Family Coaching Services

Family Coaching Services

Sky’s the Limit Fund (STLF) offers Family Coaching services to families that have received a wilderness grant. This program is for families who can’t afford traditional aftercare, such as a residential treatment center or therapeutic boarding school, for their youth upon graduating from a wilderness therapy program. Transitioning home from a wilderness therapy program can prove trying as old triggers and family dynamics come into play. 

This service is led by STLF Family Coaches.  The curriculum includes the family, student, collaboration with past and current mental health professionals, weekly phone calls, homework and psycho-educational materials. The coaches help the entire family stay on track, find local resources and provide someone to talk to when issues occur.  The hands-on approach helps guide families out of the pitfalls of relapse and into healthy, balanced family dynamics, and a life of success and independence for the youth.  This 12-week program is included with every wilderness therapy grant.
