New Vision Wilderness (NVW) sets the standard as a specialized wilderness therapy program. We offer a "build them up" philosophy focusing on young people's strengths and encouraging growth in those areas. All of our locations in Bend, Oregon, Asheville, North Carolina, and Medford, Wisconsin utilize both adventure education and state-of-the-art clinical interventions that include a proprietary treatment model, pure-bred Golden Retrievers, an advanced form of therapy called Brainspotting and a fully integrated, trauma-informed treatment environment to create safety and change from the inside out. NVW does not rely solely on a physical challenge regimen as the catalyst for positive change. NVW de-emphasizes the behavioral level system, favoring instead, a relational focused treatment plan that includes mastery projects to assist with attachment and connection. This is what sets us apart and provides an unparalleled wilderness experience while adhering to the highest standards of safety and individual attention.
