I received a phone call from my son's new probation officer. He informed me that my son will be leaving the county juvenile facility and will be moved to the Krier Juvenile treatment center. He will be there a minimum of 6 months. We spoke at length about the program and the goals of the program. This could actually be a wonderful thing for my son IF he truly has the desire to make something of his life. The center is truly a multifaceted treatment center even though it is a secure facility. While he was in juvie, he earned enough credits to receive a high school diploma. When we had our last conference prior to placement, the staff said he had been working his butt off even during rec. time and weekends to be able to finish the course work. He will still have to go to classes at the center, but he can concentrate on vocational classes. He will be able to earn home visit passes as he makes his levels. They provide many different enrichment programs including equine therapy,storybook, theartre arts, cooking,and sports. We will have family counseling sessions and I will be able to call his therapist at anytime for updates. It sounds very positive, but it IS a facility with barbed wire and guards.
