Wilderness Therapy Programs For Troubled Teens

Wilderness therapy programs for troubled teens are outdoor adventure therapeutic options designed to assess the underlying issues that have led to the problematic behavior. What is problematic behavior? General defiance toward authority, experimenting or abusing drugs, poor academic performance, lacks motivation toward school, family, and normal interests like sports or music.  This troubled boy or troubled girl is hanging out with the wrong crowd, is uncoachable (is not listening to parents or other close adult authority), and is angry, depressed, or anxious.  If you have a troubled teenager "in-crisis" and you need immediate help, call Zion Educational Systems. Our Educational Consultants are able to help you navigate through your therapeutic options. ZES represents the very best wilderness therapy programs in the US. For more information about the top wilderness therapy programs call us today at (866) 471-8579.

But don't stop there.  You have some due diligence to do.  Be prepared to help the ZES Educational Consultant complete an assessment and evaluation.

Therapeutic Wilderness programs for troubled teens are unique therapy programs that take place in the wilderness.  In the wilderness there are no distractions (friends, boy friends, girl friends, cell phones, texting, party's, etc.).  In the undistracted wildenress troubled kids are able to get to the bottom of their issues.  They also bond well with the professional counseling staff. Therefore, the professional staff are able to assess the underlying issues that have led to the problematic behavior. Moreover, because of the bonding between the camper and the staff the troubled teens learn to trust and respect the "authority".  In the wilderness troubled teens listen and follow (they become coachable), willingly participate on their own accord.  ZES represents the very best wilderness therapy programs.
