Wilderness & Agricultural Therapy – Georgia


Where Sustainable Change IS Possible!

Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain region of Georgia

Northwoods Blue Ridge is located in the picturesque Blue Ridge mountains, just minutes from a variety of outdoor adventures in Georgia, North & South Carolina, and Tennessee.

A sister program to Northwoods Ranch & Retreat, our Blue Ridge ranch is a uniquely structured, residential wellness and life skills program assisting struggling young men ages 18-28. We do this by combining the daily responsibilities of a working ranch with outdoor adventure, physical activity, and volunteer work.

Our program is specifically designed to mimic real world experiences while focusing equally on the expectations of adulthood as well as the importance of personal happiness.

Sustainable Life Skills

Northwoods Blue Ridge is based on the philosophy of Sustainable Life Skills through Sustainable Living™, which utilizes evidence based techniques necessary for overcoming self defeating behaviors and thoughts and experiential learning essential for real world success.

Sustainable Life Skills through Sustainable Living educates students in the process of achievement through personal involvement, commitment, and accountability.

Online School Support

As a small family program, Northwoods recognizes the importance of adapting to the needs of our students. With the current state of things (Covid-19), it is becoming more and more common for students to attend their schooling completely online.  Whether it is high school, college, or adult education, Northwoods is here to help. Please see our school support program page for our overview video and more information on how we break down the various types of schooling and how we can support our students.
