  • Baldpate Hospital is a small, quaint facility in the woods of Georgetown, MA and is a hidden gem among rehabs and detoxes. It's unfortunate that insurance companies now dictate the length of stay at treatment facilities in Massachusetts. It's the same everywhere, not just t Baldpate. Our legislators need to instead of having some flunkie at an insurance company make medical decisions that affect the lives of people that need help longer than the five days that is common among treatment centers in Massachusetts.

  • Very informative and knowledge regarding addiction, dual diagnosis, medication regulation, kind, caring, staff members who are extraordinarily encouraging and motivating. I felt 100% comfortable from the moment I was admitted to the day I was discharged. Each staff member from the kitchen staff to the clinical staff went above and beyond my expectations as to try and treat me as a human being with feelings! They showed the utmost respect towards me and any issue I presented to them. They spent quality time in listening, explaining, comforting me, and worked diligently with me before discharge to plan relapse prevention, positive coping skills, outside resources were also provided. Baldpate was very efficient
