My stay at Youthcare truly has made a huge impact on my life. They taught me to not take advantage of all the little things in life. They taught me ways to cope with my depression and anxiety. I am so thankful for Youthcare and all they had done for me and my family! Thank you!
I have worked at Youthcare in varying capacities for over 20 years. It has been my privilege to work with some of the most passionate, caring and professional individuals that I have ever encountered. I have also experienced Youthcare from the perspective of a family member when one of my siblings was in treatment here. Many years have passed since he completed treatment and he is a successful, wonderful man who talks frequently about how Youthcare saved his life. His treatment was much focused on his specific needs, as well as healing the entire family. I will be forever grateful to Youthcare, not only for the rewarding career I have been able to pursue, but also for saving my family.
We were very impressed with Youthcare. Our son was suffering from major depression with a history of suicide attempts. He had already been hospitalized multiple times. We were looking for a new approach. Youthcare provided a very comprehensive approach to treatment that was much more intensive and successful than anything we had tried before. The program stabilized his situation and then provided him with tools to help him cope with life going forward. In particular, his self-awareness is much improved and he is able to identify and correct/avoid self-destructive behaviour. He didn't particularly enjoy residential treatment, but even he acknowledges it was the right thing to do and he is proud of what he accomplished. He still has a long ways to go, but Youthcare provided a solid foundation for the future.
Youth Care is a caring and wonderful place – In October our daughter's life had gotten completely out of control. She was running away, struggling with substance abuse and experiencing bipolar symptoms. The police became a part of our lives. I sent her to Youthcare in desperation, to keep her safe and to keep our family safe from her. At YouthCare she was able to stablize. She got clean and sober, she got her medications sorted out, she got tremendous therapy and she stayed on track in school. Youthcare is nurturing and clinically creative. The clinicians and staff went out of their way to help her feel safe. They went out of their way to help us stay connected with her during her four month stay. They helped me with the insurance issues and advocated on my behalf. I can't say enough about how grateful I am for the care our daughter received at Youth Care.
Youth Care was literally a life saver – My son came to Youth Care with complicated self-destructive issues that after 6 years of misdiagnoses and a dozen or so doctors and hospitals, were finally successfully diagnosed and treated at Youthcare. The very individualized intensive and loving care he received from all of the staff, psychologists, and doctors centered Jake on a clear wellness path, kept his academics current and sent him home about 10 months ago. He's now on a successful education track and has become a strong, focused, and responsible young man who is exploring colleges and a career with hope and a future that I never thought was possible. Youthcare and PineRidge literally saved Jake's life.

Satisfied Parent – I was really impressed with the staff and counselors at YouthCare. They cared about my son as an individual and were able to help him with his unique needs. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is experiencing problems with troubled teens.
YCI – Youth Care saved my life. I wouldn't be where I am today if it was not for the life skills I learned while in treatment. You have to be willing to the work while you are in treatment as you have a wonderful support system they can't do the work for you, as it is in your hands what you want to take from your time spent there. I am beyond thankful that my mom made the hard decesison to send me far away to better mylife and get me back on the right track so I can be as happy as I am today.
We love you – Youth Care saved my son's life. I knew he was in trouble but I had no idea the extent of his problems until he was placed in treatment. The day I left my son in treatment was traumatic, I cried the rest of the day but that night I was able to go to bed and know he was safe. We moved forward from that time forward.
It has been over 15 years since his treatment and he has become a wonderful husband and father. Thank you Youth Care we love you.
Youth Care Program – Youth Care was such a positive experience for my daugther and our family. The program was instrumental in providing the help my child was in need of as well as our whole family! There is no doubt that my daughter's experience at Youth Care turned her life around and provided her a solid foundation of skills and tools that will be with her forever. I believe the treatment process is where it can begin. Although we still had our bumps in the road when she returned home, the work she had done while in treatment has transformed her ability to deal more effectivley with herself, others and her life. The staff and therapists were top of the line and treated us like family. My daugher cried when she had to leave the safety of her new found relationships. The kids develop a lifelong bond . They root and express support for the others and keep them in their thoughts. They share so much with one another during there stay there. It is hard enough as a parent to send your child away from home.The weekly support with the therapists were a blessing. Being at Youth Care, there was never a doubt that she was in the best of hands and safe. We had a few unexpected suprises with her journey to Youth Care. It reunited our family and brought my ex-husband and I back together again which was not part of the plan prior to the program.... Miracles happen with the help of people and programs like this. I hope Youth Care will be able to provide services to people for many years to come.... My daugther talks of possibly returning someday on the other end of the spectrum and possibly being a counselor. Wow!
