I was referred to Genpsych for DBT therapy and I am currently in the program. I wish I had been referred sooner.The thoroughness of the program: they handle insurance so you don't have to worry about it, individual therapy, group therapy and medication management is all under one roof, so the therapists and doctor all know what's going on and there is good communication among the staff. The caring of the staff: From the receptionist, to the insurance coordinator, to the group facilitators, doctor and therapists. There's a 24/7 help line that doesn't go to some random answering service. It goes to one of the therapists you see every day. They remember details. What you told them last time, to the smallest detail. Any psychiatrist I've been to has to pull up my file on the computer and have me "refresh their memory".The quality of the program: they know what they're doing. Everyone here is a master at what they do and communicate the knowledge and skills in a way you can understand and apply to your situation. It's so different than just reading a self help book.The feedback from other group members: I wasn't sure what to expect from the group. I am pleasantly surprised to be surrounded by insightful, intelligent people who give great feedback and care because they relate to your situation. Very supportive.I am so glad I'm in this program. The other patients seem to feel the same way. It's a well kept secret.

This place is amazing! For the first time in my life, I feel as if my feelings are being validated. I struggled with self harm for a number of years and because of my therapist at GenPsych, I haven't cut in over 3 months. It's the longest I've ever gone. I thank the knowledgeable therapists and doctors for the support they offered while I was there. If you need help, go here.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
