Wilderness Programs: Are They Right for Your Teenager?

MountainsWilderness programs, why are some people and Educational Consultants always so quick to say, “Your teen needs a wilderness experience- first.”

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.

Consistency is key to healing and especially recovering from those negative behavioral habits. When your teen has set his/her sights on completion in 6-9 weeks only to find out they are now going to yet another program, it can be a setback for them. I have heard this from many students.

As stated above, there are programs that can offer you the complete process. Learn more – we are here to educate you on this process.
