Who is Homeward Bound?
We are a nation-wide group of specialized therapists who work with families of teens or young adults who: are struggling at home, are in out-of-home treatment, or are soon to complete treatment.
Our success is distinguished by the fact that some of the best residential treatment programs in the country reach out to access our expertise and model for transitioning from treatment to the real world.
We exist to inspire, heal and fortify your family, capitalizing on your strengths and our know-how.
“This program helped us immeasurably. I would recommend it as a requirement to any family with a child coming home. Easing the stress and effort for both me and my daughter—I feel so much more confident. God bless your good work. Thank you to our coach and your organization, we’re honored to have been led to your door.”Nicholas Freedman California
“My husband and I believe we may have had greater results by utilizing this wonderful program for our entire family. I highly recommend calling Homeward Bound before taking another course of action.”Trisha CraftGeorgia
“We are certainly a work in progress as a family, but we have a sense that our prayers have been answered.”Jay & Kim McCarlMaryland
“We are now about four months post treatment. Our son is doing well in school, is making better decisions, and is feeling happier. We too are happier in our relationship with him. We don’t expect a mistake-free future, but we anticipate fewer challenges and more productive ways of dealing with inevitable setbacks. We highly recommend Homeward Bound to you.”Philip & Heather GooldUtah
“My reactivity and my husband’s anger were as much true impediments to family peace as was our son’s drug use. I am profoundly grateful for the work Homeward Bound has done. Problems still exist, but we have vision, confidence, and hope for the first time in a long time, that our relationships with our children will endure the difficult adolescent years and continue into adulthood.”JenniferColorado
“Because of the changes we have all made, the love and humor is back in our family again—best remedy in the world!”Natalie GuilbeaultTaiwan
