Ironwood Maine Testimonials
Gary and Patsy's Parent Testimonial
Our daughter, Meghan, at age 17, got lost in her group of peers. She fell in love, running away from home to be with him.
The local police told us “Get her out of there; she is in an unstable, dangerous situation.”
We were lucky enough to have someone recommend Ironwood to us. When the authorities phoned to say they had Meghan, Patsy picked her up, drove straight to the airport, flew north, and then rented a car driving to Morrill, ME.
The anger Meghan carried was greater than either of our life experiences. No matter how much we loved her she had become someone we didn’t know and could not reach emotionally. Ironwood was able to penetrate her anger and reach her inner core. Ironwood helped Meghan work through her fears and insecurities. We were impressed when she told us that she felt the “entire staff really care about me” (her). That is a testimonial in itself! It is their caring which allowed Meghan to once again find herself.
Today Meghan is a freshman in college and loves where she is in life. We feel blessed that Meghan was given a second chance to work through adolescence. We believe her experience at Ironwood saved her future and possibly her life.
