Build a foundation for life.
“AR has helped me believe in myself again. With the help of my AR Guide, I was able to reverse a downward spiral that almost got me kicked out of college. Today I am thriving, pursuing my dreams and applying for grad school."
— Joe U.
Our Clients Achieve
Stronger sense of self and direction
A more joyful and fulfilling life!
Through personal adventures, we learn not only about the rugged beauty of nature, but we come home to ourselves. We build abilities, knowledge, and self-esteem.The Adventure Recovery Mentoring model matches you with an individual AR Guide. We utilize outdoor skills experiences and metaphors as the foundational learning tools for the client. One-on-one skills building allows teens, young adults, and adults to build confidence and lifelong abilities. By engaging in these outdoor skills, clients build self-esteem and self-efficacy in attaining their goals. These experiences directly translate into the mentoring relationship and build positive rapport, confidence, and clarity.
How does it work?
The client chooses an outdoor skill(s) on which to focus and the AR Guide provides instruction and guidance. As the client learns and experiences success the challenges naturally increase and proficiency deepens. The client-Guide relationship is grounded in these experiences.
Sessions are broken into half-day, full-day or overnight increments. We are highly flexible in how we structure time with clients, though we generally meet with them at least twice weekly for a minimum of 3 hours per session. In addition we provide text, email, and phone support to the client.
The truth is, you can live an amazing life. You have the capacity to thrive. Through outdoor experiences, adventure sports, and trusted connection you develop skills and abilities to achieve your life goals and life of joy and happiness.
You choose the activities and we guide you along the journey, supporting you every step of the way. By immersing yourself in these disciplines, you experience wonder, excitement, contentment, and happiness. These are the foundations for extraordinary living and sustainable wellness.
Please note that Adventure Recovery is not a treatment provider and does not provide therapy. These services are strictly guiding, mentoring and education focused.
