Choosing a top transitional living program for young women from Mississippi

After an intense therapeutic wilderness setting in Mississippi, close-knit and away from mainstream society, going back to normal can be difficult, and sometimes a transitional space is required to consolidate new skills and our new self. Journey Home fits this type of demand and is one of the leading transitional living programs from Mississippi.

Journey Home is a transitional living program intended for young women between the ages of 16 and 21, who have already had a successful experience in a therapeutic wilderness setting, and now want to improve their emotional, practical and social skills in order to be and feel more independent and successful. Picture8

Although not located in Mississippi, Journey Home helps young women from all over the country, and can continue the process started at a wilderness therapy center.

Journey Home€™s therapeutic approach focuses on choosing, with the help of parents and a specialized professional team, goals to accomplish in five core principles:

  • Healthy living
  • Education
  • Life Skills
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Social Integration

They are intended to be foundations for a better and more successful future.

What makes Journey Home one of the best transitional living programs is that we understand that there is a conflict between these young women€™s needs, like time to fully assimilate the new skills and lessons, and the pressing demands of society that is always pushing to go on and never stop. That€™s why our main mission is to provide a transitional space that allows for peace and time to grow as well as giving residents the opportunity to develop socially useful skills.

Finding The Best Therapeutic Solution For Your Mississippi Teen

 

Searching for a good transitional living program from Mississippi can be very disorienting, why should a girl that just ended treatment go through a transitional living program? Journey Home is intended for young women who need time and space to adjust to society again, after spending months away.

But for who exactly is our program intended for? There are certain requirements for admission. A potential resident needs to have graduated from a residential treatment center, therapeutic wilderness program, therapeutic boarding school, or other similar programs. They need to be ready for the responsibility and freedom that a transitional home entails, and have demonstrated a strong commitment to their therapeutic goals and life. For girls with substance abuse issues, a demonstrated commitment to sobriety is also crucial. IMG_1487

Any girl from Mississippi can participate in our transitional living program, and it is particularly suited for young women struggling with depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, body image issues, ADD/ADHD and other learning issues, academic struggles, and low self-esteem.

Journey Home intervention strategy is to establish goals for every girl, according to five core principles: Healthy Living, Education, Life Skills, Personal Responsibility and Social Integration. Our program from Mississippi is mostly intended to help transition from structured residential programs to home. To make this transition happen, girls have plenty of activities to choose from, like sports, fun activities such as movies or outdoors hiking, or more society-oriented like having classes about shopping, getting a job, budgeting. All of this along with therapy and studying.
