seasonsinmalibu - Treatment Center Reviews (from Users)

1 Reviews









On their website they claim that ninety-five percent of clients surveyed would recommend Seasons to a friend or family member. They must only be surveying the clients with positive experiences. They certainly didn’t survey me. If they had I would have answered “no”. And I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else, either. I spent time at Seasons in the summer of 2013. That was more than a year ago, and Seasons still has not provided me, or my doctors, with my complete medical records, despite my many demands that they do so. I consider this to be extreme negligence. Unfortunately I endured further negligence while at Seasons. Staff would dispense prescription medication, and I was regularly given the wrong pills, including, once, psychiatric medication meant for another client. That kind of mistake should never happen. While I was there I was distressed to discover that what is said in one-on-one therapy is not confidential, but is shared with the admissions officers. They then use what you have said privately to your therapist to try very hard to persuade you to stay. In other words, they use confidential information to manipulate you into giving more money to Seasons. I saw one of them use this ploy on another client. He went so far as to discuss her confidential matters in front of me. Their desire to secure your money outweighs all human decency. In the six weeks I was there, two hikes were arranged and three surfing expeditions. Contrary to what it says on their web site, there was no dream therapy, no hypnotherapy, no kayaking, no equine therapy, no creative writing, no meditation, no neuro-feedback, no nutritional counseling, no recovery-through-acting therapy and no shamanic healing, although the “spiritual counselor” is willing to channel a dead parent or spin your chakra. Seasons does employ many exceptionally kind people. Most of the client advocates, some of the counselors, and all of the chefs are worth their weight in gold. Sadly, they are not the ones responsible for sending medical records.
