Bradley’s Story

August 10, 2022

Bradley came into custody in 2018 due to his parents abusing drugs around him and his siblings. The state attempted a family preservation treatment plan, but Bradley’s parents did not follow through. Their parental rights were terminated in 2020.

Bradley has had 13 different treatment placements since coming into custody. He and his siblings went to live out of state with family members who planned to adopt him, but his disruptive behaviors, angry outbursts, and physical aggression disrupted the placement. He was later placed into foster care, where his behaviors worsened.

Bradley came to Windwood in 2021, where he is receiving help from therapists to manage his behaviors and ultimately be discharged to a safe, loving home.
