The teenage Michael found himself
being shuffled between the homes
of his divorced parents, who too
often put Michael in the middle of
their disputes. When his mother
turned to alcohol for comfort, Michael
started drinking himself and then to
taking his mother’s prescription pain
pills to find a place where he could
escape the realities and anxieties he
felt pressing in on him. Deep down
Michael wanted to cut down or stop
his use of these mood-altering drugs.
But he couldn’t stop without help and
denied he had a problem.

At their wits’ end, unsure of how
to deal with him and not coping
with their own stresses very well,
Michael’s parents turned to the
Ranch program near Rupert.

Michael had been at the Ranch for
only a short time when the staff
realized that he needed more drug
treatment than they could provide.
So the staff worked to move Michael
into IYR’s substance abuse program
at Anchor House in Coeur d’Alene.
There he could receive the focused
treatment and guidance he needed.

“Michael struggled to take
accountability for his actions and
behaviors,” said Mary Christenson,
program director at Anchor House.
“He didn’t think he had an issue
with substance abuse and could quit
anytime he wanted to.”

Children at Hays
connect with story
of victim’s abuse
Matt Pipkin wants to reach out to
children who are suffering from
abuse. That’s why the 27-year-old
Boise resident came to talk with the
children at Hays Shelter Home in
Boise in June.

Pipkin knows about child abuse
because at age 5 he was sexually
abused by a family friend. For nearly
20 years, he kept the abuse a secret.
The secret quietly took over his young
life and made him feel powerless,
worthless and ashamed. To all who
met him, Pipkin seemed like a well-
adjusted, happy-go-lucky kid who
didn’t get in trouble and succeeded in
school. But the secret Pipkin carried    Matt Pipkin, top left, talks with kids at Hays Shelter Home.
