A Word From Our Patients

Thank you for all you did and helped me with. You are amazing at your job. You really made me feel cared for and safe. Even though I’ll be back in England at the end of July, I will remember your words and lessons. You truly have helped me be a better me. I wish you the best of luck in your future and keep changing lives.

I’ve learned a lot from you. You are very good at what you do. There were many days I’ve been confused and messed up emotionally, and you’ve brought me back to some clarity. Thank you for being here for me.

I found this to be a very informative, well-run group, and it was never boring! The treatment team was professional and helpful at a stressful time.

I found this to be very informative.

Each of us feels that the staff in the TCU (Transitional Care Unit) exceeded our expectations in care, not only individually but also in group therapy. Every single day they cared for us by doing little things, like making coffee, cleaning our bathrooms, offering new towels, to the big things like giving us our medications and providing us with quality therapy and care. The staff listened to our stories and concerns with open ears and no judgment…They are not only great professionals but great people as well.
