Why Should Parents from Bend, OR Choose Wilderness Therapy to Treat Their Troubled Daughter?

As to why parents from Bend, OR should consider utilizing the services of a wilderness therapy program, the answer is simple: Wilderness therapy is proven to effectively treat troubled teenagers' emotional, behavioral, and mental issues (including troubled girls and their from the Bend, OR area).

According to the Outdoor Behavior Health Council (OBH) Study, the Youth Outcome Questionaire (YOQ), wilderness therapy is scientifically proven to treat the underlying issues of troubled teens effectively. The YOQ year-long study included 858 graduated participants from numerous wilderness therapy programs and their families.

Waiting a year after the teen participants completed their wilderness programs, the OBH Council contacted the randomly chosen participants' families (including families from Bend, OR) and inquired whether or not their child's wilderness therapy experience yielded long-lasting results. Their findings were as follows:

  • Eighty-three percent were doing better, and 58 percent were doing well or very well. Seventeen percent were still “struggling.”
  • Eighty-one percent rated outdoor behavioral healthcare treatment as useful; 10 percent split between “not effective” and “not sure” or “partially effective.”
  • Eighty-six percent were in high school or college or had graduated from high school and were working. Six had graduated from high school but were living at home and “doing nothing;” only five had not graduated from high school, and these were living at home and working or “doing nothing,” and one was in prison.

Wilderness Therapy is Clinically Proven to be Effective in Treating Serious Mental Health Issues

There is no more significant threat to our nation's youth (including teenage girls from Bend, OR) than mental health-related issues in today's America. Recent polls show that one out of five teens lives with depression, anxiety, or a mixture of the two.

What makes these epidemic-like numbers even more concerning is that suicide is currently the third-leading cause of death among teenagers.

Luckily for parents of depressed teenage girls from the Bend, OR area, wilderness therapy is a research-supported treatment provenly effective in treating depression, anxiety, and stress - more so than more traditional, indoor-based facilities.

As for why outdoor-based treatment programs are better suited to treat mental health-related issues than indoor programs, research says it is a combination of several factors. For example, hiking (an obviously significant part of outdoor-based therapy) is clinically proven to reduce negative thinking patterns and harmful brain activity, known as rumination.

Studies have also shown that when immersed in nature, a teenage girl's brains improve her neuroplasticity, causing them to become increasingly open to receiving therapy.

Navigating the challenging environment of the wilderness also helps form bonds between teens and clinical staff. This organic relational development builds long-lasting trust between teen and their therapist. Developing and building upon the trust between camper and caregiver is a crucial factor when it comes to a mentally ill teenage girl's willingness, ability, and overall likelihood of effectively treating their underlying mental health-related issues.
