The people at CODI are absolutely top-notch. I'm blessed to have had a chance to work closely with them. They always go above and beyond and they truly change the lives of the children and families they work with. They are saving the Valley one family at a time.

They truly live up to their new name of Compassionate Directions! The staff works incredibly hard and advocates for the children they work with. They do everything in their power to help families get the resources they need and are true professionals.

CODI provides an incredible resource to families in Alaska. Both parents and youth are provided with tools and techniques to aide in improved family interactions. We felt supported by staff and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the program. Our family learned to look forward to the time we would spend at CODI because we always left feeling empowered and more connected as a family. We would highly recommend this program to other families who are looking to improve family interactions and communication. CODI staff are awesome!

Amazing program and staff! This program was a blessing for my family. It is a commitment, but IT IS WORTH IT!! We are a very busy sports family that is always on the go. We made this our priority. It helped our family in so many ways. I could write a few page review, but will try and keep it short and simple. My family was struggling with a very defiant teen (she was lashing out, running away, experimenting with substance). We were recommended to attend the "Parenting with Love & Limits" (family skills training program). We signed up and after the initial intake, went twice a week for the length of the course. They do group therapy once a week (they provide dinner) with 5 other Families and once a week was just our family session. The family sessions were an hour. Both group and family sessions had a period of time with everyone then they would separate the kids / adults. It was an eye opener (and relief) to see that we were not the only family that was having struggles with their teen. We were all in the same boat, with similar stories, and similar hope. They opened our eyes to how our teens see/hear us, how we see/hear them and how to fix the communication gap. The teens were taught about substance abuse, effective coping skills and making safe choices. This program taught my family to communicate effectively and create a tighter bond. Heather and Michelle (lead both the group and family sessions) were GREAT, attentive and very genuine about helping our family. They helped us create a family plan that was custom to the issues that we were having. My only regret is that we didn't find the program sooner. Since we graduated from the program things have gotten so much better. I would HIGHLY recommend if your struggling with a teen. There is light at the end of the tunnel! My teens review is as follows "CODI is literally the only program that made me pull my head out of my a**, and stop fighting with you guys (parents)."
