Have you considered an independent living program? There is a phenomenal independent living program for young adults in St George, UT, known as At The Crossroads (ATC). ATC is highly recommended by Educational Consultants and therapists from Wyoming. We encourage you to find out more.

At The Crossroads has helped hundreds and families of struggling young adults find solutions to the growing problem associated with young adults who are stuck, and unable or unwilling to transition into adulthood. According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, there are 3 million young adults in America diagnosed with serious mental health issues and most of which are struggling to find a pathway into the adult world.

NAMI published an article titled, "On The Move: Helping Young Adults with Serious Mental Health needs Transition into Adulthood," stating, in part, "Youth and young adults who have been diagnosed with a Serious Emotional Disturbance or Serious Mental Illness (SED/SMI) such as major depressive or anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, schizophrenia, or conduct disorder face a number of risks and challenges as they struggle to become adults." (for more on this article, click here). The facts are that some young men and young women need professional help to complete the shift from adolescence to adulthood.

Job Training and Academic Support For Young Adults From Wyoming

At The Crossroads isn't just an independent living facility dedicated to helping troubled young adults from Wyoming. We're are known for providing the best job training and academic support for young adults in need of therapeutic intervention. We strongly believe that getting the right training & and education to secure a job will push a young adult forward with their life. Successful independence is directly related to successful employment, and employment is predicated on training and education. Independence is always attached to a person's ability to provide for themselves, and getting the right support is the best way to make this happen.

Students finishing school and learning new career pathOur job training programs provide young men and women a new perspective and a new start toward a successful and fulfilling future. We provide a very effective approach by providing specialized job coaching. Effectual employment training and practical applications of workplace "best practices" will be key components to their success. Crossroads’ students attend school and go to work while living in a structured environment (including therapeutic support when needed).

Another important aspect of the treatment we provide is academic assistance. Many of the young adults from Wyoming who enroll with ATC are still in need of completing their education. However, before they can successfully pursue a degree or trade, most of our students need to develop study skills and change their approach (attitude) toward academics. We have been very successful in helping young people restore their academic hopes and dreams. In addition, we provide specialized assistance for those with learning disorders (like ADHD). For more information about our academic assistance programs click here.

All of the ATC elements work together to help the young adults transform into the person they want to be.

Start your child and your family on a path of restored hope - through life skills training with therapeutic transitional living. We can help!

Some parental advice for understanding your young adult child..

To prevent drug abuse in young adults, parents can consider certain strategies, including establishing rules and consequences. Make it clear that you won't tolerate drug abuse. Rules might include leaving a party where drug abuse occurs and not riding in a car with a driver who's been using drugs. Agree on the consequences of breaking the rules ahead of time and enforce them consistently.

It’s difficult to understand your teen’s choices and inner life. Most parents, don’t necessarily like the choices their kids make. It helps to remember that his/her frontal cortex is still developing into their twenties, so teens are still building impulse control and the ability to foresee the consequences of their actions, and why you have better judgement than your teen.
