Therapeutic Approach

At PLP we know that the greatest asset in a teen’s life is the family. Families may be split by divorce or re-marriage, or in a single-parent dynamic. In any case we are very different from other schools because PLP offers more mental health services, individualized attention, and family involvement than any other program.

Family Testimonials

Vickie P. Mother

"Our daughter has come so far from a year ago and we are so proud of her. We still have our ups and downs but she is able to handle it so much better than before Pacific Life Program. We are so thankful we got her the help we did because we believe the window of opportunity would have closed. We are so thankful that staff never gave up on us. She is doing great in school and finally getting a sense of what family really means."

Sherri S. Mother

"Thank you to everyone at PLP who make such a difference. You send your kid here because you were not equipped to help them. We will be forever grateful for our son's therapist, I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. The tools, the lessons, experiences, and relationships she helped us develop will be used daily, and are forever ingrained in our lives. Trust the program-- it works, it's true. Be patient, as hard as that is. It's worth it."

Is Pacific Life Program what your teen needs?
