Over the past year and a half at LifeTutors, I have worked with numerous families whose young adult children are seeking support in their lives. Whether they be male or female, neurotypical or atypical, 18 or 30, one factor has remained consistent for all of our LifeClients: they have completed treatment in at least one residential setting and are seeking a transition to propel them into their future.
The young adults I work with have participated in various wilderness programs and residential treatment centers. Our LifeClients have gleaned positive outcomes and connections throughout the many supportive environments they have experienced. However, the common thread I observe is the anticipation of independent living and no longer relying on created support systems within a residential setting.
Our young adults yearn for the freedom and responsibility that living independently requires. They feel confident in their past successes, and are ready to be vulnerable once more in an ever-changing world with expectations they are not prepared to face alone. That’s where we come in.
If your young adult has completed treatment and is ready to take the next step in their lives, do not hesitate to reach out to me. Let’s talk about how we can partner together and create a path towards independence- by taking life one step at a time.
