2006 Agency Statistics
Chris grew up in the Almaden Valley, attending local schools and participating in sports and church. He was doing well in his life when his parents announced that they were going to divorce. Acting out of his anger and pain over the situation, Chris began cutting school and hanging out with others who were experimenting with drugs and alcohol. This eased his pain and allowed him to escape from the reality of his family situation. Both of his parents were dismayed by his risky behavior and knew that even though they were not getting along, they needed to put their focus on Chris' welfare. They sought help from Almaden Valley Counseling Service. Though he was reluctant to attend the sessions at first, through a coordinated effort by his parents and the counselor they were able to make the commitment to attend their weekly sessions. Over time they worked through their changing relationships and both parents were able to express their dedication to Chris. Counseling helped Chris to learn to manage his emotions and focus on making better choices in his life.
