There are many options and easy access to information that selecting the optimal choice of school or program for your child can be a daunting task. Our mission is to identify optimal educational and therapeutic options that meet the individual needs to assist students, struggling teens or young adults overcome challenges and reach their full potential.
Parents Don’t Know Where to Begin.
In times of crisis, parents are often overwhelmed with a barrage of emotions. The confusion and desperation associated with having a struggling teen, young adult or even young child can be extremely trying. Parents may not be aware of the options available, or may not be able to decide on their own what option best meets their situation and needs of their child. Among the questions, we often hear:
- How do we know when treatment is necessary?
- What would be best for our child?
- Is an intervention needed? What exactly is an intervention?
- Should we find a residential program?
- What is a wilderness therapy program? It sounds scary. Is it a real choice?
- Will insurance pay?
