School-Based Case Management
Hope in the Fray
Caring for Children Affected by Substance Abuse
Research shows that 25% of kids grow up in households where substance abuse is present. For the children who live in environments like this, the negative effects of unpredictable behavior, conflict, and broken promises are often complicated and substantial. These children are also more likely to experience:
- Poor performance in school
- Emotional and behavioral problems
- Low self-esteem
- A higher risk of physical, verbal, or sexual abuse
- A higher risk of developing anxiety or depression
- Earlier onset of experimentation with drugs or alcohol
- A greater chance of becoming addicted once they start using drugs or alcohol
At Valley, we understand how to care for kids. Our passion is to collaborate with children and support-systems alike to provide the professional services and care they need.
What is School-Based Case Management?
Monitoring Children in Their Educational Environments
For some children, school is their safest environment. They are surrounded by peers, teachers, administrators, and faculty that genuinely care about their wellness, progress and future. As part of our “wrap-around” care services we offer school-based case management to monitor and care for children who suffer any mental health concerns. Our trained Case Managers monitor children academically, emotionally, mentally, and relationally within their school environments.
Our Case Managers seek to inform teachers, administration, and faculty about individual cases and seek to get everyone on the same page so there can be understanding and encouragement from all involved. For the children of addicted parents, no matter what their age, wellness often begins with regaining self-confidence and learning how to build trusting relationships with adults and peers.
