WHAT WE DO

Through the use of outdoor adventure activities, our therapists provide an engaging way of counseling to promote growth and change, often called adventure therapy.

Adventure Works therapists are committed to a client-centered approach incorporating the most effective and appropriate treatment options for the individual. By working as a partner in the process, therapists can help identify a client's own strengths and supports to meet their goals. This may include individual or family therapy as well as group services.


Adventure Works recognizes that at least one in five people in the US are affected by negative mental health conditions. We are committed to reducing the stigma and barriers to mental health services, particularly adventure therapy, for all youth.

Thanks to grants and donations from our community, Adventure Works offers services that are free of financial obstacles for those living in DeKalb County, Illinois. Through active education, targeted communication, and community engagement; Adventure Works strives to shift the social and systemic barriers for those faced with negative mental health conditions and contribute to a healthier, stronger community.

ALLEVIATE THE ABSENCE OF POSITIVE EXPERIENCES AFFECTING THOSE LIVING IN POVERTY, PROVIDING HEALTHY OUTDOOR ACCESS FOR ALL.

REDUCE THE STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH THERAPY BY CREATING ACCESS TO THE OUTDOORS AND INTEGRATING NATURE & ADVENTURE IN THE COUNSELING PROCESS.
