Do-Over or Time Out?

            We watch them leave Grad Camp and wonder what they will do with their new-found skills. Sometimes parents take a minute to send an email or leave a post on Facebook to update us on their student’s progress.

            Here’s a message we received from Mike C. about his son, Jordan:

            “Jor is doing well, finishing up his junior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He’s an honor student and intends to graduate next year and further his education at USC. He has his sites on a law degree and MBA at the same time. He doesn’t want to be a lawyer, but rather an agent in the entertainment industry. He’s clean, sober, and learned at RCA that ‘Red Sky Cobra’ could do anything he put his mind to and followed that with effort. Thank you, Doc Dan and the RCA staff, for taking a chance on a very troubled kid. Without you, I don’t know what would have happened to my son.”

            When we contacted Mike to ask for permission to share his story, he wanted us to add this:

            “I’m so proud of that kid. He’s come a long way from those dark drug and alcohol days. The battle scars from his days on the dark side are fading and his success in developing as a fine human being grows daily. I remember it like it was yesterday – him sitting in jail and me trying desperately to find a program that would take a chance on him. RCA said yes and Doc Dan took a personal interest. I’m proud to be part of the RCA family – RCA saved his life!”
