How Young Teens Can Create Lasting Change

Pure-Life fav icon - Wilderness Adventure Therapy in Costa Rica

The transition from adolescence into adulthood is difficult; some teens find themselves overwhelmed by or lost in this transition.

The feeling of being unsure of one’s future is not an uncommon one for teens. While many programs help individuals experiencing “failure to launch,” it is vital to find a treatment option that offers lasting change.

How do we know that the results will last? How does Pure Life help teens achieve lasting change?

By fostering and supporting autonomy, responsibility, and greater well-being, we can help the teens who come through the Pure Life program achieve lasting results.

Pure Life promotes lasting change in adolescents by promoting personal development and self-improvement through outdoor adventure therapy, sometimes mistakenly conflated with wilderness adventure therapy.  At Pure Life, we combine the effectiveness of outdoor adventure therapy, adventure activities, and complete cultural immersion with  our proven, research-based model to promote lasting change in struggling teens.

The Pure Life program was designed to help teens who struggle with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Adoption
  • Mood Disorders
  • Low Motivation
  • Substance Abuse
  • Executive Function Skills
  • Social Skills
  • Academic Performance
  • Gaming/Screening Abuse

More specifically, our program at Pure Life Adventure addresses low self-esteem, body image issues, lack of focus, and poor organizational skills. Much of the success of our program here at Pure Life Adventure is attributed to the ability to operate and process certain things “in the moment,” otherwise known as “In Vivo” therapy, allowing students to learn more experientially.
