Specialized Support for Young Adults

Young adults in addiction recovery require specialized support systems to address their unique developmental and emotional stages.

Research highlighted by the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment suggests that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI) are effective in engaging young adults.2

Peer support groups, like those offered by Cornerstone Healing Center, play a vital role in providing young adults a sense of community and belonging, which is crucial for their recovery. These groups offer relatable experiences and coping strategies, creating an environment of mutual understanding and support.

By integrating tailored counseling, peer interactions, and life skill development, Cornerstone equips young adults with the tools for long-term sobriety and growth, addressing their specific challenges with comprehensive care and targeted support on their recovery journey.

Addressing the Unique Needs of Young Adults in Recovery

Young adults face considerable stigma and judgment related to substance abuse, making them hesitant to seek help. Treatment programs for young adults offer a secure, confidential environment to address these concerns.

Many young adults with substance use disorders have experienced trauma, such as abuse, bullying, or other forms of violence. Treatment programs for young adults frequently adopt trauma-informed approaches, fostering a supportive environment that addresses these sensitive issues.

Young adults in addiction treatment often struggle with co-occurring mental health issues. Programs designed for young adults offer integrated services to address both substance use and mental health disorders concurrently.3

Young adults benefit significantly from peer support in treatment, especially when sharing relatable experiences. Treatment programs for young adults often emphasize group therapy and peer-led support groups to foster a sense of connection and community.

Empowering young adults in their recovery is vital, given the disempowerment many have experienced. Treatment for young adults often centers on enhancing self-efficacy and life skills, enabling them to regain control and establish a foundation for a substance-free life.

Young adults may have different triggers for relapse compared to older adults, such as peer pressure, social media influence, and negative emotions. Treatment programs for young adults develop relapse prevention strategies that specifically address these age-related differences.

How does residential differ from outpatient?

Long-term residential treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, is a different approach to addiction recovery compared to outpatient services.

In residential treatment, individuals stay at the treatment center, receiving round-the-clock support and comprehensive care. This option is handy for those with severe addictions, as it provides a controlled environment away from everyday triggers and pressures.

On the other hand, outpatient rehab allows individuals to stay at home while attending treatment sessions according to a set schedule. Its flexibility is especially suitable for individuals with less severe addictions or those with significant work and family obligations.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) advises that choosing between residential and outpatient treatment should depend on the severity of the addiction, individual health requirements, and personal circumstances. It highlights the need for tailored recovery strategies.5

Cornerstone provides various treatment programs depending on the severity of addiction challenges. Inpatient and Residential programs are ideal for those with more severe situations, while Outpatient programs are for less severe.

Please contact us or fill out our insurance verification form for more information on how to begin your recovery journey with us.

What happens after long term residential treatment?

After completing our young adults residential treatment program, you’ll progress to another level of care to continue your treatment journey.

Depending on your needs, this next phase may involve partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient care, or our outpatient program.

You can be confident that we’ll support you at every stage of your recovery.
