Expedition Therapy is a structured, intensive, hands-on, experiential, solution-focused experience for emerging young adults age 18+ who have yet to find a productive and intentional path in life.
Learning Essential Life Skills – One Expedition At A Time
The Expedition Therapy outdoor adventure experience provides participants with individualized therapy in the context of a back country skills and leadership course. Through a series of challenging weekly expeditions, Expedition Therapy students learn technical, organizational and time management skills, ultimately taking responsibility for planning and leading an expedition themselves. Combined with daily therapeutic goals and group discussions to strengthen the experience and outcomes, these challenging expeditions are integral to personal growth and development.
Discovering Who They Can Be – By Being It
As a result, our students experience and internalize a positive sense of self and gain increased confidence, learning to create balance in their lives, stay sober and reconnect with their authentic selves. At Expedition Therapy, we help young adults discover the inner focus, direction and motivation they need to move themselves forward in their lives.
