Who We Are

Who We Are, Wilderness Treatment Program

RedCliff Ascent is a leader in providing clinically sophisticated wilderness therapy for troubled teens ages 13-17. For almost 20 years we have served thousands of troubled teens and their families, helping them realize their potential and rebuild their lives.

Families choose RedCliff because their troubled teens lack the coping mechanisms, competencies and discipline necessary to manage their lives at an age-appropriate level. In other programs, these struggling teens may only be labeled by their diagnoses, which may include ADHD, ODD, bipolar mood disorder, etc.  The RedCliff treatment protocol recognizes the child and the illness are two distinctly separate components. Each is specifically addressed in the therapeutic process.

Our wilderness therapy program helps the student and family understand how a specific cluster of symptoms associated with their diagnosis has impacted the student’s developmental progression.  RedCliff’s therapeutic model disrupts the developmental hiatus and reintegrates the student into an age-appropriate developmental progression.
