Wilderness Therapy Program

At Trails Carolina, students step into the folds of the Blue Ridge Mountains and away from the overwhelming stimuli of their everyday world. At Trails, an adolescent develops new skills and resources to address the emotional, social, academic or neurological challenges that brought them to our wilderness therapy program. Through the expedition experience, students are empowered. Through academics and equine therapy, students leverage the power of wilderness therapy in other settings - further building their confidence and the ability to sustain change.

Trails is an excellent wilderness therapy program, with individuals throughout the organization who will bend over backwards to help your teen understand the importance of trust, responsibility and accountability while teaching communication skills to both parents and teens to improve family relationships. ~Elaine B.

Throughout this process families are supported and integrated. The commitment to family at Trails is so great that we have dedicated a full team of family therapists and staff to deliver family services through wilderness training and support.

At Trails we have brought together the best from wilderness and evidenced-based therapies to create a wilderness therapy program that is clinically driven and family focused.
