Mission Statement

Anasazi is a wilderness therapy program for troubled teens and at-risk youth - an alternative to boot camps or brat camps.

It is the mission of ANASAZI Foundation to prepare parents and children to turn their hearts to one another, begin anew, and walk in harmony in the wilderness of the world.


Within every child is a seed of greatness...
Recognized internationally for its caring and effective approach, ANASAZI Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) intervention resource that helps to restore and strengthen parent-child relationships.

ANASAZI's licensed and Joint Commission-accredited, outdoor behavioral healthcare services are ideal for adolescents (12-17) and young adults (18+) struggling with lack of motivation, defiance, mild mood disorders, drug and alcohol experimentation, entitlement issues, and other self-defeating behaviors. We offer six-week wilderness-based, residential treatment programs rooted in the belief that all young people--regardless of their struggles or at-risk choices--possess an inherent "seed of greatness." This idea permeates our philosophy and ourevidence-based therapeutic approach, which addresses the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of a child's life.

Parental involvement is the key...
ANASAZI considers its work with parents and caregivers to be as important as its work with their children. Our renowned parenting program and aftercare services help committed parents create a home environment that enhances family unity and promotes a lasting change in family behavior.

A unique approach...
Our non-punitive ANASAZI Way philosophy focuses on one's strengths and good deeds--it relies on natural consequences rather than on contrived experiences or punishment. This approach promotes a change of heart that often results in a lasting change in behavior. The young people who participate in ANASAZI programs discover a profound sense of self worth which enables them to begin anew and assume responsibility for the choices that govern the course of their lives.
