What is Wilderness Therapy?

We often are lost in life long before we realize it. Evoke leverages this aspect of the human condition in Wilderness Therapy. Our teens are much more likely to discover the path of understanding themselves when distractions disappear. The wilderness becomes an asset helping our participants understand that hard, well-thought out journeys are worth it. Focus is sharpened, minds are opened and understanding and healing begins.
