Mountain Valley Treatment Center was featured in the cover article in the October 15, 2017 edition of The New York Times Magazine. The article, “Why Are More American Teenagers Than Ever Suffering From Severe Anxiety?”, was almost a year in the writing, and we thank the author, Benoit Denizet-Lewis, for capturing the essence of Mountain Valley, and the photographer, Sasha Rudensky, for the powerful images that accompanied the piece. By the end of the week, more than 400 readers of the article had responded to the NYT's request to share their own stories of adolescent anxiety.

Later that same day, Mr. Denizet-Lewis was interviewed on NPR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook. Benoit once again talked about the work Mountain Valley does treating adolescents and emerging adults with anxiety and OCD. Joining Benoit on the podcast was another friend of MVTC, Lynn Lyons, author of Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents.
