All Kinds of News for December 05, 2018
Summit Achievement, the original hybrid wilderness therapy program, has updated it services for young adults of all genders from ages 18-21, on its campus in Stow, Maine. Summits model is uniquely suited for younger, young adults who might not be as well served in programs that includes young adults over age 21. Summit Achievement combines class-room academics, three days a week, with adventure activities four days a week, with regular interventions with Summit’s team of licensed, experienced therapists to help young people move to a full and productive life. Summit also serves young adults, ages 18-21, on its Traverse Team (a short term therapeutic school model).
While addressing therapeutic needs younger, young adults will also be able to work on academic skills whether it be completing high school course work for a high school diploma or taking some on-line college courses. Summit also works with the young person’s family through our parent coaching curriculum, weekly family sessions and overnight visits to help young adults practice their newfound skills within their family system.
About Summit Achievement
Summit Achievement is, and always has been, guided by positive reinforcement and the power of choice. Our outcome-focused program employs effective therapeutic and educational principles. Through the process of engaging therapy, classroom academics and exciting wilderness expeditions, students experience the therapeutic benefits of outdoor adventure-based activities while learning to manage the demands of a more traditional environment. As an intentionally small, owner-operated wilderness therapy program, we serve adolescent boys and girls, ages 13-20, from around the world.
