Being a teenager is hard enough without additional problems, yet many teens have to come to terms with serious problems such as anxiety, depression, and obesity. Bullying can make already existing anxiety and depression worse. It can make it tough to get up in the morning, and even go to school. Teens may not know where to turn for help, or may feel embarrassed. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have specialized weight loss programs for kids in Washington that can help build self-esteem and keep the weight off. With many different component to our program, teens that successfully complete leave much healthier, happier lives after learning better habits.
Diet is a major component of our program. Here, teens will eat a completely holistic diet, and will also learn how to calorie count and meal plan. We teach that healthy food can taste good, and that dieting and eating right doesn’t have to be a bore.
Therapy is also a large portion of our program. While here, teens will attend both group and individual sessions to not only talk about obesity, but underlying factors and causes as well. We have learned that a patient must get to the root of the problem to progress past the problem.
Exercise is another part of our program. As opposed to just going to work out in the gym, our teens can explore the wilderness, going on adventure hikes and treks, and learning survival skills. Exercise doesn’t have to be boring and mundane – it can be fun and rewarding.
