Our Wellness Program is an integrated, clinical/holistic/health/fitness program designed for those needing to step back from their lives, to relearn to take time to restore, rejuvenate and recharge.
Gourmet meals are prepared five evenings a week with clients cooking on their own or in groups one night a week. We also go out one afternoon a week to eat at local restaurants.
Healthy organic breakfast and lunch ingredients are provided so clients may decide what they want and fix it at that time. Clients go to the grocery store once a week and can choose healthy foods that they desire to make for the times that they are making their own meals as part of the wellness program.
We are happy to accommodate dietary restrictions as necessary.
Pets Emotional Support / Service Dog Program
We have an adjunct companion dog training program, which clients with socialized dogs, may apply for and have their dogs registered as companion dogs if they go all the way through the program. Clients who wish to have a companion dog may utilize one of our therapy dogs and then if successful with working with that dog, adopt a dog to complete the program with and have that animal registered as well. See the companion dog program page for more information.
Note. Clients who bring their dogs will need to be able to care for them entirely while they are at the facility. Feeding, cleaning up after them and making sure they have the time with you and enough exercise.

Contact Rites of Passage for more information.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program
The intensive outpatient program allows for both former residential clients and clients who have not been part of our residential program to continue or do their work in an intensive program that allows clients to work alongside the residential program from nine to two pm, four days a week. This allows individuals who no longer need 24-hour care or people who have children or need to work, to do the program in a slightly less intense fashion as long as they are in a safe and supportive environment when they are not at the facility.
Equine Therapy Treatment Program
Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is an emerging treatment modality that utilizes horse-handling activities to generate powerful therapeutic metaphors-metaphors, symbolic and that reflect how each individual relates to self and others. With the support of peers and Rites equine specialist and attending clinical therapist, students examine these metaphors to gain insight into their fears, habits, and unconscious ways of relating. As issues arise within the equine setting, students have en-vivo opportunities to work toward the understanding and healing of those issues.
