Health Concerns of At-Risk Boys
- Basic needs. The first step of our intensive care program is to provide for a boy’s basic needs. This includes ensuring they have enough food to eat, shelter to keep them warm, and are safe.
- Physical health. Once the basic needs are met, we can begin to care for his physical health. We manage, administer, or reduce medications. We also screen for drugs, alcohol, and any pre-existing conditions. Additionally, our nurses develop and provide a comprehensive treatment plan utilizing established medical providers for routine and specialty appointments as needed.Addiction treatment and management practices will follow, if necessary.
- Wellness and self-care. The final step in our holistic approach to healing is the promotion of wellness and self-care education. We also work to develop the boys’ personal life skills, including relationship building.
