They vary...a lot!: Your question is analogous to asking "What are cars like?" The range may vary from an impersonal, ghoulish state psychiatric facility to a plush, luxurious private facility offering gourmet meals and personal trainers. What you should be asking about is accreditation by the appropriate state agency; the qualifications of the professional staff; its reputation in treating your condition.
