I searched for years to find the right person who could help my teenage son with his emotional, substance abuse and self-confidence issues. Everyone he saw tried to fix the symptoms of his issues without really trying to figure out what were the causes of his pain. Then I was referred to Vince Benevento, owner of Causeway Collaborative. Vince was the first person who ever really saw past my son’s symptoms and treated the underlying issues for my son’s pain. I truly believe Vince and the incredible staff at Causeway Collaborative saved my son’s life. There are a variety of services that Causeway Collaborative offers but they are all focused on assisting young adults on reaching their full potential. Vince and his staff helped my son get accepted to college and then when we realized that college was not the best course of action at this time, Vince and his team put together a formal intervention plan guiding my son’s father and I through every step of the process.
What I am most touched by is that Vince and his staff at CC never gave up on my son. They kept trying new approaches and suggesting new options to guide my son towards accepting the help that he needed. I believe Causeway Collaborative worked because they cared about my son and he knew it. I tried unsuccessfully on my own, and with the help of others over the years, to help my son become an independent, self-confident, and happy young man who could accept himself for who he was instead of struggling with who he thought he should be. I could not be more grateful and in awe of the dedication, professionalism and unwavering support Causeway Collaborative has shown my son and my family.
