I had a friend who went there for grief counseling after her mother passed away, she was really at the bottom of her rope, in 2 or 3 weeks, she came out perfectly normal & happier than I have ever before seen her. She had been full-time caretaker for her mother for several years prior to her death. She left Shands Vista in Gainesville with a new outlook on life. She started dressing professional, taking great care of her appearance, landed a very good job, bought herself a new car, goes to church regularly & that has been 6 years ago & I have never seen her sad or depressed again. She’s always got a big smile on her face & always helping others. It’s like she’s embraced life with a new attitude - almost like she found “the answer” while staying at Vista. They MUST be doing something right!
If you need help detoxing this is where you want to go. Very nice and clean. Professional DR's and nurses
Horrible nurses, psych techs and doctors...
These people had the nerve to deny me from seeing my 13 year old daughter while she was in their facility. I have a 50/50 legal right to her. They allowed her mother access during this time, but not me. They did not listen to my daughter or her needs, and it was a complete waste of time due to this. She is now more traumatized than before she even entered. Also, the therapist, (Eric)that spoke to my daughter and I in group didn't listen to us, and once again, did not help.
I wasn't at Vista but on Unit 82. Glad to see nothing has changed. I was kept there exactly 30 days suddenly I was able to go home. Almost went through the court process. You are correct in all you say, too bad it will not be any different in years to come. Those of us with a mental illness are all believed to be incompetent idiots.
