Our Reviews

Ascend healthcare facility offered a very warm and caring home for our son's healing process. They were very attentive to the kids needs and many different therapy options were available.


Caring staff, beautiful surroundings, deeply caring about the teen, wide variety of therapies.From the first moment we made a phone call, Ascend staff held our hand, walked through the process, and ultimately deeply cared not only about our child well being but also about the family. We were very impressed with quality care that we got.


Excellent program for my Grandchild. Strengths:Caring. Weakness:Deep specialized treatment for complex psychiatric issues.


Great people doing great work!

I first started coming to Ascend when I was 17. At first I was skeptical, and I was scared to share and express my feelings. For a short while I was just like what am I even doing here, I'm not even an adult? But after a few sessions I started to ease in and really give group therapy a chance. Once I did that my life changed tremendously. I learned so much about myself and about mental health. I gained so much knowledge, not only about coping mechanisms and therapy stuff, but also just life skills. I met some of the most incredible and caring people here. After a while of coming, the people here really turned into a second family for me. I actually looked forward to ascend after school. The craziest thing though is that, I was actually one of the oldest kids there. There were kids in elementary school there, there was kids in High-school(the older kids usually get there own session together and the younger kids usually got their own session together as well). I met so many people, of all different backgrounds, and I just gained so much by going here. If I could rate this place higher than 5 starts I would, because this place gave me one of the craziest feeling I've ever felt in my life. The people here really worked hard to make this place feel like a safe bubble in Fresno. With some of the best therapist in the county, and the some of the friendliest staff, ascend completely changed my life. And for one of the first times in my life I felt like I mattered and that I belonged. I unfortunately was only able to go for a short while, but even in that short while I gained so much and saw noticeable improvements in myself. Give it a chance, it will change your life for the better. Or at least it did for me

Important steps, needed movement, and caring compassionate visions are creating healthier tomorrows for our teens. Our community is hurting and these courageous mental health providers are answering the call and stepping up to bring help right here to our valley.

Ascend is responsible for my son getting his life back. He has a complex medical history, in addition to a serious opiate addiction. Other programs denied his participation based on his medical concerns. Ascend worked closely with me and should commitment to his recovery at every turn. The clinical staff understood addictions, pain and mental health concerns.The counselors were excellent role models and developed strong bonds with them. I am eternally grateful.


Caring staff, diverse program of educational and therapy options, awesome food. Highly recommend this place. They work with you on addressing your needs, making financial aspects as accommodating as possible and show with every move - that they truly care about teens success in life.


From the first time I called asking for help to the very last session, this team has demonstrated real care and compassion for our family. I'm truly grateful for all the care given to my beautiful daughter. I cannot thank them enough. Healing while not easy is possible and within reach when guided by people like The Ascend's team.

I can't possibly give Ascend Behavior Health enough stars! We have been struggling with our 16 year old for 10 years. Different medications, therapists, psychiatrists, and at-home services. This is the ONLY PLACE where she has come out of her self-inflicted cage. There's peace in our home now. They truly work miracles. I can't thank this group enough, we finally have hope, and more importantly, we feel like we are getting our daughter back!!!

I highly recommend Ascend Healthcare to any family considering treatment for their child. The facility and the staff are top notch. Everyone there has been incredibly supportive, kind and empathetic to the needs of our family. The experience has changed our lives for the better. We are incredibly grateful for the tools and skills our child has gained from the experience.


On all levels, from staff and facility, through academics and activities, to real lasting recovery, this has been a top of the line experience. Whole person-in-context view point that allows for true recovery and healthy transition.


This place has the best staff, program and facility! You can feel the genuine care that this program has for their clients and clients' families as soon as you step through the door. You will not get better service or care anywhere else in the valley.


With the diverse challenges adolescents encounter - it is great to have a facility such as this offering diverse programs to assist them in dealing with these challenges.
