When Frank came to Reach For Youth, he was having problems with attendance and truancy, marijuana use, as well as, general problems at home. His mom reported he was being suspended every other week, frequently leaving home and staying out late, cutting classes and displaying disruptive behavior while using vulgar language.
Upon completion of the program, Frank had quit using marijuana and had improved his family relationships. Frank learned how to accept his home situation and through joint sessions with his mother, learned improved communication skills. He now knows how to ask her for help in a productive and safe manner.
