We thought we had passed the point that we could reach our daughter. She was within months of turning eighteen and her future was bleak at best with friends pulling her into a world of self destruction. Lava was a Godsend for our family, and for our daughter. Not only did she overcome the substances she was abusing, she got back on track academically. I only wish her friends were so lucky. Ronald V. - Lancaster, PA
