THIS PLACE MAKES YOU FEEL WORSE THAN YOU DID WHEN YOU GET THERE. IT IS NOT A PLACE TO HEAL BUT A PLACE TO GO AND DIE. I was an adult patient in 2013 due to a first Suicide attempt. I was depressed and pretty messed up. I FELT WORTHLESS. THIS PLACE MADE ME FEEL EVEN MORE WORTHLESS. Let us begin with my adventure to this place. - I arrived on a stretcher and was immediately stripped of anything I had that could possibly be of harm to myself or others - which is pretty much anything, ever. They ruined a lot of my clothes and shoes by taking out the strings, CLOTHES WHICH NOW I HAVE TO REPLACE. The bed made my ruptured disc worse, giving me excuriciating sciatica. When I went to the front desk to make a request to see the general doctor they ignored me. I had to ask 4 or five more times in order to get any form of treatment for it. When I asked, "Hey, yesterday and today I asked to see the doctor, ASAP." They said, "HE ALREADY LEFT!" HE ALREADY LEFT? I asked to see him yesterday, a few times while he was THERE... Am I to be ignored? - Rooms are shared with one other roommate in a bunker type fasion. You get a cot (about an inch or two thick, a friend I made there said hers had a big hole in hers), one pillow, a thin blanket, and thats it. The rooms are pretty much cement walls with a teeny tiny window. I was roomed with someone going in for Electro-Shock and was suffering from Depression so severe that I could feel her sadness in me. - WHEN I WAS THERE WE WERE NOT ALLOWED OUTSIDE, PERIOD. Want fresh air? Too bad. They had a courtyard but apparently we were not allowed to go there, it was sealed off and all but some idiots had ruined the chance for people to go get a breath of fresh air. - I was there on a four day suicide watch. Day one they let you see both general doctor, in which I complained about having excruciating back pain, and everyday you see a psychiatrist for 10 minutes who pretty much just MOCKS you. - Staff is broken up into three shifts with about 7 or 8 BHAs or something (your own personal watch guard - they check on you ever 10-15 minutes to make sure you didnt kill yourself, and write down literally everything you do that may be a bit off. ), an RN and an LPN. NO SHIFT COMMUNICATES WITH EACH OTHER AT ALL. If you tell someone from morning shift you need something (like to see a doctor), you better make sure you tell night and evening shifts too. They dont communicate. Aside from the building being like an old military bunker with cement block walls and concrete floors, they have a TV Room with one TV, and two other little rooms (one with old books and old games) In short this place was exactly like a low security jail - complete with ex-convicts and all. THEY MIXED ME, a TINY LITTLE GIRL IN WITH SOME PEOPLE WHO BEEN IN PRISON FOR SOME SERIOUS STUFF. I was sexually harassed, solicited sex to, and told by someone that they were masturbating to me in their imagination. On my way out I told my BHA I will never come back again, that I have insurance and I can find a better place to go. She just laughed at me and said, "HA, you think that matters?" The food is not the best, typical Gordon Food Service food for the mass market. School quality. Not sure if I posted this either but another patient with sciatica had a rub on cream for his pain. I requested the same stuff, even using his name to the doctors and telling them, "CAN I HAVE SOME OF THAT?" - they ignored me and offered me a pill instead. LASTLY, visiting hours. 3 hours out of 168 hours in a week do you get to be visited. An hour in the evening on Tuesday and Thursday and some other day probably. You sit in the cafeteria and talk for an hour. Hands above the table with BHAs posted all around.
Nearly committed suicide do to the poison they gave me. I dont know who the hell these people think they are but they better get themselves together before somebody dies. I never felt like committing suicide before and only checked myself in because I was feeling strange thoughts. It turned out it was just some food I ate I felt fine in about a day after being there. After I stopped and found this out I told them about my experience and told them I was fine now and ready to go home. They told me I couldnt leave until further evaluation. I understood this so I was patient with them. They tried to prescribe me a cocktail of pills (over nine a day). I told them I do not like taking pills. I tried to tell them I am feeling better and do not believe I am mentally ill. They said I could not leave here until I worked with them. "we can do this the easy way or the hard way" they said. I just wanted to leave so I decided to try one of there drugs in injection form because the doctors it said would help me feel better than I already did and it was not a pill. This drug just happened to be invega, an extremely psychotropic drug that last over three months because it stays in your blood. They assured me I would be fine. Not even an hour after the shot my whole body shut down. Every muscle was soar. I started to think strange thoughts i never thought before. I couldnt get out of bed. i was constipated one day and had diarrhea the next. throwing up and becoming extremely ill. I was there nearly 30 days before they let me go trying to fix what they had screwed up in my body. After they let me go I was under severe depression for over a year because a tumor started to develop in my brain which was proven to be directly correlated with the drug invega that they gave to me . I HAVE NEVER BEEN DEPRESSED LIKE THAT MY ENTIRE LIFE!!! I Luckily i have gotten over this for the most part but still to this day can not fathom that they could let something like that happen. The only reason I havent sued them yet is because I dont feel right suing a hospital. Even though t I think more people are suffering from there stupid doctors malpractice, they are a big facility that help cure people of illness besides mental health. As for the mental Health facility though, they should be fired or thrown in jail. DO NOT SEND PEOPLE HERE THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING YOU ARE AND YOUR FAMILY WILL BE IN DANGER!!!

I went in to Harbor Oaks voluntarily this past Saturday. I went in because I had strong impulsive suicidal thoughts the past three days. If I had the means to carry out my own death, I would have probably done it after my experience with these people. The receptionist took down my name and made a copy of my drivers license, which is out of state because I just moved here two weeks ago. She then asked for my insurance card, and since I do not have insurance as I am unemployed, she said I could not be accepted there. I questioned this judgment of hers, so she went back to the intake counselor and asked her what to do because I had made it clear that this was urgent and I needed help immediately. The intake counselor instructed her to tell me that I could not receive care there because I had no insurance and no Michigan drivers license or ID. I asked the receptionist to let me speak to the intake counselor. The intake counselor casually came walking out with an irritated look on her face as she was chewing food like her day had just been completely ruined because I interrupted her lunch with my depression. When she finally managed to make her way to the front desk she stared at me for a few seconds before finally and rudely asking "You had a question?" I explained the situation to her and all she had to say was that I could not receive care there because I had no insurance and no state issued drivers license or ID. These people allowed a depressed and suicidal person to walk out of their doors simply because the form of payment issue was not being addressed up front. Little do they know - or should I say care - what the discouraging feeling of being rejected by the only people who can help does to a person who was already feeling hopeless prior to walking through their doors. I highly recommend this place to people who are looking for that final disappointment to push them over the edge. But for those of us looking to fight this and looking for help, please drive right past this horrible and pathetic place.
