I am a parent of a child who was in Pathway in Indianapolis. I am also a daily reader of your newspaper.
Pathway saved my son's life. I am very saddened to see how you are portraying Pathway. I am sure you would agree with me on the fact that northern Indiana, like many other places in the world, has a very bad drug problem. How dare you for making Pathway sound like a hell hole for any child to be in.
My son was in Pathway for more than five months, and nothing like what you have put in the paper happened to him or anyone in the program with him. I did pull him out because of my health problem and not being able to do the parent's part of the program. The time in the program did, however, change him in a very positive way.
I fear the articles will stop Pathway from coming to Valparaiso. This would be terrible for many teens and their parents.
