SUWS Idaho Wilderness Programs
SUWS Idaho Wilderness Programs for troubled teens specialize in helping troubled and defiant teenagers with behavioral and emotional problems. Operating in southern Idaho since 1981, SUWS wilderness therapy programs have assisted young people to identify and work through internal conflicts and emotional obstacles that have kept them from responding to parental efforts, schools, and treatment. SUWS residential and outdoor programs accept boys and girls ages 11 to 17.
SUWS licensed wilderness programs for teenagers provide families with a safe and immediate intervention by utilizing individualized treatment plans and a flexible length of stay. The wilderness environment and experiential learning at the residential treatment center help troubled teenagers recognize and build upon their own sense of self-worth.

Letter from Kathy Rex - Executive Director
"Welcome to SUWS (pronounced soos). You are facing what is possibly the most difficult decision of your life. The choices you make in the next few weeks will in part determine your child's future.
We believe your child probably shares one common characteristic with the students we serve in that he or she is a "good kid making bad choices." SUWS is unparalleled in our ability to address your child's core issues thus allowing development of a greater sense of purpose and self worth. This empowers him or her to make better choices.
SUWS has served at-risk youth and their families since 1981. This experience, our treatment team, our unique search and rescue model, the pristine wildemess location in southern Idaho, and our love of young people make this an option worth considering.
SUWS will be the most challenging and rewarding time of you child's life, and like you, we believe he or she is worth it!"
