At Pine River, we recognize the difficulty of being a parent or family in need of immediate support, and then learning of our long wait times for admission. That is why we have begun our waitlist support group for those families who are in need of our intensive live-in program. Families have the opportunity to meet others who are also facing challenges with their teen, while learning about our developmental model of addiction, coping tools, and interventions that are unique to having a child who deals with mental health and/or addiction concerns. It is our hope that this program provides some knowledge for families but more importantly begins to build the connections that admission to Pine River will provide.
