A Word From Our Patients

Patriot Support Male

“The importance of mental health can not be stressed enough. No matter where you grew up, the level of education you earned, branch of service, marriage status, or culture you belong to, asking for help is vital. UBH Denton is the place you want to go. There is no place like It! The team works hard to get all the moving pieces in place so that you can be in a better state of mind and back with family and friends, as smoothly as possible. This program is 14-30 days, based on your needs. Which is not very long, when you realize at the end how much happens during your stay. You will see the doctor individually to get a treatment plan honed out, if needed and your counselors will give you group work as well as individual work.”

“My family and I can never thank you guys at UBH enough for getting our daughter through her darkest times with depression and saving her life. She graduated from high school in 2009, and in 2013 from the University of Arkansas, and is now a graduate student at Texas A&M. These milestones would never have happened without your intervention.”

“I was ready to commit suicide the day I was brought in. The group setting and receiving feedback from my peers was more effective than any treatment I’ve been through in 18 years. UBH, The Groups, and Therapists, saved my life.”

“When I arrived at UBH, I thought no one was capable of helping me. I was wrong! The therapists challenge you to find yourself again and bring the “real you” to light. If you need help and are willing to begin by helping yourself, UBH is the program you need.”

Male, Trauma Program

“After 28 years of service, I felt like I had come to the end of my road. Once I came to UBH, I found my purpose again through excellent counseling, fellow patients, and dedicated staff members. If I hadn’t been able to be cared for in a timely fashion, by UBH, I wouldn’t be alive today.”
