Client Quote

“When I came to Austen Riggs, after 40 psychiatric hospitalizations, I was dying; I was like a piece of furniture. I found the intensive psychotherapy at Austen Riggs painful, difficult, and extraordinary. The therapeutic community gave me the opportunity to see the devastating aspects of my behavior reflected in my peers. I found my best self at Austen Riggs.”
