care. Top notch staff. Programs are the best there is .
Recently I attended the acute Eating Disorder inpatient program. I was not allowed to have snacks. While everyone was really nice, I was told I needed to eat everything. I was given a form after every...
Sadly, very expensive and maybe the most unsupportive and lazy staff imaginable. Staff working sibcy house were angry, overworked, under trained/educated and had no problem displaying this to patients...
They dont care about the patient only care about money. If you dont have it they will not help you. This place is ajoke
Worse place ever. They treated me like a lab rat. Do not go to this place.
They don\'t take you seriously. They minimize your issues.
My loved one has been to several rehabs. This is the only one that is individual focused, not group focused. Also a true dual diagnosis facility with mental health being primary and how it drives addi...
My insurance covered each time I was admitted, so cost was not a problem. All the rooms are private, which was great. It was a lot cleaner than some other facilities I have experienced. No life changi...
They were very helpful and very kind. They did not have many vegan options for meals.I thought the staff was great at the Lindner Center. They were very friendly and very helpful
TERRIBLE FACILITY it is laughable. I have had several family members admit for short stays. They are not staffed well. They basically do nothing but ensure you receive a bill. PT\'s there for eati...
Strengths: Experienced, caring staff. Many amenities. Some programs are out of reach for all but the wealthiest patients.
Doctors and councelors were great. However, it was expensive. It was a great help.
They're caring people, it's clean & the food is good. They genuinely want their patients to heal. The only one I felt was that it seemed small and had a restricted yard area. I think they were great a...
Close, clean, innovative. However, it was expensive. My friend relapsed almost immediately. I believe this is good for some but not all.
It was clean. Staff experience was a weakness. Need better training for counselors.
What was good. Dedicated staff. Well- intentioned. Beautiful facility. What was not good? I really wanted to quit the first day. Realize now that I should have. I held hope that this program would...
The Lindner Center will not refill prescriptions on the weekend. You are on your own. I would not recommend the Lindner Center for anyone with serious problems particularly if the Lindner Center has ...
I would never recommend the Lindner Center of Hope. Not only did (it) not work, but I was even given false hope. This was the cruelest thing you can do to a person who has done everything the doctor...
A close friend was treated and seems to be emotionally better after treatment.
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
