It is critical to a student’s success that her family grows with her through the process of healing. Parents are part of the treatment process and are actively engaged in the program experience. Our clinical team works closely with students and their families to create opportunities for direct and open communication, healing and growth through weekly scheduled phone/Skype calls.
