All Kinds of News for January 11, 2017
The ViewPoint Center would like to extend a thank you to all the professionals who have partnered with them in helping create change for patients and their families. Without the support from all of you, The ViewPoint Center would not have had the opportunity to help over 100 patients this past year. Here is what a former patient’s parents had to say about their success at ViewPoint Center:
“Thank you for rescuing our son & our family during such a chaotic time! We have benefited greatly from this experience; our son especially has benefited. We will always remember & appreciate the care you have shown to us and our son. Wishing you all the best!”
Highlights from 2016
- Dr. Jordan Rigby, PhD - In February, Dr. Jordan Rigby came on as the new Director of Assessment. Specializing in Neuropsychology, Jordan has been a great addition to the ViewPoint team! With an extensive background in assessment and testing, Jordan has a reputation for “sweating the details”. He offers a comprehensive approach to the assessment process.
- Programming additions- This year, The ViewPoint Center added a formal Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and music therapy program to their services. Their patients attend two DBT group and Music therapy groups each week. Not only do they see clinical results from these approaches, they also found that patients enjoy the opportunity to try a variety of therapeutic interventions.
- Renovations - In the spring, ViewPoint got an interior facelift. Now with a warm, adolescent-friendly setting, the facility looks and feels inviting. Removing the nursing station and “medical feel” of the interior has provided the patients a comfortable setting to socialize and relax.
The ViewPoint Center is looking forward to helping many more families find happiness and success in 2017.
