Absolutely fantastic, first-class treatment from a top hospital. The house is adjacent to a state park where you can go hiking and get outside exercise as part of your therapy. The staff is superb -- highly educated and trained, and very empathetic. Treatment has stuck, where other attempts did not. Could not recommend this more highly.
