Pathway Program’s Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Program for Young Adults serves young adults ages 18-26. 18-26 year old age young adults, like teens, have their own unique set of needs that must be addressed to be successful in a drug and alcohol abuse rehab program. Because they are adults in age, many drug and alcohol abuse rehab programs add these young adults into treatment groups for adults, where these young adults are younger than the average age and cannot relate with the experiences of older adults. Our drug and alcohol abuse treatment programs are specialized for young adults in this age group and focused on helping young adults manage the unique set of problems they are faced with when entering a rehab program.
One of the many benefits of our outpatient substance and alcohol abuse treatment and rehab program for young adults is that they are able to learn to be sober and gain new coping skills, while practicing them in their normal daily life. Here’s how it works: participants learn new coping skills in group and individual counseling sessions, these young adults are then able to utilize the peer support group in the application of these newly learned recovery skills. Throughout this process teens and their parents work with our staff to identify and address difficult or problem areas arising from daily life situations.
Our young adult outpatient drug and alcohol treatment abuse program provides 20 hours of group counseling per week, with groups focusing on issues specific to young adults. Here they gain the coping skills they will need to stay clean and sober. Each young adult admitted to this treatment and rehab program will work with our staff to develop an individualized recovery plan, with specific goals to be met prior to discharge. Some of the most important issues addressed in the outpatient substance abuse program will be:
- Dealing with peer pressure
- Identifying negative peer relationships
- Identification of self defeating behaviors
- Building self-esteem
- Establishing a positive peer group
- Learning to have fun without drugs and alcohol
- Repair of trust within parent relationships
- Understanding of addiction and possible long-term outcomes
- Relapse prevention
Outpatient substance abuse program group sessions are four hours per day — Monday through Friday the outpatient drug and alcohol abuse treatment program also includes individual counseling for the young adult, family sessions for parents, 3 young peoples peer support group meetings per week, 2 social events per week and support group meetings for parents.
What makes Pathway Program’s approach unique is our integration of fun into rehab and recovery. We understand young adults need to be social and have fun. We help young adults experience fun without drugs or alcohol through our weekly social events. Throughout their treatment young adults connect with peers their own age in recovery, helping them create a positive support system, with people they can relate with and feel comfortable talking to.
Parents are the backbone of a young adults support system, which is why we provide parent support group meetings. These meetings help parents understand what their son/daughter is going through and how to help them in their treatment.
At Pathway Program, we know that recovery for young adults doesn’t end with drug and alcohol abuse treatment. That’s why we help young adults develop skills and learn specific strategies for resisting relapse after they leave our outpatient drug and alcohol abuse treatment program. Our long-term aftercare helps young adults and teens continue to learn how to apply the solutions they learned in treatment. This long-term recovery support is a critical component for successful recovery.
