Customer Question

Do you have any knowledge as to the ability of The Lawlis Peavey PNP Center to treat Adult Bipolar II ? I have read about the 2 day assessment which they perform and am considering traveling to TX for it. Can you offer any insight? Thank you!

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Unfortunately the PNP center is not considered very reputable among most professionals due to its lack of scientific foundation and lack of transparency in their assessment and treatment protocols. None of their treatment models follow peer reviewed research and they refuse to let other researchers see results of their own peer reviewed research and what they promise as "success." In addition, most of their assessment looks at "heavy metals" being a cause of psychological disorders, which is considered pseudoscientific at best as decades of research has shown this to be a falsehood unless you are one of the very few to have been exposed to overdose of heavy metals (e.g. drinking the mercury from a thermometer, licking lead paint, etc...). So overall I cannot recommend the PNP center as there are too many unknowns with their claims and most of what they say in terms of assessment and treatment appears to be pseudoscientific. If you want an indepth evaluation and treatment, I would recommend going to a major university hospital with a psychiatric wing as these places are usually on the cutting edge in assessment and treatment, and have some of the best staff and professionals in the country.
