Destination Hope, a renowned dual diagnosis treatment center specializing in Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders, created a new program in August 2015. The Mature Adult Program (MAP) offers dual-diagnosis treatment catering to men of roughly 35 and older who would benefit clinically from a specialized treatment plan in a community of like-minded and mature individuals. Destination Hope has a long standing history of offering one of the best individualized treatment plans, honoring the diversity of each client’s needs.
The establishment of this new program stems from numerous requests from the outside community, industry research, and the evaluation of the interaction between a wide-range of ages and interests of the male clients. Mature adults find it sometimes difficult to relate to younger clients, which hinders their ability to maximize treatment services. MAP is designed in response to that need. The comfort level is enhanced with peer-to-peer related groups and their ability to participate in informative discussions is enhanced by the relative subject matter and life experience.
