Stories from the Journal:
The Impact of Wilderness Therapy

“Before I went into Wilderness Therapy, I was fragmented, lost, and completely disconnected from reality. I couldn’t trust anyone and all options seemed bleak until I received a full ride scholarship to attend. Upon arrival, I knew I had found my safe haven and I finally got the help I needed. Being fully immersed in nature, guided by passionate and empowering staff, and presented with situations where I could learn and grow has given me the strength to keep moving forward. I’ve gained so many tools and resources to be my best self and have safe, mutually beneficial relationships. I can confidently say my life has completely changed because of Wilderness Therapy, and I’m eternally grateful to all who supported me. We were often reminded that “You get what you put in” and to “Trust the process”. So if you are on the fence about going to the woods to heal, hold these words close to your heart, open your mind, step up, and get ready for change.”
