Men’s Mature Adult Treatment Program (MAP)
In the spirit of the founding principles of truly individualized care, we are proud to have expanded our treatment program to include a new behavioral health program for Mature Adults including drug addiction and mental health treatment.
This a new behavioral healthcare track is dedicated to men who have a high level of maturity and life experience. While a number of the clients in this program will be older, adult men, age is secondary to clients sharing similar life interests, family goals and lifestyles. We truly believe that by customizing the recovery process to specific goals allows these mature men to receive the utmost clinical treatment based on their individual needs.
The Mature Adult Program groups men with similar life experiences. More important than the chronological age will be their level of maturity and interests. Grouping clinically appropriate men in small, individualized care programs unlocks the very best benefits of treatment.

Why A Mature Adult Behavioral Health Program?
Mature adults often find it challenging to relate to less mature and experienced clients, which can hinder their ability to maximize treatment services. MAP is designed in response to that need. The effectiveness of our peer-to-peer groups and informative and educational discussions is enhanced by the relative subject matter and similar life experience. Some of the most common challenges affecting mature adults in recovery include:
- Relationships in the marriage
- Relationships with younger or older children
- Work-life balance
- Career and opportunity enhancement
- Planning for life changes
- Managing family and workplace satisfaction
The Mature Adult Program (MAP), much like our other individualized programs offers dual-diagnosis treatment catering to men 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 clear need in the community, extensive evidence-based research, and the evaluation of the interaction between a wide-range of ages and interests of our male clients over Destination Hope’s existence.
Mature Adult Program (MAP) Features
MAP assists approximately twenty men at any given time and consists of eight hours of programming per day, which includes individual, family and group therapy sessions. Destination Hope recognizes that clients in this program have jobs and family matters to tend to, so they give them time to work with their case manager to make sure they can meet their responsibilities outside of treatment.
It boils down to motivation and severity of consequences. This living environment is conducive for recovery, learning and dealing with life-changing consequences.
Clients enrolled in the Mature Adult Program, will also have full access to appropriate adjunctive therapies through our wellness and NeuroHealth Centers:
- Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
- Massage therapy
- Nutrition Counseling
