School Refusal And Failure To Launch Are Real Problems For Young Adults, How We Help

By: Josh White, MA, LCMHC, CGPPosted: Section: Featured Articles

Whether you've heard the term "failure to launch" or not, it's definitely a serious problem among young adults. It defines a frustrating process, for both parents and teens alike, where a young person is stuck between adolescence and adulthood while struggling with poor life skills.

Failure to Launch

Failure to launch is fast becoming an epidemic in the U.S. Studies show that nearly 32% of young adults (ages 18 to 34) still live at home with their parents. Part of the problem involves unemployment and excessive student loan debt, but more hidden - yet even more powerful factors - such as depression and addiction are part of it, as well.

Young adults can become stuck in an immature life development stage because of addiction, depression and anxiety, and consumed by fear of taking the next steps into adulthood.

Refusal To Go To School

The refusal to go to school is another serious issue many young adults experience. Sometimes confused with truancy, school refusal isn't the same as skipping school to do something fun, but rather an actual aversion to school itself because of disorders like separation or social anxiety. In some cases, it manifests itself in frequent tardiness because anxiety is so extreme that the teen has a difficult time getting to school on time.

In either failure to launch or refusal to go to school, or other issues such as addiction, the teen has a hard time moving forward in his or her life. At Red Mountain Sedona, issues such as these are addressed in a serene, natural environment by professionals who help students transform from lives of emotional distress and addiction, to sustained recovery and joy.
