Chestnut Lodge: 1948–1951

Joanne Greenberg

The author of the acclaimed novel, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, a fictionalized account of her 3-year in-patient treatment at Chestnut Lodge, shares her personal memories and impressions of the experience. Treated by Frieda Fromm-Reichmann at the Lodge from 1948 to 1951, the author mines her memories of the facility, staff, fellow patients, and the treatment itself (including cold packs for sedation). She reflects on an earlier time in the history of treatment for the mentally ill.
