Roxie was placed at Portage Place Therapeutic Youth Home after being discharged from a treatment center in Utah at the age of sixteen. She has been in numerous residential facilities and group homes, never successfully completing treatment.
When admitted to the home in May 2014, her prognosis for success based on past treatment efforts was marginal. During her stay at Portage she has received the therapy and nurturing necessary to address her emotional disturbances, resulting in obtaining her GED and CNA Certification. She now works part-time at a local assisted living facility.
Through her tenacity, perseverance, and willingness to actively engage in therapy, addressing her maladaptive behaviors, she is schedule to be discharged in mid April. The progress and achievements she has obtained while in placement, give us every reason to believe that she will be a productive, contributing, and healthy member of society. Good luck in your future endeavors young lady. We are all very proud of you, your growth, and accomplishments.
