“Heritage approaches the treatment and care of adolescents from the point of view that the most crucial issues for them are safety, relationships, and the development of emotional attachments. Our approach is to build on the positive aspects of supportive relationships and to provide nurture and security together with clinical assistance and structured care. Our successful history has shown that this philosophy of treatment gives troubled teens the skills and attitudes they need to regain control of their lives.” – Jerry Spanos, Founder
