Medical, Mental Health/Drug & Alcohol

Oakview recognizes that adolescence is a unique developmental time that poses both health risks and the opportunity to develop healthy lifestyles for the future. The on-site Registered Nurses collaborate with community health services to ensure the youth receive the best health care possible while in placement. All the youth receive physical exams upon admission and are seen for illness/injury concerns by a family practice physician or specialist as appropriate. Dental exams, restorative work, optical care, and updating immunizations against communicable diseases are all services provided to the youth. All staff members are trained in basic first aid and CPR/AED preparing them for any minor or emergency health situation. The nurse provides ongoing education and training to youth and staff regarding infection control, STD’s, reproductive health, proper nutrition, medication administration, exercise, chronic disease prevention, smoking risks, and many others. Youth safety, well-being, and positive development are the goal of the health care provided by Oakview.

Oakview collaborates with North Point Behavioral Health Services for mental health and drug/alcohol counseling. A therapist is on-site to provide counseling. All youth complete one group and one individual session each week and biweekly family sessions. A substance abuse education group is offered for youth requiring those services. North Point also provides the youth psychological and psychiatric evaluations. The North Point Consulting and Behavioral Health Services is a comprehensive mental health and drug and alcohol center with the goal of serving children, adolescents, and adults.
