Ascend was astoundingly good - not only for our child, but for what they call our \"family system\". From the very beginning, they made it clear that their goal was to not only help our kid get out of crisis, but also to help the family develop an environment and communication patterns that would help keep them out. We miss Madison (our kid\'s and our family therapist) SO MUCH, and only hope that we continue to find such good and comprehensive care going forward.

UNBELIEVABLY INCOMPETENT, UNSAFE AND IRRESPONSIBLE! IN BARELY 24 HRS THEY MADE A DECISION TO HAVE MY GRANDDAUGHTER LEAVE ON AN OUTING. TWO DAYS PRIOR SHE SHE HAD CPR FOR AN OVERDOSE. WITHOUT TRULY UNDERSTANDING HE STATE OF MIND THEY LET HER OUT, AND SHE RAN OFF AND GOT INTO AN PASSING CAR.. THEY HAD NO REAL UNDERSTANDING OF HER PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE AND ACTED IN A MOST IRRESPONSIBLE, UN PROFESSIONAL, AND DANGEROUS MANNER. DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE WITH YOUR LOVED ONES. N PSY.D. DOCTOR OF PSYCHOLOGY THIS IS MY OPINION BASED UPON UPON INFORMATION PROVIDED.

    Ascend is responsible for my son getting his life back. He has a complex medical history, in addition to a serious opiate addiction. Other programs denied his participation based on his medical concerns. Ascend worked closely with me and should commitment to his recovery at every turn. The clinical staff understood addictions, pain and mental health concerns.The counselors were excellent role models and developed strong bonds with them. I am eternally grateful.

    On all levels, from staff and facility, through academics and activities, to real lasting recovery, this has been a top of the line experience. Whole person-in-context view point that allows for true recovery and healthy transition.
