With the cost of groceries continuously on the rise, it is a never ending battle finding a balance between buying healthy foods and balancing the check book. As a result, we may find the grocery cart filled with foods high in sugar, fats and other ingredients not necessarily the healthiest for our families; especially for those continuously growing, hungry kids that are not as active as many parents would like them to be. Without even realizing it, as usually happens as kids grow, the poor diet and lack of exercise begins to show, not only the physical appearance of our kids but emotionally as well. At Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy, our weight loss programs for kids in Seattle can help change your child’s eating habits and set your family on a path to a healthier lifestyle.
At Rites of Passage NW, the weight loss experienced in our students while participating in our programs is a by product of the program itself. While here, our students learn about leading a healthier style of life. From the first time they meet their therapist to plan their program objectives, our students realize they hold the key to make the required changes to achieve their treatment goals.
Wilderness treks and adventures, taking responsibility for their own choices, acquiring new skills, drawing on their own strengths, learning to prepare delicious holistic foods, individual, group, peer to peer and even family therapies are all tools used to achieve their goals. Empowering our students to utilize these tools while participating in our programs, preparing to return home and sharing with their families a healthier style of life is our goal.
