Pure Life’s Adventure Therapy students are typically facing challenges associated with: depression, anxiety, substance abuse, screening/gaming abuse, executive function deficits, low motivation, adoption, low self-esteem, body image, & trauma. Individuals attending our program have a willingness to change. Pure Life is open to adolescents from 14-17 and young adults from 18-30. Our students work on their social skills, leadership skills, life planning skills, & vocational development. Through cultural immersion, community service, & adventure-based activities, our students develop the skills & experiences necessary to get them through difficult adult transition so they can thrive and flourish on their own. We are able to provide bilingual (Spanish to English) services to all clients from admission --> treatment.*
