Independent Living Programs for Young Adults
At The Crossroads (ATC) is known as one of the top Independent Living Programs for struggling young adults. The issues plaguing young people today are far greater than ever before, and the consequences more severe as well. For this reason, ATC specializes in helping young adults transition to adulthood and independent living. The ATC transitional living center has built a positive reputation by fostering independence in young adults for the last decade. ATC’s Independent Living Program provides job training, occupational skills training, and academic assistance for troubled young adults. Approximately 5 million young people, ages 18-28, have a severe mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and drug addiction). For too many struggling young people, the transition from adolescence to adulthood is particularly difficult.
It is estimated that approximately 5 million young people, ages 18-28, both men and women, suffer from a severe mental health condition (depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and drug addiction). For too many troubled young people, especially those dealing with mental health problems, struggle to transition from adolescence to adulthood.
At The Crossroads is designed to meet the needs of struggling young adults who are suffering from challenges associated with becoming independent. Meaning, they are unable or unwilling to live independently away from their parents. We know that it may not always be the fault of the young adult. Most of the time, these issues can be explained by learning disabilities such as ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, or just poor study habits. Regardless of the reason, there is hope, help, and promise of restoration.
According to Learning Disabilities Association of America, "They can also interfere with higher level skills such as organization, time planning, abstract reasoning, long or short term memory and attention. It is important to realize that learning disabilities can affect an individual’s life beyond academics and can impact relationships with family, friends and in the workplace."

Transitional Living Center For Troubled Youth
At The Crossroads is a unique, transitional living skills program that provides housing, and therapy, especially intended for young adults - while teaching them how to lead successful adult lives. Through a proprietary “Pathways” model, ATC provides young adults with an educational process to develop prosocial “life skills”. These skills prepare young people for future jobs and success at college. ATC recognizes the worth that each young individual has and takes pride in helping students to find their strengths, overcome their weaknesses, and to take accountability for their actions. At The Crossroads will help your son or daughter to recognize the greatness that they are capable of achieving.
Academic Assistance For Young Adults
At The Crossroads provides an excellent opportunity for academic support and credit recovery to make sure that your loved one has every chance to learn and grow. ATC provides schooling for GED, which will help the student to attend a university or trade school. Our professional staff teach study skills and oversee homework and other aspects of academic assistance - until the student can do all of this on their own. You should also know that ATC provides educational support for adults with developmental, intellectual, and learning disabilities. College preparation is one of our greatest contributions that our faculty can provide to our residents. With a college degree, your loved one will be confident, skilled, and ready for life’s adventure.
Finding Work With Job Training
Although job training and occupational skills training is our top priority, many of the young adults that come to ATC are in need of therapeutic intervention or addiction treatment. ATC has licensed therapists on staff, and encourage students to participate in individual and group therapy as needed. ATC is a substance-free environment, and we give regular drug testing to our students. We encourage spiritual learning and allow each young adult the opportunity to attend the church services of their choice.
