Do NOT take your loved one to this facility.My son admitted himself there so they could help him with coping skills. Once he discovered they just wanted to medicate him, he asked to leave. They refused to give him discharge papers. They eventually,pushed him to the edge to where he felt he had to take the meds to comply. I had to threaten them with bringing the police with me to get him out of there. They finally admitted they just medicate people then release them. This experience has made him worse than he was before he went in. This company is NOT in it to help people in the long term. They are only there to collect money and send patients out doped up.

Staff was very friendly, however, the NP I saw for my Panic Disorder, he was nice but wasn't willing to put me on meds I have been on in the past for anxiety and panic attacks that actually work. Instead they want to put you on meds made for depression (Zoloft) and an antihistamine for immediate relief instead of Xanax, Valium, or Klonopin....things actually made for anxiety. I left with more anxiety then I walked in with. You go to people for actual help and leave feeling worse then you walked in. I don't mind trying the Zoloft, but giving me antihistamine meds in place of Valium or Xanax, which is made for instant anxiety relief, that's just crazy. I'm going to try this stuff because it was given to me and so I can say I actually tried it, but I have no clue why, when I say I have issues with taking things I've never had, it's part of my anxiety, why they would give me two things I've never taken before; one of which is made for itching relief. In my opinion, they don't listen.
