Teens at Muir Wood enjoy game night

Holistic and Experiential Therapy

In addition to the evidence-based approaches utilized in our individual, group and family therapy sessions, we offer a broad array of holistic and experiential therapy opportunities for the teens at Muir Wood. With years of experience treating adolescent teens, we have developed a schedule of therapeutic experiences that greatly enhance our residents’ recovery work.

Types of Therapy at Muir Wood

  • Adventure Therapy: In our weekly Adventure Therapy program, teens are guided through incredible outdoor adventures by a Master’s level Eco-Therapist. Teens build confidence, develop new skills and interests, and learn to take on challenging circumstances within a safe therapeutic environment.
  • Guided Meditation & Yoga: Both yoga and guided meditation are taught weekly to help teens learn healthy stress management skills, calm their nervous system, and develop mindfulness. Teens work with a Certified Yoga Therapist and a meditation instructor with more than 30 years of experience.
  • Art Therapy: Our Master’s-level Art Therapist works with residents to help them process difficult emotions and trauma, build communication skills, learn creative problem-solving, and develop self-awareness.

Our holistic and experiential therapy offerings round out an effective program of individual and group therapy, structured academics, and family involvement. Call us today to learn more about the importance of holistic and experiential therapy in your son’s recovery program.
