Psychologist, Mark Schwartz and his wife Lori Galperin founded The Castlewood Treatment Center in St. Louis, Missouri approximately sixteen (16) years ago. After building slowly, Castlewood hit one of the first private equity jackpots in 2008 when Trinity Hunt Partners, out of Dallas, acquired a majority ownership interest. Shortly thereafter, the problems began.

Woes continue at Alsana aka Castlewood Treatment Center. Apropos of Alsana's initiative, patient abuse continues into summer 2018.

The longer I stayed the more my stories intensified and my weight didn't change nor did my eating disorder behaviors.  I did participate in Mark's sexual group and I was hypnotized by Lori.

Alsana formerly named the Castlewood Treatment Center: PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST MISDIAGNOSIS AND ABUSE From the Citizen Commission on Human Rights.

The most basic level, Level 1 alone, according to the IFS website training brochures, costs $3400.  Level 2 is $2500 and Level 3 is $1500 which comes to a total of $7400 and that doesn’t include additional expenses such as travel, lodging and textbooks.
