It is never easy for a parent to watch a child go through hard times. When those hard times are in the arena of alcohol and drug use or abuse, parents may have a hard time coming to terms with their child’s problem as well as being faced with the fact that they do not know where to turn to get help. School guidance counselors and weekly therapy may be a good start, but for some troubled teens, it simply isn’t enough. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we offer a long term rehab center in North America – USA that helps troubled teens rediscover themselves and how great life can be without the use of alcohol or drugs.
Part of what makes our program so special is the combination of therapies that other programs simply don’t have. Teenagers will participate in conventional therapies, such as group therapy with their peers and individual counseling, but will also have unique therapy experiences, such as equine therapy, wilderness therapy, rites of passage therapy, and more. In our program, teens will also learn about accountability and responsibility, and how to be an active, goal-oriented member of society.
They will learn how to be part of a team, and are expected to participate in daily chores while here. Our students are also expected to volunteer in the local community, and find gainful employment post-program. Just imagine the level of stress that an adult goes through, compound it, and that is often the amount of stress that a teenager is under. Without adequate coping skills, many turn to alcohol or drugs.
Here at Rites of Passage NW, we teach children how to redirect that behavior.

A compassionate, caring staff member is ready to answer any and all questions, and get troubled teens back on the road to recovery.
