Family involvement and teen care

Our goal is to provide the teens with an opportunity to change their lives by helping them acquire new tools, physically, emotionally, intellectually and behaviorally. And to reintroduce them to their families and to society as honest, happier and responsible individuals with goals and desire to live their lives in a healthy way.

We have strived to become a top school. As leaders in the treatment and development of teenagers, we are passionate in our approach to help families reconnect and rekindle their relationships. We work with values essential to every family, respect, love, trust, security and honesty. Our Home-style facilities provide a warm and amiable environment that stimulates the use of these values.
