Help Your Young Adult Find Independence

Is your child a young adult who is seemingly unable to move toward greater independence and self-realization?

Sometimes called failure to launch syndrome, these young adults may need treatment to move forward past contributing factors, such as drug addiction and underlying mental illness.

Signs Your Child Needs Treatment

Your teen or young adult may benefit from professional guidance if you have noticed them experiencing:

  • Social isolation
  • Decrease performance in school or work
  • Drastic mood changes
  • Decreased interest in hobbies
  • Personality changes
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Substance misuse

Don’t wait for things to get worse for your child. Getting help early for mental health and substance use concerns can make a real difference, making the recovery journey smoother and more effective.

Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

Evidence-based therapies (EBTs) use treatment modalities that have been proven effective through scientific research. They include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and more.

These modalities provide real, life-changing results that can help you get your life back on track.

Some additional benefits include:

Lasting Results

The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBTs using the best research available. Studies have shown that these therapy treatments lead to longer-lasting results.

Cost Effective

Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be more effective, the chances of relapse are less likely, which means less money spent on future treatments.

More Accountability for Therapists

EBTs require specialized training in the different kinds of therapies, which means you are guaranteed qualified, verified therapists are in charge of your care.

Clinically Effective

EBTs are safe and proven treatments, so you can feel confident that your recovery is not left up to chance. Your mental health assessments and preferences will determine which EBTs are used in their treatment plans.
