Troubled Teens and Wilderness Programs

MountainsWilderness programs, why are some people always so quick to say, “Your teen needs a good wilderness experience.”

Do you really understand what a wilderness program is? Do you understand that the majority of participants are asked to continue on to a Residential Treatment Center (RTC) or Therapeutic Boarding School (TBS) – which means your teen will be starting all over again with a new therapist as well as you paying all over again for start-up fees?

Why not start and finish in one place?

Well, some Educational Consultants will tell you that your child needs to be broken down first and wilderness can do that.

In reality, any quality RTC/TBS is designed to help with these type of teens. Some of these RTC’s and TBS programs actually have the first 21-30 days that are like a wilderness however your teen is working with the same team of counselors they will be working with for the next 6-8-12 months.  Another words – it’s one program without changing staff or campuses, and you won’t be paying second fees.

Be an educated parent, you will make wiser and better financial decisions for your family and teenager.
