Waste of time. I went there for therapy and med management. After I had an intake in Feburary of 2020 and show an OK therapist once after that. I needed to reschedule my thrid appointment and couldn't get a hold of anyone. When I finally got someone on the phone I got an attitude from a woman who called herself the CEO stating I was discharged due to not beign seen in 30 days. When I attempted to explain I was TRYING to call everyday she hung up on me. Some other reviews say there are compliants filed with the state so I guess I had it pretty good compared to some of the other people who go here. Don't bother I guess since the state will shut this place down. I hope that woman who hung out on me gets better training or a warning from the actual CEO, because if that's the CEO I feel bad for not only the clients, but there staff.
