Young adulthood—ages approximately 18 to 26—is a critical time in life.
What happens during these years has profound and long-lasting implications for young adults’ future employment and career paths and for their economic security, health, and well-being. New Life Foundation Recovery INC recognizes that young adults are key contributors to the nation’s workforce and military services and, since many are parents, to the healthy development and well-being of the next generation.
Therefore, here at NLFR INC we provide “Proactive Addiction Education Awareness, Support, and Treatment Services” to Young Adults who are struggling with SUD issues in an environment that fosters “Unconditional Positive Regard”.
In recent decades, the world has changed in ways that place greater demands on young adults and provide less latitude for failure which often times leaves young adults resulting to Drug and Alcohol Use.
The disruption and lengthening of established social and economic pathways into adulthood—graduating from high school, entering college or the workforce, taking on civic engagement and national service, leaving home, finding a spouse or partner, and starting a family—have presented more choices and opportunities for some young adults, and more barriers for others.
And the transition to adulthood reflects the end of trial periods and the beginning of more consequential actions.
Providing educational, economic, social, and health supports will help young adults assume adult roles, develop marketable skills, and adopt healthy lifelong habits that will benefit them, their children, and the nation. Despite popular attention to some of the special circumstances of young adults, however, they are too rarely treated as a distinct population in policy, program design, and research. Instead, they are often grouped with adolescents or, more often, with all adults.
