Group Homes for Young Adults in Minnesota

WinGate - Young adult depressed seeking help from treatment facilityWinGate Wilderness Therapy is one of the leading Group Home programs for troubled young adults from Minnesota, helping young adults with recovery from substance abuse, addiction, and issues related to mental health, such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and conduct disorder. Through a highly trained staff of licensed counselors and medical staff, our program helps young adults to see their problems from an objective angle and to see that consequences do exist for their actions.

As one of the leading treatment programs for struggling young adults, WinGate may be located outside of Minnesota; however, our program is open to young adults (up to age 26) from across the country. Many of the young adults who have participated in our program state that the distance placed between them and home actually helped them to better disassociate from their issues and move forward unburdened and focused on their future.

Historically, Group Homes for young adults had referred to residential facilities for individuals with learning disabilities, cognitive disorders, and severe mental health issues that prevented them from living independently in the community. However, the term is now more loosely to refer to any treatment center that provides living accommodations.

WinGate Wilderness Therapy has taken this traditional model of providing recovery focused therapy and living arrangements to a more practical level. Placing troubled young adults in a wilderness environment has a remarkable effect of simultaneously humbling them and allowing them to see the actual scope of their issues and boost their confidence. Being in the outdoors for this extended period of time serves to disable the defensive stance that many young adults from Minnesota adopt that prevents them from talking with and building relationships with the therapeutic staff.

We have consultants available to answer any and all questions regarding our program model, as well as to help parents of young adults in Minnesota through the application process. Call (800) 560-1599 today!

Help for Parents

Cutting: If your young person is cutting, how did it start? Cutting often begins on an impulse. It’s not something the person thinks about ahead of time. It starts when something’s really upsetting and they don’t know how to talk about it or what to do. But they can’t get their mind off feeling upset, and their body has this knot of emotional pain. Then, they cut themselves to release the pain.

Why Are Teens Using?: When coping with your young person’s drug and alcohol addiction, acceptance is a great tool. By accepting that your child is in the throes of the disease of addiction and there is no other way out than through, you can find your way. Life is what it is, filled with joy, skepticism, times of great hope, and also dark times filled with deep sorrow. Learn to embrace the process that you have been thrust into.
