Programs for Troubled Youth

As parents we can recognize changes in our kids, right from when they are youngsters to well into their teen years and beyond. It isn’t just the typical changes seen as they grow but changes we may not be specifically be looking for. Changes such as behaving erratically and completely out of character or becoming withdrawn, sullen and silent. These types of changes can suggest there may be some outside sources influencing your child. It is very unfortunate that these influences may be damaging, negative sources that may need investigating. If at all possible, before these influences have a self-destructive impact on your child, it is important to seek out assistance. Rites of Passage NW, Wilderness Therapy programs for troubled youth may be the right choice for your child and your family.

As a whole, people generally perform better and feel better when they eat well, exercise and get a goods nights sleep.

At Rites of Passage, we combine health and wellness with mental health. Our programs are designed for our students to experience all three of these necessities for healthier living.

Programs for Troubled Youth


They will learn how to prepare nutritious meals and be responsible for their cooking. Between the quiet wilderness treks, the wilderness adventures and the daily mental and physical challenges, our students will receive a great deal of exercise. As a result, they will no doubt sleep very well each night in the shelters they are responsible to prepare.

Combining these activities/therapies with our intense but nurturing group and one on one therapies, your child will discover the strength and resources within themselves, allowing then to move forward in a healthy and positive manner.
