It is never easy for a parent to watch their child go through tough emotional trauma. No matter the cause, a teenager dealing with substance abuse problems, eating disorders, depression, anger, and anxiety is tough on everyone, from the teenager to the rest of the family. Parents may experience a lot of feelings as their child goes through tough times, such as helplessness and embarrassment. Parents may not know where to turn in times of trouble. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have developed therapies that we have found to work for troubled teens. With our camps for troubled young adults in North America – USA, we have found a way to make a difference in many families’ lives over the years.
When regular therapy or guidance just isn’t enough, we have our students go through therapies that help. Unconventional therapies such as equine therapy, wilderness therapy, and hiking therapy have been found effective to work when teens are having trouble. We also offer conventional therapies in conjunction with wilderness camps, such as group and individual therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Teenagers can be under a lot of stress, much more stress than an adult. A teenager’s stress is also different. They are not equipped with the coping skills or life experiences that an adult has, and they may appear to buckle, or “fall apart at the seams.” Here at Rites of Passage NW, we can help.
