A young friend of mine left New LIfe about 2 months ago, and thanks to the staff there, she was able to get her life back on a good track. She has experienced so many difficult situations in her life, she was quick to anger, and never backed down from confrontation. She received some of the best therapy plus coping techniques, and because of this her future looks much brighter. I would recommend New LIfe before any other placement because of the care my young friend received, and the staff who went the extra mile to help her.

I was a patient at NLCTC from 06/2007-06/2008. I was doing horrible things and living with so much pain when I was sent here. It took me quite a while to get acclimated to my surroundings, peers, staff, routine but I can recall having an awesome support system. I know that it wasn't easy being around some of the things I saw, yes there were girls who struggled with harming themselves and screamed through the night from time to time, however they had staff there that were fighting right a long side them trying to help them. I don't know where I would be today had I not been sent there. Today I am married with 4 beautiful children, I completed high school, obtained my medical billing and coding license, I am currently in college for Hospital Administration and have an awesome job in a wonderful hospital as well. I have overcome all my demons and learned from my past all thanks to the counselors, drug program and peer groups at NLCTC. I have very fond memories of my time there and wouldn't change it for the world. Thank you for saving my life.

I just was searching this residential treatment center cause my daughter got sent there through the court system and I was hoping to read better reviews than I have read. i was also hoping to gain some insight about the way the facility works. I will be comming back on this site with real reports on my daughter's treatment there, so all will have a real statement in stead of disgrental young girls with issues reviews.

I was in New Life a couple years ago. I hated it more because I was a trapped animal than because it was bad. While I was there I made friends and foes but all teenage girls do. I hated alot of the staff there but it was only because I couldn't get over myself enough to realize they were helping me. Yeah I made alot of changes there and it would have helped me had I not been so into myself. So yes alot of kids my age hate this place but now that I have grown up I realize it was nice. I was even in 4H I had the daddy rabbit big boi I won second place for handling all because I had great teachers. Sorry reminiscing lol. I know you may hate it at first but if anyone looks past there pride and tries to get help then this is the place for you. =)

Hi,
I am going to be a resident on 1/17/11.
Fingers crossed!
Why may you ask??.....
Because I read ALL the reviews.
Most were good and some were bad.
When I go tomorrow I am only going to listen to the good reviews because they sounded turthful.
The bad ones sounded like they were just mad at themselves.
Just because they stayed there a long time doesn't mean one thing.
And if you agree with them you stupid.
But that is your opinion NOT mine.

New life....well i can say that if you werent crazy when you were sent there you probably will be when you leave, or at least you'll think twice about whatever it was that got you sent there in the first place. Parents, if your sending your kids there, think about it long and hard because there are girls there who are crazy and cut themselves, try to kill themselves with shoe strings and what not. If your kids messing up, doing drugs, running away and such, send them to boot camp New Life is full of crazies, i was there 9 months, didnt help much just drove me nuts trying to fall asleep every night listening to girls screaming in the isolation room and getting a flash light shined in my eyes every five minutes. THINK ABOUT IT!!

New Life was a great experienc. When I was there I always had someone to lean on. i was there for 7 to 8 months. When I firsy fot there I thoughtto my self "what have I gotten my self into?" I was confused lost and everything to go with it. A few months later I was learning to be myself before my problems started.

I visited New Life Children's Center yesterday along with 5 members of my congregation - we received a warm welcome on arrival, briefly met the CEO then the volunteer coordinator along with the development director for New Life took us on tour of the facilities. They talked with enthusiam about the girls, the volunteers, the program, the financial support, and the facilities. We were all impressed with what we saw but what will really stay with us is the time we had with the girls in the Chapel "their sanctuary" where they poured out their hearts in prayer and singing. It was a beautiful experience.

This place is wonderful! I am a Christian counselor there (volunteer.) I have been amazed at their success rate. They have strict rules and excellent rewards. I am a really old retired teacher, fussy. This place is amazing. When we are courtesy CASAs as well as volunteer counselors, we can follow the successes. You would NOT believe where our girls start and what New Life does... new life! The name fits.

I've worked in diffrent treatment facilities in the area. New Life I enjoyed the most, because the other seemed to be all about the money and staff expendable. At New Life the care for the children appeared genuine, and staff was important. In 2002 a freak flood damaged much of the campus. Being forwarned we evacuated and kept the children together, instead of seperating them to diffrent facilities. The desicion wasn't about the money but the childrens care and treatment. Due to family difficulties I had to move and my family and I moved to another state. Quiting was one of the hardest things to do.In my experiences with other treatment centers, if I needed to send my daughter somewhere I would send them to New Life.

New Life Treatment Center was the most meaningful and helpful place that I could have ever experienced! I was the president of 4H club with many different animals, I was one of the older ones in the Treatment Center, I really learned alot, I graduated High School from there, and the teachers worked with me and were fonamonal! New Life Changed my ways and my life, and I thank the staff and all the programs envolved!

Thanks,

New Life is an RTC run through Lutheran Social Services. Located in Canyon Lake, Texas (about an hour from Austin), it is on a beautiful stretch of rural property. The staff is so friendly and caring, and they offer so many encouraging programs for troubled youth.
