The first part of our approach is a complete physical and mental evaluation of the participant. This assures everyone they can physically fulfill all that will be required of them in the program. The cognitive evaluation also helps us get a baseline of where they are and what their program needs to consist of.
Your loved one will go throughout the wilderness therapy program for several weeks. This program includes various aspects of therapy such as group therapy, counseling with family members, self-reflection, and peer-level interaction. We also work on communication skills, life skills such as cooking and navigating the wilderness and sheltering out in the campsites. All daily distractions and stressors are removed so that your child can focus on healing and wholeness.
