Wilderness Therapy for Young Adults

Evoke’s Wilderness Therapy Program for Young Adults takes our proven treatment model of whole-health and applies it to primitive living in the wilderness, free of distractions, and rich with metaphor. This empowering experience provides the young adult client with an intervention, assessment, and stability necessary to achieve and maintain a happier, healthier life. This experience consists of remote base camp living, expedition-style backpacking, and adventure activities in addition to personalized clinical treatment and individualized and group therapy.

This program is for young adults ages 18-25+ who feel stuck, lost, unmotivated, overwhelmed, or need help finding their inner empowerment. Our experienced clinical team is successful at working with a variety of issues, from mental health diagnoses, developmental issues, and learning disabilities.
