So glad we made that difficult decision.
It was the hardest thing I ever did to drop my daughter off at New Leaf. But I'm so glad we made that difficult decision. I can't believe the young woman my daughter has become and it would never have happened without New Leaf.

An exceptional experience.
New Leaf Academy was our lifeline when our family was in crisis. Our daughter benefited so greatly from all aspects of the program. It was truly an exceptional experience.

Becoming the wonderful, friendly person she had once been.
Thanks to New Leaf Academy, we watched our daughter go from spiraling downward frighteningly, in spite of all the help we'd gotten for her, to becoming the wonderful, friendly, person she had once been. She went from being stuck at pre-teen maturity levels to a healthy, maturing young woman through all the work she did while attending New Leaf. She is now finishing high school and making plans for college as well.

Helped heal our relationship.
The emotional and psychological support provided by New Leaf helped restore my daughter's self-esteem and self-confidence. The program helped heal our relationship and provided me with tools and resources. During parent seminars, I felt respected and appreciated. Throughout our New Leaf journey, we explored negative patterns and behaviors and are completely committed to positive changes and success.

Different from any other place.
The group and family therapy sessions each week has brought us so much closer together and the communication is unbelievable. We thought ourselves to be a loving, close family and didn't believe we needed it, but it has truly shown us things we needed to change.
~Julie, Parent from New York
New Leaf taught my daughter coping and communication skills.
At several stages during my daughter's stay at New Leaf, I found myself wishing I had received the same kind of guidance and support when I was twelve. New Leaf taught my daughter coping and communication skills she will benefit from for the rest of her life.
