I am quite shocked at the amount of poor reviews. After going to 4 other Psychiatric facilities over a 60+ day period I can tell you that you will not find a better Hospital in the state of Texas. I stayed on the CPAS unit for a little over 6 weeks, the staff was fantastic and friendly, they actually care about you, and genuinely want to help. Most of the staff has been there for 5+ years and their experience shows. Shout out to Anthony who is now a charge nurse for the HOPE unit. He really helped me out especially in the beginning. I received quite a bit of 1 on 1 care from nurses, doctors, and staff. 1 to 2 hour sessions with my psychiatrist and psychologist. I've never EVER seen any doctor sit down with me for over an hour in my entire life. Numerous activities and group therapy sessions every day. I have extremely bad anxiety being around people, I was so scared the first two days I didn't leave my room and had panic attacks. The nurses helped me through the anxiety and before I knew it I was playing ping pong with people, playing video games, and showing up to the group sessions. Every patient was more than welcoming, we all were there for similar reasons, you can really relate with patients and see how different mental illnesses effect people. You will learn so much just from getting to know everyone on your unit. In my experience with other hospitals I've been to, they discharge within a week or 2, had considerably less group sessions/therapy, and almost no 1 on 1 other than 15 minutes with your doctor, and all you could do was watch bad TV or sleep. Being on a unit for a longer period of time, at least for me, really allowed me to get the help I needed. Genetic testing, really comprehensive psychological evaluation, physical health eval, MRI's, sleep studies, blood work. Honing in on your proper medication/dosing, therapy both group and solo, they test for EVERYTHING. This isn't a clinic you go to just to get stable, this is a clinic to help you in the long run, help develop tools and strategies to cope with your mental illness. Menninger means business... I took 1 500 question test O.o and another 250+ question test for my psych eval, even did the good old Rorschach ink blotter test. My experience there definitely changed my life. Am I perfect? No, but I certainly can deal with life better than when I went in. It's the only facility that has had a major impact on my life and my thinking. I can't speak for the other units and staff, but as of the end of 2018, CPAS is top notch, and I'd imagine the other programs are as well. It is the place to be if you need REAL, calculated, and attentive mental healthcare. I also wanted to point out that the addiction counselors were very honest and realistic. It was refreshing to see a bit of a different approach to addiction treatment. Although addiction is not the main focus at Menninger you do have some good options available if you are proactive about recovery. Shout out to Dr. Rodgers for being the first Psychiatrist I've ever met that really took their job seriously, actually wants to help you, and takes the time to properly assess you. He is a true Doctor. Shout out to Dr. Arnold for caring just as much as Dr. Rodgers does, for being open minded, passionate about your work, and a strong desire to decipher the mind. These Doctors are professional, extremely well educated, fascinated by their work, and it shows.
At first, I hated it. I felt trapped. We found that I had a benign tumor in my brain. After my surgery, I was happy. Now, I’m really happy! Shoutout to Kaitlyn.
The care and attention they provided was EXCELLENT - I'd HIGHLY recommend Menninger Clinic.
It has been 10 Years ago today since I entered menningers treatment program, I was scared to death coming all the way from my home in MN, where I was inpatient for a month following a suicide attempt, I can only talk positive about the program and how it changed my life and all that I learned well I was there. The skills that I learn well there I use daily and know that they have help me get to the point I am at now. Today also marks 10 Years sober for me. I was hoping to make to trip down there to get my 10 year chip the same place I got my first chip however I am not able to. But I will get my chip back here at home in MN. Yesterday I turned 36 Years old something that 10 Years ago I didn't think I would make it. I am very happy yes still on medication for my mental illness, but much less then in the past. I am happy Home onwer, been at the same employer for 15 Years.
The adolescent unit worked so hard to help me and I can confidently say that because of menninger I am a stronger and healthier version of myself. All other hospitals I've been to do not even compare to how amazing this place is.
Menninger Clinic is amazing. Coming to it as a skeptic of any treatment provider's actually ability to help me change the destructive path I was on, I say this with all honesty: Menninger rocks. The care and insight that they bring to the table is unmatched. I came in suicidal and broken and dependent on all sorts of destructive behaviors to survive, and I left in one piece, positive about life and the world, and excited for my role in it. They helped me put all of the broken pieces of my life back together again, and showed me how life could be worth it. I was on the Compass Young Adults unit, summer of 2012, and the milieu therapy of being surrounded by my peers, and giving and receiving feedback/support, was just as helpful as the therapy provided by the experts and the day-to-day care provided by the nurses and MHAs. It's such a well-balanced, well-structured program, and add to that how beautiful the new facility is... well, let's just say, Menninger is first place in the business of saving lives. Five stars, and highly recommended. Take a chance, give life a chance, and give Menninger the chance to help you put your pieces back together again. It's worth it. By the way, my insurance didn't cover long term 24/7 psych treatment, but I was able to get my insurance to cover treatment at the out-of-network coverage level after a couple of appeals.
Our son (diagnosis - schizophrenia) went to Menninger after being in a drug detox program for three weeks. Three stars due to staff in billing and mainly due to minimal emphasis on addiction issues, but excellent place for mental health and stabilization. His stay was 3 1/2 weeks. It helped our son stabilize and was a controlled environment for testing, assessment, etc., which he never would have agreed to under our watch. He became stable here so that he could move on to a long term care facility. The social worker was very helpful in assisting us in finding the right fit for our son and in guiding us in the right direction for his continuous care. Very expensive; their billing could be better laid out so that you could get some reimbursement for non-network coverage. (Example, dividing out the therapy, etc. - I am still waiting for reimbursement, so we shall see). The person in billing was clueless about coinsurance, etc., and refused to contact our insurance company for preauthorization so that we could get reimbursed. She yelled at me "I will not call your insurance company!" okay............. once they have your money, little effort to help you get any of it back from insurance. So, in short, if the person has only mental health issues and you have zero plans of getting anything reimbursed - great place.
I stayed at Menninger for about a month and a half at the age of 15. This hospital was a very good and helpful experience. They treated me with the alt most care, and the programs if the same were extremely helpful. I remember Donna and Frank, i can't quite remember anyone else due to the fact that i was ill, but it was a very pleasant and memorable experience. Thank you very much.
