Promises Young Adult Programs treat young people ages 18 to 30 in a warm, inviting home located halfway between Beverly Hills and the Pacific Ocean. Treatment is rooted in the 12 steps and the Stages of Change model, and also addresses grief/loss, emotion dysregulation, trauma, family dynamics and other issues that may contribute to unhealthy behaviors. Since young adults thrive when they are introduced to a wide range of therapies and allowed to decide which ones resonate with them, Promises offers wolf therapy, spirituality workshops, equine therapy and neurofeedback, among many other innovative therapies.
“Joni is very well-respected in the field and brings exceptional clinical leadership to our team,” said Nanci Stockwell, LCSW, MBA, Promises’ regional vice president for California. “She has extensive experience working with the 12 steps and as a recreational therapist doing adventure therapy, equine therapy, art therapy and other experiential therapies, which is a vital part of working with young people.”
