Ratings for Rusk State Hospital
I was involuntary commited by a Dr. at a Longview hospital and taken to Rusk in 05'. I had a bad bout with depression and self harm. The inital interview was with a Arab Dr. who I could not understand. I was then taken to a building where it smelled like a dog kennel. OMG, it took my breath away. I slept by the door in a room with 5 other patients while a tech sat at the door talking all night with the hall lights on. Some women were there from prison to be treated. Some were so medicated that they urinated on themselves. Others were violent and I was hit in the head. Another patient taunted me until I had a psycotic break and had to be sedated myself. The staff was rude and hateful. I cried each night because I was literally scared to death. There were no therapy sessions. You did see about 8 Dr.s in a room each day to be evaluated. I was released after 11 days. It was an experience I will not forget or ever find myself in again. If I had insurance, I would not have been taken there.
