Educational / Therapeutic Placements

How do you choose?

When your family is faced with tough decisions on education and therapy programs, there’s a mountain of options from which to choose and relatively small number of therapists that specialize in guiding you through the decision process.

The mountainous task involves such hard questions as: Does your troubled teen or young adult need the back-to-the basics approach of a short-term wilderness program? Would he or she be better suited for an emotional-growth and therapeutic boarding school? What about a combination of educational services?

Contact Dr. Hyken today to learn more about educational and therapeutic placements.
