At Trails Carolina, we use wilderness therapy to help get your child back on track and restore the family unit.
We bring your child back to nature in a wilderness therapy setting and address their problematic behaviors far from the chaos and distractions of modern life. Here they can focus on themselves and begin the healing process. Our multi-disciplinary team of caring expert staff guides each child with a physical, psychological and emotional path through wilderness therapy that helps your child renew their sense of self.
Trails Carolina’s wilderness therapy program was founded with a singular goal – to help families reconnect, heal, and thrive. Over the years, our approach has been shown to produce lasting, positive outcomes, delivering on that mission.
Each child that enters our campus is unique and brings their own needs and challenges. Immediately, we get to work making sure they receive the support they need, starting by introducing them to their single-gender, age-appropriate group they’ll be growing with.
These groups are led by experienced, licensed therapists who specialize in working with youth who fit their group’s profile exactly – and it shows. We also work to keep parents engaged along this powerful journey, empowering them to support and communicate effectively with their child when they return home.
