It takes a village to raise a child. So we built one.

Transition to Independence

We teach teenagers life skills that school doesn’t. Skills that allow them to live full, independent lives.

The Transition to Independence program is a residential, clinical treatment program for teenagers aged 15–18. The program is staffed with a program supervisor, therapist, independent living coordinator, independent living instructor, and resident counselors, one of whom is assigned as a resident mentor.

Residents in the program are required to take individual and group classes including life skills and independent living; age-specific support groups and groups for teens with drug problems; cooking and nutrition; individual and family counseling; and recreational activities.

Individual Treatment Plans are created for each resident with specific goals to achieve, as well as a discharge plan to meet their needs.
