Kristen and Rylan – Parents
My family and I had a wonderful experience with adolescent Growth. My son was on a terrible and dangerous path that as a parent I was unable to detour. I happen to live in an area where there is very little mental health or psychiatric services available. I was referred to Adolescent Growth as it was in my insurance network. I was put in touch with Dr. Joi Lewis and with about 24 to 48 hours my insurance had agreed to his treatment and I had my son on a plane the next day. I had no idea of what was needed from me and Dr. Joi and her staff held my hand every step of the way. This was such a learning growing experience for my son, my self and our entire family. It was very difficult as he was so far away and understanding how and why they do the things they do within their very structured environment was at some times difficult for me but in the end I completely understood how and why. Of course my son had complaints and issues when he first arrived but there were reasons for the things they were doing and if it was a legitimate complaint or concern it was always addressed. I am so glad I didn’t fight there process and trusted them because I obviously didn’t know what was in his best interest for my son or we would have probably not been in that position in the first place. Towards the later part of my child’s stay, he was actually doing the work he needed to do to get well and quit complaining about the things that weren’t important. I put my faith and trust in Dr. Joi and her wonderful staff and the son they returned to me was they boy that I haven’t seen for many years. My son was a great success. He tiered up the the 5th tier and graduated a couple of days early. It was what saved his life and healed my family and I owe them more than I will ever be able to repay. I recommend this facility to any parent that has a behavioral and substance abuse issue. AGAIN, THANK YOU DR. JOI, JUSTIN AND THE REST OF YOUR AMAZING STAFF! WE LOVE AND APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
