Watching your child struggle with any trouble or obstacle in their life can be extremely challenging for most parents. For parents that have a child that is struggling with drug, alcohol or any other type of substance abuse problem can make many parents feel helpless and that they have nowhere to turn or anyone to talk to. While school counselors can help, they are many times overwhelmed with the sheer size of their caseload and may not have the time for weekly therapy sessions. At Rites of Passage Wilderness Therapy, we offer long term care program in the Northwest that has proven to be a smart treatment option for teenagers that are trapped in the depths of addiction or substance abuse issues. Our treatment program combines customized and conventional therapies for each individual allowing each participant to have a unique and wonderful experience to help build them back up.
While we do still offer many conventional therapy techniques such as one-on-one treatment sessions as well as group treatment sessions, our unique opportunities such as wilderness therapy, equine therapy a well as rites of passage therapy. Individuals that participate in our long-term program will learn how to work as a team, learn how to gain employment as well as volunteering out in the community to help gain valuable social and life skills while working with peers and other adults. The staff at Rites of Passage helps each individual rediscover who they are and how to live a full and complete life without the use of drugs or alcohol.
Comparing our stress as adults to those of a teenager is not comparable. If you take the daily stress of an adult and multiply that by quite a bit, it might give us an accurate picture of the stress a teenager deals with regularly. Unlike adults, teenagers very often lack the coping skills and techniques that are used to get each of us through a stressful day, however, here at Rites of Passage NW, we thoroughly are dedicated to helping each individual add more skills and coping mechanisms to help face life sober and with success.
