Second Nature’s therapeutic philosophy rests on the notion that the most effective treatment for adolescents requires clinical integration. This means that all aspects of the treatment process are seamlessly interwoven rather than fragmented or compartmentalized.
So often in therapeutic programs, there is a disconnect between the therapy sessions (conducted by the therapist) and the daily milieu (directed by program staff). At Second Nature, we believe the integration of these two components is critical. This is what transforms a student’s experience from what would otherwise be outpatient therapy + adventure camp into a truly therapeutic experience and makes Second Nature the best wilderness therapy program for your child.
