Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

One-third of the nation's 25 million teenagers need help from outside the family. When runaways, pregnant teens, drug users, and truants exhaust their parents' resources, professional help is needed. Reaves and Austin describe the choices that these adolescents and their parents face, including alternative schools, counseling, military schools, residential treatment centers, and incarceration. This guide thoroughly handles the maze of available programs and services. The tone is down to earth, candid, and reassuring. A 100-page appendix lists hotlines, referrals, schools, and programs. Highly recommended.
- Linda Beck, Indian Valley P . L . , Telford, Pa.
