A very grateful grandmother recently left the following review of Canopy Cove on our Google+ page.
We hope the following story will serve as inspiration to seek treatment for others who may be struggling.
“We were at the end of our options with our granddaughter who has been diagnosed as a bulimic, bipolar, borderline personality. She had been Baker Acted 7 times, was abusing drugs, living dangerously, keeping company with undesirable friends, and firmly fixed on a complete self-destructive path. She was about to go to New York and become an escort, and we were terrified that we might never see her again.
After putting her out of the house, we told her we would only help her if she would commit herself to treatment. Our only choice seemed to be a local state hospital where she could get free care.
On a last strand of hope, I called Canopy Cove and couldn’t believe my ears when their program administrator told me that our insurance would pay for 30 days of care in their facility. It was more than we hoped for.
It is a beautiful facility, nestled in a peaceful country setting, and graced with beautiful horses that they use for equine therapy. They certainly delivered on everything they promised. Their highly qualified multi-disciplinary team took on all of my granddaughter’s problems when dozens of professionals before this had basically sent us packing. Since eating disorder is their specialty, they addressed nutrition and her eating disorder as their primary concern, but they also focused on treating the whole person with her entire complex of psychological disorders. Their Psychiatrist skillfully addressed her medications, and that in turn mitigated her “meltdowns” and psychotic episodes.
They administered personal and family therapy, and after one month of on-site care, they were able to secure approval for three weeks of partial non-resident care. Each week we could see the progression in my granddaughter’s attitude and behavior, and needless to say we were thrilled with having found this wonderful place. We know it is up to her now to put all this beautiful help and learning into practice, but for the first time, we have hope that she can have a good life and tap into her many talents and good qualities. The fact is we can’t say enough about Canopy Cove and their staff. They are the best!”
