Program Description:

Our time-tested and proven wilderness therapy program helps troubled teens rediscover the values that are important to lead successful lives: family, responsibility, honesty, trust, and respect. For 20 years, we have been helping to facilitate long-term change in struggling teens.

Your child will participate in a backpacking and adventure expedition that combines the benefits of outdoor living, physical activity, and extensive psychotherapy. A therapist and other qualified and trained staff lead the expedition. Our company is employee-owned and operated. Our team is comprised of professionals who believe in the value of wilderness therapy and its ability to help facilitate long-term change in troubled teens. This site will show you how we can help your child.

At Catherine Freer Wilderness Therapy Programs we are committed to providing the highest quality and most therapeutically rich adolescent treatment programs available. Each year we help more than 300 families, not unlike your own, to find a solution for their child.

We offer three different programs to meet family’s needs. Each program is carefully designed and individually structured to provide fertile ground for positive lasting change for your child.

Wilderness Therapy Expedition – Here your child participates in a backpacking expedition that combines the benefits of outdoor living, physical activity, and extensive psychotherapy. A therapist resides with your child throughout the expedition. This creates an unmatched therapeutic relationship resulting in remarkable outcomes for children. This is our fundamental program that provides a life-changing experience that helps your child create a solid foundation upon which they can create a healthy future. The average length of stay is seven weeks.

Santiam Crossing School - At our outdoor therapeutic school, your child can resume academic study and continue their therapeutic growth in a positive peer culture consisting of students who have shared similar experiences, knowledge, and insight from participating in a therapeutic wilderness program. The average length of stay is six to twelve months.

Oregon Transition Homes - This program is ideal for adolescents who do not require the intensity of a residential treatment program, but who would not likely make appropriate behavior changes if they returned immediately home. Children live in a private home with a highly qualified and trained family. Adolescents benefit from living in a nurturing home environment, where they take part in family activities and there are clear and consistent rules and expectations.

At Catherine Freer Wilderness Therapy Programs, we are committed to providing the best, highest quality adolescent treatment programs. Our programs are designed to significantly change the attitudes and self-esteem of participants. Virtually all of our clients return home or go on to other programs or schools much less angry, frustrated, and prepared to work out responsible, successful approaches to their problems.

Our expectations for graduates are to:

-Accept the need to change
-Behave in a pleasant and courteous way with family members
-Comply with family rules regarding such things as curfew and friends
-Attend school regularly and work at their level of ability
-Quit any existing drug abuse and accept the help they need to stay clean and sober
-Accept responsibility for their own behavior and work to achieve their life goals
