Young Adult Academic & Vocational Support

When a young adult is in treatment for substance use disorders, addiction, mental health conditions, or co-occurring disorders, they may need help juggling their school work or vocational training as well. We make sure they don’t fall behind while they focus on recovery.

We’re here to help 24/7

Academic and Vocational Support

While at Sandstone Care, our fully dedicated academic adviser will help empower you to rekindle your motivation, develop confidence, set education and career goals, and foster the skills necessary for independent living.

If you are in need of a residential or PHP level of care, you’ll be asked to leave your friends, family, school, and work behind to attend treatment in a recovery-focused environment.

Life, work, and school are hard enough as it is, but with academic and vocational support, you don’t have to worry about falling behind while you try to recover. You’ll be able to fully direct your energy and focus on treatment, regain control, and become a healthier version of yourself.

Young Adult Academic Support & Achievement

Sandstone ensures our young adult clients do not fall behind in school during treatment by requiring participation in academic programs in conjunction with our therapeutic services.

We want to listen to your desires and help you develop primary academic goals. We’ll help you master course material for post-secondary education. Academic achievement is made possible by a disciplined approach to study, attention to individual learning styles, and using evidence-based therapeutic practices to address the issues that may be causing you to struggle academically.

The academic program provides support sessions in order to keep you on track with schooling and progress through the completion of higher education. Alongside you, our academic adviser develops a roadmap to help you achieve your defined goals.

Young Adult Vocational Support & Achievement

Our vocational program was developed in order to allow you to set your own goals of achieving your desired lifestyle, career, or profession. The goals set for you are chosen by you with our support. This method promotes your commitment to following through and achieving these goals.

Alongside you, our vocational adviser then develops a roadmap to give you steps in achieving your set goals.

Benefits of Evidence-Based Therapy

EBTs are scientifically proven therapies that are guided by relevant data. Patient preferences are prioritized, which maximizes their options and adds flexibility to individual treatment plans. Evidence-based therapy is safe and consistent treatment, but most importantly, your recovery is not left up to chance.

Some additional benefits include:

Lasting Results

The American Psychological Association created the policies for EBT using the best research available. Their studies have shown that these therapy treatments work due to the combination of clinical training and science.

Highest Quality Treatment

Our licensed clinical staff is trained in therapy treatments that are proven to be effective. This means they had to learn and follow certain guidelines for how they provide care.

Clinically Effective & Cost Effective

Since these kinds of treatments are scientifically proven to be effective, the chances of relapse are less likely. This means you’ll be able to save more money in the long run.

More Accountability for Therapists

EBT requires specialized training in the different kinds of therapies. Treatment options aren’t based on the therapist’s mood, they are backed by training and scientific results.

The Continuum of Care

Care for wherever you are in your journey.

Access a full range of treatments for mental health and substance use disorders. Whether you need a safe transitional living community, inpatient care, or outpatient therapy, we have a program to help.
