About Second Nature (Wilderness Program)

At the forefront of outdoor adventure therapy for over 20 years, Second Nature is the industry’s most trusted and sophisticated wilderness therapy program, founded on the belief that teens and their families deserve quality clinical treatment, combined with sensitivity, care, and compassion. We work with adolescents struggling with a variety of mental health diagnoses, behavioral problems, development issues, learning disabilities, school problems and relational difficulties. The highly experienced admissions team at Second Nature is able to match your child’s unique circumstance to one of our many niche therapy groups and therapists specializing in a specific population.

Second Nature clinicians are among the most experienced and well-respected in the field. When students are first enrolled, they are matched with the therapist and group which best fits their unique therapeutic issues. As such, Second Nature is equipped to serve a wide range of issues without concern that students will be improperly placed with peers whose focus is too dissimilar.
