About SUWS of the Carolinas

SUWS of the Carolinas is located in Old Fort, North Carolina, and provides wilderness therapy programming. Children and adolescents between ages 10 and 17 can be treated at one of our programs: Approach, Phoenix Outdoor, Seasons, and SUWS, which are all located in North Carolina. These programming options address a number of conditions within this age group. Some of the most common issues we treat include substance use disorder, behavioral issues, autism spectrum disorder, depression, mood disorders, and more. Throughout each program, patients can benefit from 12-Step programming, experiential therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), equine-assisted therapy, mindfulness and meditation, and more. The staff at each of our programs includes therapists, a psychiatrist, a nurse, an EMT, an equine-assisted learning expert, and two therapy dogs. Each program prides itself on the safety and effectiveness of all therapies and activities provided. In addition, our staff stands behind the evidence-based benefits of wilderness programs such as those provided through SUWS.
