I have nothing but good things to say about Youth Care. From enrollment personal, the staff, doctors, activity coordinator and Therapist! I was apprehensive to send my son away, I knew he needed help I wasn't able to give him. I was also exhausted with all the lying, stealing, drugs, alcohol and police. Youth Care provided a safe place for my son to face his addiction and learn the coping skills to help himself.
