Therapeutic Services

The therapeutic milieu of Dragonfly is hands on, up close and personal. There are abundant opportunities to create an individualized therapeutic experience for students both inside and outside of a traditional session.

Students participate in individual and group therapy as well as family therapy during conference calls and family workshops. Psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and other services are provided to students as needed by Dr. Chad Brown. Students meet with staff mentors once per week and mentors are available everyday to support the structure of Dragonfly.

Academics

Most Dragonfly students have had difficulty developing or consistently executing the skills necessary to live a healthy, balanced, and successful life in college and beyond.

All students are encouraged to complete high school and continue their education at the post-secondary level — even if this is only to experience a few classes and learn what is required in terms of time management, study skills and self-discipline necessary to succeed educationally.

Vocation

We believe work is a great way for students to develop and explore new skills, learn to live a balanced life, and practice personal responsibility.

Dragonfly provides support for students who wish to work throughout their stay. Staff provide guidance through exploring interests and resume and interview workshops. Dragonfly Transitions provides structured vocational training through its cafe, A Leap of Taste.

A Leap of Taste

In February 2010, Mona and Glenn took ownership of A Leap of Taste to further the mission of Dragonfly. A Leap of Taste is a friendly environment for young adults in Dragonfly Transitions to acquire job skills, learn social responsibility, and build relationships within the Klamath Falls community.

A Leap of Taste employees are a mix of local Klamath Falls residents as well as students from Dragonfly Transitions. Throughout the week, local musicians and sometimes Dragonfly students perform live music. The café also hosts an occasional Open Mic Night.

Family Involvement

Dragonfly Transitions offers therapeutic services to facilitate change and healing in all family members who choose to participate. We have seen first-hand the power of family involvement in a student’s therapy. Families more willing to delve into therapy alongside their loved one can nurture more effective and lasting change.
