Originally, I did a poor review thinking that Ridgeview had released privileged information to a n individual who suggested privileged information was released about a friend in treatment. However, the professionals quickly clarified this did not occur & would not occur. HIPPA regulations are strictly honored, and this reassurance was a relief. After spending many weeks with the professionals at Ridgeview, I am confident in this program now. It is strict, challenging, and focused on true recovery. Ridgeview helps families identify triggers, and establishes therapeutic methods for the entire family to understand the disease at a higher level. The family support network at times harbors historical pain and anger while the patient progresses through recovery. Professionals at RV help family establish good coping skills & suggestions for individual therapy such as Ala- Non. I am thankful for this program.

Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
