Rating: 1

Family Counseling Center of Armstrong County is incompetent and archaic in their treatment of mental health. Any mental health situation that they can not handle due to their own incompetence, they choose to treat as criminal, further adding to trauma of clients. They prefer to protect their employees who demonstrate toxic and unethical behavior rather than take care of the mental health of their clients. They have a history of employing people who have questionable ethics and some who have even been stripped of their licenses due to illegal behavior and this agency continues to foster an unsafe environment for clients where these behaviors of their staff are allowed to continue. The incompetence of this agency lies in the very aspect that they claim to be in the business to help people with. This agency is disorganized and will hinder anyone in search of emotional or mental help rather than promote any sort of recovery. The mental and emotional health is actually the very LAST concern of Family Counseling Center of Armstrong County. Furthermore, they take advantage of their clients emotional and mental health to get away with and cover up their employees unethical and illegal behavior. If you need help deciding which pair of shoes to wear for the day, this place is for you. Anything beyond that, you would be better off looking some place else.
