    CenterPointe’s outpatient programs offer the same quality care, information, education and opportunity for recovery as inpatient treatment and can be an effective alternative to an inpatient or residential stay. Outpatient care may be used as the point of entry for behavioral health treatment or as a step-down or transition to a less restrictive level of care. At the time of assessment or admission, the admitting psychiatrist and CenterPointe assessment team determine placement in the appropriate level of care based on each patient’s individual needs. Outpatient assessment and treatment services are provided at the main St. Charles location as well as at five additional satellite offices throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area.

I went here twice for inpatient to get clean off heroin. I’ve been clean for over 7 years thanks in part to my own determination but also because centerpointe gave me the tools to navigate life sober. It’s one of the best rehabs in STL. That being said the success rate of being clean isn’t based off a rehab, it’s honestly random. When you first arrive you’re separated from inpatient members while you detox for 24-72 hours. You are given meds to help ease the withdrawals but it’s not magic. You’re going to be dopesick. After this you join inpatient and stay usually for 14-28 days depending on what the doctor recommends and financial situations. During my time in inpatient we had to get up every morning at 6:30, we’re given meds, went to meetings, had individual therapy, had group therapy, had recovering addicts come speak to us, and saw a psychiatrist. You’re allowed to smoke cigarettes and the food is decent. It’s not a luxury spa , but you should realize that bc it’s a rehab. It’s not dirty either. It’s sanitary and basic. The staff there truly cares. They invest their life in trying to give you the tools to succeed. They’re honest with you, never sugarcoating it, and will do what’s best for you long term. They’re not abusive but some will think they’re tough (as they ought to be). That being said any rehab is a good option for someone looking to get clean.

My tween daughter was there 6 months ago; was totally traumatized by the experience...There is also a lot of yelling in the unit, some of it by the staff, as they try to control children. The psychiatrist only worked before his private practice, from 5 to 7 am, then would ask my child to rate how she felt on a scale of 1-10 at 5 or 6 am in the morning. The psychiatrist was not ever available, and just relayed messages from staff, some of whom spoke very poor English. This is truly a \"One Flew Over the Cuckoo\'s Nest\" type of mental incarceration. I so regret taking my child there!

    I had a great experience at CenterPointe Hospital, I have been free of Heroin for 10 months now. I could not have done this without the help of doctors and staff at CenterPointe.I followed up with outpatient services in St.Peters and I feel great

      centerpoint seemed to work for my 19 year Old daughter, I will say that the staff is less than perfect And it\'s obvious \"protocol\" is lacking from Management,.. Keep a close eye on ALL prescriptions as my ..So mistakes DO happen here All in all the medical and therapy staff truly care And are effective. Communication skills with parents Or loved ones responsible for patients could be Drastically improved.. But I still give it 4 out of 5 stars.

      Went here for heroin detox. During admission I was told this is a voluntary program and that you can leave at any time...There are no discharges on weekends so be prepared for that excuse. I walked in and immediately knew I messed up because it literally looks like prison. If there isn\'t room is the regular unit they\'ll throw you in the \"acute\" unit. The regular unit is always full so also be prepared for that. Unfortunately all units are a mix of drug detox and violent psychiatric patients. Here is how my first day went: I walked in to my room. There was dried puke next to my bed. They have men and women share a bathroom which has no locks on the doors. The entire place smells like feces and urine. There was dried blood smeared all over the floor. Gnats and ants were everywhere. Many of the psych patients would randomly freak out and hit people or start screaming and breaking things. Lots of people talking to themselves. The food is always cold/soggy and so gross you can\'t get it down. This really stunk because I needed to put on some weight. My medical doctor ordered me 3 nutritional supplements and 3 gatorades a day. I never got these. The doctor must have written it on my chart 5 different times yet the nurses would say they didn\'t see it on my chart. When I\'d ask for a bandage change, or my Gatorade, or even just a blanket, I would get the worst attitude and disrespect I have ever experienced. It is reall terrifying being alone in a unit with violent schizophrenics and nurses who truly do not care about anyone. When my parents came to visit, they were absolutely horrified and as soon as they got home, began calling to try and get me discharged. A staff member actually hung up on my mom. Twice. This place only cares about making money off its patients.
