Nestled in a valley among the beautiful Joshua Trees of the High Desert, Alpha Connection Youth and Family Services provides residential counseling for adolescents in crisis situations. With a capacity for 28 children, Alpha Connection offers intense, individual attention that fosters an atmosphere of relationships. This interaction with staff, residents and other families provides an arena for change and a chance to gain wisdom, support, and encouragement through difficult times. When situations of divorce, death, abuse, social difficulties, academic struggles, adoption issues and unhealthy coping mechanisms (lying, selfishness, manipulation, entitlement, depression, lack of motivation, disrespect for authority, confusion) are present, Alpha Connection offers an answer when removal from the home is necessary. Founded in 1988, the Alpha Connection program has proven successful in the lives of hundreds of teens and their families.
