Anasazi Featured in Arizona Republic
Anasazi was featured in the Arizona Republic on September 8th. The article pointed out that for the group, "Life is reduced to the very basics.... The program is based on the Native American concept that life is 'walking,' and that people move forward when they make the right choices and backwards on the wrong ones. But its up to the walkers to make the choices." One parent of a graduate said, "What I like most about the program is that Anasazi doesn't attempt to force change. They just let him change within himself. Anytime you force someone to do something, you will have conflict."
