Bowen Center Reviews

  • Meals & Nutrition
  • Not to bash the facility because they treated me 18 years ago and I liked it. But my nephew was misdiagnosed, wasnt properly treated and ended up being released without treatment. One week later, he attempted suicide again. Now he is in prison. Mental health in this country is in a sad shape especially if you do not have health care.
