Putting Families Back Together Again

Placing her daughter, Kim, in residential treatment at LifeLine for Youth was one of the most difficult decisions Chris Beazer has ever had to make as a parent. Today, she credits the program’s family-oriented approach with her daughter’s success in overcoming significant challenges with drugs and other destructive behaviors. Chris now serves as the organization’s Community Relations Director.
