Dedicated to Restoring Families

We Help Troubled Youth Find Peace
Family is not only part of our name.

Family is our Top Priority

Family Help & Wellness was founded with the modest goal of opening a single, superior wilderness therapy program offering cutting-edge care based on the work of experts in the field. After seeing stellar initial results, it was apparent we could help many more youth and families by expanding our efforts with other leaders in the field.

Since then, we’ve assembled an unparalleled team of behavioral health experts to develop a variety of innovative new programs that are producing sustainable change in even the most difficult cases. We’re committed to helping youth acquire the skills needed to overcome their mental and emotional challenges, and seeing families restored in the process. If you’ve been searching for a solution that will have a lasting impact on your child’s life, you’ve come to the right place.

We offer a variety of immersive, clinically sophisticated, and outcome-driven programs including wilderness therapy, boarding school environments, assessment facilities, psychiatric hospitals, and transitional housing. All of these settings create a warm, caring environment in which your child can face challenges and receive real-time counseling and intensive therapy. After your child goes through one of our programs, they will have developed the skills necessary to lead a happier, healthier life.
