ABOUT PARKWOOD BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SYSTEM IN OLIVE BRANCH, MS

Parkwood Behavioral Health System, set on a 37-acre campus in Olive Branch, Miss., offers outpatient and residential treatment programs for adults, adolescents, and children.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Residential treatments are available for children (ages 4 to 11), adolescents (ages 12 to 17), and adults (one group includes those older than 18; another for those aged 50 or older). Partial hospitalization programs and outpatient programs are offered for adolescents and adults. Individual, group, and family counseling is available for everyone.

Young males (aged 13 to 17) who have potentially dangerous sexual behavior can be enrolled in a residential program.

Assessments are provided at no cost.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Residential rooms share two twin beds and a large armoire. A basketball court and outdoor recreational area with volleyball court are available to use.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Overwhelmingly negative reviews for this facility populate third-party websites, with concerns ranging from a lack of professionalism to limited resources.

Google Reviews shows an overall score of 1.8 stars out of a possible five. An anonymous alumni wrote on Google Reviews: “Very little therapeutic treatment, my first day there was spent in absolute fear of staff due to none of them seeming to have any actual professionalism in their jobs.”[1]

One anonymous reviewer wrote on CiteHealth:“Being a Parkwood was a nightmare. You are treated like inmates not patients who are paying for the services. Parkwood does everything to cut costs and it shows from being understaffed to ugly horrible rooms.” Another on the same site responded: “This place is a living hell. It should be shut down.”[2]

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Friends and family commenting on third-party sites and Rehabs.com responded less harshly than alumni with mixed reviews.

“This facility offers spiritual healing as well as compassionate and caring counselors who is encouraging and considerate.”

An anonymous reviewer on CiteHealth wrote: “i have heard many horror stories about this place and all came out to be true. I recently had a family member at this place and she asked for a discharge the next day.”

Dylan wrote on Google Reviews: “Absolutely horrible. With the way they've treated my loved ones, this place should be shut down. They are horrible, and scream at kids, and make all the problems you were sent there for worse.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

The sole staff member polled by Rehabs.com gave the facility all five stars on every category reviewed, including accomodations, counseling options, and treatment effectiveness. The staff member wrote: “The staff is caring and makes sure that the proper care is received.”

FINANCING

An assessment is provided at no cost, according to the facility’s website. Medicare is provided for inpatient and outpatient care.

It was honestly the worst 4 days of my life. I went bc substance abuse and the therapist don't sit down with you. They wake you at 7 in the morning and force you to go to groups all day even if you're feeling terrible from detoxing. The food stunk and when my sister came to get me the wicked witch of the west kept asking me all these question as to why I was leaving and then the the woman called the doctor and got a hold put on me and I had to wait till the next day to leave even after my sis had gotten there. I would rather go to jail than I had that shit hole. I feel so bad for the people in there.

Welcome to boot camp. Be prepared to experience hell on earth. You literally sit there all day and play cards with people. You don't learn squat. You don't get help. All they do is collect your money. Don't go here at all.

It only works if you want it to. You have to help yourself with their help.
