For more than a decade we have owned and operated inpatient
and outpatient services for struggling teens. We have also
operated a state foster care company with DCFS(Department
of Child and Family Services) and DYC(Department of Youth
Corrections) contracts. More recently we have developed,
owned and operated Turning Point at Granita Park which is
a residential treatment center for troubled youth. This
is a 9-12 month program that costs approximately $50,000
per year. Each month hundreds of parents contact us seeking
help for their son or daughter, however, less than 2% of
families can afford such help.
Two years ago we were contacted by the State of Utah to
clinically oversee a program for one of our local counties.
The purpose of this program was to work with adolescents
and their families to empower the parents and prevent the
adolescent from entering state custody. We adapted the techniques
that we used every day at Turning Point to be implemented
by parents in their own homes. The results have been astounding.
We were pleasantly surprised to discover that teens who
were originally recommended for long term residential treatment,
were able to solve their problems at home a lot quicker
for a fraction of the price.
With the family unit in mind we completely revamped our
entire program and added a 30-day inpatient program followed
by 60-day aftercare plan. This program will empower you
as a parent, while helping your adolescent work through
their behavioral, emotional, and mental health issues.
