I highly recommend this facility. Justin was great in assisting my loved one in getting the help he needed. Grateful for his compassion and everyone there
My family recently had a crisis getting my sister into alcohol detox. We called 4 different places until we got on the phone with Dan Pearlman with Princeton Detox. Dan was the most compassionate, empathetic person we spoke to by a mile. We are forever grateful - and oh, several months later, my sister is still sober. We can’t thank Dan and Princeton Detox enough!
I was completely satisfied with my experience here. Everyone is very helpful and truly caring. I would recommend this facility to anyone. They helped me through a very rough time every step of the way

Frequently Asked Questions

Bishop Health offers a variety of mental health treatment options tailored to individual needs. This includes Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for conditions like major depressive disorder, Ketamine Infusion Therapy and Intranasal Ketamine (Spravato) for treatment-resistant depression, and traditional therapy methods.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive treatment that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. It’s primarily used to treat major depressive disorder and is typically considered when other treatments haven’t been effective.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy involves administering ketamine, a medication known for its rapid antidepressant effects, intravenously. It’s particularly effective for individuals with treatment-resistant depression or severe depressive episodes.

Spravato therapy involves the use of Spravato, a nasal spray form of esketamine, for treating certain mental health conditions. It’s primarily used for individuals with treatment-resistant depression, which is depression that hasn’t responded to at least two different antidepressant treatments. It’s also approved for adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) who have acute suicidal thoughts or behaviors. The therapy offers a rapid antidepressant effect, often noticeable within hours, making it particularly valuable for urgent care in severe cases. Due to its potential side effects, Spravato is administered under medical supervision in a healthcare setting.

Eligibility for TMS or Ketamine Therapy is determined based on a thorough evaluation by our medical team, considering your mental health history, current condition, and response to previous treatments.

Therapy at Bishop Health is a personalized process that may include individual counseling, group therapy, and other therapeutic activities designed to address specific mental health needs and goals.

The duration of treatment cycles varies. TMS typically involves daily sessions over several weeks, while Ketamine Therapy may consist of multiple sessions spread out over a few weeks. The exact timeline is personalized based on individual responses and needs.

Costs vary depending on the specific treatment plan. We provide detailed cost information during the initial consultation and assist with exploring insurance coverage and payment options.

We accept a variety of insurance plans. Our administrative team will work with you to verify your benefits and provide a clear understanding of what your insurance covers.

Yes, we encourage family involvement as it can benefit the overall recovery journey. The extent of family involvement is determined collaboratively with the client and their therapist.



Starting treatment at Bishop Health begins with an initial consultation, where we assess your needs and discuss appropriate treatment options. You can schedule a consultation by contacting our office.

We offer ongoing support and follow-up services post-treatment to ensure long-term well-being and management of mental health conditions.
