For Young Adults, the Northbound Academy Program provides the perfect opportunity to receive addiction treatment while simultaneously receiving help for career and educational endeavors.
The Northbound Academy Specializes in Treating Young Adults Ages 18 to 25 Years Old.
The treatment of young adults (aged 18-25) who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol requires special care and presents unique challenges. At an age where so many of their peers are full of plans and hopes for the future, many drug addicted young adults have problems related to educational and occupational ambivalence. For that reason, young adults in treatment require special guidance in the areas of education and occupation development. At the Northbound Academy, we have educational consultants and career consultants on staff to help young adults with their occupational and educational goals. This can mean helping them envision and develop those goals as well as completing the goals that they’ve already begun but have been derailed.
For Young Adults, the Northbound Academy Program provides the perfect opportunity to receive addiction treatment while simultaneously receiving help for career and educational endeavors. Our program is specifically designed to aid young adults in the grip of chemical dependency (and any co-occurring disorders), overcome those issues and move toward a happier and productive future. The Northbound Academy uses a combination of motivational enhancement and therapeutic techniques to help young adults suffering from addiction begin, continue, or complete their academic careers.
In addition, our treatment center has a young, yet experienced staff that our students can relate to and learn from. We are the next generation of treatment in every sense of the word. By creating activities and events that cater to a young adult population, we heavily emphasize fun in sobriety. The Northbound Academy goes to great lengths to make our students’ activities even more exciting and adventurous. In this way, we hope to help our students achieve their career goals and aspirations along with their desire for a healthy, sober life.
