Referral Relations Representative
Just three months after its first girl admission, Eckerd Youth
Alternatives' E-Sun-Alee outdoor therapeutic program in Deer Lodge,
TN has opened a second girls group. According to Candace Bynum,
referral relations representative, parents, psychologists and
educational consultants are responding to Eckerd's unique, non-punitive
behavior management approach without points, demerits or levels.
Located between Nashville and Knoxville in the rolling hills
of the Cumberland Plateau, Eckerd Youth Alternatives' Deer Lodge
program provides fully accredited education and residential treatment
for privately referred boys and girls ages 10 through 18.
The name E-Sun-Alee means "their tomorrow" in the Muskokee
Indian language. Founded in 1968, Eckerd Youth Alternatives has
helped thousands of children leave their troubled pasts behind
and open the door to brighter futures.
