This center is a joke. Both "intensive" outpatient and partial hospitalization have failed me. In partial, it was pretty much mental abuse. I lived like a prisoner. They had me sit in a dark room and only could come out during a "meal time". I could only use the bathroom five times a day. There was no interaction. It was very lonely and quiet. I became very sucidal. Before going, I had just gotten out of the hospital and was so happy I got another chance at life. I was restricted water. I was not allowed to stand up. I was forced to be seated on a chair. That was my life. Eat and sit in a dark room with silence. I watched the day slip by as I began to lose my sanity. I had to fight to get out. They told me that my "brain is not thinking clearly" I cannot make my own decisions, because I have an eating disorder. Well guess what? I AM NOT AN EATING DISORDER. Never put this center in control of your own health. Nobody should be punished for having an illness.

The following is my personal e...

The following is my personal experience and the opinions below are presented solely to spare another sick individual from suffering the way I did at the Charis Center

The Charis Center is primarily a eating disorder clinic. Please keep this in mind while reading my review. The first visit was with a Psychologist asking questions and typing in my answers, understandable during a first visit. In my opinion she presented herself as cold but I wanted to give her another chance. During the second visit, I was speaking about my overeating and she actually asked Why don t you stop buying the food? Wow, I never thought of this, I guess I am cured. Then she proceeded to make snide comments about my appearance. I am here because I have all but given up and you are discussing why I am unkempt? I can barely get out of bed but I will dress up for you. Maybe I am making a leap but attacking the aesthetics of a person who has a eating disorder is beyond cruel dare I say sadistic.

I have never experienced such a indifferent and pretentious healthcare provider.She was as cold as a razor blade. She looked at me like I was scum I have never felt so belittled in a therapy situation. Difficult to comprehend why a person would go into a profession where people are desperate and in pain and choose to look down their nose at the sick person.

In my opinion anyone who enters The Charis Center in a delicate condition is in grave danger, of being assigned to this provider, which is akin to playing Russian roulette with your life. In fairness I can t indict the other providers but why take the chance? They tolerate a person who exudes a elitist attitude. People who vetted this person are supposed to be attuned to the human psyche and either choose to dismiss the blatant lack of empathy or they just don t care.
