Recommendations for wilderness therapy programs for troubled teens in Iowa?

Are wilderness therapy programs safe?  Do we recommend to parents of Iowa use wilderness therapy programs for troubled teens? Yes, and yes... but there is one big caveat. RestoreTroubledTeens recommends only the premier wilderness therapy programs for troubled teenagers. Why only the premier programs? Well, wilderness therapy programs are like airplanes. Would you fly in a broken down airplane (cheapest form of air travel)? Or, do you want only the best, safest, and trustworthy aircraft.  The same is true when it comes to wilderness programs.  Trust us... you only want to consider the safest therapeutic programs.  If you are a parent of a struggling child from Iowa we suggest that you call us.  We can help you find the most effective (and safe) wilderness program near Iowa.  Call 866-452-6321 and get help today.

With wilderness programs safety has to be the number one priority.  If the program does not put safety at the top of the priority list, we don't recommend them. The top wilderness programs offer hope and healing for struggling youth, both boys and girls, and their families. They present individual and group therapy, family therapy, and substance abuse counseling (addiction treatment) all while taking a trek through the mountains.  The wilderness experience is nothing less then phenomenal.  But we have to emphasize safety, because in the wilderness there is always risk.

When mom and dad are concerned about sending their child away to a "program", they have good reason to be worried.  Most therapeutic programs are 9 to 18 months long.  But wilderness programs are short-term, any where from 4 to 12 weeks long. Wilderness camps are intensive, but short in duration. The plain fact is that wilderness programs work. It's where miracles happen.  

There is something about "getting quiet" in the great outdoors. There is something powerful about connecting to our innermost self, getting to know who we really are deep down inside.  They call it, "getting real."  This can happen in the wilderness, where there are no modern day distractions (no cell phones, iPads, TV's, negative friends, Facebook, etc.).  Receiving therapy in the absolute beauty of God's creation is very powerful.   Sleeping outside underneath the stars, hiking through the mountains, starting a fire to keep warm and cooking your own meals that you carried on your back. Think about how your child will respond to a wilderness experience.

Its our desire to assist, guide, and coach parents of struggling children through a very difficult time. We are here to serve - there is hope - and you are not alone. We can help by bringing forth life changing results. Call and speak with our Admissions Department to begin your journey of restoration. 

Help for concerned parents in Iowa - Do we recommend wilderness therapy?

Parents of troubled teenagers from Iowa are no doubtedly concerned about their child's immediate well being.  They are also very concerned about their future. An, they should be.  Parents ask us all the time for a recommendation. They ask, "do you recommend wilderness therapy programs?" Our answer is, "absolutely!"  Wilderness camps have years of evidence-based outcome studies that point to miraculous results. Therefore, we do highly recommend wilderness therapy.

Raising a struggling teenager in Iowa can be the most difficult situation a parent could ever face.  We are here to help.  We suggest that parents consider wilderness programs near Iowa.  We believe these programs have greatly assisted young people to identify and work through their internal conflicts and emotional obstacles. These emotional obstacles have kept the child from responding well to parental efforts, support from the school, and, and therapeutic treatment.

Kids who respond well to wilderness are inherently good kids, and they have the ability to be successful. However, because of unhealthy misperceptions about themselves, emotional immaturity, substance abuse, or other emotional or behavioral issues they have struggled greatly and are in need of help.  If this is your son or daughter we can help.

Famous Quotes:   "Fortunately analysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist. Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life." Karen Horney "The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes." William James

Famous Quotes:  "Get correct views of life, and learn to see the world in its true light. It will enable you to live pleasantly, to do good, and, when summoned away, to leave without regret." Robert E. Lee  "The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes. An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding." Robert Louis Stevenson
