Deschutes Wilderness’ strengths reside in the intensity of clinical interventions and a true Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) model. NVW tailors the entire intervention process with the understanding that the field environment is a stressed environment. A focused, advanced neural science-based protocol allows for an effective and safe intervention for adolescents and young adults.
At Deschutes Wilderness we offer 2 hours of individual therapy per week as well as 1 hour of group therapy each week. In addition to the individual and group therapy sessions, our clinicians are trained in modern, cutting-edge, and evidence-based interventions. Credentials of our clinical staff are updated frequently on our staff page, click here to visit the clinical staff pages.
We have clinicians in the field throughout the week, which broadens the intervening opportunity.
