WinGate Therapeutic Approach & Theory
WinGate Wilderness Therapy Programs are the leaders in the field of wilderness treatment, employing a variety of effective clinical approaches in helping our teenagers and young adult clients on their recovery journey.
WinGate is designed specifically to employ the very best treatment approach for troubled teens and is designed to assist struggling young adults ages 18 -26.
These two very different programs focus on meeting the separate clinical needs of the two distinctly different age groups.
We also focus on the families. The needs of the students are different, and the needs of the families are different. We provide our families an individualized treatment approach and support their individual needs.
We specialize in working with teens and young adults who have dual diagnosis. When working with dual diagnosis we strongly believe in a systemic approach, which includes the family. Family treatment is imperative for long term success.
The clinical aspects of the WinGate approach include:
Our clinical team seeks to understand the underlying concerns that have led to the young person requiring our care and guidance. By understanding the whole person, rather than just a behavior, we can develop thorough and individualized treatment plans for him/her and the family to develop new and more effective strategies for future success.
WinGate serves young adults struggling with a variety of clinical, emotional, and academic issues. Our clinical team is experienced in working with a wide variety of clients but also have special expertise in addressing complex concerns that may arise. The strong clinical emphasis at WinGate makes certain that our clients improve in emotional and mental health during their stay and are well-prepared for the future.
