What Is A Parent to Do? Helping Your Young Adult With Career Decisions
How Is Failure To Launch Defined?
Failure to launch is defined as an inability in young adults to leave home due to lack of being prepared, or lack of desire to leave. They have reached the age of adulthood, but are not ready to begin their journey towards a self-supported life. When young adults suffer from the history of an addiction they have overcome, there are still lingering psychological effects on their mental state. Once they have decided to live sober there are still damaged social changes that occurred which will affect their self-esteem. What should be a time in their life where they meet journeying towards a self-supported life with enthusiasm and goals, the recovering addict with lower self-esteem will have a more regressive behavior.
Both The Parents And Child Need Independence

Research continues on the field of addiction and how it affects the makeup of some individuals, failure to launch syndrome is one aspect that has shown up in some behavioral patterns.
