For the majority of youth, staying between those lines of ‘straight and narrow’ and ‘pushing it’ does not seem to be too much of a problem. Often, there may be a bit more movement toward the ‘pushing it’ line then most parents want to know about however, the majority tend to stay in the middle and make relatively good choices. Unfortunately, there are those youth, that due to circumstance, do cross that line and have a very difficult time getting back. Those circumstances may include negative influences, peer pressures or the presence of other behavioral or emotional issues. At Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy, camps for troubled youth in Seattle, we understand the devastating effects these circumstances can have on a young individual and their families.
From orientation to graduation our students are made to feel welcomed and treated with the respect every person deserves. At Rites of Passage NW our students know they are in a safe and stable environment, giving them the freedom to reach the treatment goals they have set for themselves with their on site therapist.
Our wilderness treks give students time to reflect on their behaviors and understand they are responsible for their own choices. Our wilderness adventures allow them the opportunities to use that responsibility wisely; while caring for their own shelter, water, healthy foods and navigation.
The challenges they face will empower them to use their strengths and abilities from within as well as the new skills learned to overcome them.
When ready to go home, your child will be prepared both physically and emotionally to deal with the obstacles life offers.
