In looking for an aftercare facility for our son, we were impressed that the goal at RMS was independence, the ability to live one’s life. Looking back on RMS, our son has said, “I needed to learn how to live my life again.”Another aspect in Red Mountain’s favor was its flexibility, or perhaps it might better be called adaptability…
Our son wanted a program where he could work on his spiritual growth and he clearly preferred Red Mountain after he learned more about it. When he had a phone call with Josh, there was an immediate connection and that “sealed the deal.”
One of the reasons we chose Red Mountain was that it offered both structure and freedom. Twelve-step was offered, but not required, and there were many options to choose from. He found the program to be challenging, but they really listened to him and respected him. They were …
We found Red Mountain because the daughter of a good friend was a student and our families had shared stories about what our children were going through. We had looked at multiple other programs…
Our daughter had been in a wilderness program for 72 days when she graduated, and it was time to find a good aftercare program for her. We talked with her counselors and therapists and someone mentioned Red Mountain. I wanted to be sure because you are trusting your child to these programs and it’s important to…
My daughter had been stuck for a while. She was trying to work things out, but didn’t know how to go about it. It was frustrating for me, as a parent, to want to help, but I didn’t know what she needed, either. We found a terrific consultant who met with us and recommended Red Mountain.
We had a list of places from an education consultant and after we talked with Stacey at Red Mountain, we said, “This is the place.” Stacey really listened and allayed all my fears.
After our son talked with Josh, he said, “I don’t want to go anywhere else.”
When our son was completing wilderness therapy, we hadn’t planned on an aftercare program for him because we really didn’t know it was needed. However, a psychiatrist he had been seeing recommended that we look into it, so we agreed and eventually narrowed the choices down to three.
When our daughter was in wilderness therapy, we hired an educational consultant to help us through the process of finding an aftercare program. The consultant gave us three or four options that we narrowed down even further. We left the choice up to her and she chose Red Mountain.
Our son had been in wilderness therapy for 82 days, which was something of a record. We sent him there because traditional therapy was not working and he was spiraling to a very dark place. We honestly didn’t know what else to do…..
After many years of making poor choices, accumulated debt, and failure to move forward toward a productive future,our son became homeless, and was sleeping on a park bench. We felt that our only offer of support at that point was in-patient treatment…
I have known Josh White for over 15 years as a colleague and a meditation student. During this time, Josh has always had the highest ethics and aspiration to help others to learn and grow beyond their self-limiting patterns. I have been struck by his passion for integrating therapy with mindfulness ..
Our son has struggled with drug addiction and behavioral issues for years. He’s been in multiple outpatient programs, a standard residential program and a wilderness program. As he was preparing to leave wilderness for the second time, we looked for aftercare. Our Educational Consultant spoke ..
When it came time for me to choose an aftercare program, I wanted to stay in the West and I also wanted to be where the cost of living was reasonable—two factors strongly in favor of Red Mountain. Then I talked with Josh for two hours about the program and that sealed the deal.
When I was in wilderness therapy, I had never heard of aftercare, but then I kept hearing that more and more of my friends were going to Red Mountain. It seemed as if every other day, you would hear, “John is going to Red Mountain, or Jane is going to Red Mountain.”
When I was at Willows of Red Oak, I knew I had a substance abuse problem, and I did not want to go home.Josh was giving a talk in the area and he took the time to come see me. We found we had a lot in common and I really appreciated …
When I completed wilderness therapy, I had two choices for my next step, and one of them was Red Mountain. After having a phone conversation with both of them, I decided on RMS. One reason was that when I talked with Josh ….
When I came to Red Mountain, I had nothing to lose. When I first got here, I knew I had a long road ahead. I was going into the unknown and I feared it. Little did I know the beautiful life that was waiting for me. ..
Red Mountain does a great job of helping you learn how to deal with life in general. The staff does a nice job of relating to you as an individual. What I feel about Red Mountain is you come in a student, and leave a person. What I mean by that is that you go from being dependent on others to being ..
When I first came to Red Mountain, I was afraid and nervous. I thought I could cope with my life and didn’t want to face that I did not yet have the skills to do so. During my time at Red Mountain, I realized how susceptible I am to others’ influence and how in the past my choice of frie..
I arrived at Red Mountain fresh out of a wilderness therapy program. I felt good at that time, but I think I had a bit of a “wilderness high” which is something that gets a lot of people in trouble because you..
