Outdoor Therapeutic Programs
Our team spends a majority of our time out in the field with providers exploring programs, meeting staff, and developing relationships with treating professionals. Our recommendations take into account all of the variations in treatment programs. We consider gender, age, presenting mental health issues, educational issues, prior treatment experiences, and family resources while researching our placement.
Outdoor Therapeutic Programs provide an out-of-the-box method of creating change, and are a completely different experience than a residential program. By incorporating nature itself as part of the therapeutic process, an adolescent or young adult can start to work through the varying issues that brought the family to a point of crisis. We look to Outdoor Therapeutic Programs for an initial assessment and intervention stage as we create a long term treatment plan for the family.
All of the Outdoor Therapeutic Programs we refer to are licensed and respected. Because of the nature of most wilderness programs, we truly tailor our choice based on specific therapists and groups, as this can vary wildly even within a particular program. Our team is in constant communication with the Outdoor Therapeutic Program staff to ensure the best care possible for our clients, and to start planning for the secondary placement.
