RedCliff Ascent covers an area of approximately 1000 square miles. RedCliff is not a boot camp, adventure camp, or any other kind of camp. As a wilderness therapy program or more accurately an Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare program, our model of teen help is based on respect, trust, and the understanding that your child is more than just the problems they are facing or the diagnosis they have been given. Because of this belief, we provide an Integrated Care approach that focuses not just on alleviating distress but promoting health and wellbeing.
Founded in 1993, RedCliff is different from any other kind of wilderness therapy program. We offer a superior level of clinical and family treatment that is unmatched.
Therapy at RedCliff is not just traditional therapy in the wilderness. It is the clinical use of the outdoor and natural environment to achieve the clinical and personal growth goals of the family and teenager.
Why Wilderness Treatment Works for teens.
Nature and the outdoors have been used for centuries by nearly every culture as a place for change and personal growth. Our licensed clinicians recognize the past uses of the outdoors and integrate what has worked in the past and what is known now about change and wellbeing. The integration of past traditions and counseling theories of change are the foundations for RedCliff’s wilderness therapy program.
Our goal is to provide solutions to the struggles you face at home with your struggling teen. Especially, when other options have been unsuccessful. With emotional distress and addiction on the rise and problems at home and school are increasing, wilderness treatment continues to grow as a necessary treatment and effective therapy option for teens and families. We can help you, and your troubled teen, build new paths to success.
