Testimonials

I am so grateful to all of you. I feel like you helped me save my daughter and that she is finally crawling out of the hole she fell in to. In fact, it makes me cry just writing this...but for once they are tears of joy. She has really blossomed and matured in just a couple of short months at PQ.

I am so impressed with what you are doing at PQ.  I knew that I would love the spirit of the program.  The two girls that I sent made more progress than they would have in a traditional wilderness therapy model.  What I understood more by being there was the way that you work as a team and the way that teamwork is evident in the day to day operations of the program and communicated to the students in a way that confirms safety, respect, and acceptance.

I have been thinking about how much PQ has helped me in the short time I was there. Being at Pacific Quest was the most memorable experience I have had in my life so far. Please tell all the staff that worked with me that they have made a difference in my life.

Pacific Quest has made a huge impact in my son’s life. He states that it was difficult, but it was a great experience, and he needed to be there. My wife and I will be forever grateful for the positive impact your program had on my son; it is a huge success.

We had a great reunion… with our daughter - she obviously got a tremendous amount out of your program and we are just thrilled to be communicating again with her!!!  I don’t even know the right words to thank you all for what you did for her. Suffice to say there is work ahead but now I feel we have a functioning human being to work with!!  Thank you again for all you have done for our family.

I want to thank you for all the wonderful work you did with my client and his family.   You connected well with him and were able to really help him begin to look at his issues and address them.   And you’re work with the family was right on.  You maintained a great balance of being empathetic yet not allowing them to slip into ineffective patterns such as responding to the hard issues with humor.

There is no way to put into words how grateful we are for the guidance and counseling you provided to our family this summer.  To simply say thank you feels woefully inadequate, but THANK YOU anyway. Last weekend with our son went better than we could have ever hoped. We didn’t come close to having an incident, because we just spent the whole time together as a family.  He shared more PQ details with us, and was honest about his mix of feelings going into his year at boarding school. We did more than just make it through the weekend, we really enjoyed each other again, and that was a gift. To see this renewed energy in him is amazing.  He talked a lot about food and nutrition and the effect it has on “fueling” his body.  It was wonderful to hear all that he had learned, and to hear him start to guide his little brothers in subtle ways.

Thank you very much for everything you and the Pacific Quest staff did to realize parents’ visitation day.  It was a very well structured and thought-out program. Especially, I found the pre-visit and post-visit parent session resourceful, important and meaningful. My son has transformed himself from an angry self-destructive teen to a mature responsible young man. He attributes this positive change in the way he sees life to what he learned at Pacific Quest. I am forever grateful for everyone that was involved in his treatment. He is now a senior in High School and has been accepted to various Universities. His essay was all about what he learned at PQ.

I’ve gotten so much out of PQ. I’ve learned how to respect myself and others, I know I am worthy and strong and I know being honest is good for me and that I deserve to be treated well by myself and others. I don’t want to lie anymore or play the victim. I’ve figured out what I want and I know how to get what I need to get where I want to be. I know my limits and I know MYSELF; the REAL me. I’ve learned how to care about me and that a lot of people care about me...
