Exclamation Social Skills Training

Are there any options available as adults? There is "treatment" for children, but it seems resources for adults are lacking, at least where I am.

My social life is extremely depressing to me if I think about it. Going to a conventional therapist does not work for me, nor does any sort of medication. Its really caused by recurring patterns of behavior and inability to make meaningful connections with NTs.

I've done the exposure exercises as suggested by a therapist before even without the direction of a live therapist and to poor results. I have to admit after so many years I kind of just want to give up, but lack of emotional support is quite intolerable as I can't do life by myself, especially given my other problems.
