Family Member Quotes
“Our son got into drugs before he turned 15 and struggled. Eventually, he went through a wilderness program and then a therapeutic boarding school. There, we were introduced to Ruben who was instrumental in transitioning our son to a successful life through college graduation and a job. Likewise, Ruben helped us manage and cope with a son who was failing to launch.”
“Ruben is amazing. His breadth of knowledge and his compassion for both our son and us was and remains today, amazing. We can talk with him virtually any time of the day or night if there is a crisis. Most importantly, our son still uses Ruben as a resource to talk through life issues.”

More About Ruben Jimenez
Ruben Jimenez’s first book, The Road Home, is a guide for parents of kids coming home from a therapeutic treatment program. This is often a stressful time, filled with anxiety, fear, guilt, and a cauldron of other emotions, and The Road Home answers questions and concerns in a no-BS, easy-to-read way. Ruben Jimenez offers personalized coaching based on the material in the book along with topics that will be covered in future books. Ruben also offers Expedition Workshops for parents, kids, and families who need to get away from the stresses and distractions of home life and spend some healing time in the great outdoors.
