Solutions Parenting Support Doubles in Size Because Parents Want Successful Family Unification
As parents are looking to sustain the work their children have in successful out-of-home therapeutic treatment experiences, more and more parents are hiring Solutions Parenting Support to find the tools to achieve a successful transition home. This has meant adding three additional parent coaches to this dynamic team, all who have had extensive experience as therapists in either wilderness therapy or residential treatment programs.
Solutions Parenting Support works with parents who have a child in a wilderness therapy program, in therapeutic boarding school or long-term residential treatment or parents who are transitioning their child home from an adolescent or young adult treatment program. Solutions Parenting Support also focuses on parents who would like preventative support, aiming to change the dynamics of the family system and decrease the possible need for out-of-home treatment.
Solutions Parenting Support continues to provide their coaching services to parents via telehealth in the form of phone and video sessions, which they have been providing from the start of their business 8 years ago.
Jen Murphy, co-owner of Solutions, referenced the increased number of parents who are bringing their children home after a shorter amount of time in out-of-home treatment. “Our business has grown substantially over the years and it’s clear that parents are looking for more guidance and support in being able to successfully transition their children home from treatment programs, both short and long-term therapeutic experiences”.
