Programs for Young Adults in Texas

WinGate Wilderness Therapy - Young adult depressed seeking therapy from treatment facilityAs a top Treatment Program for Troubled Young Adults, WinGate Wilderness Therapy helps young adults from Texas, struggling with substance abuse, addiction, depression, personality disorder, motivation issues, and more. Although WinGate may be located outside of Texas, we accept young adults from all over the United States.

When a young adult enters a wilderness therapy camp, they are leaving their unhealthy environment behind for a remote setting that allows them to focus on their current issues. Without distractions and negative influences, they can heal and gain insight into their past behaviors. During this time, they are able to develop the skills necessary to begin making better decisions in the future.

Therapeutic Wilderness Programs for Texas Young Adults

Wilderness Therapy incorporates several types of therapy, including adventure, experiential, group, and individual, that come together to help troubled young adults from Texas develop the confidence and life skills they need to return home and continue on a better path. Young adults struggling with substance abuse are also introduced to the 12 Steps and the relapse prevention skills to maintain their sobriety after returning home.

A three-year study found that young adults who attend wilderness therapy programs have a significant change in their dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors, while also significantly enhancing their life effectiveness. This is due in large part to the natural and restorative environment, as well as the group milieu, that helps shift their world views and provides innumerable opportunities for learning and growth.

WinGate Wilderness Therapy - Peaceful youth in recovery after wilderness therapy for young adultsThe Benefits of Wilderness Therapy

Wilderness Therapy requires troubled adults to leave behind their unhealthy environment and influences and enter a serene and healing setting that is entirely devoid of any distractions, including TV, radio, and phones. This allows the young adult to focus solely on why they are here and working to overcome their issues. In our small groups, young adults engage in therapy, while also developing their independent living skills.

It is a common misconception that struggling young adults who attend wilderness therapy programs are being punished. They are not. Instead, they are provided with a healing environment that is conducive to recovery and offers 24/7 treatment.

When young adults are placed in a difficult situation, it provides them with the opportunity to work through their issues and become the adult they want to be. They learn responsibility, self-reliance, leadership, and the importance of teamwork, while also enhancing their confidence. These are all things that are necessary for long-term recovery.
