Teen Help and US Youth Services

As an organization that helps educate parents on researching residential programs for their struggling teen, Parents’ Universal Resources is proud that since 2001 they have assisted thousands of families through their trying times.

The internet has made it more confusing for most, but in many ways it can also be a tool. It’s about sorting through the cyber-fiction to find the facts.

We are contacted on a regular basis by parents, students and others that have been involved in residential therapy programs to increase our knowledge on what is happening in the field of therapeutic boarding schools. Firsthand experiences are priceless.

My story continues to be a familiar one to parents. Having a good teen that suddenly is someone you don’t recognize — as they start making bad choices, failing in school and hanging with a negative peer group.

I share with parents frequently, learn from my mistakes, gain from my knowledge.

My daughter suffered at the hands of an organization that is good at manipulation in my opinion.

This organization is also good at changing their name when things get bumpy in the press.

Why do people or business change their name?

One article suggests this:

The current name has been fundamentally and irreparably damaged by a scandal, tragic event or crisis.

Red River Academy changed their name to US Youth Services.

Red River Academy (although they will continuously say they’re not connected to WWASP), as Midwest Academy did for a long time, many still question that for a variety of reasons.

We’re not telling parents where to place their children, we’re educating you to do your due diligence before making your decisions. Many will decide because of price-points. Keep in mind, one program at a lesser monthly fee may not be as qualified so it will take your child twice as long to be there — which will add up to going to a quality program at half the time. A youth really shouldn’t be sent away for over a year from their family…. should they?

Trust, but confirm. Always stay skeptical. Contact us for more information.
