Intake is the first stop in the Medicine Wheel therapeutic journey. It is also the most uncomfortable part of the process. When clients arrive they are escorted to a private changing area where they change clothes completely in front of a staff member of the same sex. Medicine Wheel provides all of the clothing and gear young adults need to be safe and comfortable in the wilderness. After clients have changed into wilderness clothes, they are drug tested using a urinalysis. It is very important for their safety, and ours, as well as other clients in the field, that we know what, if any, drugs may already be in their system.

Clients next visit a local physician for a complete physical. They are encouraged to tell the doctor about any pain or illnesses they may have experienced in the past or may currently be experiencing. Once the exam is complete, clients are driven to the field to meet their therapy group.
