Journey Home East is a program for young women ages 16-21, where there are 10-12 clients living in the home at a time.
The residents at Journey Home East are young women who have successfully completed a previous therapeutic placement, whether that be wilderness, residential treatment or a therapeutic boarding school. The clients at Journey Home East are young women who have demonstrated the ability to handle freedoms and tasks independently. While there is structure for the Journey Home East resident, they are also being taught how to manage their free time appropriately. Our residents have highly trained staff members who are able to help them process and move through their day to day tasks with a wide variety of guidance, depending upon the resident's needs. The Journey Home East residents are provided the opportunity of off-site activities in downtown Asheville, including school, shopping and hobbies, all within walking distance.
Because of this freedom, the residents at the home cannot be court ordered to receive treatment and must be willing to be in the Journey Home East program. This program provides the amount of structure needed for a young woman to successfully launch into independence with minimal support and help sustain a healthy relationship with their family.
About Journey Home East
Journey Home East serves females aged 16-21 and provides structure for students while they learn independent living skills. Much of the structure and support provided by our 24/7 staffed home is managing electronic devices, managing free time and social life appropriately, and budgeting, shopping for groceries, and cooking meals. Clients enrolling at Journey Home have a previous therapeutic placement, where home was not an option afterward. They are provided with a therapist in the home to work on individual and family issues.
