Wilderness Quest is a wilderness-based adolescent (14 to 17 years of age) and young adult (18 to 28 years of age) substance abuse/behavior treatment program located in Monticello, Utah. To achieve our objectives of life-long recovery and sobriety for our students, we deliver treatment based on a 12-step model through highly trained and dedicated field staff and counselors. The Wilderness Quest experience is typically comprised of 6 – 9 weeks of therapeutic treatment in a wilderness setting, followed by a 3-day modified Minnisota-style multi-family therapy session conducted at our facilites in Monticello. Workbooks and audio tapes are completed by family members while students complete two workbooks while in the field. Staff work under the direction of Licensed Substance Abuse Counselors that in turn work under the direction of a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family therapist. The company has evolved to it’s current status since its 1971 genesis as Expedition Outreach, Inc.. Students come from national and international locations, with as much as 90% of our clientele struggling with chemical dependency or substance abuse issues. Multi addictions are assesed and treated.
