I was there in Sept./Oct. of 2018. Horrible experience. You see the website and you and your loved ones think you are going to receive top notch care. Not so. The “detox cabin” is disgusting. I...

My husband was here for 3 weeks of mental health. Awful place!! Poorly run. Sent us 2 other patients medical records after we requested his. Communication was awful.

I came here for mental health. Anxiety to be more specific. I left I’m worse shape than I started out after literally needing to escape this prison. This is a drug and alcohol rehab (although if I h...

I just left The Ranch PA. No they do not have horses . But if you let that stop you from going you are making a mistake. The cabins we lived in were clean and at max 10 ppl in a cabin it was never ful...

The setting is beautiful. However, communication amongst the staff is horribly lacking. I went on mental health because from the website I believed there were horses and a therapy dog. So, neither exi...

We arrived at the Ranch and was greeted in the parking lot. We were desperate to find a mental health facility for my brother who was extremely anxious and depressed and in need of help. We could imme...

This place is all about the money. They do not care if they discharge you into a bad situation. Period. I was discharged within 8 hours notice. They told me my insurance ran out at 9am and I had to be...

My son was treated at the Ranch. Horrible experience. They claimed to be expert in dual diagnosis treatment. Not true. They only focus on addiction and do that in a very "scared straight" kind of way ...

Great program, saved my life. I attended The Ranch PA 2 months ago and haven't ever felt more alive. Through hard work and dedication to the program, I can honestly say I finally feel liberated. I rea...

A 62 year old was assaulted and "group" feedback was there was not supposed to be socializing between men and women. I'd have waited up to 45 minutes for meds while I listened to nurses socializing...

Most unprofessional place I've ever encountered. First of all, all lies over the phone before I went. When I got there nobody explained to my husband what to expect. They basically told him and my dau...

Family friend attended here for 3 weeks and shared how unhelpful the experience there was. He shared it was only beneficial for the few days of detox, but after that it was extremely boring and a de...

Terribly run....Programs advertised are not available. Insurances don\'t pay for full treatment do clients are forced to leave before treatment complete or pay out of pocket. If client wants to leave ...

save your money. 90% relapse rate. Usually your insurance doesn\'t cover all costs. Just a scam to get money!

JE

SAVE YOUR LOVED ONES FROM THIS PLACE: First off, the only ones who \"act\" nice are the people working on getting that money. From the start they lie BIG time on their cost vs what insurance pays a...

Like with all treatment options BWL only works, if the patient is willing to do the work. BWL, I hear, isn\'t like other rehabs. I have only been to one official rehab and BWL was it. Even though I\'v...

This place went downhill fast. BL says they have all these great therapies, but when you get there and give them your non-refundable payment, you find out they have almost none of them. Everybody wan...

While I did detox from addiction while there, my mental health badly deteriorated and I now need much more intensive mental health treatment.

This is great program and I highly recommend that anyone seeking help to go to Brightwater for treatment. The staff truly care about you and try and meet your needs as much as they can.

I would highly not recommend you send your love one to Brightwater Landing. I cannot express enough my disappointment in this facility and the fact that we were misled on what they could offer. The...

BWL is not what it\'s made out to be. They are not an extended facility if your loved one needs that their extension there is just a repeat of their first 2 or 4 weeks, no advanced care. My loved o...

My daughter spent 60 days here. Her first 30 were so helpful that she chose to extend another 30 to work on all of the issues addiction brought to her life. The counselors were very good and the str...

While I think Brightwater landing is a good facility for addiction, please do not let them tell you that they are a facility for the treatment of anxiety and depression. Their main focus is addiction...

WOW! This is an amazing life saving facility, and by far the new GOLD STANDARD! I recently had a 31 day stay here and all I can say is unbelievable. This ALL STAR TEAM of therapist and clincial staff ...

Brittney

I hate working here. It is so gross and being a housekeeper its even worse. Clients can be filthy and there are not mattress pads.

Jane

This is not what it looks like. The practice is backwards and the place is filthy and not up to code. Clients run rampid with little supervision.
