Wilderness therapy programs sometimes referred to as Outdoor Education, have proven themselves to be exceptional catalysts for change in troubled children and teenagers. Because of our reputation for quality, safety and longevity, many of Aspen’s wilderness programs have been highlighted in TV documentaries and written about in the national media. This unique experience can be described as a “rite of passage,” a transformational process that is difficult to find in our fast-paced, modern society. Our therapists and counselors guide teens toward self-reliance and self-respect. The impact of these programs on troubled teens with such behavioral problems as low self-esteem, poor school performance, defiance of authority, depression, and drug or alcohol abuse has been well documented. Parents can feel confident that their children will get the treatment and care they need at Aspen’s Outdoor Therapy Wilderness Programs. For international inquiries, click here.

The Aspen Institute for Behavioral Assessment – Syracuse, Utah

Sometimes, a teenager presents a challenging and often perplexing picture for their parents. Other professionals have been unable to diagnosis their problems and therefore create a treatment plan. Subsequently, their future remains uncertain. The Aspen Institute for Behavioral Assessment is a unique resource by bringing clarity of diagnosis and optimal intervention options. We conduct all of the assessments necessary to gather and assemble a treatment plan and provide recommendations regarding the best possible follow-up care for adolescents relative to their diagnostic picture.
