Mindful Transitions: Navigating the Journey from Wilderness Therapy to Aftercare

Program Manager Matt George and Director of Business Development Mike Brown recently presented at the Outdoor Behavioral Health conference in Asheville, North Carolina!

Their presentation:

Mindful Transitions: Navigating the Journey from Wilderness Therapy to Aftercare

As alumni of wilderness therapy and Red Mountain Sedona, they offered attendees valuable firsthand experience of the process of transitioning from the field into a step-down program. The two discussed practices that proved helpful and unhelpful during the final weeks of wilderness therapy and the preparation for the subsequent transition into aftercare.

Matt and Mike shared that quality treatment programs, both wilderness and transitional, aim to break the cycle of “perpetual treatment” and successfully plan their futures.

Executive Director Josh White commented, “I’m incredibly proud of Mike and Matt. Not only are they proud graduates of our program, and invaluable staff members, but they’ve now taken the national stage to share invaluable information about their experiences both as staff and students. I have no doubt this unique perspective proved extremely effective and useful for those in attendance, and I look forward to seeing them present more regularly in the future.”
