Every now and then it’s nice to reminisce, back to the days of old when walking, running or riding a bicycle everywhere was common place. When imaginations were the power button to physical activities. Somewhere along the line of time however, priorities seem to have shifted and these activities turned into pressures. Pressures to succeed, to grow up faster, to buy a car. How many teens cope with these pressures is by making unhealthy life choices which in turn can cause emotional problems such as low self-esteem or depression. These issues can often lead to major health concerns such as obesity. Rites of Passage Wilderness Therapy can help stop this cycle of poor choices with effective weight loss programs for teens in North America – USA.
At Rites of Passage NW, our 4 phase program will give your teen ample time to understand themselves. They will learn they have the skills and abilities to overcome the many obstacles life has to offer. More importantly, they learn to deal with these challenges in a meaningful and healthier way.
Your teen will learn that it isn’t just about limiting what they eat but being mindful of what they’re eating. Incorporating our unique holistic food program in the therapy will not only prepare them to take responsibility for their meals while on their wilderness treks but when they leave the program as well.
Combining the many therapeutic facets of wilderness therapy with intense group and individual analysis allows for treatment of the whole individual. Understanding the cause or root of a problem can help find the solution.
