Substance Abuse Treatment Programs for Young Adults from Boston, MA
At The Crossroads (ATC) is a treatment center that deals with troubled youth ages 18 to 25. These young adults have different problems and needs than teenagers, and ATC has developed programs that address those needs. Because our society has decided how a “normal” adult should act, many who are struggling in this age group don’t know how to behave like a grown up and often feel out of place. ATC can help by teaching them appropriate behaviors and train them in typical adult-like responsibilities. In this program they learn four important behaviors during the treatment process: 1) How to Live Independently, 2) Healthy Living Habits, 3) Spiritual Awareness, and 4) How to Develop and Maintain Healthy Relationships.
How We Help Young Adults from Boston, MA
Without help older children who suffer from substance addictions may never be able to develop the skills and confidence needed to live independently. Fortunately ATC does exactly that; students live in a controlled setting, with mentor/leaders constantly monitoring their activity and progress. When appropriate, these are required to attend school, hold down a job, and attend personal and group therapy sessions that help them to develop strong relationships. The bottom line is that these young adults get help in every aspect of the maturing process so they can become productive members of society. Call now to set up an appointment at (866) 439-0354.
Help is Available for Young Adults near Boston, MA
Grown children that abuse drugs and alcohol present very difficult problems for parents, especially when these kids can’t or won’t leave the family home. Research shows clearly that a link exists between substance abuse in young adults and the failure to develop adult characteristics. Often the stunted growth these kids exhibit becomes a burden on the parents, especially when there are younger siblings. Often the only option seems to be estrangement from the family. At The Crossroads' programs help and allow young adults to develop independence and self-sufficiency. For more information call us at (866) 439-0354.

Important facts that parents should know..
Certain inborn personality traits seem to predispose people to having social problems as young adults. But, having a particular personality doesn't mean your child is destined to have social issues, just that if he or she is already leaning towards being awkward, certain life events can more easily 'activate' it.
If you feel that your adult child is on the verge of mental illness, there are some things that can help to keep her well, such as being in good physical health, eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise, having time and the freedom to play, indoors and outdoors, being part of a family that gets along well most of the time, and taking part in activities with other young people.
