Founder’s Mission

Our Philosophy

In 2002, Visions’ Founders Chris and Amanda Shumow began their mission of creating an adolescent program that provided cutting edge mental health, substance abuse and family treatment.  Since its inception, they have advocated for the family in its entirety. This founder driven center has set the standard for adolescent treatment amongst industry professionals with its clinical acumen and attention to specialized services.

Chris and Amanda acknowledged the success of Visions would correlate to the strength and unity of their clinical team. They place great value on collaborating with service providers who share the same passion for adolescents and their families.  Since opening, Visions has maintained original founding clinicians while adding several dynamic team members with continued program growth.

As proud parents of four beautiful children, Chris and Amanda understand the importance of family involvement and support throughout the treatment process.  They know from personal experience that any individual going through the recovery process must do it with laughter and fun in order to sustain a new healthy lifestyle.

Year after year, Chris and Amanda push Visions to maintain a creative clinical culture of excellence.
