What do I Say?
Addressing a child’s sexual behavioral issues is difficult for most parents. But it’s a problem many families face. With the increase of sexual content on the Internet and other forms of media, experts say they have seen a 30% rise in sex related behavioral issues among teen boys.
If your child is acting out sexually, it can create social labeling as well as legal implications. Parents are often unsure how to handle these situations or where to turn for help.
Where Can I Turn?
Oxbow Academy has developed a specialized residential treatment center to help teens and their families cope with these sensitive issues. Oxbow is one of only and handful of programs in the country specifically designed to treat teens with sexual behavior issues.
To fully understand the treatment and healing process, you need to understand the importance of a sex-specific treatment – one where students can address their issues without fear or shame. Our safe environment is the first step in acknowledging and abandoning inappropriate sexual behaviors.
How Do I Know?
With more than ten years experience, Oxbow therapists understand sexual behavioral issues among teens are seldom the primary problem. They are usually symptomatic of other core issues. Our team of experienced professionals will guide parents through the steps of assessment, treatment, and aftercare.
We have worked with hundreds of parents and their sons, helping them develop healthy coping and living skills.
