“It is a pleasure to find such gifted and caring people with whom I can comfortably place the responsibility of my child’s needs – mentally, physically and spiritually.”

“I am writing on behalf of our family to express the appreciation for all the wonderful work Yellowstone has done. There are no words to express all the caring, guidance, love, and professional work and dedication that your staff has shown.”

“Admitting our son to Yellowstone was the hardest thing we’ve ever done. Our son being at Yellowstone allowed us to heal, and our son to receive the intensive therapy, structure and safety he needed.”
