“As our son grew older it became apparent that staying home was not going to work. We didn’t know where to turn for answers as all the therapy and interventions we did were not what he needed. At 18 years old, our son was unable to remain at home or in his school due to serious emotional issues that were not sufficiently addressed locally with medication and twice weekly psychotherapy.
We needed to find a program that would allow him finish high school while at the same time address his serious mental health issues. Through Choose Mental Health, we found an amazing program that fits our son’s needs.
Our son has made steady progress from his weekly one-on-one therapy and around-the-clock protocols and support. Incredibly he has completed high school and secured employment. At the same time he has been participating in a group based treatment program that includes psychotherapy, group sessions to work on social skills and individual life skills mentoring to help him launch.
We have been in weekly family therapy as well as involved in weekly treatment team meetings. As a parent I was concerned about finding a treatment program that would meet his needs without making things worse. Like others, I had heard stories about abuse that have occurred in these kinds of programs and it caused great concern.
Now that our son is there, not once have I had any concerns about this. From the moment we made contact with this program I have felt comfortable. The staff have been supportive and communicative. I have complete confidence in this program and have felt safe placing my son there. Equally important, my son has felt safe and supported while doing very difficult soul searching and changing. Our son needed a level of care that couldn’t be created living at home and we feel lucky to have found that place. I can recommend this program without any reservations.”
