New Perspectives - Aug, 1993 Issue #23 

Services for Troubled Youth and Families

Orem, Utah
Jenni A. Noon, Utilization Review Coordinator

With the slogan, "Saving Lives...One Youth at a Time," Western Youth provides a two to one student-staff ratio and emphasizes placing a child in a residential home family environment where the children learn to live, work and grow within a real setting. Treatment parents are screened, selected and trained "to insure they have sufficient background and practical experience in dealing with troubled youth." They have "20 years of experiences in the field of youth development." "All Western Youth therapists are licensed in their field of expertise and each member of our treatment staff is certified by the state of Utah."

The typical program is from 6 to 9 months in length for both sexes ages 12-18. Their philosophy states that "quality treatment in a natural, warm setting is the most effective way to create stable, positive life-style changes in troubled teens. Building self-esteem through development of values is a major and unique focus of each customized Western Youth treatment program."

Each child's treatment is customized, utilizing general treatment programs including Chemical Dependency, Sexual Dysfunction, Self-Sufficiency Training, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy, Recreational Therapy, AA/NA, Aftercare Planning, and Intensive Monitoring.
