“When I visited JRC, I took a tour and I said it’s a fun place, it’s fun. I made the choice that I wanted to go here. I say, if your parent will let you choose it, choose JRC.”
Near the end of his tenure at JRC, David celebrated a full year of passing his behavioral contracts, with no major inappropriate behaviors. He held two jobs in the local community and looks forward to starting community college soon.
“Before I came to JRC, I was having many problems at home and in school. I was on many medications. One thing JRC did that helped me a lot was take me off medication because I was like a walking zombie. JRC helped me get a high school diploma.”
