This is ABSOLUTELY the best program in the country for treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a Clinician I found this program to be based on cutting edge research for the cause, effect and treatment of symptoms. The NOI addresses the broad spectrum of PTSD and it's easily misdiagnosed symptoms, such as Depression, Dissociation, Compulsions, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Sexual Disorders, Personality Disorders (Borderline, Anti-Social, Narcissistic, Schizoaffective , etc).As a person diagnosed with PTSD receiving treatment I found this program challenging. It is far more challenging than other programs I have encountered. The payoff is also far greater. Working with a treatment team that has been together for a decade plus, provides continuity of care in a secure environment. I was treated as an individual with individual symptoms vs one treatment for all. I was treated like an adult, given respect and allowed the comforts of home. This is a program for those who take their recovery seriously.

One of the main issues I have with this hospital is that the location moved and it takes 15 minutes before you get on the phone with an actual person. On top of that the receptionists are snappy and unwilling to help. It took two weeks before a referral was processed. For a business that operates by reviewing referrals and then making appointments, it does not happen quickly. If you have a condition that is difficult to live with, they tell you to go to the ER. Obviously, if someone is going to the doctor, they have a hard to manage condition. So, when you get a referral sent, make sure your doctor says it urgent. Or it'll take a long time.
Tips & Advices
Emergency care facilities can treat infants and children. Roughly 16 percent of emergency patients are infants and children, so the medical professionals at these facilities typically have strong experience in pediatric emergency care.
The average wait time will depend on the type of emergency care facility.. Wait times typically average less than 20 minutes at an urgent care facility. At a hospital-based emergency care facility that treats life-threatening conditions, wait times can take as long as an hour or more.
Board certification is not required for emergency care facilities. However, the top facilities are often board certified. At hospitals, many emergency care centers require that their physicians be board certified as a qualification for employment. Two boards that handle this type of certification are the American Board of Medical Specialties and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine.
Emergency care facilities include those that offer urgent care, and some urgent care facilities offer certain primary care services. At these facilities, patients are usually evaluated upon arrival, and a determination is made as to whether the problem requires emergency care, urgent care, or primary care.
Some medical tests and scans are performed at emergency care facilities. These facilities may perform select X-rays and blood tests if this is deemed necessary to assist your treatment. However, the range of medical tests and scans offered is much more limited than those offered as part of standard hospital care.
