"Anytime" Is The Best Time For A Family Intervention

By Stephen C. Schultz


The smoke was swirling skyward and the unmistakable smell of burning cedar drifted in my direction. There was the happy fireside chatter that happens when groups of teens gather around the fire. This particular time of year was the beginning of summer. Families around the world recognized that summer was a great time for a family intervention.

The first time I entered a group of teens attending RedCliff Ascent, I was surprised just how happy they were. I expected a bunch of mad, angry teenagers who were trying desperately to leave.

I was amazed at what I saw. Below is a brief video that shows exactly the types of students you will find enrolled in a wilderness treatment program and explanations of why it works so well! Take a look at this very cool video called;
