We created the Treatment Scout website in order to help people navigate through the difficult challenges in finding effective inpatient and residential treatment care for mental illness and substance abuse. We realized that it was critical to help provide a platform for reviews for these care facilities and to point out that whether that review came from (1) someone's personal lived experience at the facility, (2) a family member or loved one's experience or (3) the experience of a referring clinician or healthcare navigator.

Since starting the site, we have also added Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), and Ketamine Treatment for Depression. We are also working on adding Veteran-Specific healthcare.

This does not mean that we favor these treatments over other forms of care. This website does not cover the tens of thousands of effective outpatient treatment teams all across the country.

We have chosen these treatments because they are very specialized and often particularly expensive for a person or their family to have to manage.

Treatment Scout is only a small tool in the toolbox needed to find effective care over a lifetime, but we hope to become a valuable member of the team.

Thank you!
