When parents are dealing with teenagers that are battling alcohol and drugs problems, the feelings involved can be that of heartbreak and helplessness. Teens with persistent substance abuse problems may be running out of options, and parents may be tired of taking their kids to weekly therapy, local detoxes, or rehabs. Those that are diagnosed with a combination substance abuse problem and conduct disorder may face deeper problems, especially if the issues are not eradicated prior to adulthood. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we offer wilderness therapy for substance conduct disorder treatment so our teens and their families can get back to living a normal life.
Conduct order can manifest itself in many different ways, and is the precursor to antisocial behavior when a teen reaches adulthood. Conduct disorder can have many other co-occurring disorders exist with it, such as ADHD, and learning disabilities. If not arrested, conduct disorder can be a very serious problem.
Wilderness therapy can help first of all with a complete environment change. Rites of Passage NW is a working ranch, and here our teens live off of the land, so to speak. They will learn how to grow their own crops, harvest them, and cook their own food from those crops. We also combine regular and conventional therapy here with other unique experiences, such as equine therapy, rites of passage therapy, and wilderness therapy. There are no cell phones allowed here and there is no Internet. Teens learn about accountability and responsibility. We truly get back to basics.
