At Risk Youth

There are many young people today that fall into the category known as “At Risk”. The term is widely used in schools across the country. The at risk youth typically does not do very well in school, and is usually a problem for the teachers and administration. The child is considered to be at risk because of the direction they are heading. Unless the child’s course is altered they will more than likely end up in the legal system or consigned to a life that may be less than their potential. The truly at risk youth may do ok in school but struggling in other areas of their life. In many cases, the at risk youth does not have a lot of parental support and guidance. This is not always the case as there are many parents of at risk youth working diligently to keep their child on track.

At Risk Youth and Substance Abuse

One path that many at risk youth end up on is filled with substance abuse. The youth feeling that he or she has failed, will turn to drugs as a release from the struggles and challenges they face. This actually compounds the problem and creates a new set of issues that must also be dealt with. The at risk youth drug abuser will increase their chances of become entangled in the legal system once they enter the drug world. Many at risk youth turn to selling drugs to support their habit, increasing their odds of encountering serious legal troubles. This not only increases their chances of getting caught, but their chances of facing a more serious charge of a dealer, rather than an end user.

At Risk Youth Boot Camps

Some of the at risk youth will end up at boot camps or boarding schools for at risk youth. These types of placement options have become less popular due to the increase in negative press associated with abuse at some facilities. It seems that many of the at risk youth boot camps are state run. There have even been some deaths at both state run and private at risk youth boot camps. Care should be taken to assure that any potential private placement options are researched thoroughly, to assure that the at risk youth will be safe. At risk youth boot camps can also be licensed under the classification as a Christian Boot Camp. In some states the “Christian Schools” or “Christian at Risk Youth Boot Camps” are less scrutinized and licensing is easier to obtain than similar types of placement.

At Risk Youth Placement Research

When parents are looking for placement outside of the home for an at risk youth, we always encourage the parents to visit the potential placement option. A surprise visit is also a good idea; if the school doesn’t know when the potential parents are coming they will have less opportunity to stage the visit. The parents will have an opportunity to see things like they really are. We are also happy to assist with any placement question a parent might have.
