Boys’ Unhealthy Sexual Behaviors —
Programs for Boys Ages 12-21

Boys in Indian Oaks Academy’s Unhealthy Sexual Behaviors Programs have been sexually, physically, or emotionally abused.

Some of the boys at Indian Oaks Academy also have lower intellectual functioning (IQs from 55-70) pervasive developmental delays, and/or other special needs. These boys may also struggle with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Effect, Attention Deficit Disorder, Disruptive Behaviors, Impulse Control Disorders, and/or other Brain-Based Disorders.

Boys are diagnosed at admission according to DSM-IV-TR criteria, from which an individualized treatment plan is created to address each youth's level of functioning, special needs, age, and history.

Treatment interventions include sexuality therapy that addresses inappropriate behaviors, boundary issues, sex education, and the resolution of personal victimization issues.

Individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, experiential and brain-based therapy, recreational therapy, psychological assessment, psychiatric and medication monitoring, medical services, and daily living and independent living skills are integral aspects of treatment.
