For many, the stage of adolescence is one of the most challenging periods in one's life. The ongoing physical, mental, and emotional transformation takes a toll on a young person's pursuit of growth and maturity. Outside factors may impede one's development during this critical phase, as they constantly face pressure not only from their peers and family but from society at large.

Exposure to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, poverty, and violence leaves young adults prone to mental health problems. According to the World Health Organization, half of the mental health disorders found around the world manifest as early as 14 years of age. To address mental health issues seen in adolescents, recovery service specialists, such as Transcend Recovery Community help the youth achieve optimal mental wellness during this challenging phase.

What Is Young Adult Treatment?

Adolescence is indeed an important stage in one’s life. During these formative years, people develop and sustain social and emotional practices and traits essential as they mature in promoting sound mental well-being.

However, young people encounter many difficulties transitioning from childhood to adulthood due to physical and hormonal changes that trigger emotional responses. On top of these transformations, they face tremendous pressure from their peers and society on how they must conduct themselves. As a result, pressure triggers stress, affecting adolescents longer-term, where they can potentially succumb to various mental health problems.

Adolescents suffering from mental health conditions are particularly vulnerable to learning difficulties, risky practices, poor overall physical health, and social stigma.

Mental health treatment in young adults remedies these problems and severs any potential complications that may arise if they continue to persist. Therapies specializing in the youth provide a deeper understanding of the appropriate action plan needed to address mental health issues.

Young people may gain significantly from receiving youth-oriented recovery treatment to help them function and mature better during this crucial period of their lives. It may involve group behavioral therapies or adolescent mentoring, depending on the nature of their situation.

Does Transcend Offer Treatment For Young Adults?

While Transcend generally provides counseling, guidance, and supplemental recovery for patients, it works closely with its sister company, The Heights Treatment, a treatment center specializing in many rehabilitation programs. You can expect to receive effective behavioral therapy treatments to better the troubled youth's mental health conditions. It incorporates various methods such as addiction and anxiety treatment. Additionally, The Heights Treatment recommends adolescent monitoring and relapse prevention to truly ensure that the young patient adheres to his treatment program at all times.

Behavioral therapies also help in a young adult's continuous mental rehabilitation. Cognitive restructuring or "thought" challenging employs a three-step process that transforms a typically destructive or toxic thinking pattern into a more insightful approach.

It includes:

  • First, identifying negative ideas and chronicling them in a journal;
  • next, Discussing and confronting those anxiety-inducing thinking cycles; and
  • lastly, creating balanced and rational thoughts from the insights incurred in the former phase.

Transcend and The Heights Treatment work together in helping young patients overcome their mental challenges by desensitizing them from those triggers to lessen agitation and anxiety. They are trained to commonly associate feared objects or events with a more logical thinking system during the therapy session.
