What our Patients and their Families are Saying

" I absolutely loved the staff, I felt and knew I was in good hands. I would like to thank everyone here so so much. You all helped loads. I definitely loved that I could talk to people even if it was ridiculas Thanks! Also, when I go home, I'm gonna think of what I learned. And just shock everyone by how I handle all my problems. I'll be so proud because I know I can do it thanks to the staff here. For me, holding back this long and you guys putting all out in the open, is incredible. I always thought I had to keep it in and be miserable for the rest of my life, though you made it all turn around. My perspective on life is completely different I wish I could give everyone a huge thank you so much-God bless y'all. "
" Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, techs and other staff members for taking good care of our baby—We were able to leave here each day knowing he was in good, caring hands! Know that what you do is a gift from God and you touch the lives of more people than you realize in a very positive way. Thank You again! "

What our Patients are Saying

" Absolutely Positively a GREAT program. It gave me the opportunity to be with people who have comparable problems. Because of this program, I can now effectively communicate my problems of depression with my wife and family and they in turn can communicate with me when my actions are less than normal. The entire staff was respectful, helpful and very friendly… Excellent program, excellent people, excellent results. Thank you! "
" Thank you so much for being so kind to me. When I came to you guys I had given up and lost my will to live cause of some of the stuff I been going through. But you guys changed that. You all took care of me until I could take care of me. "
