From Julie / Maryland

I'm glad to have found your website. We are struggling with out son and school refusal. He has made it in partial days for the past two weeks but can't get up and to his morning classes. My son is a good kid- defiant at times, but kverall a really good person. No self harm etc.. We live on the east coast and I worry about being so far away from him - if he went to Rogers - I think I saw that was where you sent your son. It sounds like he had a good experience there. How far did you all travel. Also, do you have any connection to the programs you've listed on this site - Baltimore for example.
Thanks so much-
