What Folks Are Saying

"Being part of this community has given me so many tools and so much support the past 2 + years. I don't know that I could have survived as a parent without it."

“Our son was using drugs, drug dealing and failing school. The group helped me by confronting me about the ways in which I was enabling our son to continue his destructive behavior and they suggested changes I needed to make.”

Changes Alumnus
Father of 15 year-old son

“At the height of my son’s drug abuse and violence, it was becoming clear that one of us would be dead and the other would be in prison. The only question was: who was who?...CHANGES helped me change my behavior in order to help my son.”
