ISLAND VIEW BROCHURE UPDATED
(February 16, 2001) Jared Balmer, Executive Director of Island View, A Residential Treatment Center for Adolescents in Syracuse, Utah, 801-773-0200, was overheard saying they finally replaced their “old, inaccurate, outdated, and tacky brochure” with a new more complete and better looking one. He also announced they have updated their Parent Manual. Either or both can be obtained by contacting Island View directly at the above phone number. I especially recommend the introduction to the Parenting Manual, which is an excellent discussion on the traps facing parents with children in a residential program, and why and how certain parent reactions can undermine success.
