From a Thankful Patient

“Well I graduated from this place back in 2016 when I was 17. I spent my 17th birthday in Excelsior. I went in originally for my declining mental health. My grandmother had to say that I was on drugs, in order for me to get the straight up help I needed. The boy’s I stayed in there with were specifically in there for drugs, but also had mental health issues like me. My mental health issues were more PTSD related and this place was the ONLY treatment center that actually tried to help me, I completed my time at Excelsior, and graduated from High School early because this place helped me so much, seriously life changing.”

Dana R.

“I graduated from EYC in 1997, (yes it’s been that long). I’m forever grateful and will always cherish the good people who helped me SO MUCH when I needed it the most. I probably never would have graduated or lived this long if it hadn’t been for this wonderful school especially for kids like I was. Bill and Sue, I especially will never forget you. Bill took me rafting for the first time and Sue always assured me I was okay. Also Bill, you read me Hinds Feet On High Places and that story has always kept me thinking, loving, and trying. I will never forget you, as long as I live.”

Robbin S.

I am who I am today because of this school and the staff who worked their. I attended this school for 3 years. I especially thank Sara Schumacher who didn’t just work there but gave all her love time and dedication; here I am almost 20 years later and giving thanks to God for everything I went through and the people I met. Thank you Sara and thank you to my beloved Mama for never giving up on me, because today I am a woman who walks with her head high.
