Default Asylums for Victims of the Supernatural (or Perpetrators)

If you're fighting the occult and supernatural in secret, you have a problem if you rescue someone traumatized by the supernatural or if the perpetrators turn out to be human, in which case you might not want to execute them out of hand.

Assuming that the PCs will not be cartoonishly callous death squad Murder Hobo Monster Hunters, there will be any number of survivors who both Know Too Much and require expert psychological care with people who won't either dismiss them as being delusional or decide to believe them and arrest the PCs for vigilante activity.

Fortunately, the PCs have a long-established and extremely influential Patron for this sort of thing. Indeed, J.R. Kessler is sure to have solved this problem to his satisfaction at some point between 1990 or so and the modern day.

So, if Kessler has contacts with mental health professionals and perhaps even finances an entire charitable institution which deals with the worst cases of supernaturally traumatized people, both victims and perpetrators, does anyone have thoughts on that?

Any suggestions for real-world institutions, hospitals, asylums or psychology departments in academic institutions where Kessler might have spent years establishing influence, buying support and installing his own people?

It would be cool if there was any such place near Galveston or New Orleans, probably in addition to an even less-regulated private facility established on St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
