STRiV is proud to announce the opening of their new young adult college support program near Utah Valley University in Orem, UT. STRiV is passionate about helping young adults prepare for the challenges of adulthood, and providing a community-based, therapeutic- and social-support program specifically designed for college students. The support, or “scaffolding,” is tailor-made for each individual client, building on their strengths and supporting them where they need it most. STRiV was created to help young adults develop the confidence to move forward – one step, one skill, one class at a time. And the best part is it does not feel like another treatment program.
Co-founded by Clark H. Hammond, Ph.D., LMFT, Jon Doebler, Director of Operations and Shahara Crist, Admissions Director with a shared mission of assisting young adults move forward in their lives and joining the Executive Team is Matthew Lewis as Director of Marketing and Outreach, together the team has over a century of experience in the field of residential treatment and wilderness therapy treatment programs. Recognizing the need to assist struggling young adults in building essential core competencies, they felt driven to merge their experience into a values-driven, strengths-based venture with that very purpose – to support emerging adults in developing the necessary skills for independent living. “Our vision is a bit ambitious, but it’s why we do what we do. We truly aim to make a positive impact on the world by helping one young adult at a time to become their best selves. This is the next generation of leaders, inventors, educators – and we can help in a profound way," said Jon Doebler, Director of Operations.
STRiV helps students with a variety of struggles like disruptive social challenges, under-developed executive skills, or emotional behaviorial dysregulation. According to Dr. Clark Hammond, Executive Director, “There has been a significant up-swing in the experience of debilitating anxiety, depression and other mental health issues among our nation’s young adults. And they’re painfully under-served. STRiV can be a tremendous resource for helping many young adults overcome these challenges, and move courageously into adulthood.”
These challenges could be due to attachment issues, mild Autism Spectrum Disorder, gender identity concerns, over-dependence on electronics, anxiety/depression and more. STRiV is now accepting applications. For more information, visit www.StrivForward.com
