And yet many twenty-somethings are stalling adulthood. Stuck in the basement or online. Avoiding all the good stuff, like relationships and rewarding careers.
We call it ‘failure to launch,’ and in this era of childhood entitlement and all-the-time electronics, it’s becoming a common and paralyzing challenge. But for many young adults (18-29), it’s not just a matter of finding that motivation. Many also suffer from depression, from feelings of fear, hopelessness and despair.
Unlike other residential treatment, Emergo Recovery is experienced at treating both addictive behaviour and depression in young adults (as well as mature adults). In fact, we think you can only overcome one if you overcome both.
At Emergo, we set out to nurture the brain and the body in a way that’s natural and integrative. This is also a path to self-discovery, where young people gain the life skills to build the self-awareness and self-empowerment needed to move forward in a real and lasting way—to become self-reliant and live independently.
We also help unlock their purpose to inspire excitement and confidence about the future.
It’s important to get effective help for depression, lack of motivation and failure to launch syndrome soon. Otherwise, your loved one will be dependent—on family or even the government—and unable to cope in life. Substance abuse, addictions, and self-destructive behaviours are apt to spiral out of control.
Our residential treatment and wellness program helps save families because it’s not like other recovery programs. From focusing on nurturing the brain and involving the family to tailored programming and paleo-organic meals, we leave nothing to chance and everything to science.
