I was a patient here in the spring of 2014.I attended outpatient group twice a week. This was the most awful experience I have ever experienced. I came here seeking treatment by my school and what i got was absolutely horrible. Coming to this place twice a week was the most awful feeling. The employees were no where near professional.
