Why It Works

Life Uninterrupted: Clients Can Pursue Goals In Tandem with Treatment

Life Uninterrupted: Clients Can Pursue Goals In Tandem with Treatment

Being in a major hub such as New York City or Washington, D.C., we can help young people connect with a life that feels meaningful without the need to press pause or relocate after their care. Our clients stay connected to their community and long-term goals while benefiting from the structure, accountability and clinical care they need locally.

Access to Academic, College & Vocational Opportunities

Keys to the Future: Access to Academic, College & Vocational Opportunities

68% percent of colleges and universities are located in cities, serving over 20 million students. City-based care enables young adults to pursue academic and career goals with greater ease alongside and beyond treatment. 83% of our young adult clients are able to successfully return to college after a leave of absence.

Long Exposure: Practicing Skills & Managing Triggers in Real-time

Long Exposure: Practicing Skills & Managing Triggers in Real-time

Triggers are a part of life. When young adults learn to process and face them in the real-time environment they hope to work, live, or study, it helps sustain long-term recovery and reduces relapse rates. As a result of treatment, our clients experience +24% improvement in personal self-efficacy: confidence in their ability to problem-solve and achieve goals.

Building Belonging: Communities of Social and Sober Diversity

Building Belonging: Communities of Social and Sober Diversity

At any hour of the day, our clients can find meaningful fellowship; a sober network or an affinity space for the LGBTQ+ or BIPOC community. If it’s needed, it can be found in our home cities.

At the end of their treatment journey with us at The Dorm, our young adult clients are independently functioning on all levels and equipped for whatever’s next.

3 Common Misconceptions
about Urban Mental Health Treatment

“You must be removed from people, places, and things to be successful in treatment”

Misconception about Urban Mental Health Treatment

Our model helps clients stabilize, build skills and “thrive-in-place”. Today, 87% of our alumni are gainfully employed or in school full-time, living out their dreams.

“With bars and dispensaries on every corner, the city is too triggering...”

Misconception about Urban Mental Health Treatment

Triggers are a part of life no matter where you are. Our model works to help clients face them with real-time, clinical expert support around processing, exposure therapy, and practical skills-work.

“Serenity and well-being cannot be found in an urban setting”

Misconception about Urban Mental Health Treatment

Finding ‘serenity’ in treatment is unique to the individual. Our campuses offer access to exceptional outdoor spaces and we help each client find their own pocket of peace whether that’s through movement, meditation or social connection. As a result of our care, clients experience +138% improvement in well-being (ability to work/enjoy life).

The City as a Therapeutic/Mental Health Gap Year Destination
