BLUE RIDGE WILDERNESS

“The wilderness is healing, a therapy for the soul”. -Nicholas Kristof

While at Blue Ridge, our clients rediscover the pathways to their strengths and resilience through primitive living in nature while supported by experienced field instructors, skilled licensed therapists, and a healthy peer culture and community. Nestled in the foothills of Northeast Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, the Blue Ridge approach supports teens to reconnect with the best version of themselves. The simplicity of life in the wilderness creates a gentle pressure and metaphorical mirror for the challenges our clients face at home. Combining traditional, evidence-based therapies with a unique wilderness experience, Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness provides adolescent and their families a powerful setting for hope, change, and healing.

We invite you to explore this life changing opportunity for your child to break free from daily distractions and pressures, reset and improve physical and emotional wellness, connect with community on a deeper level, live in the present moment, and embody the authentic expression of oneself.

Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness provides the bestexperience and environment for our students’ success.

Reinforcing the intake assessment process early in a student’s stay results in stronger case conceptualization, more tailored treatment, and clearer goals established for transition and discharge planning.

WHOLE BODY HEALTH & WELLNESS

We focus on mind, body, and spirit, with an emphasis on nutrition, physical exercise, and mindfulness. A reset to their physical and emotional health promotes healing and wellness.
