Description of Experience: My therapist thought this place would be the magic bullet for my dissociation bc they specialize in it, but Shepherd Pratt trauma unit is a btr than average psych ward, not more. I was unimpressed with the daily groups they ran, mostly by mental health workers, who were lightly trained 20 year olds. The drs were good.

High Focus Centers

Name of Facility: High Focus Centers

Location of Facility (City, State/Province, Country): Cranford, NJ, USA

Number of Stars: 4.5

Description of Experience: High Focus provided me with many many techniques on coping skills and mindfulness practice. I don’t give it 5 stars because the clinicians can range in being really helpful/positive/supportive to being very negative/unsupportive. During my time there I witnessed several clinicians deny their patients arguments and feelings. The MHAs and Van Drivers are often very polite and know how to help kids out. They have school sessions included in their day-to-day treatment schedules. I think there are several situations some of the clinicians are just unprepared for.

Type of Program (inpatient, outpatient, residential, etc.): Partial Day (PHP) & Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
