Located in the high desert of Southern Utah, Medicine Wheel at RedCliff is a therapeutic wilderness program for young adults ages 18 and older who are struggling to find direction in their lives. Individuals manifest these struggles in many ways; substance abuse or addiction, emotional disorders, trauma, ADHD, alienation of friends and family, gaming or computer issues, the list goes on and on. Medicine Wheel is not a spa or a country club. It isn’t a high adventure camp. It is an opportunity for young men and women to end their developmental hiatus and reengage in life.
Medicine Wheel was founded in 2001 by our sister company, RedCliff Ascent. After more than 15 years of leading the wilderness therapy industry, they recognized the growing need for wilderness therapy beyond adolescence.
Medicine Wheel uses the same standards of therapeutic excellence in a program designed specifically for young adults. We are a clinically based program. Our clinicians oversee each step of the process and are in constant communication with guides and administrators to ensure that the most effective treatment is being implemented.
Along with our organizational stability and maturity, Medicine Wheel offers an unmatched safety record and a proven curriculum. Our goal is to help each client find their passion, define their success, and launch.
