Independent Living Program —
Programs for Young Men

Young men who have successfully completed treatment through Onarga Academy's transitional living program may move to a more independent living option like an apartment or college campus at the end of their stay.

Onarga Academy provides support to young men during this transition, including helping them locate an apartment, find a job, and adapt to college life. Youth also receive ongoing treatment while participating in the independent living program.

The goal of an Independent Living Program is to provide young men with support as they transition to living on their own.
