Special thanks to Second Nature Wilderness Program for their generous support of our teens:
“Second Nature is proud to offer a 75% scholarship to children that have been approved and funded by Savings Teens for a long-term recovery program. We do so because we value the SavingTeens methodology. This begins with their comprehensive evaluation, which insures that the kids we are providing scholarships for are a good fit for our program. Once they have completed their wilderness component, SavingTeens funds a longer-term therapeutic environment, like a therapeutic boarding school. We think that this commitment to aftercare for our clients gives them a much greater likelihood of eventual success. SavingTeens also recognizes the important role the family plays, and provides funding and emotional support for the parents during the process so they can attend workshops and have someone to talk to. We feel this is another essential component for success. Finally, SavingTeens requires that the parents contribute to the process financially, according to their need, and that they commit for the long-term program of 18-24 months, to strongly discourage their removing their children.
“Overall we feel that SavingTeens has created an excellent model for recovery based on real world experience. This gives us great confidence that the large financial commitment we are making will be rewarded with troubled teens transformed into functional, happy young adults. We hope that we can be an example for other programs and schools by fully participating in this very important initiative.”
