Triple Divide Lodge
Triple Divide Lodge is the only program of its kind. In our 90-day program, we combine residential and wilderness therapy treatment for adolescent males 14-19. We help young men struggling with substance use disorders and other related co-occurring issues. Our clinical model allows staff to assess clients in a variety of shifting environments. Incorporating residential treatment with wilderness experiences encourages our clients to step outside of their comfort circle, learn that they’re capable of doing difficult things, and develop the confidence necessary to make real change and overcome substance use.
What is a Triple Divide?
By definition, a triple divide is a point on the Earth's surface where three drainage basins meet. We view the triple divide as the point at which body, mind, and spirit come together to elevate the individual. When these 3 areas are in harmony, physical and emotional health along with analytical thought is balanced. We treat the whole person through various clinical modalities including traditional and experiential therapies. Together, we help clients gain skills that will help them become mentally and spiritually whole.
