A Comprehensive, Caring Approach
There is strength in community, especially when that community is comprised of people who share similar life experiences and perspectives. Those in treatment achieve optimal results by participating in group sessions among peers of similar age to whom they can more easily relate.
Younger adulthood is a time where people feel immense pressure to seamlessly transition into adulthood, take on more adult responsibilities, and be independent and successful.
They may be in their early 20s, single and financially supported by their parents; or in their 30s with a partner and young children. They may be preparing to transition into a new career or education after treatment. Many are hindered by mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression and trauma, which are only exacerbated by substance abuse.
Treatment at Guardian IOP focuses on addressing co-occurring mental health disorders and the underlying causes of addiction and replacing negative thought patterns with more positive, healthier self-talk–all in the company of people who share similar life experiences.
