Failure to Launch Help For Young Adults in California

Do you or does your son struggle with Failure to Launch Syndrome? There is help available, and you’ve come to the right place. Forte Strong is the nation’s premiere treatment program for young men with failure to launch syndrome. Our therapists and coaches have helped many young men in situations just like yours from not just California, but all over the world, overcome many different struggles, including video game addiction, depression, anxiety, avoidant personality disorder, lack of motivation, and more. We want to do the same for you!

What is Failure to Launch Syndrome?

“Launching” as an adult is defined as the ability to support oneself as a responsible, self-sufficient individual. Thus, those who have failed to launch fail to achieve this responsibility or independence in some way. For one reason or another, they haven’t progressed in life the way their peers have–going to college, getting a full-time job, moving out of their parent’s house, etc. There is no blanket cause for failure to launch syndrome. For some young men, this is simply because of a lack of direction: they have no idea what they want to do with their life, so they haven’t moved forward. For others, it can be a symptom of an underlying mental illness, such as depression or avoidant personality disorder. Technology addictions like video game addiction can also hinder a young man from launching in life. No matter the cause, Forte Strong can help. We’ve seen it all and our experts are trained to deal with all kinds of cases.

How Can Forte Strong Help?

In order to help young men struggling with Failure to Launch Syndrome succeed, you have to take them out of their comfortable environment. Growth doesn’t come from staying in the same place. For many young people going off to college or moving out is enough of a catalyst to help them transition into adulthood. For others, however, it simply isn’t enough. They need additional help and guidance, and that’s where Forte Strong comes in.

Forte Strong is a residential program, meaning that participants leave their homes in California to spend about 6 months in beautiful Southern Utah, living with other participants in the program. In this environment, away from the comforts of home and among others in a similar situation, young men can thrive and begin to grow. At Forte Strong, you have access to therapists who can help overcome mental illnesses and other setbacks holding you back, and life coaches who help with everything from budgeting to finding a job to eating healthy. At Forte Strong, you have the opportunity to gain the skills that you need in a safe environment, where you can receive help and guidance as needed.

Why Forte Strong?

There are other treatment facilities that offer Failure to Launch syndrome treatments. However, Forte Strong focuses specifically on treating this and only this. At other other programs, participants are mixed in with those with drug addictions and other serious addictions and disorders. While there is no doubt that people struggling with other, more serious issues should seek out and receive treatment, Forte Strong is not the place for that. At Forte Strong we focus specifically on Failure to Launch and the issues surrounding it, so you know that everyone there is in the same boat. This allows participants to connect deeply with each other and help each other out, and the coaches to focus specially on what the participants need most. Our attention isn’t split, so we can offer the best care in treating Failure to Launch Syndrome.

This specialization also allows our program team, from the coaches and therapists to the founders, to all be well versed in treating Failure to Launch syndrome. Because that is what our program specializes in, it allows our staff to specialize in helping specifically young men with failure to launch syndrome. We don’t aim to be a jack-of-all-trades, we want to be the best in all that we do. You can read more about our team here.

Additionally, we may be biased, but we don’t believe you can find a better location. Located in St George in Southern Utah, Forte Strong is just a short flight or a day’s drive from California. It’s close enough to home without being too close that it’s stifling. Southern Utah is known for its beautiful national parks and other natural scenery. Participants in Forte Strong often go on hikes and other outdoor adventures, allowing them the chance to push themselves and become stronger and more confident. We’re also located near Dixie State University, where some participants choose to take classes to further their education while at Forte Strong. There isn’t a better location.
