I have been going to the Rockledge COC for a number of years. The staff has always been polite and helpful. The only times that I have witnessed conflict there is when people coming in are ill tempered and combative. If you are genuine in your search for help I would recommend this as a place to start your road to recovery.
Through all my journeys of institutions all over the east coast of the United States almost a decade ago this place was BY FAR THE WORST! Mental healthcare is broken in the United States and more so in Florida. If you are able to go anywhere for outpatient treatment just choose somewhere else. If you need inpatient treatment because your suicidal, homicidal, or psychotic for 72 hours unfortunately this is your only choice in Brevard. I hope you don’t die or kill yourself or anyone else. They could care less what happens to you. If I could give this place negative stars I would because I believe they are part of the problem with the sad state of affairs with mental health in the United States that we have.
Spent 20 minutes on hold, when the receptionist picked up and heard me crying she told me to get a grip and call back when I can make sense.
I wish I could give this place 5 negative stars. Extremely rude! Go anywhere else but here. Its part of the kangaroo court!!!! They get kickbacks from the court n state to "fix" your kid they messed up if you catch my drift Take warning!!! Please don't take your kid here.
It appalls me that this horrific place receives even modestly pleasant reviews. Circles of Care treats you like absolute dirt. I say this from personal experience. I myself have gone there as well as several family and friends. I did not have a choice when going here but that was the law. I do not argue with this because it was what had to be done. However, it is absurd to treat patients there like they are worthless. More then half of the employees there treat you like you are nothing and tell you what little worth you have. How is this supposed to help someone who is struggling with depression? I met a girl there who had been there 3 times. She told me, "They make you want to kill yourself while you're in here that way you don't want to do it when you get out." This is absolutely wrong and this place did not help one bit. Instead, I had to go to Orlando in order to attempt to resolve the psychological distress that I was experiencing. If you have a choice, do not go here and do not send your child here! They are a significant amount of better options in comparison to this disgraceful place. All they want is your pain. It is important to note that you do not feel safe in these conditions. You are surrounded by people who have completely different reasons for being there. Some people tried to hurt themselves, others tried to hurt other people. One person I met was even there for a stupid senior prank. This is not the place you want to go. Stay away! You will be scarred for life.
