How in the world can those people say that they actually help people? The doctor curses you, staff is rude and several skanks in nursing, and no, I'm not saying this b/c of drugs. I was there actually needing help for depression: after talking to my counselor, Katy, I felt like I needed even more help. That place is a joke and I will not ever return. I really don't see the Pavilion staying open, someone needs to shut that place down.

Apparently you need to learn to read. I said plainly that it had nothing to do with drugs; I told them from the beginning that I don't want anything addictive or that gives you a "high" feeling. I haven't ever used drugs and don't plan on ever trying them. So, therefore, before you make such an invalid comment, read the full statement.

Why would you take your mother there for dementia? You can't fix that. The drs don't have a cure so I don't know what you were expecting. It's a progressive disease that only worsens with time, you're in denial if you think othwerwise. Dementia is NOT a psychiatric problem, addiction isn't either. It is in no way a rehab/detox center, people think that it is but its not. People go in, expecting to get dried out and then bitch when they don't. People are complaining about the staff being rude but I'm sure its a rough job. Dealing with wandering old people and pillheads yelling in your face all day would probably put anybody in a bad mood. 90% of the patients there lie to get in then go and bitch about their treatment.

Addiction is an evil disease, but it is a medical condition and must be treated that way. I have traveled the road to recovery with my husband who was hooked on pills and alcohol. I could have left him, but chose to give him a chance with the understanding we are in it together. He sees a doctor who is board certified in addiction medicine. We have been treated with respect by a team that takes his recovery seriously. Medication, 12-step program, group meetings, counseling, licensed clinical social workers and working with the family members- these are the ingredients for recovery. It is like a broken foot, the medicine in the beginning is like the cast, it eases the pain and starts the healing but comes off eventually. The group and counseling sessions are like physical therapy, it gets you back on your feet and helps you function with a little less pain every day. Anyone who has had a broken foot or is a recovered addict knows this: eventually you get back to a normal life and just when you think you are healed, you take one wrong step and the twinge or pain is back, you are never completely healed. You just learn to be grateful for each good day and take each step carefully to avoid what triggers the pain. Good Luck to those who seek recovery.

There are choices in life. When you make the wrong one it's your bad. Not mine. Not my neighbor. So don't gripe.

I heard at my pychiatrist office that Cheryl Taylor from Pathways is coming to work there on a full time basis as a counselor on October 1. She is very nice and I know she will NEVER curse you out. She is helped me and my children out at Pathways and at school. Just thought I would let you know.

Which Pathway is she from? My husband is a patient at Pathway Medical group in Bristol, TN. It is an addiction medicine office, they have been great to him. I don't recall a lady named Cheryl working there, is there another Pathway closer?

I've seen flyers in Wytheville for Pathway's pregnant addict program in Bristol, are they the same group of doctors as the one in Bluefield? Good friend just found out she is pregnant and Bluefield would be closer, she wants to get clean ASAP.

Can you please elaborate? My sister is being sent there now for confusion and dementia. Reading this site I'm sooo not comfortable with her going there. I live out of state and now I'm worried. If you could elaborate then I could share with her husband so he knows what to look out for ...thank you.

if you are looking at this site for actual information you can trust, you need the psychiatric help everyone else is talking about. This is a site to post ideas and feelings, not facts.n Most all of the posters here are psych patients themselves who are posting the things the voices in their heads tell them to.

The pavillion is a joke. Lol. Ive heard people say they go there for six days and call it a vacation. These pillheads cant be cured in a week. They just come out of there with another sript.
you dont know crap

Its not a place for pillheads or addicts to go for a cure. Its place for people with serious mental issues and problems to get help. Its not a place to dry out or clean up but everybody tries to use it as such.
