Young Adult Program

Lakeside’s Young Adult Program is geared toward the behavioral health challenges of young adults.

They are looking to find and make their way in a world that is vastly different and may sometimes not understand them.

These young adults are facing many life-issues:

  • Graduation
  • College
  • Career
  • Identity
  • Independence
  • Marriage
  • Family
  • Future

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Lakeside’s Young Adult Program is designed to address the age-specific issues of young adults. These post 9/11 individuals view life differently than others preceding them and are struggling with behavioral health challenges, addiction/abuse…or both.

To prepare our patients to meet these challenges, the Young Adult Program offers an integrated continuum of care for individuals with mental health or dual diagnosis disorders. Patients and their families participate in a comprehensive therapeutic approach, consisting of individual and multi-family therapies designed to assist them in dealing with the special challenges facing the family and the young adult.

Lakeside’s treatment philosophy is built on education, cognitive restructuring, emotive therapies, group therapies and multi-family sessions. Patients move through progressive levels of care while participating in specialty groups that help them identify and manage underlying issues that drive their addiction or behavior.
