For those who have been to in-patient treatment for PTSD. What can I expect? As i consented to treatment I am kind of hoping I don't get "locked down" like i have done something wrong.
Indeed, it's unfortunate that you have to visit an Inpatient Behavioral Healthcare Facility in terms of being away from family for potentially an unspecified amount of time!
Albeit, it's probably the best medical behavioral healthcare treatment location which you need to be at the current moment in time!
From all of my experiences via military facilities and civilian facilities while on active duty in the U.S. military to now include the VAMC system, it's dependent upon exactly where you are sent!
If a military facility, then you can potentially expect a "locked down" facility 24/7 without any internet access, and limited telephone privileges albeit visitors are allowed. You shall be screened as to the appropriate "ward" status which decides the type of clothing worn, privileges, and restrictions. You shall receive one-on-one treatment, conference group meetings, group therapy, medication regime, etc.
If a civilian facility, then you can potentially expect a "semi-locked down" facility 24/7 with limited internet access, smoking privileges, fitness activities, phone privileges, group therapy, conference group meetings, medication regime, visitor access, etc.
Please remember that the aforementioned feedback is my experiences and doesn't necessarily transfer and/or translation to anyone else's inpatient behavioral healthcare treatment at this point.
Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer."
