Dragonfly Transitions is a young adult program located in Southern Oregon. It is designed with progressive phases and a variety of living environments based on student interest and readiness. We work with students to support the transition into healthy young adult life with independence and autonomy. Dragonfly offers the opportunity for real-world experience while providing a stable, supportive environment where students can flourish. Students can attend college, volunteer, work and engage in a variety of fitness and recreational activities. The overarching goal is to support students in a sustainable and meaningful life path. No two paths are the same.

Three Distinct Campuses

Dragonfly Transitions has three locations in Southern Oregon – Klamath Falls, Ashland, and The Homestead. Part of the admissions process is to explore with the student, the family, and referring professional which site is the most appropriate to start.

Ashland is located in southern Oregon at the convergence of the Cascade and Siskiyou Mountains. It is a vibrant community offering a variety of experiences.

Therapeutic Services

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 every day to support the structure of Dragonfly.

Dragonfly Transitions offers three family workshops throughout the year. This is an integral part of the treatment process and provides opportunities for intensive family and group sessions.

Student Perspectives

Each Dragonfly Transitions student has a unique background and personality. Typically, they are young men and women between the ages of 18 and 25.

Many have fallen off the average developmental curve due to drug and alcohol use, over use of technology, a mood disorder, learning differences, identity issues, body image issues, family breakup, significant loss, and/or trauma.

Dragonfly Experiences

Exploration of nature and what the world has to offer is key to self-exploration and becoming a more well-rounded and balanced person. Our adventure program provides students with the opportunity to develop confidence in themselves to experience and do things they may never have tried otherwise.

Dragonfly trips combine community service, relaxation, exploration, and adventure. These trips bring the community closer together while expanding the life experiences of students.
