Integrating Residential Treatment and Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare

Legacy Treatment Center programs are a unique blend of licensed residential treatment (RTC) and accredited Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare (OBH).   Both Juniper Canyon Recovery Center for Women and Legacy Outdoor Adventures are accredited as Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare programs, in addition to being licensed by the state of Utah to provide residential treatment to adult men and woman struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues.  We integrate the healing influence of time outdoors into our residential treatment center experience. The adventure therapy we do with our clients is a catalyst for self-discovery and personal growth. 

Wilderness and adventure therapy, supervised by licensed therapists and facilitated by expert guides, is a proven and an effective environment for change and personal growth.  We utilize challenge and adventure to engage our clients and add texture to the "treatment as usual" experience.  This setting allows clients to identify their strengths, recognize their resiliency, gain insight into their core identity, and find new meaning and purpose in their lives.  We intentionally create synergy between time at the treatment center and time outdoors to maximize treatment effectiveness.
