It can be absolutely heartbreaking for a parent to watch their child go through something tough. When it is something that a parent has no experience with, such as alcohol or drug abuse, parents may feel helpless and not know where to turn. School guidance counselors and weekly therapy will help some kids, but not all. Some troubled teens require a more advanced and intense type of therapy to get them on the right track, and to help them rediscover life without the use of alcohol or drugs. Here at Rites of Passage NW, our long term rehab center in the NW has helped thousands of troubled teens get their life back.
Part of the reason for our success rate is the combination of therapies we provide. Teens will have traditional therapy such as one-on-one counseling and group therapy with their peers, but this is combined with unique therapy such as wilderness therapy, rites of passage therapy, equine therapy, and more. Our students also learn about accountability and responsibility while here, and are expected to participate in daily chores, as well as volunteer in the community. Just imagine the type of stress that an adult goes through and magnify It, and that can often be the stress of a teenager. However, teens don’t have adequate coping skills like adults do, and may turn to alcohol or drugs. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we like to put more tools in their toolbox, so to speak.
