Intensive Residential Living for Young Adults

The Path to Wellness Starts Here

Our young-adult intensive program requires a 90-day minimum length of stay and offers unique and creative individualized programming for emerging adults, 18-28. Located near the beautiful resort town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, the residential home settings are close to local amenities yet situated in peaceful locations. Resident schedules and groups are based on a range of factors including pace, social awareness, education/vocational interests, and mentoring needs.

Intensive Residential Living for Young Adults

Generally, our young-adult residents have experienced challenges due to clinical needs and past experiences. Many times, they may not have developed the usual coping skills that allow them to be making age-appropriate life choices and decisions. This is why we offer a goal-oriented treatment plan, individually designed to incorporate the varied dimensions of each resident. At Intercept we recognize that for struggling young adults the extra support and attention given to each individual’s needs will ultimately help them thrive.

Together with parents or guardians, we methodically weave in expectations, along with markers to measure progress. The insights and expertise of educational consultants, community clinicians, and previous educators are also integrated into the treatment process. The goal is to help struggling young adults develop independent living skills, a greater sense of purpose, and intellectual abilities. Our mental health programs for young adults provide a safe place for teens to grow and transition into long-term success.

The Benefits of Transitional Living for Young Adults

Transitional living for young adults offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Developing Life Skills: Transitional living provides young adults with the necessary skills to manage their homes and finances, succeed in their careers, and build meaningful relationships.
  • Accountability: Young adults are held accountable for their actions and choices, which helps them develop a sense of responsibility and independence.
  • Developing Social Skills: Living with others in a similar stage of life can provide support, encouragement, and a sense of community.
  • Mental Health Support: Transitional living programs often include counseling and mental health services to help young adults build coping skills, manage stress, and work through personal challenges.
  • Continuing Education: Transitional living programs can provide educational and vocational training opportunities to help young adults build their skills and pursue their career goals.
  • Safe and Structured Environment: Transitional living provides a safe and structured environment for young adults to focus on their personal growth and development.

Overall, transitional living can provide a valuable stepping stone for young adults as they navigate the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Charting the Course: What You Can Expect From Our Residential Treatment Center

Our young adult residents participate in a host of innovative family, group, and individual therapy sessions, along with critical life-skills classes that help them chart the course that successfully transitions them into independent living. From planning and maintaining a personal schedule to decision-making, conflict resolution, and money management, individuals learn to balance these valuable core living competencies while completing their high school diploma, seeking employment, or enrolling in college or workforce training. Learning and then incorporating therapeutic lifestyle choices to set the stage for success is vital for mental and physical wellness.

Professional Assistance for Students and Their Families

Young adults work closely with our team of compassionate professionals to find a balance between physical health and fitness, environment, daily responsibilities, relationships, self-esteem, and values. One of the advantages of our small program size is our ability to quickly develop goals, adapt the structure, and respond to both growth and struggle. Our young-adult residents are also provided with vocational training and employment opportunities or higher-education choices through one of our four local colleges.

Innercept offers additional young-adult support services for every step of their journey. Our Stabilization program provides concentrated support during particularly challenging times, while our Launch programs offer guidance as they take the next steps into living independently.

It’s important during the transitional living phase that young adults are able to cope with daily stressors in an effective fashion.

At Innercept we realize that this is often frustrating for students and families, and we work to provide young adults with therapeutic intervention and tools to grow beyond their disabilities.
