In light of the continuing situation surrounding the spread of Coronavirus, we wanted to update you on our protocols for office and therapy sessions.
We are no longer offering in-office evaluations, medication management or therapy sessions. All services from all providers are being offered via telemedicine. We use a HIPPA compliant video platform called Doxy.me. This platform can be accessed on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Instructions to download this platform on your device are outlined below. If you have previously scheduled an in-office appointment, your appointment has been changed to a telemedicine appointment.
We will continue monitoring the recommendations from the CDC and will let you know if anything changes.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

What our patients have to say…
Solace is a great program. It is, in my opinion , the best treatment center out there , and for 3 main reasons. 1- If you dont have any money northstar will cover %95 of the total cost. You are only required to pay a $20.00 copay for your prescription. 2- If you are a opiate dependent addict(pain pills,morphine,and heroin) you have the option of doing Ambulatory Detox. That means outpatient detox. This is done throughout the course of 5 days. During those 5 days you are evaluated each day and administered medication according to your daily evaluation. In my case I was given a daily dose of suboxin and I continue to take it. Suboxin is a miracle of science. 3- The final reason I believe this to be one of the best programs out there is the fact that they have group sessions 5 days a week.
I cant stress enough the importance of group therapy especially in early recovery. It helps me to know that other people are going through the same pain I am. If I would have never found solace I would without a doubt be dead and burried.
I want to thank all the staff at the Solace Center but in particular Dr. Chad Collom and Carla Weatherford. Chad recommended that I do the treatment plan of TMS. I started the six-week treatment plan with high trepidations. My fear of undergoing this treatment stemmed from the fact that two of my family members had gone thru Electro Shock treatments in the late 1950s and 1960s. Those treatments were torment for them and I was expecting the same. But TMS is a new and very different experience. Dr. Collom and Carla Weatherford were reassuring and helped me every step of the way.
You have two wonderful people at Solace in both Chad and Carla. Thank goodness for their talent and recommending me for this full treatment plan. You have the greatest staff. I have also been able to eliminate and reduce many of my medications. Sincerely and with highest gratitude to both Dr. Collom and Carla Weatherford.
In his research, my husband found Solace Counseling. He begged me to meet with the TMS Treatment Coordinator, Carla Weatherford, at their Dallas location just to hear what she had to say. She explained how TMS Therapy could help me and answered our questions about how Solace was different from the other facility. There was never any pressure to sign up and we left with a book written by a lady who went through TMS Therapy before it was approved by insurance companies as well as other helpful information.
