It is most likely pretty rare that it is just happen stance or plain bad luck that encourages people to make poor choices or develop poor behaviors. When these poor choices are made and poor behaviors are developed, there are usually other circumstances preventing the individual from changing those behaviors. Accessing the feelings and emotions individuals may be warding off or avoiding through their bouts of depression, alcohol or drug abuse, overeating or other poor behaviors is crucial to the process of changing these behaviors. At Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy in North America, we assist our students to gain access to these often hidden feelings and emotions.
At Rites of Passage NW, we employ a wide range of therapies which may include;
- wilderness treks and adventures
- intense but nurturing one on one, group and peer to peer therapy
- life skills training
- health and wellness holistic foods program
- a rites of passage model of therapy
- a unique empowerment approach to therapy
- transitional employment
- daily tasks and chores
- equine therapy
By combining many of these therapies in our programs, we are able to assist our students with unlocking those feelings and emotions that may be at the root of their issues. With these factors identified, we can then begin to treat the whole individual and not just their symptoms.
Not only do our students learn to take responsibility for their own actions through wilderness therapy, they will gain a much healthier respect for themselves as well as others. They will learn to work cooperatively with others while regaining a sense of self. They will have the strength and ability to face their issues and make the necessary changes in their behaviors.
