Announcing TRAILS MOMENTUM Wilderness Therapy Program for Young Adults Now OPEN!!!

We have enrolled our first students, embarked on our first adventures, and are actively accepting student applications.  At Trails Carolina we are passionate about preparing our students and their families for the intentional transition to life. We excel at connecting families and empowering them for the future.

In keeping with that vision and sense of purpose, we saw an unfilled need for young adults to benefit from the same level of care that we provide for our youth and adolescent students.

To fill this need, we have officially launched our adventure-based Young Adult Wilderness Program: Trails Momentum!

Momentum offers a transformative, whole student centered growth experience for young adults struggling with anxiety, depression and other emotional issues. Our programming focuses on intervention and primary stabilization, and incorporates a family systems approach to treatment. We have also incorporated education into our programming and offer high school completion options as well as college credits.

In preparation for the launch of Trails Momentum, and with much deliberation, we have officially closed the former Trails Academy. Over the last several months, we have carefully worked to transition all of our former students.

Meanwhile, our beautiful 500 acre campus has been updated to become the base camp for Trails Momentum.

We look forward to answering all of your questions about Trails Momentum at any of the upcoming fall conferences, and we hope to host you for a tour of Trails Momentum on your next trip to Asheville!
