Young Adult Treatment

Treatment For Young Adults With Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

Struggling to find a career, a friend group, and or make your way through school is common during this time in your life. it’s easy to start feeling “stuck."

We want to meet you where you’re at. We want to come alongside you to support you. We also want to help you find a career, finish school, build relationships, and start living the life you want to live.

What Age-Specific Care Looks Like

We have dedicated our lives and our organization to helping young adults get the most out of life. This means that every aspect of our program is geared towards young adults and their families. 

Online Options Available

Our Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers the same programming in-person, but all online - ideal for those who live too far from a center, have transportation issues, or health concerns that make in-person treatment challenging.

Our Approach to Young Adult Treatment

The very first thing we do when helping young adults is find out what they care about most. We want to find common ground with them, so we’re both working towards something. For some, maybe it’s finding a career, for others maybe it’s relationships—whatever it may be, we find it, then work towards it.

Support Academics

Academic & Vocational Support

An important challenge for young adults is figuring out your academic or vocational path. Our experienced mentors and staff help you discover your innate abilities and interests. We then support you in mapping out your path and following through on your goals. Our treatment program weaves itself into your life as you build it, only interrupting the parts that weren’t serving you well.

Meeting You Where You’re At

As a young adult, you are at a pivotal time in your life. You can develop healthy habits, a strong work ethic, and an understanding of how to create and sustain positive relationships. You are discovering your strengths and weaknesses both personally and professionally. We love working with this age group at Sandstone Care because there is so much opportunity to create and support change that lasts a lifetime.

Mental Health

Dealing With Mental Health & Behavioral Needs

Many young adults struggling with addiction or drug and alcohol use also have a co-occurring mental health disorder such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Our clinical team excels at assessing and treating these underlying issues as a core part of our program.

Creating a Positive Sober Community

One of the biggest hurdles to sobriety and wellness for young adults is often a lack of peer community that supports them in making this change. Sandstone Care emphasizes building a fun and positive community of peers who are also in recovery, so that you can have a more joyful and connected life.

Positive Friends
Family Involved

Improving Relationships with Family & Friends

Substance use and addiction challenge the bonds of the strongest relationships. It often also builds resentment and causes conflict. Sandstone Care’s supportive counselors and therapists work to help participants reestablish bonds with family members, friends, and other members of their support community.

Our Commitment to You

We can’t change young adults. We can’t change families. But we can give you the motivation, tools, steps, and community so you can begin changing yourself.

Seeing You For Who You Are

First, we want you to know we see you; you are not alone. We want to get to know you and begin building a genuine relationship with you―the real you.

Taking Time to Hear You

We want to understand the details of your situation. In order to help, we listen to your story. We’ll ask questions to understand what you care about.

You Matter Because You Exist

We believe deeply that you have value simply because you exist. And because you have value, you’re worth our time and our attention.

Telling the Truth

We will tell the truth. We believe truth builds trust, so we always start with the truth—and there’s never shame in telling the truth. We won’t just tell you what you want to hear.

Involving Your Family

We will involve your family, and hold them accountable, at every stage of the treatment process. We won't focus exclusively on you.

Doing What's in Your Best Interest

We will always do what's in your best interest. Even if it means sending you to a different organization for help. We won't put our interests before yours.

Parenting is Not Easy

As a parent you are always focused on trying to protect your child from the outside world—but how do you protect them from their own inner turmoil?

We have programs, support groups, and resources specifically for parents to help you understand how to handle these tough situations and work with your child.
