Can someone tell me about these is it permanent, can you leave for awhile, or is it like a hospital.

I live in a group home for girls that the age range is from 15 to 19. I am 18 years old and have been here since I turned 16. They are not permanent. The group home I am in has 8 girls including me and we all have some sort of background of past trauma in our lives. We have daily therapy sessions, both individual and group and also have art and music therapy as well.

This is for mental health issues of a wide array. Like I said there are 8 girls including myself and we all deal with different mental health issues stemming from our childhood upbringing. I am not sure if there are permanent groups homes, but this one is not. Once I turn 20 years old I can no longer stay here. Now my case worker and therapist may transfer me to another group home at that point I don't know or they may decide that I am able to live on my own.

I do suppose there are many that are permanent group homes , but the one that I am currently in is for girls that are ages 15 to 19. Once I turn 20 and I am currently 18 , my case worker and therapist I suppose will decide if I need to be transfer to another group home or if I am capable of living on my own with them overseeing things.

No I was just looking into a place where I could relate to people. I think I'm going to back out of it.

If you feel it would be the right fit though for you then why not at least look into it?

Well that is not an issue at the Group Home I am at as all 8 of us girls are between the ages of 15 and 19 and the legal smoking age here in in my State in the United States is 21. So we can't smoke anyway. I do know one of the girls did smoke illegally when she arrived and was given the patches , but now at least I don't think she even uses that anymore.
