The mission of Gray Wolf Ranch is to provide a natural, safe, and supportive setting for beginning a structured progression toward a sober lifestyle. Our program is based on two central concepts: that we live and work on recovery as a community, and that each person’s needs defines his pathway to recovery.
Gray Wolf is an intermediate care residential lodge providing a transitional living environment for young men between the ages of 14 and 25 in early recovery from chemical dependency. To be admitted, each resident must be motivated to make profound changes in lifestyle, have completed a chemical dependency treatment program with chemical dependency as the primary diagnosis, or maintained at least 30 consecutive days of abstinence from chemical use.
During his four to six month stay, a resident works with the staff to develop his own treatment plan while building upon the Twelve Step principles of recovery and practices sober life skills by integrating Twelve Step philosophy into daily life, reinforced through individual and group counseling and wilderness treks. Upon leaving, each resident will have the skills needed for success and will understand that he needs the support of others in recovery to maintain sobriety.
Gray Wolf offers a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and includes, when necessary, the services of mental health professionals to assist with issues beyond addiction. We also offer the option of residence in one of our Port Townsend or Seattle sober houses for those graduates of our program for whom this is appropriate.
Gray Wolf is fully licensed by the State of Washington and accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Our wilderness trek program is accredited by the Association for Experiential Education.
