"From the moment my sister reached out to you, to even still, Confluence helped us through a very difficult, impossible time. Our son has responded to your program and sees a path forward where before he saw only dead ends. He is now hopeful, up beat, resilient, and determined to use the skills he learned at Confluence to work through the daily problems of life with a more mature focus. He still has a long way to go, but he learned so so much over the past 4 months." – Alumni Parent, New Hampshire


"Hey Friends, I've spent the last 70 days at this amazing place called Confluence. I've learned many skills and tools to help me cope with my serious depression and anxiety. I've been sober now for 75 days and have quit smoking cigarettes. Though I will miss this place I am excited for my new adventure in Boulder, Colorado starting a transitional program" – Program Participant, Vermont, from an Instagram Post

I think the impact Confluence has had on him will last a lifetime and it has been life changing." – Alumni Parent, Massachusetts

"From the bottom of my healing heart I would like to thank you for creating a magical space on Gove Hill, a warm and safe place where I began to once again feel at home in my body and on this planet, a community where I was challenged and invited to open my eyes and take up space and enjoy the sunrise. The hope in my heart and my gratitude for life is priceless. I can't thank you enough." – Program Participant, Texas


"We have Confluence to thank for giving us the guidance to understand our son's struggles and how to help. Their program allowed us the opportunity to step away from a relationship in turmoil and understand our role in the issues. It gave our son the chance to be away from stresses and to take time to really understand what he wants from life.  Bill's understanding and insight of young men and their struggles is incredible, he is an excellent counselor. I always felt our son was in good hands and well taken care of while at Confluence." – Alumni Parent, Connecticut


My son was at Confluence for 3 months. It was life saving for him, literally. The Confluence team is positive, supportive and mind healing. As a single Mom, I was becoming fearful and yet frustrated by my son's inability to deal with his life, and the poor choices he was making because of that. Confluence helped my son heal himself. The program is a really great combination of in house time, including peace, safety, and learning. And the outdoor challenges are life changing and fun without being too intense. My son loved the outdoor piece best of all, but had never really done anything like that before!" – Alumni Parent, New Hampshire
