Elements Wilderness Program

An experience that’s all about adolescent boys and the families who love them

We at Elements envision a world in which everyone has the skills and support necessary to live a full and healthy life, and we have spent the past 10 years crafting a program that can best support that vision. Through sophisticated therapeutic and psychiatric intervention, a comprehensive outdoor living experience complete with expeditionary backpacking and adventure programming, a robust family program involving the family at every step, and evidence-based substance abuse treatment, we strive to provide our clients with intervention, treatment, and assessment.

Our program is infused at every level with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills designed to leave our clients and their families equipped with all the tools they need to cope with life's challenges.

We believe in specialized services that always seek to understand the needs of each of our individual clients and their families.

To that end, our programs are owner-operated and each serves their specific niche with purpose: Elements Wilderness Program serves adolescent males aged 13-17 and Elements Traverse serves young adults (18+).

With owners at every level of management, we are truly invested in our clients' well-being and success.
