Addiction Institute of New York St. Lukes Review by Anonymous
A member review of the rehab center completed on Monday, July 27, 2009 3:58 PM MST.
This hospital was really, really mediocre. (I am being kind.) I brought my elderly mom there for rehab (alcoholism) and anxiety. There were a few very dedicated (ridiculously overworked) people who tried to help but otherwise there was literally no care, it was a dingy, horrible facility with no natural light, inedible food etc., and virtually no therapeutic activities that I could discern. For four days no one came to take her to a 12 step0 meeting (!!!) and she had no therapy, nothing. No one seemed to care how she was and she deteriorated. The doctor we had was an imbecile and the nurses seemed to ignore his directives; there was zero communication among members of her medical team. A terrible experience. She was placed on the 5th floor (the Asian floor) but maybe it is different on the 3rd floor (the subtance abuse floor). Payne Whitney is WAY better. (She was there 5 years ago.)

Thenperson wrting above may indeed had his mother in St. Luke's Roosevelt, but has all of the information wrong, as someone who was admitted to the inpatient rehab unit would've been cared for on the 9th floor, not the "Asian Floor" or the 5th floor.
