One of the underlying challenges that plague many young adults is that they tend to still hold a strong child-like dependency for monetary, emotional needs and for their parents to solve problems for them. This challenge can be amplified by parents who consciously or subconsciously sends a message that their young adult child cannot work through their challenges on their own and therefore must depend on their parents' support.
By tracking outcomes of clients and families, Pacia Life has seen that the chances of success are increased significantly among families who learn empowering communication skills, increased accountability for their young adult, and the patience to trust the process.
With the understanding that family plays such a significant role in the young adult's process, Pacia Life continues to commit to new and better ways to address these critical family dynamics. This is why Pacia Life partnered with the Experiential Healing Institute (EHI). EHI and their team of parent coaches are dedicated to bridging the gap between therapeutic programming and “real life”. They work with parents to train them with the same skills that are being utilized by the staff who work with their young adults.
According to EHI, “Our Trainers bring methods and skills used in Wilderness Therapy and treatment centers to you at home and train the family to intervene before treatment is needed or to prepare a family for a loved one's return from a program.”
From day one, Pacia Life saw the value in utilizing parent coaches and began working with EHI. Through this collaboration, Pacia Life founder and visionary Randy Oakley has perfected a system in which parents of Pacia Life clients are connected to an EHI coach immediately upon their young adult child's enrollment. This system provides parents with the support they need during a difficult transitionary period. EHI and Pacia Life coaches work together to support the young adult and the family to create new healthier dynamics and habits.
