Choose Your Adventure

Individual Recreational Therapy Treatment Plans

Wasatch Crest’s recreational therapist creates recreational therapy treatment plans for each client. Treatment goals might include: identifying new leisure interests, increasing self-esteem, developing new coping skills, establishing community leisure resources, and implementing new spiritual practices.

Transcend Talk Therapy

Adventure Therapy Experiences

In addition to adventure therapy outings like rock climbing, fly fishing, ice skating, and snowshoeing, clients participate in equine therapy, a Lakota purification ritual, and service work on our adopted trail.

Heal With Horses

Equine Therapy

Wasatch Crest partners with an Eagala-certified equine therapist to offer ground-based equine therapy. Horses’ intuitive and social natures provide insightful, real-time feedback where talk therapy may fall short. Learn more.

Purify & Connect

Lakota Sweat Lodge Ritual

Led by a Lakota elder, the Lakota sweat lodge experience allows clients to develop a deeper connection with themselves, each other, and a Higher Power. Before the experience, clients participate in preparation sessions to understand the significance of the sweat lodge ritual.

Give Back

Our Adopted Trail

By helping to maintain our adopted trail, clients and alumni work towards a common goal and form a connection with the community. Learn more.
