Publisher's Summary

Your struggling teenager is going to a residential or wilderness treatment program. Their addictions, learning disabilities, or emotional/behavioral issues have brought you to a moment of decision. Heartsick, anxious, and exhausted, questions bounce endlessly around your mind. Will this work? Was this really necessary? Will she ever forgive me? Can we handle him at home when the time comes? Dr. Tim Thayne delivers the answers in his groundbreaking book Not by Chance. As an owner/therapist of wilderness and residential programs, Thayne was frustrated when young people made monumental progress, only to return home where things quickly unraveled. His mission became to vastly improve long-term success by crafting and proving a model to coach parents on their power to lead out through full engagement during treatment and management of the transition home.

    "Excellent targeted info"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Not by Chance to be better than the print version?

    I always prefer hearing the author's voice to not.


    What does Tim Thayne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His own enthusiasm and passion for his mission.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're a parent with a teen or young adult that struggles, you've hit a gold mine of info with this audiobook.
