Costs Not Disclosed
Unfortunately, AToN Center doesn't disclosing any of their treatment costs on their website; however, this isn't uncommon, especially with a facility that offers individualized treatment plans. Although, it would be more helpful to their clients if they would provide some sample pricing so people could make a more informed decision about their journey.
No Gender Specific Programs Available
AToN Center doesn't appear to offer any type of gender specific treatment options. Many people find it more comfortable to open up about their issues with people of their own gender; however, it's possible they do offer this option, but if they do, it's not clearly stated on their website. You will have to contact them for more information if this is something you are interested in.
The Bottom Line
AToN Center appears to be a reputable treatment facility with a wide variety of group and individual support programs. They have something for just about any need. Additionally, they are confident enough about their services that they advertise their success rates which says a lot about their program.
Additionally, we couldn't find many issues or anything that warrants a cause for concern. We don't see any reason you shouldn't consider them as one of your treatment options. However, more transparency about pricing and greater clarity about whether or not they offer any type of gender-specific programs would help potential customers immensely.
