Parent's Message


"Dear Shannon,

We got Chris's letter to his brother today and it rocked me to my soul. You guys have given us back our son, the brilliant young man who got off on the wrong exit in life...but is now back on the right road...I truly don't know what to say. The beautiful thing is that it sounds so authentic,there isn't even the slightest hint of cliché BS that Chris used to be famous for.

Whatever it is you folks are doing down there, don't stop! I don't know what to say as thank you seems totally inadequate. I pray for you all in my evening prayers as you have all chosen a hard profession, although undoubtedly one that is also filled with great joy. That is much like practicing medicine. The more you invest emotionally and intellectually, the more that is returned to you.

Shannon (In Balance Clinical Director), I hope you have a great Christmas. May God bless you and keep you strong and safe so you can invest your talents in to saving young men from carrying one of the heaviest burdens in this life: a drug addiction. ! pray the same for Patrick (In Balance CEO) and Steve (Milieu Manager) and the rest of the staff there. I will share this with my dearest friend Douglas, who has walked with me, indeed carried me most of the time, through these dark times for our family. To see a light at the end of the tunnel is such a joy. I have a hunch that seeing Chris clean and sober will be a big motivator for our other son.

With Warmest Regards,

-In Balance Parent
