We are here to help you launch your life!

Who We Are

Red Mountain Sedona is a transitional program designed to help young adults with behavioral and/or emotional challenges “launch” into fulfilling and productive adult lives located in the majestic beauty of Sedona, Arizona. We are a team of highly trained, experienced, and skilled experts in the field of mindfulness-based young adult treatment.

Red Mountain Sedona is the premier mindfulness-based young adult launch program in the world.

What We Do

Our clients engage in a daily matrix of training the mind, body and spirit using various forms of meditation and mindfulness, martial arts, Yoga, life skills, vigorous physical activity, and individual and group therapy.

We help our clients to:

  • Find a genuine joy in their life
  • Develop practical skills to handle life’s hurdles
  • Realize a unique and empowering purpose for their life.

We help our clients cease from harmful, ineffective, and unproductive behavior, and instead replace these behaviors with healthier habits that effectively instill wisdom, competence, confidence, and self-esteem.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the “backbone” of the Red Mountain program. While we engage in many practicalities such as teaching our clients life skills, helping them achieve financial independence and recovering from emotional issues; each of these activities takes place in the safe and supportive space created by mindfulness.

Mindfulness is an ancient practice with practical and cutting-edge connotations. Through the simple act of noticing – becoming mindful of patterns in thought and behavior – clients learn to:

  • Interrupt their self-destructive patterns of thought and behavior
  • Re-wire the brain to pause before acting
  • Effectively and sustainably make better choices

This is achieved through seated meditation; moving meditations such as martial arts, Yoga, hiking, other outdoor adventures, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Our clients often “catch” themselves before engaging in a non-working behavior, and are able to make healthier choices due to the power of mindfulness.

This makes our program particularly powerful for those who have struggled to maintain progress after engaging in other therapy programs in the past.   We can often help clients across the “finish line” where other programs have failed to do so.

Who We Work With

We work with young men and women ages 18 and up who have struggled to gain traction in life.   This “failure to launch” could be due to any number of issues such as poor life skills, emotional and behavioral challenges, compulsive behavior, trauma, or even drug and alcohol abuse. Many of our clients have usually completed previous treatment and need help transitioning into a fulfilling and enriching life. Note: having attended a primary treatment facility is definitely not a requirement to enroll.

While engaging in the Red Mountain programing our clients change from the inside out. It is through the clients engagement in mindfulness, physical fitness, fellowship, spiritual and emotional growth, and practice of taking personal responsibility that the individual ultimately creates lasting changes.

Along the way, they gain the many of the following skills: time management, emotional regulation, financial management, determination, physical fitness, healthy eating, academic achievement, and job training. Our graduates are happy, healthy, independent young adults who are ready to thrive and have achieved a track record of success.

Our Outcomes

Our graduates embody accountability, dignity, open-mindedness, curiosity, serenity, and strength of character. They are strong in their recovery from the issues that brought them into treatment, respectful of themselves and others, confident and engaged. The client graduating from Red Mountain Sedona will:

  1. Have an effective plan to heal their relationships with themselves, family, and loved ones
  2. Have a plan for their ongoing mental, physical, and spiritual health and growth
  3. Have gained full-time employment or full-time schooling
  4. Be self-sufficient with the ability to live outside of their family home
  5. Have a proper plan to stay healthy and sober

Recent graduates of Red Mountain have received college scholarships, government internships, have typically enrolled in school or working full time, have started fully supporting themselves financially, and even come back to Red Mountain to work with us full-time.

Mission Statement

We guide our clients to learn, heal, and grow in a supportive, structured, and caring environment helping them to achieve their full potential.


Red Mountain goes much deeper than most young adult transitional programs. We use superior clinical modalities, cutting-edge mindfulness practices, nutrition, outdoor activities, and life skills education to develop the mind, body, and spirit, helping our clients to achieve a healthy, fun, productive life.

HEAL the past

We will help you heal from past trauma, grief or loss, and any wreckage caused by your own poor decisions. We will help you rebuild relationships with family, loved ones, and, most importantly…YOURSELF.

LEARN to love the present

As we like to say, “To LIVE in the present is to LOVE the present.” Through cutting-edge therapeutic and mindfulness modalities, we will help you learn to stop regretting the past and stressing about the future. We will help you learn to love and accept yourself and your life in the present moment.

GROW in your future

We want to help create a compelling future by short-circuiting the self-limiting beliefs and self-limiting behaviors you have been floundering in for far too long. Our program doesn’t just teach life skills, we also work very hard to effectively address the complex emotional issues that may be holding you back.

We believe in the ability of every person

We believe in the ability of every person to fully recover from trauma, anxiety, depression, and poor choices. Most importantly, we believe in the ability of every person to live an enriching and enjoyable life full of meaning and purpose.

We believe that the wounds and mistakes of the past can be transformed into powerful and supportive energy that can help you build the life you choose for yourself.

We will give you the life skills you need to succeed.   We will equip you with the tools you need to “ride the waves” of the emotional ups and downs that are a part of life, without reacting in your old ways.   We will help you make better decisions and create a new life path. All of these things will help you generate new hope for your future.


Yoga has long been seen as a key component of physical and mental well-being, by promoting physical health, reduced stress, and a sense of inner peace.

T’ai Chi / Martial Arts

Ten-Chi Kenpo, the martial arts style taught at Red Mountain Recovery, is an integrative blend of several arts that focus on harmony, well-being, and spiritual peace.


The potential of mindfulness-based treatment to positively affect the outcome of addiction treatment is truly immense. At Red Mountain Recovery, this potential is fully realized.

Life Skills

Whether they need a job, internship or apprenticeship, or would like to enroll at a University, our hands-on experienced staff will do whatever it takes to help make these things happen.

Adventure Therapy

Adventure therapy is a specialized field that uses outdoor adventure activities to promote interpersonal, social and psychological wellness and change.


Many studies have shown that nutrition is a key part of feeding the “addict brain” and staying sober. We teach our clients how to eat right for the rest of their lives.
