Having The Wrong Friends Can Stop Young Adults From Becoming Independent

Often, young adults who fail to become independent are being influenced in this behavior by their friends and peers. This can create a negative feedback cycle that is hard to break without help from a professional program like At The Crossroads. Our program specializes in helping young adults in this situation break out of old patterns and embrace an independent future. We are positive our program can make a huge impact on anyone in this situation.
Encouraging Young Adults To Move Towards Independence
1 - Positive support and encouragement - While your son or daughter is staying with us, they won't be surrounded by peers that encourage them to make the wrong choices. Instead, they'll be part of a positive support community dedicated to bringing about long-term change and improvement.
2 - Focus on building skills - Building skills and traits like responsibility, self-reliance, and personal accountability can make a huge difference. We seek to instill these in everyone who stays with us to ensure that they are capable of making substantial changes to their life after returning home.
3 - Therapy - In many cases, there are underlying reasons behind a young adult having failed to become independent. Regardless of the personal reason, it is essential that this is dealt with so that your son or daughter can move forward with their life. Our staff uses a variety of therapeutic techniques to ensure that this happens for every young adult who stays with us.
