Adolescents face many pressures that undermine their self-esteem and negatively impact their lives and relationships. Teens that are struggling, un-motivated, or acting-out may be lacking a sense of purpose and the confidence to work toward their goals. Experiencing the natural beauty and simplicity of the wilderness environment allows our students to leave behind the distractions and complications of their lives before Catalyst Xtreme. Our students are able to focus on themselves and address personal struggles with the guidance and support of our staff.
Customized Treatment Plan for Each Student
We believe that inspiring and empowering students to identify positive choices and develop strategies for maintaining healthy relationships sets the cornerstone for a lifetime of success. Our field guides, Master’s and PhD. level therapists are committed to using caring and non-punitive approaches that encourage every student to discover their internal motivation for success. Sophisticated clinical methods are combined with an emphasis on experiential learning and community building.
Our length of stay is flexible and determined on an individual basis. The average length of stay is 8-10 weeks. Some students require a longer stay, which we will address in their aftercare intervention. We customize all of our services, including the length of stay, to provide the best possible outcome for each student. Our student to staff ratio is unparalleled and group sizes are intentionally kept small, reflecting our commitment to a supportive and individualized approach, ensuring that all of our students receive the attention and guidance that they need to reach their true potential.
While living together in small groups requires students to practice relationship and life skills and encourages them to take personal responsibility for their daily success. Students are required to take time for prayer and self-reflection in order to strengthen their sense of identity, clarify personal goals, and examine the values and beliefs that guide their choices. Daily group processing facilitates open communication and supports healthy relationships within our close-knit community. Our students participate in a variety of skill-building exercises and challenges that promote teamwork and leadership and that enable students to identify and work toward specific personal goals.
