It can be heartbreaking for any parent watch their child go through hard times. When the hard times include alcohol and drug addiction, parents may simply not know where to turn. Addiction is a family disease, and parents can easily feel helpless or embarrassed. Parents may turn to guidance counselors and weekly therapists to help bring about change in their teen, but those types of therapies are not a good fit for everyone. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have a long term drug rehab center in the NW to help teens recover and learn how to live a life without drugs or alcohol.
Part of what makes our program so special is the unique combination of therapies we offer. Teens will participate in individual therapy with a counselor and group therapy with their peers, but will also get to experience therapies such as equine therapy, rites of passage therapy, wilderness therapy, and much more while here. By reconnecting with nature, teens can rediscover much of what they thought was missing n life. Our students also learn about responsibility and accountability while here, and are expected to volunteer in the community and take part in daily chores.
Teens will learn how to be a team player, and to better communicate with their peers and elders. Just imagine the type of stress that an adult goes through, and magnify it. Teens can be under a lot of stress, but don’t have the coping strategies to handle it. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we like to put more tools in their toolbox, so to speak.
