About Our Program For Struggling Young Adults
We help our students transition from adolescent behaviors to responsible adulthood, providing the “bridge” from primary treatment to full independence. We help young adults transitioning out of wilderness therapy and other primary treatments to get back on track with school and jobs while resolving their core issues through ongoing intensive therapy.
Our mindfulness-based programming helps our students discover their inherent goodness and focus on giving back to the community. From there, they can focus on redirecting their life path in a positive direction and maintaining the strides made in primary treatment in a “real world” setting.
The Red Mountain program offers access to excellent clinical services, as well as a daily meditation program taught by a Zen Sensei and a Tibetan Meditation Instructor. Red Mountain Sedona offers life skills training, nutritional coaching, group therapy, hiking, martial arts, yoga, physical fitness, case management, and academic support. Students are taught life skills such as techniques for successful job interviewing, keeping living spaces clean, financial planning, etiquette, and time management.
Sedona is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in America. Situated between the lower desert in Phoenix and the Ponderosa Pine forests in Flagstaff, the famous Red Rock Wilderness of Sedona is scattered with beautiful red cliffs and crystal clear waters of Oak Creek meandering through an assemblage of Arizona Cypress, Pinon Pine and Juniper.
Named by USA Today as the “Most beautiful place in America,” Sedona is a perfect place to embark on a journey of healing. There are four well known energy vortexes around Sedona as well, and people come from all over the world to pray, meditate, and take advantage of these healing energies.
At Red Mountain Sedona, we provide a safe environment where our students can let their guards down in order to experience true healing. There are many programs where trouble and poor decisions lurk just around the corner. That’s not the case in Sedona; trouble will not find you here as it may in other towns. Instead, our students find themselves on a hike with red rock views, a bike ride along the banks of Oak Creek, or practicing Yoga or Tai Chi underneath the blue sky – Sedona averages 300 days of sun every year! Sedona is a safe, quiet community that provides the perfect “landing pad” for young people coming out of primary treatment. Students are provided with daily access to our private Yoga / Martial Art studio, as well as membership to a state of the art gym, all within walking distance from our apartment-based housing. The gym is equipped with full cardio and weight rooms, hydro-massage, and a variety of other amenities.
Our professional team includes nine Master’s Level clinicians, three sanctioned meditation instructors, a psychologist, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, three case managers, two martial arts instructors, a yoga teacher and over 20 experienced, professional program mentors who provide 24/7 support. Our students are gently guided by our highly seasoned staff away from destructive patterns and choices toward productive, healthy patterns and choices.
Our team provides a unique personal growth experience, one that students could not experience at other programs. Red Mountain Sedona provides our students with the tools to truly launch into happy, healthy, productive lives.
Red Mountain Sedona is a premier young adult transition program, built on the shoulders of some of the most experienced and well-respected individuals in the field of young adult treatment. Most of our core staff has worked together for years, in some cases for decades, and collectively our team possesses over 150 years of professional clinical experience.
