The Journey Home Boys’ Transitional Living Program —
Programs for Boys Ages 17.5-21

The Indian Oaks Journey Home Transitional Living Program prepares young men, ages 17.5-21, for adulthood and independent living as they step down from residential treatment to a less-restrictive environment.

Residents continue to address issues related to family, peer pressure dynamics, chemical use, vocational skill development, social skills, independent living skills, and healthy sexuality. Clients attend high school or college and/or secure gainful employment while residing at the Journey Home.

Indian Oaks staff support these young men in transition as they learn to develop independence in the areas of personal safety, education, self-medication, emotional management, public transportation, money management, cooking, employment skills, chemical health, positive leisure/recreation, accessing medical services, and seeking spiritual resources.
