Your family is our passion

When your child is suffering from depression, engaging in dangerous behaviors, or declining in school, it affects the entire family culture.  What may begin as a moderate challenge can easily become a serious crisis.  Family systems are constantly changing as children develop autonomy, family roles alter, and life’s challenges are experienced.  These changes can often have a dividing effect on a family’s culture.  Outback specializes in helping parents and their struggling teens come together to create healthy bonds, strong culture and a united family.  Outback offers comprehensive assessment and treatment for teens ages 13-17 in a multi-disciplinary wilderness program.  Our short-term, intermediate treatment options place strong emphasis on healthy relationships, increased self-efficacy, and a healthy amount of autonomy through skill building.
