Emerging Adults

It’s common for young adults to experience difficulty during the transition to early adulthood. This stressful period is usually filled with change and uncertainty as emerging adults move away from home, leave their social support system, and gain financial independence.

Many of our young adult residents face anxiety, depression, or substance use problems. We help them learn new coping skills and develop greater confidence in their ability to embrace and enjoy adulthood.

We work with emerging adults experiencing difficulties as they:

  • Transition to college
  • Start a career or maintain a job
  • Assert their independence
  • Navigate relationships
  • Deal with co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders
