Therapeutic Programs for Young Adults
If you are looking into therapeutic intervention programs for troubled young adults, your best bet is to find a program that specializes in their mental health treatment. Moreover, the program you choose must meet their specific needs. Not all youthful men and women are the same, and their issues are vast and cover a vast spectrum of problems.
It seems simple, but parents often end up placing their adult child in the wrong situation. Unfortunately, parents who do not look at their young adult child's specific needs are disappointed and devastated.
Placement into the wrong program will waste time, money, and precious resources.
What are Troubled Young Adults?
The term 'troubled young adults,' similar to that of troubled teens, is a behavioral term that is used to describe a young adult man or woman who - for reasons that include, mental health issues, immaturity, addiction, lack of preparedness for the challenges of adulthood, etc. have failed to live to live independently.
Lacking vision, or any motivation to change the overall quality of their fledgling lifestyle, these troubled young men women are predisposed to negative life-consequences.
Statistics show that troubled young adults are prone to substance abuse and addiction, self-harm, and other self-destructive behaviors.
At the very least, these young men and women become complacent in living a life of or below mediocrity - all things most parents have dedicated their parenting years to helping their child avoid at all costs.
Troubled Young Adults: Failing to Launch
One of the main characteristics of troubled young adults is their seeming inability to fully integrate into adulthood and adapt to their responsibilities.
Consequently, their lack of preparedness for the world has left troubled young adults with another moniker: Failure to Launch.
As its title suggests, failures to launch are young men and women who still live with their mom and dad upon graduating high school.
While the two terms are often used in place of the other, they can also be used in slightly different ways.
While 'failures to launch' often classify as being 'troubled,' they do not necessarily have to have any of the same maladaptive behavioral disorders like that of troubled young adults - such as drug-related, dangerous, or other extreme self-sabotaging behaviors.
There are many failures to launch, for instance, that enjoy the lack of responsibilities of living a fully active, adult lifestyle.
Regardless of whether or not failures to launch have any deep-seated mental health disorders like their closest behavioral relative, troubled young adults, they both share one similarity: most of those young men who fit the two terms classification require therapeutic intervention.
For 'failure to launch,' this form of therapeutic intervention is what the behavioral industry calls transitional or independent living programs.
Transitional living programs are facilities that simulate what's it like to live an independent lifestyle where young adults are taught life skills and necessary applications when living on one's own volition.
However, troubled young adults, on the other hand, would find more appropriate treatment at a residential treatment center that employs psychiatric professionals and other therapeutic counselors who are experts in rehabilitating maladaptive, self-destructive behaviors, such as addiction and self-harm.
That said, few truly cutting-edge facilities provide both modes of treatment, transitional and residential, to troubled young adults who need to develop crucial life skills. Among these types of facilities is our very own, Soulegria (Soulegria).
