  • You really challenged me to face the past, look it straight in the eyes, feel the emotions that I had suppressed and finally start to work through them in order to move on. I felt so supported and that your team really cared for me. Despite how hard I pushed you away, nobody gave up on me. I can’t thank you enough for that. In fact, one of the most important things I learned is that I am worthy and valuable enough for other people to care about me.

  • It seemed like I couldn’t trust anyone with the stuff that was happening at home, and I was always getting into trouble at school. When I got to Philhaven, I actually liked my counselor, and I started learning how to like myself more, too.

  • We believe there is hope for everyone. It may be difficult to find and it may require help from others to get there, but it is well worth the search. Hope is often at the beginning of meaningful positive change and of a life fully lived.

  • We thought we were bad parents, but when we came here no one made us feel that way. In fact, we felt respected and honored for what we were trying to do.

    Yesterday was our last class. Walking out of there didn’t feel like we were going home to another dead end! We feel that now we have some very powerful and positive tools to get us through our hard times.

    I feel that even the best parents can take so much from this program and use it in a positive manner.

  • I was seventeen… ready to start college, excited to meet new friends. Only, I didn’t seem to fit in with the other students. Things got worse and worse. I didn’t want to go to school, I didn’t want to go home, I didn’t want to live… But, there was hope for me! The caring people at Philhaven helped me so much. My therapist helped me to heal, to grow, to cope. I’m so thankful that Philhaven was there for me.
