Research shows that the more a treatment program can meet the specific needs of each individual, the more effective it will be in helping that person achieve sustained recovery. Pavillon's Young Adult Program focuses on the unique and changing needs of young adults seeking treatment for addiction and alcoholism.
Because of increasing awareness of the needs of this younger generation of 18-28 year olds, Pavillon implemented a specialized track designed to effectively engage this particular group. The program meets the needs of patients who are not fully independent yet not completely dependent on anyone else.
Research indicates that developmental milestones, once thought to be completed by the end of adolescence, actually continue well into early adulthood. If a young person develops an addictive illness, these stages of development are delayed.
Pavillon's program incorporates key elements that make the services more relevant, helpful and suited to this group. Included is an age-specific curriculum with separate groups.
