Frequently Asked Questions About Empower My Teen and Wilderness Therapy Placement

What is wilderness therapy program, and how does it help a struggling, or troubled teen?

Wilderness therapy combines outdoor activities with therapeutic intervention to address emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues, promoting personal growth and healing.

Wilderness therapy has been used successfully for several decades as a therapeutic approach for troubled teens. It emerged as a treatment modality in the 1970s. It gained recognition as an effective intervention for adolescents facing various emotional and behavioral challenges. Unlike boot camps, which focus on discipline and control, wilderness therapy programs emphasize personal growth, self-discovery, and therapeutic intervention in a natural, outdoor setting.

The most effective wilderness therapy programs incorporate evidence-based practices and adapt to the needs of each participant. The program’s success varies based on program design, daily practices, staff qualification, and the teen’s willingness to participate and engage in the therapeutic process.

Therefore, for their child to succeed, parents must thoroughly understand the program’s methodology and reputation.
