Group Homes for Young Adults Illinois
Expanse Wilderness is one of the top-notch programs for struggling young adults from Illinois, helping young adults with rehabilitation from sex addiction (pornography), drug addiction (dependency), and trials related to mental health, such as general anxiety, low self-esteem or under-achievement. Through a highly trained staff of professional counselors and licensed therapists, our program helps our young adult students to see their obstacles from an objective angle and to see that consequences do exist for their actions.
As one of the superior wilderness rehab centers for troubled emerging adults, Expanse Wilderness may be located outside of Illinois; however, our program is open to young adult men and women ages 18 to 28, from across the country. Many of our adult wilderness participants who participated in our program state that the distance placed between them and home actually helped them to better disassociate from their trials 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 obstacles that prevented them from living independently in the community. However, the term is now more loosely used to refer to any inpatient treatment center that delivers living accommodations.
Expanse Wilderness, through their parent company WinGate Wilderness Therapy, also helps adolescents, ages 13-17. For more information, please visit the WinGate Wilderness Therapy program for youth website, or call them at (800) 560-1599.
Offering Restoration Focused Therapy
Expanse Wilderness has taken this traditional model of offering recovery focused therapy and living arrangements to a more practical level. Placing emotionally challenged young adults in a wilderness environment has a remarkable effect of simultaneously humbling them and allowing them to see the actual scope of their trials and boost their confidence. Being in the outdoors for this extended period of time serves to disable the defensive stance that many emerging adults from Illinois adopt that prevents them from talking with and building relationships with the counselors.
We have intake counselors available to answer any and all questions regarding our program model, as well as to help supporting family members of young adult men and women in Illinois through the application process. Call (800) 685-3059 today!
Mental Health Group Homes for Young Adults
When looking for the best long-term residential treatment center for young adults from Illinois, one of the simplest choices to make is choosing between a gender specific program and a co-ed therapeutic program. There are benefits to both program models, however, the real life scenarios that are encountered within a co-ed group home serve to better prepare emerging adults who may be battling drug addiction (dependency), mental health related obstacles, or social anxiety, for life after treatment.
Expanse Wilderness is co-ed therapeutic program, whose unique approach to wilderness therapy serves to produce consistent results among young adult men and women from Illinois, helping them to address their trials, create bonds with their program peers as well as their therapists, and learn essential skills for breaking the negative thought and behavior patterns that prevent them from moving forward in life successfully.
To Better Ensure Lasting Change
This co-ed environment is far from distracting, as opponents argue, as the shared struggle with personal obstacles serves to create an atmosphere between peers that is familiar - without any romantic undertones. As part of the treatment received, new communications skills learned are strengthened as struggling young adults have the opportunity to engage these new skills immediately, with members of both sexes who often different styles of communication. This helps to better ensure lasting change and better encourage emerging adults to apply the skills they've learned in our therapeutic program once they're out in the real world.
Expanse Wilderness is a proud member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs, a voluntary organization of therapeutic schools and programs faithful to serving young adult men and women and providing them with effective therapy and treatment to help them on the road to rehabilitation. This dedication permeates our program model and is the foundation for our philosophy.
Adventure Therapy Programs
The cornerstone of the Expanse Wilderness program is the belief that troubled young adults from Illinois can make the right choices for themselves, they just need to be shown how. The problems these emerging adults face, such as alcohol and drug abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, and other trials relating to mental health can all be helped by offering a distraction-free environment that delivers them the chance to reconnect with their true self and to see others (parents, siblings, teachers, etc.) as people rather than obstacles and pawns to manipulate to get what they want.
Wilderness therapy is a highly effective alternative to group homes for emotionally challenged young adult men and women in Illinois. Without any avenues for escapist tendencies -such as video games, cell phones, or the internet; struggling young adults commit themselves more fully to the treatment, engaging in activities and therapy sessions willingly and relating to their peers in a supportive and encouraging manner.

The Most Significant Benefits Of Wilderness Therapy
One of the most significant benefits of wilderness therapy is how quickly our young adult students begin to engage in therapies, reaching out to their counselors and initiating discussions of what they're undergoing. This is paramount in treating substance abuse and obstacles relating to mental health, as it allows our adult wilderness participants to see their struggles from a broader angle and to learn better methods for coping with their trials. This enables them to move forward more confidently and more likely to follow through on the recovery process.
