CLIENT LOVE

Thank you so much for your help getting her there last Dec/January. Adolescent residential treatment has been a Godsend, and it wouldn’t have happened without you. A. is a very fortunate girl. I’m sure the transition will have its own challenges, but she is very healthy and has matured so much - growing into the girl I thought she could be.

- Happy family care client

Our department (Accessible Learning Services) was looking for an overview on addictions, mental health, and strategies for supporting youth in Post Secondary. Susan gave a thoughtful and thorough presentation ensuring plenty of opportunity for discussion.

Her inclusion of current issues, research and personal experiences ensured for an informative and engaging afternoon.
