As a parent of a troubled teen, you may find yourself facing the overwhelming task of having to find help for your son or daughter, but not knowing where to turn. There are parents everywhere who are going through similar experiences with their adolescent children.

There is good help available. 

We've been through it, and would like to share with you what we have learned about the many resources that are available to your family.  



If a program, school or other resource appears on this site, it is not a recommendation.  Conversely, if a program, school or resource is omitted, it does not mean it is not a good program. What is a fine program for one child/family, may not work for another child/family and the opposite is true as well.  

The information contained on this site is provided by parents, not professionals, and is meant as a starting point for parents with struggling children.  We recommend consulting therapists, psychiatrists, and other professionals to guide you in the placement of your child.
