The Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness admissions team is here to support you during each step of the admissions process. Our goal is for parents to feel comfortable asking every conceivable question about how our program might be of service to their precious child. Because our admissions team maintains a regular presence on site and in the field, we are prepared with first-hand accounts of current group dynamics and experiences to share as families consider Blue Ridge.
Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness is the new name for Second Nature Blue Ridge. Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness is still the same program that you love and know in Second Nature Blue Ridge. At Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness we nurture peace, authenticity, connection and empowerment in the lives of the families we serve by weaving together the inherent healing force of nature with advanced clinical skill.
Most of us have had direct experiences with the healing that comes from being in the wilderness, and a few of us have been clients in wilderness programs ourselves. This perspective is invaluable, and allows us to truly appreciate the challenges faced by the families we serve.
