    Valerie, 45 – Female. January 2017

    I called on a Sunday and admissions happened to pick up the phone. I was very emotional but the gentleman on the phone completely put me at ease. He asked enough questions to help me to feel understood an heard then explained the process in a way that was calming and encouraging. I felt very safe at a moment in my life that I was very unsure. I came in the next day and yet another admissions team member was amazing as well. She was caring and sympathetic. She is definitely represents The Center perfectly. Again, I felt safe.

    I truly would not be here if even one slight thing felt off. For me, the timing was exactly what I needed. I can’t think of any way that I would have felt more confident in my experience.I needed some distance from the chaos of my life to get perspective and direction. I have known for a long time the things that I needed to do for myself and my family but could not find a peaceful place in my soul to even think straight. My goal was to reframe my life and find myself in the mess. I wasn’t sure what that meant.

    My experience with my treatment team was very cohesive. I felt that each member was informed and a part of my assessment and goals of care. In my professional life, I am responsible for pulling information across multiple disciplines and levels of care and it sometimes feels impossible to create a comprehensive plan of care. Here, I felt that I was gently moved through a team of providers who were qualified to contribute their individual perspective and they came up with a pretty clear picture of what I needed. When the plan of care was presented to me it was completely on target.

    My medical team was able to provide me with the medical support that I needed both physically and emotionally. I know how rare that is. I felt in charge of my healthcare decisions with the support I needed.

    I only had one Faith group but I was so moved by France’s delivery and inspiration. I walked out of the class and realized that, though I was raised Catholic and religion was a big part of my life, I finally truly understood what faith meant.

    I think my appreciation comes across pretty clearly in my previous comments but I will re-iterate how impressed I have been. Some words to describe, safe, supported, informed, guided, stabilized, connection. Thank you



    Heather, 55 – Female. January 2017

    I came to A Place of Hope to improve my depression, isolation and suicidal ideation. My treatment team was very professional, caring and understanding. I really felt that I made some breakthroughs that will stick with me as I leave the program.

    I think that the intense 1:1 and the emotional abuse class were probably my most beneficial. They helped to focus on the trauma and the DBT classes helped with tools. I am getting close to radical acceptance of my situation. I just want to say Thank You SO much for helping me on this long journey. I’m trying to not be dependent on the Center when I start getting to a really dark place, but I feel blessed that you are so close that I have been able to seek shelter here when it was needed. You have changed my life and I am forever grateful. God bless.


    Rachel, 22 – Female. January 2017

    I came to The Center because I wanted to be able to address my issues head on and no longer ignore what was right in front of me. I wanted to be able to learn new tools to be able to cope with every day life.

    I really enjoyed my treatment team. They were amazing!!! I felt like I was able to go to any of them for anything.I loved the structure that was provided and how we had a schedule. I loved the different groups and how it was individualized. Overall, The Center was an amazing experience. These past eight weeks have been life changing. It was hard, gut-retching hard. But it was worth every terrifying, unsure moment. Thank you so much for this experience. I come away from it with tools I never knew existed and a hope I never knew I could have.


    Matt, 37 – Male. December 2016

    The admission team was very helpful in informing me what to expect, and they were polite and helpful. The welcome and orientation was good. The front desk staff was awesome, and they were quick to answer questions about where I was suppose to be.

    The treatment team is world class. I have worked for large fortune 500 companies that were much less organized. 

    Joseph, 31 – Male. December 2016

    The admissions team was wonderful. They made me feel heard and they spoke with a genuine tone when we talked about my conditions.

    My experience with my treatment team felt like a warm blanket was thrown over me. I felt very taken care of and heard. My medical team was wonderful. My medications had to be altered a few times and they were patient and educated with the process.

    The Center: A Place of Hope has literally saved my life. I went from feeling suicidal to feeling like I can conquer the world. They helped me develop healthy habits that I plan to continue after leaving. I will be in touch with the team here to update them on my progress. I will definitely spread the word on how powerful the healing process is here at the Center. Thank you. Thank you so much.

    Corey, 19 – Male. December 2016

    My primary goals in coming to treatment were to develop a plan for how I am to stay sober after I leave the Center and to really dive into and explore the primary forces and motives behind my drinking and alcoholism, hopefully correcting some of those old thought patterns as well.

    The admissions team members were extremely helpful in making sure I received the proper care as soon as I reached out to them. One team member made a significant effort to get me admitted as soon as possible.

    My treatment team was excellent. They were very good at making me feel comfortable and helping me address my problems.

    I found the combination of one-on-ones and group therapy to be beneficial.

    Scot, 58 – Male. December 2016

    My experience with my treatment team over all was fantastic! The team was excellent and very helpful! Everyone was kind and supportive.

    The experience with my medical team was also excellent! They were able to answer questions and concerns in a timely fashion.

    The DBT sessions were very helpful for me. In the past, I had thought of it as a program exclusively for borderline personality disorders. I now understand that it can be helpful for so many other issues as well.

    I would like to thank Dr. Jantz and anyone else that was involved in allowing me to stay at the Serenity House. A huge thank you to all of the staff! Great job!!! May God bless you all!

    Carrie, 23 – Female. December 2016

    The admissions team was great! They help me get ready for coming here and making sure I brought what I needed.

    The orientation was a very busy day and we received a lot of information and I believe that it was given in a very well planned manner.

    I had an amazing treatment team that help through my journey here and gave me skills that will continue to help me through the rest of my life. My medical team Doctor was amazing I wish I could take her with me she was more than just a nutritionist and helped me to figure out some of the things I would like to try in my life.

    I found the DBT to be extremely helpful and I plan to continue with a group when I leave. Before coming here I would never have been able to walk into a group on my own. Having it set up where I came in with other people and we were all in the same boat together I felt more comfortable doing something that I was afraid to do.

    The center s a turning point in my life I no longer feel crippled by the unknown. I’m actually starting to enjoy it! If I hadn’t come here I don’t think I would be alive today. I cant even thank everyone here enough. I now know that I can conquer my demons and I will live a happy life and my spirituality and faith in God are returning which is something I never thought I would get back. I am ready for my life and everyone here helped to get me to where I am today. Thank you all!

    Stefan, 24 – Male. December 2016


    My treatment team was absolutely awesome! They are two of the most influential people I have encountered in my life and I will absolutely stay in contact with them.

    My first day in the Welcome/Orientation session was very intense but overall I did enjoy the experience. I really feel like there is no easy way to integrate others into a pool of continuously changing amount of people.

    The Center is a wonderful place and I am ready to take on what life has lined up for me because I now have the tools to be the person I want to be.

    Kiersten, 21 – Female. December 2016

    I felt very welcome and the Admissions Team were very supportive and understanding. I didn’t feel judged or pushed to do anything I didn’t want to do. They also answered my questions very thoroughly and always replied via text or call swiftly.

    I really enjoyed ED homeroom. That was the class I benefitted from the most. It was my safe haven. I could open up and talk about my issues freely with ease.

    I am very thankful that I was able to come to The Center and have this experience. The staff and clients made this place easy to settle into. 


    Maria, 29 – Female. December 2016

    It was a very smooth process! I was able to talk to someone right away when I called and answered the questions I had about the program. We booked my intake assessment and bam, I was here two weeks later. I was very impressed with the quick turn around time and all the information I was sent before coming. It also made me feel so much better that they helped so much with a shuttle after my flight!

    I think the treatment team truly a special, special group of people that genuinely care about the work that they do. I know some of them that worked with me went through their own dark times and were able to share to relate to where I am at, but also to give me hope that there is healing and victory after the work.

    I love the Christian music always playing! It is awesome that this is a Christian facility and made known that Christ is the key part of healing process, but they let the patients figure that out for themselves instead of pushing it on them. I really like that because I watched several hearts change while I have been here because of that.

    I am grateful for my time at The Center and would encourage others to come here is they are looking for quality care from an experienced staff.
