About Us

I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so muchMother Teresa


Angels in the Rough is a family support blog for parents that have children who have gone through or are going to a therapeutic residential program.  It was created by a mom whose daughter had attended therapeutic programs with the hope of enabling communications among this community of parents and the hope of creating a space where lessons learned could be shared in a supportive and respectful way.

Given these goals, Angels in the Rough is a “layman-run” support group and, therefore, does not provide professional advice or counseling.  As such, the views expressed by the individuals participating in the Angels in the Rough blog are those of the individuals themselves, and should be received and evaluated by each participant at his or her own discretion.  All participants are advised to seek independent professional advice.

With this said, a most sincere welcome.  It is not easy for any member of the family to find themselves addressing these issues so we hope that this blog makes your journey a little easier.   May the quote from Mother Teresa above remind us of the strength we have within.
