Beyond the TrekEnrollment is now open for 2017 programs.
This program offers longer-term treatment for young adults coming out of the trek programs, or who need continuing care. Our Ranch program is designed specifically for young adults who want to get clean and healthy. Our structured daily schedule involves ranch chores, volunteering in the local community, attending school, holistic meals and trek expeditions.

Rites of Passage Ranch is a therapeutic treatment center in Washington. With three- and six-month extended-stay continuing care programs, the Ranch provides students with a safe, stable and supportive environment for recovery.
The Ranch is “home base,” and students have a daily routine that clears away distractions and challenges them to confront their issues in a healthy way. An integral component of the therapeutic process is our solid wilderness adventure trek program, which guides students toward self-reliance, self-respect, patience and maturity. In addition to wilderness expeditions, we integrate equine therapy, holistic nutrition and transitional work programs that focus on long-term sobriety and spiritual wellness. Students develop and strengthen the physical, emotional, and social muscles they need to recover and chart a new course for their lives.

We believe that we live and work on recovery as a community, and, while ultimately the journey toward sobriety is a personal one, it is best undertaken in the company of friends. The value of support systems cannot be underestimated.
