Mental health is something that should be prioritized no matter how young or old you are. Our mental health plays a key role in both our mental and physical well-being. Neglecting our mental health can have major ramifications including substance abuse and addiction, major medical complications, and even suicidal thoughts and actions.
At Innercept, we understand the importance of mental health, especially for young adults who may be experiencing new challenges in their life. Our mental health programs for young adults in Idaho offer those between the ages of 18 and 28 a unique and creative way to properly address their mental health struggles in a safe and supportive inpatient environment.
If you or a loved one is between the ages of 18 and 28 and could benefit from professional mental health treatment, keep reading to learn how we can help.
Whether you have previously given mental health treatment a try and it was unsuccessful, or you are seeking treatment for the first time, at Innercept we offer a unique Joint-Comission accredited mental health treatment program specifically designed for treating young adults.
Located in the resort town of Coeur d’Alene in Idaho and with nature as the backdrop, our 90-day minimum stay inpatient program allows us the ability to work with and treat those between the ages of 18 and 28 who may be suffering from even the most complex diagnoses and stubborn symptoms.
Through our evidence-based integral-recovery approach to psychology, we help those in treatment see not just themselves, but also the world around them in a more detailed and effective way by focusing on the following 4 things:
- Foundational values
- Behaviors and perspective
- Social system and environment
- Self and consciousness
Our diverse team of therapists and treatment professionals are specially trained to work with young adults and some of the unique challenges that those between the ages of 18 and 28 face.
Many young adults that struggle mentally developed their mental health condition at a young age. Some, however, may not have been properly diagnosed and, as they are getting older, are learning more about the challenges they face. Others may have previously tried some form of mental help treatment and found that it didn’t work for them.
Regardless of what may bring a young adult to our facility, we are here to help. We treat a wide range of complex issues and mental health conditions including:
- Mood disorders such as bipolar disorder
- Anxiety and panic disorders such as OCD and social anxiety
- Executive functioning issues
- Adoption and attachment issues
- Autism spectrum disorders and/or related diagnoses
- Strained relationships with parents and authority figures

We want to be there to help those in need or our services every step of the way. That’s why, as part of our young adult mental health program we offer:

- Young Adult Launch (Our Transitional Program)
For those that are coming to us from a psychiatric hospital setting, or for those who may need some additional support before they start their treatment program, our young adult stabilization program is designed to help prevent additional hospitalizations as well as help mitigate the severity of certain stressful events.
Offered in a safe and low-stimulus setting, our residents can feel comfortable while also recovering and reflecting on the event or events that led to them needing stabilization, all under the 24-hour monitoring and supervision of our trained and compassionate treatment professionals.
Our Stabilization program consists of three phases:
- Initial Stabilization – Recovery and self-soothing through the use of quiet contemplation, relaxation techniques, reading, and other healthy coping methods
- Problem Identification – Identifying what went wrong and the role they played by putting an emphasis on self-accountability
- Creating a Treatment Plan and Goals – Working with treatment professionals to create a personalized plan as well as set goals for treatment
Our intensive residential program requires a 90-day minimum stay at our Idaho facility. We are located in the resort town of Coeur d’Alene, close to local amenities but far enough way to provide peace and tranquility.
Upon admission, all of our residents will receive a treatment plan and a daily schedule. The treatment plan and accompanying schedule will be created based on a variety of factors including pace, social awareness, education/vocational interests, and mentoring needs.
As part of the treatment plan, our young adult residents will participate in a variety of therapies and treatments including:

Young Adult Launch Program (Our Transitional Program)
Our young adult Launch Program is unique to mental health residential treatment centers. While many treatment facilities offer a transitional or aftercare program, the Innercept Ingage Program takes the concept of a transitional or aftercare program to another level.
In addition to the many resources of previous levels of care, Ingage offers a supportive independent-living model. Our residents are given the freedom to flourish on their own, while giving them full access to any level of support they need when they need it.

- Weekly update calls with the family
- Group therapy and specialty groups
- Vocation support
- Supportive services and progress monitoring while enrolled in a local college or university
- Periodic mentoring on scheduled maintenance, course planning, decision-making, finance, accountability, health and fitness
- 24-hour crisis team
- Supervision of planning and time-management skills
- Mentoring of cooking and sensible nutritional choices, including shopping and menu planning
- Group-living arrangements to encourage relationship skills with roommates, peers and authority figures

The program also provides access to social gatherings and activities including:
- Organized weekly outings such as volunteerism, sporting activities, art projects, and other community events that Ingage residents are encouraged to attend

- Resident-initiated socials on the weekends to encourage building a sense of community and networking skills
Mental Health Programs For Young Adults in Idaho
Young adulthood, specifically between the ages of 18 and 28 is an important time in a person’s life. This is often the time when a young adult will learn the most about themself as they go out on their own in order to start their life’s journey as an adult.
Even for the most mentally strong person, this time in a person’s life can be stressful as they deal with a lot of firsts:
- First job
- First time being independent of their family
- First serious relationship
Trying to juggle all these new events and experiences while also suffering mentally can make even the most basic tasks a challenge. It can also do damage to not just your mental development but your physical development as well and impact your overall health and well-being.
If you feel that you are struggling mentally as you try and navigate this new life that you have formed for yourself, it is important to remember that it is ok to ask for help. Even if you have tried treatment in the past and didn’t feel that it worked for you, as we age and evolve so does our brain and our brain’s ability to accept change.
At Innercept we understand the unique challenges that young adults face. We also know how mental struggles can play an added role in these challenges. That’s why we created our young adult, intensive 90-day inpatient mental health stabilization and treatment program.
