Adventure Works is a not-for- profit outdoor behavioral health organization for DeKalb County youth. Weekly group therapy sessions are clinically led, utilizing the natural environment and adventure-based experiences to promote positive changes in behavior, develop coping skills, and improve mental wellness. Adventure Works specializes in working with at-risk youth to overcome challenges related to childhood trauma, behavioral, emotional and mental health issues. While they are able to bill some insurance companies, the services are provided regardless of ability to pay. Founded in 2010, Adventure Works’ mission is to assist youth in overcoming challenges and becoming healthy adults through adventure-based counseling.
Adventure Works’ “office” is outdoors. Archery, canoeing, hiking, climbing, wilderness survival skills and orienteering are some of the tools used to provide experiences that foster personal and social responsibility and emotional growth. The Adventure Works advantage is that kids WANT to come to counseling and they routinely average a nearly 90 percent attendance rate—making AW a great alternative for youth who have not had success in a traditional counseling setting.
