Action Parent Testimonials

Action Parent Testimonials: 
“On September 1, 2010 I busted my 14-year old daughter loaded on marijuana. I was told 
to take her to ACTION. I did so and my daughter’s attitude and behavior has since done a 
180 degree turn-a-round. Her grades are getting better as well as her not using. ACTION 
is a great program. And if it weren’t for ACTION there would be plenty more screwed up 
kids out there.” ACTION Parent 
“This program has been a tremendous help in coping with dealing with all the problems 
associated with teens in crisis. It has been very accessible with support. I would have been 
totally lost without it.” ACTION Parent 
“ACTION has helped my family with our crisis. About 9 months ago my seventeen year 
old daughter gave us the devastating news she had been using hard core drugs. We were 
lost and had no clue what to do or where to go. We went to see our doctor for weekly 
drug testing and she recommended visiting ACTION. We began the process and followed 
ACTION’s program, every day, month after month for three months. And continued 
returning to Canyon High every Tuesday as well. This group really works for all families in 
crisis. Keep it alive.” ACTION Parent 
“My reasons for coming to ACTION are my son and daughter got into trouble with alcohol 
driving and were ordered here by the courts. I didn’t expect much, but the ACTION 
group has been a big surprise and has helped my children and myself get the help and 
knowledge we need to get our lives back on track. I highly recommend this group keeps on 
functioning! It has helped and will help many youth and parents alike. There really should 
be many more of these groups, we need them.” ACTION Parent 
“Every meeting I get new tools and support. Every meeting I feel I understand by son 
better. Every meeting I understand my role as a parent better. Every meeting I understand 
my responsibility as a parent better. Every meeting I see other families in the Santa 
Clarita Valley in the same situation as me and I know I am not alone. Every meeting I 
understand me better. Every meeting I hear successful accomplishments.” ACTION Parent 
“ACTION has helped my 17-year old son to kick his drug habit. If it were not for ACTION 
I don’t know where my son would be. Thank God for programs like this to help and 
educate these kids and their families. There are not enough programs out there that are 
non-profit so families that can’t afford other programs can come to ACTION free of 
charge.” ACTION Parent 
“Without ACTION I would not have made it. The help I received from them helped my 
family to stay a family. My son at the age of 13 was doing marijuana and per the school 
started selling too! I have ACTION to thank for all the ways they have helped him. He 
has been clean and sober for 9 months and 1 week. Thank you City of Santa Clarita for 
helping families of Santa Clarita. Thanks for your support of ACTION - IT WORKS!” An 
“ACTION has been extremely helpful place for my child and I. As a single parent I’m 
learning that I’m not done. We all make mistakes and we must learn from them. I feel 
more secure as a person and parent by attending ACTION. I am still not sure how 
ACTION will change our lives, I have only come for 4 weeks. But knowing we have a place 
to come weekly gives me hope. I am learning to pay attention and practice what I have been 
taught. I thank you all so much.” ACTION Parent 
“I do believe that ACTION is an extremely important program to help Santa Clarita 
families raise children that are not only facing negative factors from our society but violent 
influences and understanding life functions. My family was facing difficult times and my 
teenager was really bad. Since we started coming to ACTION my son made a positive 
change and my entire family too! Please continue supporting ACTION! We need it!” 
ACTION Parent 
“My son has been sober 91 days because of the people and counselors involved in the 
program. The IOP program has been awesome in helping my son and our family in dealing 
with the drug problems, making rules and most importantly, helping us enforce the rules. 
We are thankful for this program that every Tuesday evening we come as a family and 
learn how to talk and get along better and my children can open up to their friends and 
other parents who care for them.” ACTION Parent
