  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

wow, this place really helped me. Im 25 years old now, i was 19 when i showed up shaking from detoxing. Looking back, this place absolutely saved & pivoted my entire life. I was ready to get sober, i really was... i got a early start at 12 and by 19 i was on a pretty dark road. I remember the 1st day in the woods, i wanted to quit the first few miles in... Truly difficult and i bitched the entire way, those woods were rough for a spoiled, no perspective, never worked for a damn thing in my life 19 year old drug addict like myself. It was everything i needed for my transition, because after that long time in the bob marshal, after whipping my ass with leaves, after peaking mountains, after living in the woods for 30 days carrying 60lb packs i had actually accomplished something that i really didnt think i could.. I mean it was rough for me out there haha but when i came back i think that was the moment of momentum in my life because i had a level of accomplishment and confidence after that experience. The staff, the environment, the cabins... the woods.... No phones, no escape... I mean really, this place is what a sick person like myself needed. God, from beginning to end this place has the formula down. An experience that literally save & jumpstarted my life into a new one. 6 years sober last month.
    It was aful do not send your kid there
      My son was in a very dark place when he arrived in Montana. He went kicking and screaming and only agreed to go because he ran out of options. In the end, it turned out to be the experience of a lifetime. Today, two and a half years later, he still talks about his 21 day wilderness trip. It was truly life altering. He's working and taking online courses. I can't say enough about the staff and the program in general. Wilderness Treatment Center gave me my son back and for that I'll be forever grateful.
        this place is a scam. The only reason they have a high success rate is because it is measured on a low timeframe of sobriety while patients are still in another sober living. The cabins you live in are very old, small, and you share them with 8 people. Then you spend 2 weeks out in the wilderness. That part can be fun, however, the gear you are using is all very old and has been used my multiple people before you (Even the 2 pairs of socks you get for your 14 -21 day adventure in the wilderness with no showers or bathrooms). I support people getting sober but they should go to AA instead of going here. Also you spend the weekends doing chores around the farm. So it's like you are paying them a ton of money and in return you get to do work for them which is obviously messed up. You can seriously recover from this disease for free. Since completing this rehab. I have seen people who were in it with me. However none of them are sober. You have to be ready to actually quit, you can't just send them here. Also You only get two monitored calls with your family per week. I think they have a lot to hide from families that they don't want them to see as far as how they run their program. Overall seems like a very dishonest business.
          This place It is completely toxic it’s truly disgusting I’m not one of those ppl who think normal manly things are toxic. no!!! I absolutely love the outdoors and think this place is horrendous my number is 734 497 1299 I lost all the toe nails on feet during a “trip” and the pack was too heavy for me I was 135 lbs at the time of the “trip“ My pack was too heavy for me and I could barely move already on top of my feet being sour because I lost my toe nails and was then bullied for not being able to keep up awhile I was injured the staff said absolutely nothing they said well we are stuck out here there’s nothing we can do they actually made bets with each other if my foot would turin green and fall off!!!
