A Word From Our Patients

mother daughter

Hi there, To all the facility staff. I just wanted to say thank you for everything. I also would say the staff here is well equipped with the techniques to handle any of us mental health patients. I am 5 months clean as of the 21st of May from weed, cigarettes, vape, energy drinks, alcohol, coffee, etc. By far this life change has helped me phenomenally. Thank you for the personal experience and wonderful training to be a better me.

I think the facility is perfect. If it wasn’t for this place I would not have seen the bigger picture. When you need help, go get it.

- Former Patient

‘I would like to compliment all of the staff including Dr. Carmen and Phoebe (social worker) who worked on the Horizon Unit during 12/27/18 to 1/4/19. Special regards to Cass (social worker), Bernard, Kate, Noella, Kendall, Kristen and Carrie. Your facility is the absolute best and my favorite psych ward in the area. Keep rockin’ it!’

- Former patient

The entire staff were so kind and awesome! I’m grateful for them caring enough to take the time to talk to me and let me talk!

- Former Patient

‘The staff on the Horizon unit were kind, considerate and compassionate. They helped me feel safe, secure and to put my best foot forward by teaching and modeling how to do so. The employees rocked it. Personally, I feel that each and every one of them deserve an award or commendations for their excellent work.’

- Former patient

Thank you for supporting me and believing in me.

It was awesome, it really helped me learn about my mental illness and self! that I’m not alone in my journey. Thank you so much for helping me through the pain, you all were awesome!

- Former patient

‘The staff listened and was personable, including the psychiatrist , Dr. Muhammad, who helped me a lot. This is the best mental health treatment experience I’ve had.’

- Former patient

‘I have become less anxious, and my self-harm and suicidal thoughts have gone down. I am enjoying my time here.’

- Former patient

‘My treatment is going good because I’m on the right medications. Also, the staff is really helpful.’

- Former patient
young man

‘It was really helpful for me. I liked the help, mostly in yoga and meditation.’

- Former patient

I think all the staff did everything they needed to do to keep a happy safe and healthy stay for every patient.

- Former Patient

“I was a patient in the Compass Unit and just wanted to thank you for the wonderful staff and service with my time there. I did Customer Service for an airline and understand that working in the public sector can be a very “thankless” job at times and just wanted to give you the “thumbs up” and vote I’d appreciation for your staff and facilities.. It may have been my best yet!”
