I'm very thankful for the staff at Youth Care. Our son's therapist and his other counselors were fantastic. Everyone we dealt with was caring and very professional. They challenged our son just enough and knew when and how to encourage him and to push him just the right amount. If it wasn't for Youth Care, the chances are great that our son would have overdosed or be in jail by now.
