Ironwood Maine Testimonials
Lisa & Bob's Parent Testimonial
Where do we begin? 13 months ago my husband and I took a "leap of faith" when we began looking into Ironwood for our 16 year old son. Our son had been very angry, defiant and our home life had become a battle ground. I had been trying to find something that might help him and then I stumbled on Ironwood's web site, after much deliberation and checking we made the phone call that we believe had changed our entire family's life.
The first phone call was one of the hardest yet...my husband and I agreed we needed to proceed.
This program has literally given us our son back, and that happened only with the kindness and caring of the Ironwood staff. When we say staff it was from the people who answer the phones to every single person employed by Ironwood. The love, compassion and tough love is what helped to transform our son. There is not a day that goes by that we don't thank Debora, who had a fabulous way about her as she conducted therapy with our son and also with my husband and I.
The thought of a residential treatment program is frightening for everyone, but once you see Ironwood and their philosophies you will feel much more comfortable making that tough decision. You know that the most difficult decision of your life sending your child away is worth while when your child says "you saved my life."
Thank you EVERYONE at Ironwood for EVERYTHING.
