As an alternative to traditional talk therapies, individual experiences offer adolescents and adults motivation for change and transforms intention into action. Using wilderness as a teacher and guided by our staff, these intensive experiences focus on clinical goals developed by you, our staff and any other practitioner involved in your journey. Individuals have the opportunity to reflect, develop insight, define and move towards personal healing goals in a setting that is removed from the distractions of modern culture. While the focus of these experiences is the individual, family participation is often encouraged in this process.
The Individual Experience can include the prescriptive use of:
- Rock Climbing
- Floating a river
- White water paddling
- Spelunking / Caving
- Solo experience
- Camp craft
- Primitive skills
- Adventure based games
- Equine experiences and trips
Individual Experiences are intended for those looking to develop insight into:
- Substance use
- Life Transitions
- “Re-up” with wilderness Therapy
- Family disruption
