ABOUT WYOMING BEHAVIORAL INSTITUTE
Wyoming Behavioral Institute is a private acute-care psychiatric hospital that treats children, adolescents, and adults for a range of mental and behavioral health problems, including substance abuse. Substance abuse treatment options include detox, inpatient, and outpatient treatment.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The length of treatment varies from case to case, but is generally between seven and 10 days for adult inpatients. Treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation to help diagnose any underlying medical or biochemical origins of addiction. Each client is assigned an individualized treatment plan that may include individual, group, and family therapy, 12-step support groups, discharge planning, expressive therapy, medication education/management, and psycho-educational groups.
The treatment plan focuses on attainable goals established with the input of the client's family and referring professional, if appropriate. Active family involvement in treatment is considered a critical component of the client’s recovery.
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets for three hours, three times a week, in the evening. General outpatient treatment is also offered.
Longer-term residential care is available for adolescents only, at the Pathways residential program, a therapeutic community that offers treatment for a range of mental and behavioral health disorders.
According to the facility’s website, staff includes numerous psychiatrists, nurses, licensed professional counselors, and licensed clinical social workers, plus a chaplain. The two individuals polled on the staff’s level of training and experience at the time of this writing gave it two and four stars out of five.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
This is an 85-bed facility. Photographs published on the facility’s website show a somewhat clinical facility with very simple shared bedrooms. There’s a school on-site for elementary, junior high, and high school students.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The single review submitted to Rehabs.com at the time of this writing was very negative. “If you value your life do not go here!! ... unclean, and terrifying!! STAY AWAY FROM HERE,” J.L. wrote.
In addition, secondary reviews sites also yielded mostly negative feedback, with average ratings of 1.9 stars on Google (based on 19 reviews) and 1.5 stars on YellowPages.com (based on nine reviews).   On Yelp, the center has received just two one-star reviews.
Recurring criticisms cited overmedication, staff rudeness, a lack of proper care and attention, and a feeling that the organization was more concerned with money than with treating its clients. In a representative review, Yelp reviewer Michelle wrote: “This place is down right wrong. It's scary and not helpful at all… They did not do any one on one therapy, I had to practically beg to see the doctor, and then when I did, she looked at her computer the whole time and didn't even care to talk to me.” Yet Google reviewer Charessa offered more nuanced feedback: “I was over medicated when I was here but it saved my life and they've saved many others, not all the staff are nice but some are.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The two loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave mixed feedback. Though they both gave the facility four stars for the overall quality of its treatment and its family program, one said they would recommend treatment at Wyoming Behavioral Institute while the other would not, and both reviewers gave the facility lower ratings (of two and three stars) for its exercise and holistic options. There was little correlation in their commentary — one reviewer praised the treatment options but felt treatment was too short, while the other wrote: “Staff, rooms, treatment were weaknesses of the facility.”
The facility has yet to publish insurance details for its inpatient program, but a brochure for its outpatient services indicates that Medicaid and most other forms of insurance are accepted.
