Here at WinGate, our teenage clients are challenged by daily hiking, primitive hard skills development, backpacking, shelter building, and outdoor living. As they become proficient in these challenging activities they build a sense of confidence and community. They learn to overcome hardship and find pride and satisfaction in their hard work and extraordinary efforts. As they begin to see changes in little things, they will learn how to apply that same tenacity and determination in all aspects of their life and therapeutic journey.

Teenagers and young adults are abusing prescription painkillers at a rate 40 percent higher than what would be expected for their age group. This makes the wide availability of pills really dangerous for people between the ages of 15 to 27 who are driving the prescription drug abuse epidemic.

Some kids’ only goal concerning their sense of self is to not become either of their parents.  These young people, in search of who to be, adopt an “anti-identity.” Basically, this amounts to anticipating what you want your child to do and her simply doing or saying the opposite. Often this leads to problems that may need your intervention.
