Are you struggling with a good teen making bad choices?
We help you find quality and affordable therapeutic boarding schools.
Who we are:
Since 2001 we have educated families that are researching for the right residential treatment for their troubled teen. As parent advocates, we have been down this road with our own teen that needed placement and understand the importance this major emotional and financial decision.
Sue Scheff, the founder of P.U.R.E.™, recognized this need after her daughter was harmed in a teen-help program and her family was duped by misleading and false information online. After winning a lawsuit against these programs, she understands how parents can fall prey when they are desperate to find help. This is why she continues to advocate for parents with education, resources and wisdom. Her motto is, learn from her mistakes and gain from knowledge.
