Troubled young adults

Trou.bled/young/ ad.ults 

n.noun 

The term “troubled young adults” refers to men and women (ages 18-30) who have struggled with transitioning into adulthood. For one reason or another, troubled young adults are ill-prepared for the responsibilities of adulthood. These young men and women lack life skills that are necessary for living a fully-functional, adult lifestyle.

Generally speaking, troubled young adults were at one time, considered to be troubled during their time of adolescence. In other words, troubled young adults are simply troubled teens who have now reached adulthood. Like troubled teens, troubled young men and women display negative behaviors, have little or no respect for authority, and put their energy in all of the wrong areas. If the behavioral patterns of a troubled young adult are not properly treated, the young adult is at high-risk of developing dangerous coping mechanisms, such as self harm or drug addiction.

Fortunately for troubled young people, there are many treatment options that offer independent life skill building, as well as, psychological and addiction treatment. As there are many treatment options to consider, wilderness therapy has proven to be one of the most effective of treatment methods for a young person to consider.
