Cascades Crest Transitions is a minimum nine month program that prepares young adults for adulthood by providing them the ability and skills to live independently. Cascade Crest provides the opportunity for students to practice these skills in a safe, supportive environment.
Students transitioning from wilderness therapy, residential program, or therapeutic boarding school may need extra support and guidance with their transition to living as an independent healthy adult. Cascade Crest Transitions is designed to work with students who are ready to take the next steps towards independence and are open to receiving therapy and academic advising. Offering a safe and structure environment students commonly need nine to 12 months to explore their interests and determine their direction through internships, on-the-job training, academics and career advising.
Individuals who successfully complete the Cascade Crest Transitions program develop healthy lifestyles and maintain both physical and emotional health through education and encouragement.
