I'm headed to the other side of the US for treatment for Bipolar and Schizoaffective disorder. Anyone been to one of these treatment centers? I don't know what to expect or how to prepare. I have to put my life on hold for one to three months. Thanks!

I didn’t know they still had long term (3 month as opposed to the standard 1-2 weeks) facilities in the US. I have been to different inpatient facilities but they were all for when you are a harm to yourself or others and they load you up on meds to get you out in about a week.

It's not a hospital. I was in the hospital for a week in 2017. It's a private facility in California.

I hope it goes well for you! It sounds appealing to be able to be in a controlled environment away from all your normal life stressors while they sort out treatment.
