WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT NORTHWEST PASSAGE

______

“My son is doing outstanding since being home. I have NOTHING negative to report, and am so please with how he has done since returning to our family life. He is even using DBT skills in school to help regulate himself. You have done an excellent job!”

“Thank you, all of you. Thank goodness there are facilities like NWP and people like you who work with these kids that need help. You are all truly wonderful. While we won’t know for some time the final path our son will take, you for sure have made a difference. Thank you!”

“…He is doing awesome! I am so thrilled with how he has done. He is using his skills at home, really enjoys school and has gotten much closer with his dad. He continues to watch what he eats and has remained active. Thank you to all the Passage staff!”

“Our family was nearly destroyed when our son began to suffer from serious depression. While he once had been a fun-loving kid with goals and dreams, we watched, helpless, as he became a shell of himself. Unable, or unwilling, to be a part of his own life, his grades suffered, his behavior changed, and our relationship fell apart. Then he went to Northwest Passage. Through careful treatment and consistent expectations, they helped my son get a handle on his depression. He learned about himself and they helped him remember what I’d known all along – he was worth fighting for.”

“When I first came to Passage, I was a rude and unruly child. I was angry all the time and got the police called on me. It was hard to go through these doors, but I got the help I needed and now life is good. When I first came to Passage, I thought life there would be terrible, but then after a couple of months, I thought, ‘You know what? These people are actually trying to help me.’ So I tried to work with you, and it worked! I’ve learned that having bipolar and ADHD diagnosis is not all bad and it gives me artistic advantages. Now I’m different because I can control my anger….”

“I don’t know if you remember me, as it’s been ten years since I was at Northwest Passage, but I just wanted to say thank you for being a contributing factor in my accomplishments in life, for teaching me what I needed to know. I know if it wasn’t for Northwest Passage, I wouldn’t be where I am, I would probably be in prison somewhere, like most of my family. I am not saying my life hasn’t had its ups and downs, but it seems that the more I think back to my days at Passage, I remember those words of inspiration. Thank you for the difference you have made in my life. I really do appreciate it completely.”
