Transitional Aftercare Programs for Troubled Teens or Young Adults

Transitional aftercare treatment troubled teens young adultsOur transitional aftercare programs for troubled teens and young adults sets us apart from all other wilderness therapy programs.

At WinGate, we recognize that our programs may not be all that a student needs to integrate the changes necessary for ongoing recovery.

We take the aftercare development plan very seriously.

Essentially, in almost every case their is a next step, and preparation for the transition is critical for long term success.  The teen transitional program is much different than that of the young adult transitional plan. The transitional plan must be customized for each client.

When it comes to the transtion from wilderness program to the next step of the journey we take an ultimate individualize approach, meeting the specific needs of each client and his or her family.

"...the transitional aftercare plan for the client is as important as any other service we offer..."

One of the strongest areas of our programs is the unique way we work to transition our clients into their next step. Whether its an aftercare program (such as a therapeutic boarding schools), sober living program, or back home, we work hard to make sure that the move is a transitional success. 

The transitional plan has to be as smooth as possible to ultimately reinforcement of all that the client has learned. We want to make sure that our clients keep up the momentum they build in the wilderness. In order to make our client transitions as seamless as possible, we have designed certain program elements.

Transition Plan Takes Into Consideration Critical Elements

  • We work to maintain contact and communication with the client’s previous mental health provider.
  • We communicate with educational consultants or interventionists on a regular basis, producing a mid-stay report on the client that helps them decide the right placement for after wilderness.
  • If a client decides to go to an aftercare program, we get that program’s information to help the student be informed about the expectations of where they are going after wilderness.
  • We request and help the client begin the first level or the initial work of an aftercare program.
  • If clients are transitioning back home, we work to develop a strong aftercare plan including relapse prevention.
  • We work with the client’s home therapist to help maintain continuity after widerness.
  • If clients are referred for a brief “tune-up” stay by another program, we make sure that client does the work they are expected to and returns to their program promptly, motivated and prepared.

This aspects of our program help make sure that our clients leave well-prepared for life after wilderness and ensures that clients will continue the progress they have made in the wilderness.
