Adventure Therapy for Young Adults From North Carolina

Trails Momentum wilderness therapy for young adults from North Carolina

Adventure therapy can seem like an intimidating form of therapy for struggling young adults and their families. Many young adults who have little experience with the outdoors may be apprehensive about getting help in an outdoor setting. At Trails Momentum, this is very much taken into account.

Removing distractions such as social media and video games from your young adult’s life during their time at Trails Momentum can help them focus on how their behaviors affect others. Being surrounded by peers who have gone through similar experiences as your child creates a built in support system during this process. Struggling young adults who attend Trails Momentum wilderness therapy have come out of the process with lifelong friends.

During their stay at Trails Momentum, North Carolina young adults work with expert therapists to develop coping techniques in order to manage behavioral and emotional struggles.

Wilderness therapy works by extracting your young adult from their natural environment. Often, the environment of  home and school life can be a contributing factor to a young adult’s emotional and behavioral problems. For example, your child’s peers may be influencing their impulsive or defiant behavior. By removing your young adult from that environment, they are able to better focus on changing their behaviors for the better. Although Trails Momentum is not located in North Carolina, the physical distance from home allows for greater emotional and behavioral development.
