For teenage girls who need help with mood disorders, trauma, eating disorders, substance abuse, and interpersonal struggles there are many options in the field of residential treatment. However, when a girl turns eighteen, those options drastically decrease. Most residential programs come in the form of strict substance abuse treatment that lasts anywhere from one to three months, or in the form of transitional living only with very little therapeutic support. Fulshear Treatment to Transition is the only young adult female treatment facility that goes beyond teaching transitional living skills and limited focus on substance abuse treatment, focusing on young women age 18-24.
The professional and clinical staff at Fulshear is highly experienced in treating young women who need a more sophisticated approach and longer length of stay to maintain life changes – effectively providing clinical care to all of their clients. Once they meet the required clinical standards, Fulshear’s clients are given transitional living opportunities to apply their new skills in real life settings, while still receiving therapeutic support each week. This multiphase approach sets up each young woman for a successful launch into adulthood and independent living.
As a licensed marriage and family therapist, and a residential treatment director, I believe Fulshear provides outstanding support and treatment to a population that has very few options on the continuum of care.
