Simply defined, rites of passage is the transition from one stage to another; it is also a very effective approach to a unique empowerment therapy for those with any number of emotional and/or behavioral concerns. Understanding making change in behavior is not a quick undertaking, a dedicated team of doctors, therapists, counselors, nutritionists, life skills coaches and other educators use the wilderness not only as a therapeutic tool but as their office. Offering an expedition based wilderness therapy introduces alternative activities to help remove an individual from one role and prepare them for another.
When introduced to a new, 'out of the box' situation, most people will rise to the challenge and become stronger and more confident in themselves. When left to their own devices in the wilderness, individual will build on the skills and abilities they already possess to overcome the natural obstacles the will face. One stage at a time, clients will be empowered to break any destructive habits, reconnect with themselves, their family and begin to make healthier choices.
