While WinGate Wilderness Therapy may be located outside the state of South Dakota, WinGate happily accepts struggling young adults from all over the country.

Wilderness Therapy Programs provide young adults with highly effective experiential treatment, combined with traditional individual and group therapy 24 hours each day. Struggling young adults have a much greater capacity to develop interpersonal relationships with peers and staff, while taking in the serenity of the nature around them.

Numerous studies have proven that mental health issues and behavioral issues are significantly reduced when treatment takes place in a natural environment. Additionally, overcoming the natural obstacles provided by the wilderness builds self-efficacy and self-esteem in the participating young adults.

In general, wilderness therapy programs do provide therapeutic benefits to struggling young adults in South Dakota just by being in a natural environment. However, typical programs do not always address the specific issues that the participating young adults are struggling to overcome. WinGate is different and is far from being the typical wilderness program.

Therapists and staff members at WinGate reach out to struggling young adults with a proven no-resistance approach. WinGate is unique in the manner in which it takes humanistic approaches to wilderness therapy. They challenge each young adult with such subtlety that they do not know they are being challenged. Having a non-traditional curriculum further gets through a typical young adult’s resistance to authority, allowing therapists and staff members to gain clinical information while promoting internal growth and healing.

Consultants from WinGate Wilderness Therapy are available to guide and coach parents into finding the right wilderness therapy program for their particular situation.

WinGate Wilderness Therapy - Teens happy recovering at therapeutic program for youthWhy Wilderness Therapy?

Wilderness therapy programs provided struggling young adults with an experiential treatment that have been proven to be highly effective, as well as traditional individual and group therapy 24 hours each day. One of the most notable aspects of wilderness therapy programs is the fact that many distractions that are recurrent in traditional therapeutic programs (e.g., mobile devices, internet) are not permitted. This means that the young adults within the program will have far fewer distractions and, thus, will remain focused on their recovery goals and therapeutic treatments.

Additionally, outdoor activities within nature are proven to have scores of psychological and physical health benefits. Troubled young adults have a much greater capacity to build interpersonal relationships while being in the wilderness. This allows the young adults to gain personal insight into their behavior and, therefore, being able to make changes more quickly. This is achieved by overcoming the natural obstacles that the wilderness provides which, in turn, builds self-efficacy and improves self-esteem.

The therapists and staff members at WinGate Wilderness Therapy reach out to struggling young adults using a proven no-resistance approach. WinGate is unique in the way it takes a humanistic approach to wilderness therapy. They challenge each participant in subtle ways that result in them not being aware that they are being challenged.

Since young adults often build up resistance toward authority and authority figures, the non-traditional curriculum implemented by WinGate enables them to get around the resistance of the young adults in the program. This enables the staff to gain clinical information, while simultaneously promoting personal growth and healing.

Consultants from WinGate Wilderness Therapy are available to guide and coach parents of troubled young adults in their search for the optimal wilderness therapy program to fit their situation. Call (800) 560-1599 today!
