What Real Patients Are Saying!
“I am extremely pleased to say that there were many staff members who in my opinion, immediately eliminated any and all of concerns I had pertaining to my well-being and general safety.”
“The social worker listened with an open mind whenever issues arose and took steps to alleviate the problems, always giving me the confidence to advocate for myself.”
“The addiction specialist is the best! She talks to my family members when needed and really helps the patients out. She's a hard worker and a caring wonderful woman with a great sense of humor that is much appreciated in a place like this!”
“When I came to Behavioral Health Unit I was suicidal-highly anxious, so depressed and very agitated. But because of the way I was treated and cared for, I left a totally different person and came to the conclusion that there are some nice caring people that at least listen and care about me.”
“During the harshest, most challenging/dramatic turning point in my life, the staff at Northridge Hospital gave me feelings of warmth and confidence and how to persevere, all while I thought I was hopeless.”
“The lovely staff helped me understand myself as well as my situation and how to cope with problems on a day-by-day basis. I humbly thank all of you for helping me understand things better. I Hope to come back someday soon to show all of you that I am a better person today because of all of you.”
