I think that they are going down hill. They hire anyone who walks off the streets that can pass a drug screen. I think the children's unit is in desperate need of help. It is like a day care center where you can't touch the kids. So employees just chase after them. I think the Willows unit is the only unit that can actually help children but it has its flaws as well. Too many children for one therapist, the age of the children should be separated they have 9-17 year olds together, and they should have some sort of contact with males before they leave the facility. The adult unit and adolescent unit is a joke to me. Nothing can be done in a week or two. That is my opinion.

I think the place is nothing but a joke. They don't give two cares about people and they charge way too much. If they were really helping then the same people would not be coming back.

Well, evidently its not that big of a secret! LOL! Lincoln Trail hires any body with a high school education that can pass a drug test, not that all employees are drug free, just as long as they can pass that day... The children's and adolescent units are jokes, they are not helping any one except parents who need a month long break from their out of control kids! I agree on the willows unit, but a year in prison would change a person's life as well, so... As far as the adult unit, basically the patients run the show, you cant let psychotic, ptsd and drug addicted patients tell the staff what to do... it's ridiculous!!! People continue to come back because they get a choice, that or jail... and they know LTBHS is gonna be cake! The staff cant control the patients any more and half of them dont care, they're just there for a paycheck, and the ones that do care, get run over and treated like hell! Lincoln Trail needs to be shut down before something really bad happens : a suicide bc the staff isnt paying attn like they should be; a homicide bc their policy on restraining out of control patients is to basically stand back and let them get it out of their system; or at the very minimum, staff and patients getting seriously injured more often bc management and co-workers dont care enuf to pull their weight!

Only shock I'd expect is their bottom line. Another hack medical related industry; do they get court related case referrals like some other behavioral-substance problem "treatment" providers in the area? Low overhead staff, well paid "professionals," and of course fat top management. Well fleeced victims.

They have 116 beds (or something like that) and they charge over $100/day/pt... so you figure about $11,600/day... not counting the patients that they put on air beds bc they dont have room for them, but they're too greedy to turn them away... plus, military pts are charged more than medicaid/medicare pts... techs are pd just over min wage and run ragged, nurses are under paid and over worked, therapists are paid very well considering the area tho, and I'm sure the Pyschiatrists, who are positively worthless, are overpaid (a huge understatement)... so, do with that info what you will.

all i have to say about lincoln trail is that that the case managers and some of the workers are bigoted and narrow-minded idiots who don't do there me, I was there and the sh*tty case managers started in on how I shamed my family, how I did this and that and they didn't even bother getting my side of the story. My, aren't they professional, professional my azz. i had all the hallmarks of someone who not only needed help but was being abused and they chose instead to blame me. I'm just saying these people as of 1998 are very unprofessional and should be avoided..btw, is eddie and james still there? they are the only workers i have respect for.
