Since beginning the program, my son has been steadily moving in a positive direction. I can see the light returning to his eyes. I can have meaningful conversations with him. These are the first and most important steps toward building back broken trust and fostering the kind of growth he needs to successfully transition into adulthood. This program is unquestionably invaluable. A gem in a daunting and overwhelming sea of counseling, therapy and rehab.

What is Adventure Therapy?

Adventure Therapy is an experiential therapy model that uses outdoor adventure to aid in personal growth, discovery, and healing. Therapeutic adventure offers practical tools to counter challenging self-talk, impulsive decision making, and low self-esteem. At PIVOTPoint, therapeutic adventure is core to every program.

Our Programs

At PIVOTPoint, we provide therapeutic adventure programs that help clients identify areas of strength and resilience.

We help you develop relationships that support and maintain healthy living – with yourself and others.

  • We ask you to do difficult things. 
  • We ask you to take a hard look at yourself and how you show up in the world.
  • We ask you to reframe that. To try new ways of relating to yourself and your world.
  • We ask you to get used to life playing out other than the way you want.
  • We ask you to change
  • And we ask you to let us be a part of that.
