Out Of The Wilderness

I came to Red Mountain from a wilderness program, and the turning point was when Josh visited me there. I had a number of other options, but none of them appealed to me. I wanted a place where I could ask, “Who am I?” questions and answer them. So Josh came to visit and he…

People at Red Mountain Really Care

On numerous occasions I was very near death due to risky behavior with substances and lack of direction in life. Because my thinking errors were so strong, my near death experiences did nothing to deter my self-destructive behavior. I did 90 days of primary treatment but due to how I’d been living I had very…

I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I Actually Have Motivation to Do What’s Best For Me

I was frustrated and going through the motions when I first got to Red Mountain. I didn’t want to do things anybody else’s way but my own. I thought I was open-minded but truthfully, I would always manipulate ideas and situations to suit me. I let a lot of things stew inside me and didn’t…
