I didn't like how the first shift was towards me they had a lot of additude and raising their voices,and that triggered me a lot,2nd shift was a whole lot better you can ask for stuff and they will help in every way to make sure you get what you need, I didn't like the fact they gave me 2 year old 2019 CHOCOLATE MILK,it was the most disgusting thing that I've ever had in my mouth,also had hair in my food I hope this teaches them they need to check their food and milks often so this doesn't happen to someone else their groups were boring I didn't learn anything really from it I felt I was I was in jail that I couldn't go outside to get some fresh air all we did was stare at 4 walls all day that made my mental health worse being there, I didn't like the fact people were outbursting and that triggered it, I was so stressed out that by the day before I left I was on high blood medication other then that stuff it was alright wouldn't recommend it unless it's an emergency situation.

I have stayed at the Ridge 12 times in the past year and a half. I also stayed in 5 other hospitals for the same mental health problems. Out of all of the hospitals I have stayed in The Ridge was BY FAR the most helpful one. The staff that you deal with on a daily basis truly care for you and you can tell that they do. They all take extra time to talk if you need it and want the best for you. I was worried going back so many times that they would give up or be frustrated but every time I needed to return I was welcomed back and cared for just like any other patient. The Ridge's psychiatric inpatient is not intended for long term treatment, but just as something to keep you safe in the moment you are at your lowest and they did the best job out of any other hospital at it. The therapists, both for inpatient and outpatient, were wonderful, especially on the adolescent unit. The Psychiatrists are the only bad thing about The Ridge in my opinion. I was misdiagnosed and the meds they were putting me on made things a lot worse for me, which led to me having to return so many times. Once I was diagnosed correctly by an outpatient doctor I never returned. I cannot thank The Ridge enough for all they do and have done for me. They make it feel like a safe place for you to share and help yourself. The food is excellent and you have plenty of activities that are fun every day so you aren't just sitting around all day. I met some wonderful people there. The MHTs you work with on a daily basis are the most caring/loving people and I cannot thank them enough for all that they do. I would recommend The Ridge to anyone, any day, in a heartbeat. It was BY FAR the best hospital in Lexington and the surrounding areas and if it weren't for them I do not know where I would be today.
