Best Choice Admissions is a free service dedicated to helping families connect with resources and programs for troubled teenagers. We understand that it can be difficult knowing which school or program is most appropriate for your teen.  You don’t have to to visit them all, but we do!

Call me 24/7 at (888) 940-6278 or fill in the confidential inquiry form below:

Your information will be kept confidential and will only be shared with a program if you are interested in it. You will not get dozens of calls from dozens of programs. We will work with you step-by-step, not just hand your information off. Your information will not be shared with or sold to any other entity.

The Five Points that We are Required to Answer by Federal Law:

(1) HOW DO WE SELECT PROGRAMS TO REPRESENT?
ANSWER: We connect with an ever widening range of programs and schools selected based on the breadth of their program, longevity, location, reviews, facility, and the expertise of their personnel.

(2) HOW ARE WE REMUNERATED FOR OUR SERVICES?
ANSWER: We are a contracted agent of institutions that allow us to represent them. We receive a flat fee for any enrollment that is the result of our assistance. We are never paid other kickbacks nor are paid according to the level of the services rendered by the institution to the individual, other than the one-time flat fee.

(3) HOW DO WE CHOOSE WHICH INSTITUTIONS TO OFFER AS OPTIONS?
ANSWER: We never recommend or “refer” an individual to any specific program. We offer several that we deem are the best options from among the organizations that we represent, and those options are based on the family’s financial ability and the level of services that may be required for the child. We do recommend that the parent seek licensed medical, psychological or educational help in making a final determination.

(4) WHAT KIND OF AGREEMENT DOES BCN HAVE WITH THESE SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS?
We connect with what we think are the best programs and schools (based on our experience of working in such programs and school in the past) and ask them if they would allow us to include them in our list of options. If so, we enter into a contract with them to become their agent of their admissions department, but we make no promises as the number of individuals we will direct to their organization, nor do we allow any to pay us any more than our flat fee.

(5) WHAT WOULD CAUSE BCN TO NOT REPRESENT A PROGRAM, OR TO HELP ANY INDIVIDUAL), WHO CONTACTS US.
ANSWER: We work with any individual, regardless of their ethnicity or beliefs.  The only individuals who may not be helped by us are those who have no funds to pay any organization we represent, or if any or all of those organizations we represent decline to accept the child, at their own discretion. As for programs and schools, we will represent them as long as we are assured that they are doing a good job, and the students are kept safe. If we ever have credible evidence of inappropriate behavior, or if a school or program is being investigated by authorities for wrongdoing, we will stop representing them for a time or permanently, if the wrongdoing is not corrected.

Disclaimer

NON-REFERRAL/NON-EXPERT DISCLAIMER: Options expressed by Best Choice Admissions Services LLC ("BCAS") and its representatives are not professional referrals nor expert recommendations of a medical, behavioral health, or educational professional. BCAS is not licensed or bonded to provide medical, psychological, or educational advice or recommendations, so we don't. You should consider seeking advice from a licensed professional before making any decision in relation to the placement of any child in a residential program. BCAS assists the admissions departments of schools as a communications contractor and agent of record, from which it also receives compensation for its work. BCAS is indemnified by each organization and has no control over the actions of such organizations or their staff. BCAS is rarely on-campus of each program, so we do not know everything about what goes on, nor should we be held responsible for such information. We visit each campus periodically and get anecdotal feedback about each program from parents, which aids us in providing helpful options to individuals as they search for the program of their own best choice. By Federal law, we are required to mention that we select programs to represent solely based upon their desire for our assistance, and they pay us a flat fee based on each student placed. We receive no kickbacks for the amount of services the student requires, nor their length of stay in the school or program. Of the schools and programs we mention as options, we do not select them or push any particular ones based on their ability to pay us a higher amount than do other schools or programs. For some low-income individuals, we may mention schools that pay us nothing. Should we learn that a school has done anything inappropriate with students, such that it is being investigated by local or state authorities, we will immediately stop offering that school as an option. However, due to confidentiality agreements, we may not be able to express why the school or program is no longer included in our discussion or options list. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) caution that before you enroll a youngster in a private residential treatment program or any institution or service that we mention, be sure to check it out yourself: ask questions; ask for proof or support for claims about staff credentials, program licensing or accreditation, and endorsements; do a site visit; and get all policies and promises in writing.

“NO WARRANTY” LEGAL NOTICE: BCAS does not guarantee recovery or even positive outcomes for any particular individual who attends any program or school we might offer as an option. Recovery and future avoidance of troubling behavior or actions and whatever effects that may have on the individual’s life, their future, their career, their mental or physical health, or their friends and relatives are entirely dependent on each individual student and how they accept and apply the principles they are taught by the program, school or its staff or therapists.
