Reflects on a teenager's experience with Covenant House, a shelter and rehabilitation center for homeless youth. Discusses the steps the shelter takes to help youth move towards stabilization. This process of reversal is helped by a predictable schedule, a secure environment, limiting anxiety producers, and limiting the number of demands placed on youth. Discusses drug use and depression.
