It is not known what specifically causes behavioral problems in teenagers. While some experts say it’s nature, others say nurture. At Rites of Passage NW, we are committed to simply making life better for troubled youth, regardless of from where it originated. We are well-versed in problems such as substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, anger, and anxiety, and are ready to help troubled teens get past that tough point in their lives. We have many different wilderness camps for troubled youth in Washington, where our students experience a different type of therapy as opposed to the conventional type.
However, we do believe in conventional therapy practices, such as group therapy and one-on-one therapy. Our students also learn wilderness and life skills, and experience different types of therapies like equine and rites of passage therapy. For some parents that have exhausted their efforts, our wilderness camps help bring their troubled teens happiness and joy again.
Just imagine the stress experienced as an adult, and magnify it. The stress that a child undergoes may be insurmountable. With no learned coping mechanism and no life experience to base decisions on, they often turn to alcohol or drugs to help them feel better. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we want them to envision a better life without drugs or alcohol, and find joy in recovery.
For more information about our camps for troubled youth in Washington, or to make an appointment or consultation, call Rites of Passage NW at (800)794-0980 to speak with an experienced and caring staff member to help make a difference in the child’s life. We want all troubled teens to recover and blossom into happy, healthy, and prosperous adults.
