Nature and Faith-Based Recovery for Young Men
We aren’t like other sober living programs. Beartooth Men’s Rehab is a unique experience that is built around connecting young men back to nature and instilling in them the values of Christianity and the American West. We believe that true healing must be a three-pronged approach that helps heal young men physically, mentally, and spiritually. In order to accomplish this, we utilize several approaches that help young men improve their bodies, minds, and spirits.Through daily activities, such as Morning Prayer, Scripture readings, Christian virtue lessons, and work on the ranch, we help young men pursue excellence, practice self-discipline, develop honesty, and accept accountability.
Our natural setting is also an ideal environment to establish and peace, calm, and understanding about the responsibility these young men have to themselves. Set against the beautiful mountains of Wyoming, he can see the effects of God’s creation all around him. On our working cattle ranch, young men will be given the chance to experience equine therapy and continued recovery from all types of addiction in a unique and empowering way. In fact, many young men experience lifetime firsts that can help the young men focus on why they’re truly here. It’s a chance to visualize themselves as the men they’d like to be in the future.
Work It Out Therapies
Equine: Through bonding, overcoming frustrations, and “getting back on the horse” when they inevitably fall off, our students learn how to build lifelong relationships that involve clear communication, patience, and understanding.
Cognitive Behavioral: The therapist and mentors in our program use cognitive behavioral therapy to help each individual realize their negative thought patterns that lead to their dangerous behaviors.
Reality: Young men experience the natural consequences of choices and behavior while working on the ranch with others.
Experiential: Through our nature and relationship-based forms of therapy, they’re encouraged to express themselves, identify their triggers, and gain a greater understanding of who they are.
Family: Residents participate in relationship counseling, how to heal, how to communicate better, and a once a month family counseling phone call with resident & family members, led by our Director, Thomas George.
