Transitional Independent Living Program also known as a Young Adult Program. With the goal of helping older teens and young adults (ages 18 and over) individuate from their families and integrate successfully into the larger community, transitional independent–living programs combine home-like living with supportive activities. In these programs, young adults can receive a combination of life skills and treatment.
Trained staff will coach and mentor young adults and help them learn independent living skills, maintain health and fitness, increase self-esteem, establish positive relationships, and manage moods and mental illness/addiction.
These programs provide alcohol and drug counseling, community networking, crisis management, group and individual therapy, gaming / internet / technology addiction counseling, life skills training, and social skills training, just to name a few.
Just as with programs for adolescents, there are a wide variety of transitional living programs located all across the United States in various different settings.
