Best Wilderness Therapy Programs Alternative

At WinGate Wilderness Therapy, troubled teens undergo the therapy and treatment they need for recovery from substance abuse, anxiety, depression, aggression, or poor academic performance. All this from an outdoor environment that is favorable to restoring a teen's mental health. Given the chance to reconnect with their true self in an atmosphere that is free of disturbances and negative influences, teenagers often change more rapidly versus in a traditional residential treatment program.

WinGate Wilderness Therapy - Teenagers enjoying therapeutic benefits of outdoors at wilderness programAt WinGate, our troubled teen students profit from a combination of experiential, individual, and group therapy, that teaches the life skills they need to develop and mature into a self-sufficient adult. The WinGate philosophy is based on the Arbinger “Choice” Program. This teaches teenagers to view others, such as their parents or siblings, as people instead of as objects that can be used to get what they want. Our teen students who struggle with addiction are also introduced to the 12 steps philosophy, and the effects are nothing short of exceptional.

As one of the top wilderness programs in the United States, WinGate was established by a group of seasoned wilderness therapists, and leaders in the industry, who believe that in order for at-risk teens to make lasting changes, they need to feel appreciated, respected, safe.

The professional consultants at WinGate Wilderness Therapy are available to privately coach and guide parents of struggling adolescents. Call (800) 560-1599 today for assistance!
