Elements Traverse

We envision a world where everyone has the support and skills necessary to live a full and healthy life. Our mission is to provide young adults with the most engaging and effective treatment program in the outdoors. As an intentionally small owner-operated company, our program and our company culture are centered around our four core values
  • Empowerment: We believe that we all possess the power to be the person we want to be and to live the life we want to live. Once we harness our personal power, we can change the world.
  • Passion: There is something that sparks all of us to dream, to wonder, to work, to live. We believe that once we tap into our personal passions, we are better able to articulate what we want to do with our lives, and what impact we want to have on the world.
  • Connection: We believe that life's meaning comes from our connection to others, to ourselves, to the natural world. We believe that we are strongest when we are connected to a community of friends and family.
  • Character: We believe that one’s character is the foundation of one’s personal legacy. We believe that every second of every day we are who we are. Both how we treat those we want something from, and how we treat those from whom we have nothing to gain. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

The Dorm

Since 2009 our mission has been to guide young adults ages 18 to 35 towards independence through evidence-based clinical therapies, community support and practical skill building. Our treatment approach centers around the whole person, be that mental health and substance abuse therapy, or academic guidance and health and wellness support. The strength of our services lies in the unique balance we create between individualized treatment and the integration of a supportive peer-based community.

The Arise Society

We help young adults that are struggling with anxiety, depression, gaming and other motivational issues. We provide personalized academic, therapeutic, and social support in a real-world setting, which gives our students the skills to reach their fullest potential. They attend college and benefit from group and individual therapy, 24/7 availability of mentor support, activities and social events. We empower students to regain a sense of confidence, independence, and health as they move forward in life.

Onward Transitions

Empowering a kind generation of contributing young adults. Onward Transitions in S. Portland, Maine, just two hours north of Boston, is a small, independent, owner-operated program for up to 18 bright, motivated, emerging adults learning to live on their own. OT supports actual, sustainable independent living, helping emerging adults become more autonomous. Participants (members) ages 18-30 never live with us; they live in their apartments throughout the city, selected according to personal preferences and resources.

Spruce Mountain Inn

Located in the heart of Central Vermont, Spruce Mountain Inn has been providing compassionate, client-driven residential treatment and counseling since 1982 for young adults who are experiencing difficulty managing life. Our comprehensive and experiential approach integrates intensive mental health treatment with a Career & Education Development Program and independent living skill development to support residents toward renewed health, greater confidence, and a meaningful future.

Juniper Canyon Recovery

Our program encourages women to explore and heal core issues that are preventing them from living the life they are worthy of living. All therapy and programs are conducted within an environment of mutual respect, empowerment, and trauma-informed care. Our approach is designed to address substance abuse and other commonly presenting behaviors that often co-occur with trauma. We help women heal the underlying issues that are responsible for consistent self-sabotage. Our treatment team assesses the whole person, including an acknowledgment of the cultural influences and assumptions that many women have been raised with that may influence self-beliefs or behaviors.

Fulshear Treatment to Transition

Fulshear Treatment to Transition is a program just outside of Houston, Texas for young adult women ages 18-24 with mental health struggles such as anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and trauma. Our young women typically struggle within relationships as well. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to our treatment program. Relationships are the guiding star. We teach you how to navigate the different personal and interpersonal issues that arise. Throughout treatment, you will gain the power to learn to integrate into new and unique situations. You’ll find yourself confident in your ability to contribute to the world you live in.
