Journey Home Creates Lasting Success For South Dakota Young Women

Journey Home is one of the most professional transitional living programs from South Dakota, we think that developing well-rounded skills is the best solution to achieve a long-lasting basis upon building success in our life. With more than a decade of experience in the field, our team established these five core principles as the most important areas to develop for becoming a successful and capable adult.

These principles are:

  • Healthy Living: It’s important to keep ourselves healthy, not only in our body, but also in mind and relationships. The objectives of this principle are to develop and take care of the body, learn to manage emotions and feelings and learn how to have good and satisfying relationships. Picture4
  • Education: In order to be a successful adult in a modern society having a job is important, and education can lead to more career opportunities. We teach how to develop hobbies and interests, and some career, high school or college skills.
  • Life Skills: Managing day-to-day problems is also very important for practical reasons and also to build self-esteem. We teach our girls financial (budgeting, balancing check book, saving), daily living (chores cleaning, hygiene, etc), shopping, cooking, organizational, time management and job searching skills.
  • Personal Responsibility: One of the most relevant principle is taking responsibility, gaining a sense of agency and commitment to ourselves and our desires, in order to do that our young women are trained to task completion, planning, time management and keeping commitments.
  • Social Integration: Interacting with others is of course fundamental to be in any society, therefore we teach our girls how to have positive recreational activities, do community service, dating and healthy socialization.

We differ from other transitional living programs in the fact that our program from South Dakota is intended to involve parents and the resident in planning goals and treatment, this way we build up more sense of agency in our girls.

Journey Home: One of the Leading Transitional Living Programs Helping Young Women from South Dakota

Choosing the best transitional living program for your daughter from South Dakota can be a troublesome and very disorienting experience, a lot of doubts can come to our mind when we try to figure out the best option for our loved ones without any real knowledge about what’s going on, It’s important to make sure that a transitional living program is the best place for your daughter’s needs.

To make sure that Journey Home is the best fit for your South Dakota family, we conduct an admissions interview, which is the first of many personalized steps specifically designed for every young woman’s needs and desires.Picture7

We help young women acquire all the necessary skills to be successful in society. During their time at our program, we help young women focus on five major core principles: healthy living, education, life skills, personal responsibility and social integration. These principles help to empower our residents towards a happier, brighter future.

Journey Home is located in Utah, more specifically in Layton, just outside Salt Lake City, but of course we help young women all over the country, including South Dakota.

Our transitional living program from South Dakota includes the family as an active part of the treatment, because we find that involving family and having a good, open and honest relationship with parents and siblings is the best proactive factor for a successful therapeutic process and a successful and happier life.

Journey Home is meant to be a place for young women who struggle with mental issues, and now want to find a place where they have the space necessary to develop skills and regain that sense of strength and empowerment to face society again, while they spend time adjusting to their new abilities gained through the previous treatment.
