WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

One Best-rehabs.com survey respondent to date, a loved one, gave Ascension mostly positive ratings, rating the facility highest for its connectivity/visitor policy at a perfect five stars, followed by ratings of four stars in family participation and cleanliness. The anonymous loved one rated the facility only two stars for its holistic treatment offerings. They praised Ascension’s “competent staff,” but wrote: “No variety in treatment options.”
