Family Member Quotes

“If I had to choose one thing that really makes the difference at Yellowbrick it is the coordinated team effort. Each young adult has a team that talks to each other (really talks to each other) daily and more if in a crisis. They employ evidence-based or informed treatments and the way they use the power of the peers is remarkable.”

“This is the place for young adults who have been unsuccessful or only moderately successful in other treatment programs.  We were at our wit’s end – and so were most of the parents of young adults in this program. While they have three additional “specialty” IOP tracks for substance use, trauma and eating disorders, they really know how to address dual and multiple diagnoses, which is so rare to find. They do not give up on anyone.”

“Yellowbrick saved our son’s life. He will tell you this himself.  While he will continue to struggle due to his many challenges, Yellowbrick enabled him to face his demons and gave him the understanding of himself (and us, too) and the strategies to move forward to becoming an adult.”
