Therapeutic Programs for Young Adults Maine
As one of the superior therapeutic programs for young adults from Maine, Expanse Wilderness assists young adult men or women who may be wrestling with obstacles related to their mental or emotional health, such as process addiction (gaming, gambling), sex addiction (pornography), autism/asperger's (ASD), eating disorders, and more. Although Expanse Wilderness may be located outside of Maine, we accept young adults from all over the United States.
When a emerging adult enters a wilderness, therapeutic program for young adults, they are leaving their unhealthy environment behind for a remote setting that allows them to focus on their frequent challenges. Without distractions and negative influences, they can rehabilitate and gain insight into their past behaviors. During this time, they are able to develop the skills necessary to begin making better decisions in the future.
Wilderness therapy incorporates several types of therapy, including Family treatment, Talk therapy, and Life-coaching, that come together to help troubled emerging adults from Maine develop the confidence and life skills they need to return home and continue on a better path. Emerging adults wrestling with process addiction (gaming, gambling) or sex addiction (pornography) are also introduced to the relapse prevention skills that assist with maintaining their sobriety after returning home.
A three-year study found that young adult men or women who attend therapeutic programs for young adults have a significant recovery from their dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors, while also significantly enhancing their life effectiveness. This is due in large part to the natural and restorative environment, as well as the group milieu, that helps shift their world views while providing innumerable opportunities for learning and growth.

Life Skills for Young Adults from Maine
Studies have shown that wilderness therapy can be more powerful and create a faster remediation than the types of therapy delivered at a traditional inpatient treatment program. Away from distractions of any kind, the young adult clients at Expanse Wilderness are only focused on healing. This is why wilderness therapy often works for young adult men or women who have completed treatment in the past without long lasting results, as well as those who are resistant to treatment or deny they have a problem.
As a proud member of the National Association of Schools and Therapeutic Programs (NATSAP), Expanse Wilderness gives only the best options for recovery and life skills training for troubled young adults.
Programs for Young Adults with No Direction
Providing effective programs for young adults with no direction, Expanse Wilderness provides our emotionally challenged adult wilderness participants with the therapy they need to rehabilitate from their current challenges that are affecting their happiness and success. Research has found that there are more benefits to attending a wilderness treatment center far from home, especially for emerging adults wrestling with sex addiction (pornography) and/or process addiction (gaming, gambling).
Wilderness therapy requires struggling adults to leave behind their unhealthy environment and influences and enter a serene and healing setting that is entirely devoid of any distractions, including TV, radio, and phones. This allows the young adult man or woman to focus solely on why they are here and working to overcome their obstacles. In our small groups, the young adult clients engage in therapy, while also developing their independent living skills.
The Benefits of Wilderness Therapy
It is a frequent misconception that troubled young adult men or women who attend outdoor therapy camps are being punished. They are not. Instead, they are delivered a healing environment that is conducive to remediation and gives 24/7 treatment as one of the key benefits of wilderness therapy.
When young adults are placed in a difficult situation, it provides them with the opportunity to work through their challenges and become the adult they want to be. They learn responsibility, self-reliance, leadership, and the importance of teamwork, while also enhancing their confidence. These are all things that are necessary for long-term recovery.
