Therapy Insider is a powerful resource for families wanting straightforward answers to today’s problems. We recognize the challenges that exist for parents battling with a child caught in the grip of addiction, a spouse suffering from an emotional setback or a young adult struggling to leave the nest and find their way into the world.

Our goal is to educate Parents and Troubled Teens by providing them access to a news worthy line-up of articles, videos and feeds that offer fresh, real-world perspectives on the problems they are facing.
