We are writing to express, briefly, our most sincere thanks for the gift of hope and life given to our daughter as a result of her stay at Sibcy House last February.
Anna had suffered for 16 years, beginning with a sexual trauma and betrayal by a friend, which she kept hidden from us for 2 years, at the age of 16. She developed a severe eating disorder, which almost killed her and which lasted for most of these years of suffering. During that time, however, her mental health spiraled down dramatically, and by the time she was admitted to Sibcy House, she was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, mood disorder, and the eating disorder, and probably more than that. ~ Read more of Anna’s story, click here.
“We made a lot of mistakes during this time of trouble, all of them classic and well known. We got bad advice, we got good advice, but the best advice was “get him to the Lindner Center.” When Adam’s problems became apparent and, the justice system got involved they treated his issues as a “crime.” Addiction is a brain disease no different than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. You don’t put sick people in jail, you treat their illness. Crime is a manifestation of the disease and caused by the hold addiction has on an individual.” ~ Read more of Betsy and Neil Winget’s story, click here
“In 2012 I discovered Lindner Center of HOPE, specifically their Sibcy House program. An accurate diagnosis, an intensive treatment stay, and a long-term treatment plan that includes a coach, has changed my life. Lindner Center of HOPE is not like any place I have ever been before; it is a safe place to land. A place where I was treated with respect and the staff supported me.”

“Suffering with Anxiety and Panic Disorder, I finally decided that I’d had enough and was determined to find a place that could help me. I researched mental health facilities all over the country. I spent many nights on my knees and in tears asking God to lead me to the right place to get real help. I found Lindner Center of HOPE.”
