I lived at AYC for 13 months in 2008, Jimmy is a wonderful man and a great counselor. He is certainly no pedophile and I cant understand why someone would make that claim. Anyone who lived at this program and wanted to change their life was able to do so. AYC is all about honesty personal responsibility and fellowship. I owe so much to Jimmy and the people at this house. I met my best friends there who are all like brothers to me. I was able to graduate highschool here and to learn for the first time who I was and that I could live a sober life and be a productive person and have real relationships with my loved ones. I had lived at four other youth programs before AYC , but AYC was the only place that was REAL. Jimmy is a great counselor and a good man. Thank you AYC.

Control is the 1st & only step at AYC. Through savvy manipulation (behind an aw shucks I love your boy front) AYC attempts to strip young men of their individuality. Most AYC clients are guilty of nothing more than normal risky teenage behavior. That and being sons of privilege. The focus is on control because that's how the money is made.

I was a previous patient here. The treatment is of very low quality. The staff and counselors are sub-par and mentally abusive. They threaten to not let you talk to your parents, and manipulate your parents and you into saying what they want you to say. The main counselor jimmy, kisses the children, touches them inappropriately, and is legally blind. He is not professional, and he does not practice the 12 step principles. If you are not familiar with the 12 step principles, you are supposed to give up control, and that's all he tries to do is control your life and pretend he is god. He goes off on you for no apparent reason, except if you threaten his power. He threatens in order to get what he wants. We had 2-3 week spans where we wouldn't go to meetings. This place is very unprofessional. There are many bugs living in the house, and it is disgusting. They made us clean the entire house everynight, it was ridiculous. Do not send you child here, it is the worst place you could send your kid. Don't be fooled by Jimmy Martinez, he is a pedophile and will touch your children.

The person that wrote the previous review has zero credibility. She never visited the facility or met the staff, and was manipulated by the patient receiving treatment. She violated a court order by facilitating his departure from this facility as a minor before his treatment was complete. Recovery isn't an easy process, I felt our son received great care and guidance from staff that had dealt with similar issues while they were growing up. He received prompt medical care as needed and saw a psychiatrist monthly. They have a program that works, both parents need to be onboard together for it to be effective. The person that wrote the previous review was never onboard with our son's treatment program.
