What Families Are Saying
“When you are in crisis as a parent and looking for the right place for your child, you look for reviews and input from other people who have been where you are. My son was there 60 days, and from the first phone call to ask for help, I felt the support. Our questions were answered, even if at 9:00 at night. Never did we doubt he was in the right place.”
"Family First does just that … it places family first. The staff is amazing, diverse, and very caring. What moved me the most about our experience with Family First was the impact that it had on me personally. The counseling sessions, group sessions, and intensive therapy weekends really have had a profound impact on me. When we began the process with Family First, I had no way to expect that it would change me in the ways that it has."
“Family First helped my 17-year-old find himself again. They not only worked with my son but all of us as a family unit. They helped us to calm the chaos and communicate with each other again. I am forever grateful for the dedication, caring and professionalism they had for my son and our family.”
“Family First saved my son’s life. As much as he didn’t want to there, he only had amazing things to say about the entire staff. The tools he acquired for self-awareness and coping have already served him well. It’s a program dedicated to helping boys help themselves, which is really the only road to wellness. I will tell anyone who will listen that this facility is top-notch. I am so grateful.”
“Family First rescued us out of high crisis and absolutely showed us how caring, responsive, expert, and effective they were from the first moment I contacted them after days of research and talking to lots of different treatment centers! I NEVER felt a moment where I wondered if our son was in the right place.”
