Insight Intensive is the only program specifically designed to address the failure to launch epidemic. More and more young men are finding themselves stuck somewhere between adolescence and adulthood, unable to successfully engage the responsibilities of independence. Some turn to emotional eating, drugs and alcohol, or video games to escape their sense of failure. Others make repeated attempts at independence or college only to find themselves back at home with their parents again and again, their sense of purpose and confidence eroding a little more each time.
Insight Intensive offers these young men comprehensive and personalized preparation for college and/or work; and teaches them the concrete and emotional skills necessary for independence. We are able to help even those participants who have made multiple unsuccessful attempts to launch. Our clinical team and mentoring staff know that young men need to first develop competence in critical areas in order to have the confidence and clarity to engage adult responsibilities. We help build this competence, confidence, and clarity through an integrated, personalized program that addresses the whole person.
A holistic approach to a therapeutic living community recognizes that the body, mind and spirit are intertwined—what affects one of these affects the others. Insight Intensive’s approach combines multiple program components, all of which synergistically support the whole-person’s development. Our approach recognizes that different people need different things at different times in their lives. The program is designed to help each participant develop a balanced lifestyle regimen that specifically works for him as an individual. Such a regimen includes diet, nutrition, exercise and movement and establishes a strong mind-body connection.
Our program focuses on self-defined goals and measurable objectives that lead to implementing and executing an individualized Life Plan. Such an approach and the individualized Life Plan that comes out of our program enables each young adult to transition into a responsible and meaningful life.
It has been our experience that most individuals coming to our program need support and guidance in two notable areas: continuing academic efforts and vocational exploration. Each participant spends considerable time each week, if not each day, in the study lab and with their Senior Mentor to determine their direction and to make decisions regarding educational and vocational pursuits.
Insight Intensive is a comprehensive, whole-person approach designed to assist young adults in developing the necessary personal competencies and life-skills to engage in an authentic and responsible lifestyle. Learn More
The Insight Intensive program comprises three distinct phases that work to assess, enhance and integrate individualized goals and objectives—ultimately arriving at an effective and practical Life Plan. With the help of a thorough pre-enrollment evaluation, an earlier visit to our location, and an interview with the mentoring team, each individual is able to receive appropriate and effective guidance to make their intentions a reality.
