Beginning With The End in Mind – Wilderness Therapy in a Residential Treatment Center

Research demonstrates better post-treatment outcomes when youth participate in wilderness therapy in conjunction with clinical therapy in residential treatment. This addition of adventure therapy here at Ozark Trails Academy is consistent with that research and is what is going to help your teen start to reconnect with his/herself, you and others.

This is part of the beauty of our unique location – there is so much to do here that the experiences themselves end up doing the teaching for us. These experiences along reflection as a group and alone are designed to help your teen to process emotions, examine their own behavior, interact socially, develop relationships and improve self-esteem.

These types of experiences can help your teen start to make real, lasting change, the kind that comes from deep in the heart.
