The Ascent companies are made up of 7 main programs and 1 after care program that can offer a full continuum of care for your son or daughter.

What is a Continuum of Care?

A Continuum of care is a series of programs or treatment options for a young man or woman that begins with a wilderness program and ends with a boarding school and after care program helping the teen progress from a critical state back home again.
