Does anyone know anything about the adult psychiatric treatment programs at the Brattleboro Retreat? Their website makes their programs sound really good, but I've read some pretty negative things both here and elsewhere. The negative things I've heard about it have mostly been to do with employment issues though so I'm not really sure what to think. I'm primarily interested in their Birches outpatient program and the LGBT inpatient program and I'd really appreciate any feedback anyone has on the quality of the treatment.

I have heard that Brattleboro Retreat is an excellent adult center - the residents are treated well, help tremendously -- I also have heard that they cannot brag about the same kudos w/employees. Again, this is the tale I have heard.

I am an RN. I had applied to work there and was called a few times. First time I called I received a very rude receptionist which made an immediate impression on me about the place. I informed the Director Of Nursing about this. However, I had a friend of mine who plainly said to me " You dont want to work there" Being a nurse for 17 years in NJ, I took this as very bad. However, the treatment of patients may be excellent compared to what the staff is treated like.

I have an acquaintance who is a nurse at the Retreat and loves working there.

After what I've read on this forum, though, I don't know what to think.

Maybe things have changed at the Retreat. I know the CEIO has a good reputation.
