The Horizon Home for girls helps prepare young women for adulthood and independent living as they step down to a less-restrictive environment.
The Horizon Home is designed much like a family environment, with a shared sense of independence and community. Youth in residence continue to address issues related to family, peer pressure dynamics, chemical use, vocational skill development, social skills, independent living skills, and healthy sexuality. Clients also attend high school or college and/or secure gainful employment while residing at the Horizon Home.
Indian Oaks staff support the young adults 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.
Youth Served: Young women, age 17.5-21, who have successfully completed an Indian Oaks Academy treatment program.
