About Phoenix Outdoor

A therapeutic wilderness program for teens, Phoenix Outdoor is designed specifically for adolescents struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Wilderness therapy is uniquely effective for adolescents who are abusing drugs and alcohol, particularly when other traditional forms of treatment have not produced the desired results.



At Phoenix Outdoor, teens are free from distractions such as television, telephones and visitors. Teens can't just walk out of treatment when they become frustrated with the process.



Collaborating with a peer group and trained instructors to live in a wilderness environment creates a bond that motivates adolescents to open up and share experiences and struggles that they face in common. The opportunity to reflect and consider how life may be different without drugs or alcohol is ongoing in a wilderness environment. Trained therapists help teens draw analogies between their wilderness experience and real life to give them insight and perspective.



Adolescents who have been unwilling to consider their situation or engage in traditional therapy will use their wilderness experience to gain insights that they had difficulty realizing back home.
