New Vision Wilderness’ strengths reside in the intensity of clinical interventions and a true Trauma Informed Care (TIC) model. NVW tailors the entire intervention process with the understanding that the field environment is a stressed environment. A focused, advanced neural science-based protocol allows for an effective and safe intervention for adolescents and young adults.

Fire building and mastery is a way to explore therapy here at New Vision Wilderness Therapy

Most residential treatments and wilderness programs offer 1 to 2 individual client sessions per week, at New Vision Wilderness we offer 3 individual sessions per week as well as multiple group therapy sessions each week. In addition to the individual and group therapy sessions our clinicians are trained in modern, cutting edge, and evidence-based interventions. Credentials of our clinical staff are updated frequently on our staff page, click here to visit the clinical staff pages.

We have clinicians in the field throughout the week, which broadens the intervening opportunity.
