“I feel grateful to have found such a wonderful, caring and knowledgeable treatment center that truly focuses on mental health – without losing sight of that fact that I am a human being and not a diagnosis or problem to be fixed.  At Balance, the environment is an open and safe space to speak truthfully about what brought you here and anything and everything else”
