  • Cost was affordable. Workers, state funded leading to.inadequate diagnosis and poor treatment. Seems as though no.one gets the medication needed or they are all diagnosed the same. I would not recommend this facility. Wishful thinking would be that the facility in Bettendorf Iowa someday takes state insurance or other payment plans. Too little quality of services in our area.

  • My husband was shot execution style at work 8 years previous to my entering and I did not know I was bi~polar before entering but I had overdosed on narcotics and cocaine and marijuana, I was trying to self medicate since the doctors in Memphis for the previous 8 years did not diagnose bi~polar and did not help me at all and I had tried mental facilities prior to this, with no help. I have been clean for six years.
