RedCliff Ascent is a therapeutic wilderness program for teens ages 13–17. Teens who come to RedCliff are failing to manage their home, school, and social life in an age-appropriate way. These individuals need help re-engaging in a healthy lifestyle. RedCliff Ascent has helped thousands of families over the years when traditional, and other community treatment options have not improved their child or family. RedCliff Recovery is a women-specific recovery program located in the same field area as our adolescent program. The program inspires the greatest sense of life for women to recover. RedCliff Ascent covers an area of approximately 1,000 square miles. RedCliff is not a boot camp or adventure camp. As a wilderness therapy program or more accurately an Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare program, our model of teen help is based on respect, trust, and the understanding that your child is more than just the problems they are facing. Because of this belief, we provide an Integrated Care approach. It focuses not just on alleviating distress but promoting health and wellbeing. RedCliff Ascent is proud of being the industry leader in effectiveness research and setting the standards for outcomes research in wilderness therapy. RedCliff also leads the industry in risk management and client safety research, health and nutrition research, and program development research. Therapists at RedCliff are licensed, and the state of Utah licenses us. Our guides work with teens day and night to help them overcome their behavioral struggles by learning to recognize their strengths.
