The Importance of an Early Diagnosis
An early and accurate diagnosis greatly enhances each patient’s recovery process. Sibcy House offers an in-depth diagnostic assessment as part of every program to support treatment plans that can offer the best chance for a successful therapeutic outcome.

Patients with mental illness often follow an erratic treatment path involving numerous facilities and varying clinical practices. Without a rigorous diagnosis at the beginning of treatment, patients often continue on a course of clinical episodes with little long-term success.
