Posted by Hannah Cleveland on Tue, Oct 16, 2012

As a parent living in the trenches with a struggling son or daughter you may be thrust into our world.  This likely seems like an alien world which you did not choose to visit.  It is a labyrinth of wilderness therapy programs, residential treatment centers, therapeutic boarding schools, and much more.  Emotions run the gamut.
