Stories from the Field: Demystifying Wilderness Therapy. Chris Luchesi

Chris Luchesi is a field guide at Legacy Outdoor Adventures. Chris grew up outside of Boston but had not even heard of wilderness therapy until he was in his 30's. Chris was on a career track working for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority in Boston when he "heard the call" of working in wilderness therapy after learning about Outward Bound and Legacy. He shares his remarkable story of leaving everything he was familiar with to move to Utah and work as a field guide at Legacy at the age of 3

Legacy Outdoor Adventures Field Guide Chris Luchesi shares his story on the latest episode of Stories from the Field: Demystifying Wilderness Therapy with Will White. Feeling like a salmon swimming upstream, Chris left a career in Massachusetts to pursue his purpose in Wilderness Therapy. #Purpose #Recovery #Adventure #RXoffthecouch #community#relationship
