We Almost Gave Up Getting Help for Our Son... Out of Fear.
We made our decision to seek rehab and residential treatment for our son. It was the hardest thing we’ve ever done. Even with the advice and support of our Family Therapist, Psychologist and Educational Consultant it was so hard to find somewhere we felt comfortable. Then when we found the perfect place, a family member started pointing out all of the negativity about the school she found online. We had already done all of our due diligence to ensure it was a good, safe place, but we began to wonder if we were all wrong.
Parent-Advocacy.org is a volunteer organization of Parents who've had to make the difficult decision of choosing Rehab, Therapy, or Residential Treatment for our Troubled Teens. As difficult as it is to realize that our kids needed professional help, it only got harder as we searched the Internet for a safe and effective program or school.
What Parents are Saying
I just stumbled across your site this morning while researching for a client (I'm a Consultant.) It's refreshing to see somethhing like this. It looks like it could be a good resource for parents and professionals. I will be sending some of my parents to contribute their stories. Great idea!
