The Young Adult On The Couch
“Failure to launch” syndrome combined with drug and alcohol misuse, abuse and dependence has today’s youth and their parents paralyzed—but it can be fixed.
(NAPSI)—According to Pew Research, 29 percent of 25-to-34-year-olds either never moved out of their parents’ home or returned recently because of the economy. This syndrome, in which young adults are unable to secure meaning, purpose, relationships and independence, is known as “failure to launch.” When it’s accompanied by substance use disorders, families can become overwhelmed, and face the emotional and financial burden of having to send their loved one to treatment.
Fortunately, there’s a place that specializes in treating the conjoined issues of substance use disorders and failure to launch. Called Decision Point Center, it assesses, diagnoses and treats drug and alcohol misuse, abuse and dependence and addresses such underlying issues as mental and physical health needs, life skills and functional acuity.
Based in Arizona, the facility takes a “You-Based” approach to crafting a program of continuing care that best addresses each person’s unique needs, skills and mentality. A unique 15-day assessment and evaluation phase also helps clients, their families and caregivers better understand and adapt to each client’s conditions.
