Mid-Life Transition Issues

Mid-Life Transition Treatment at Promises

Many people in mid-life feel unusually irritable, tired or bored. To cope, they may turn to drugs or alcohol, have affairs, seek attention in unhealthy ways, or engage in other compulsive behaviors. Many need help managing these complex mid-life issues and making decisions for the future that resonate with their evolving goals and changing definition of self.

At Promises, mid-life transition issues accompany many of the conditions we treat such as drug and alcohol abuse and intimacy disorders. Our expertly trained staff work with clients to address mid-life issues and other concerns that underlie unhealthy coping mechanisms. We create a supportive and nurturing environment for clients working through mid-life transition issues where they feel comfortable sharing among peers. Clients develop healthy boundaries, become grounded, and work hard to reclaim their lives and their sense of selves.

Our intimate clinical programs, which are kept intentionally small, offer intensive, individualized therapy coupled with alternative treatments and time for self-care. We use behavioral therapy and mind/body methods to reduce anxiety, stress and depression.

About Midlife Transition Issues

Moving through life’s natural course can present issues. Mid-life transition typically happens between the ages of 40 and 50, though it can happen earlier or later depending on the individual. Common issues and questions faced in mid-life include:

  • Health complications
  • Caring for aging parents and/or teenage children
  • Coping with the loss of loved ones
  • Adapting to an “empty nest” as children move away from home
  • Career changes, financial turmoil and retirement planning
  • Feeling discontent with life, even though a person has been generally content for many years
  • Lack of interest in activities and people that have played a major role in one’s life
  • A hunger for change to do something different
  • Confusion about what one wants, who one is  or where they are headed
  • Questions about life’s meaning and purpose
  • Doubts about the choices one’s made in the past
  • Feeling pressure to do and be everything “before it’s too late”

Do You Need Help With Mid-Life Transition?

Without help, mid-life challenges can lead to a crisis. If you’re experiencing the following issues, you may want to consider mental health treatment:

  • Extreme changes in diet or sleep patterns
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness
  • Feeling exhausted much of the time
  • Loss of interest in usual activities
  • Suicidal thinking or behavior
  • Extreme irritability or anger
  • Drug or alcohol abuse

Making poor decisions at this critical stage could have lifelong repercussions for your relationships, finances and health. If you’re struggling with mid-life transition issues, you’re not alone. At Promises, you can work through these challenges with the support of peers facing similar issues and a team of caring mental health professionals.
