Length of  the


Cascades Crest Transitions is a minimum nine month program that prepares young adults for adulthood by providing them the ability and skills to live independently. Cascade Crest provides the opportunity for students to practice these skills in a safe, supportive environment.


Students transitioning from wilderness therapy, residential program, or therapeutic boarding school may need extra support and guidance with their transition to living as an independent healthy adult.


Cascade Crest Transitions is designed to work with students who are ready to take the next steps towards independence and are open to receiving therapy and academic advising. Offering a safe and structure environment students commonly need nine to 12 months to explore their interests and determine their direction through internships, on-the-job training, academics and career advising.

Individuals who successfully complete the Cascade Crest Transitions program develop healthy lifestyles and maintain both physical and emotional health through education and encouragement.


The Summit Phase, just as when climbing a mountain, is the peak of the journey. Students have successfully worked through challenges by applying the skills learned in Belay and Ascent Phases. Once students have graduated from Cascade Crest, they usually move out on their own. The resources they have had access to during their time at Cascade Crest are still available to them. They can choose to continue working their therapist, meeting with their academic advisors and can access time to meet with their case manager when appropriate. Random UA’s are given to provide information to the student or to provide continued recovery support. Not everyone chooses or is suitable to participate in Summit Phase.
