       The tide is turning and research shows that over 50% of high school students are choosing to abstain from sex.   This is not an easy choice when media, entertainment, and peer boasting would have them believe that "everyone's doing it."  To assist teens in processing their own values regarding sexual involvement, PHD offers Sexual Readiness Counseling to assess how it fits their image of themselves, the potential emotional and physical risks, and the impact of consequences on future goals.

       If a teen chooses to postpone sex, Abstinence Counseling can assist in building refusal skills, learning how to build healthy relationships, and the role of sex in intimacy.
