SYRACUSE, UTAH, USA, Dec. 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As students and their families enter the final stages of their journey at Elevation RTC, they begin the exciting process of returning to family life. Instead of going home immediately after graduation, some students need extra guidance and support to prepare for a smooth and successful transition.

Elevations RTC’s “The Approach” program helps teens feel confident by equipping them with the skills and tools necessary for a successful transition into home. In addition to assisting students transitioning from Elevation RTC, assistance is also provided to students who have attended therapeutic boarding schools, wilderness therapy programs, and other residential treatment centers.

The Approach helps teens and young adults to:

Successful transition

Students are guided by staff members as they transition from an organized treatment environment to a less structured and more relaxed setting.

Honing Independent Living Skills

While living in a residential environment that mirrors the experience of students living in the “real world,” students have the chance to cultivate meaningful life skills that help launch them into independence.

Plan for the future

While at The Approach, residents are encouraged to continue studying locally at community colleges and high schools. Also, they can get career advice in which they are taught how to write resumes and get internships and part-time jobs.

Continuing to make therapeutic progress

Students in this transitional living program can keep the therapist they worked with throughout their healing journey. Additionally, they can access full-time care from a psychiatrist while at The Approach.

Every week, Jennifer Wilde, Executive Clinical Director, meets with students for “Living Well”. This group is where students discuss each other’s progress toward their goals. In addition, this meeting is an opportunity to have the point of view on how the students live together, and any conflict within the group is addressed.

Great importance is placed on creating a supportive community environment for The Approach. Throughout the program, a positive peer culture is encouraged, in which students collaborate and learn from each other when transitioning from a treatment situation.

The Approach’s beautiful and comfortable setting is explicitly designed for students to help build a positive peer culture. Are included in the home environment:

Personalized student rooms

Students are motivated to decorate their rooms to make the space their own and express their unique personality.

Spaces to meditate and relax

There are quiet spaces throughout the house for students to be alone and relax.

Several study spaces

There are quite a few spaces around that are ideal corners for reading and studying.

Community kitchen setting

Students learn cooking skills by cooking and eating with their peers; this allows them to bond with other members of the household.
