In many years of working with youth, I can honestly say that I have never met a “bad kid.” I have met many troubled boys who needed help. They may have appeared angry and their behavior may have been out of control, but every young person that I have worked with has had goodness inside of him.
Our program provides a place for families to get help for their troubled child when all else has failed. We provide a structured but adventure-filled environment, a loving Christian atmosphere, and expert intervention for behavioral issues and addictions. By God’s grace, we have seen even the most oppositional and troubled boys transform their lives and become young men of character and integrity.
We work hard to make sure that our program offers highly skilled and certified services, especially when it comes to addiction treatment and therapy. We’ve recently been awarded CARF Certification, which is one of the most difficult accreditation services for therapeutic programs. They check everything we do therapeutically and hold us to the highest of standards. Our educational program is accredited by AdvancED, the largest school accreditation service. Also, our addiction treatment side is now accredited through LegitScript. It is an ongoing checking service used by the major search engines to make sure that the addiction treatment services we offer are legitimate.
I am so proud to be a part of a program that puts excellence first, as it helps young people work through their confusion and learn to make positive choices in their lives. Some of my best friends and most amazing people I know were once residents here. I feel honored to have been a part of helping them transform their lives.
