We are often asked to provide resources for parents struggling with teens with substance abuse issues. While the PTSA cannot make endorsements or referrals, independent educational consultants, including those in the Bay Area who specialize in therapeutic needs including wilderness therapy or emotional growth boarding schools, residential or outpatient interventions and helping families with “at risk” teens are listed at http://www.iecaonline.com.
Additionally, Rosalind Franklin, a former Redwood parent and Certified Professional Life and Parent Coach, specializes in supporting families with children and young adults in therapy, residential or wilderness treatment programs. Working in partnership with educational consultants, programs and therapists, she facilitates parents through the treatment process. Her ongoing Parent Support Groups for Families with Children in Crisis are described at
