It is an absolute fact that some, not all, teens experiment with alcohol and drugs. For many teens, fortunately, experimentation is where it ends. They discover that the world of alcohol and drugs is not for them, and simply move on, getting back to normal life. Unfortunately, other teens get caught up in drinking and using, and can’t seem to find their way out. Alcohol and drug usage often leads to problems with the law. At this point, parents may feel helpless, not knowing what to do or where to turn. Weekly therapies and school guidance counselors are not enough to keep their teen on the “straight and narrow.” Here at Rites of Passage NW, we offer wilderness therapy for substance juvenile delinquents in Washington that helps teens live a life free of alcohol and drugs, getting them on the road to recovery.
Our wilderness therapy program helps teens get back to basics. In addition to conventional therapy such as group and individual therapy, our teens experience wilderness therapy, equine therapy, and rites of passage therapy during their stay here, learning camping and survival skills.
As a completely working ranch, our teens also learn about gardening and farming, and how to take care of the many animals here at Rites of Passage NW. Teens also learn about accountability and responsibility, and are expected to volunteer in the neighborhood, find gainful employment, or take online schooling during their stay here. We also rigidly allow no Internet or cell phone usage on our site.
We feel that by getting back to basics, teens can recover. To learn more about wilderness therapy for substance juvenile delinquents in Washington, or to hear more about Rites of Passage NW, please call us today at (800)794-0980 to speak with a professional member of our staff.
