Sexual Abuse Therapy Groups for Troubled Teens
By Dustin Garr

Fewer than one-half of struggling teen sexual assault survivors who are prescribed medications to prevent contraction of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) may return for follow-up visits and only about 15 percent of these troubled teens complete the therapy. As many as 10 percent of troubled girls experience sexual assault in their lifetimes. The risk of teen girls contracting HIV after a single exposure is low, but transmission has been reported after sexual assault in many struggling teen girls after the first time they were abused or sexually active. Many struggling teens don’t know how to overcome the problems that they are faced with and many troubled teens need to be placed in the correct environment in order to restore themselves. Zion Educational Services can educate parents of struggling teens, on how to place troubled boys and girls in the correct environment in order to receive the help they need to overcome their struggles with sexual abuse etc. For immediate assistance contact ZES at 866-439-8112, to speak with a child placing specialist to educate you on school program placement for struggling teens in the perfect facility that fits their needs.
National guidelines recommend that physicians consider prescribing a 28-day course of antiviral medications after sexual assault to reduce the risk of contracting HIV, an extension of a practice first used by health care workers exposed to the virus by needle sticks. At Boston and New York University School of Medicine colleagues reviewed the charts of 145 struggling teens between the ages 12 to 22 years who visited one of two pediatric emergency departments in Boston within 72 hours of a sexual assault. During the years of the study 2001 to 2003 both academic medical centers followed protocols directing that medications to prevent HIV be considered on a case-by-case basis following sexual assault and that adolescents prescribed these therapies visit their primary care providers or follow-up clinics for continuing treatment. Of the 145 adolescents, 129 (89 percent) were offered prophylactic (preventive) therapy and 110 (76 percent) agreed to take it. Of the 86 of those 110 who were referred for follow-up treatment at one of the two hospitals in the study, only 37 (38 percent) returned for at least one follow-up visit and 13 (15 percent) completed the full 28 days of prophylactic therapy.
The results highlight the difficulties associated with prescribing such therapies to teen sexual assault survivors, including the challenge of determining which troubled teens who are sexually abused survivors should receive a prescription. “In many cases of struggling teen sexual assault, the risks of HIV transmission cannot be determined,” the authors write.
“Among patients in our study, 21 percent reported having blacked out during the assault, 54 percent were unsure whether ejaculation had occurred and 27 percent were unsure whether a condom had been used.” In addition, many teen sexual assault survivors also have psychiatric conditions that may decrease the likelihood that they will adhere to prophylactic therapy. “We agree with published recommendations that post exposure prophylaxis be offered to adolescent sexual assault survivors for exposures that pose a risk of HIV transmission,” the authors conclude. “Patient education and a comprehensive follow-up system with extensive outreach and case management are necessary to encourage post exposure prophylaxis adherence and return for follow-up care among teen sexual assault survivors.”
Many parents of struggling teens aren’t aware the correct way to restore teens and need a professional to educate them. For parents of struggling boys and girls that need immediate assistance dealing with troubled teens, Zion Educational Services specializes in educating parents about different youth programs for troubled teens such as different types of private boarding schools for troubled teens, boot camps for troubled teens, schools for troubled teens, therapy programs for troubled teens and many other youth facilities for struggling boys and girls. ZES provides help for parents of troubled teens with the information to place your troubled boys and girls in the perfect treatment center that can meet their needs. If you have any questions or concerns contact ZES, (Zion Educational Services) immediately to talk to a child education specialist at 866-439-8112.
