When challenges arise in our lives we often stumble. EDGE Adventures staff understand the change process and how to support you in correcting course and standing taller than you have before. Our experienced, caring, licensed clinicians lead adventures and provide other services for individuals and families struggling with the impact of:
  • substance abuse
  • anxiety and depression
  • grief/loss
  • family issues
  • other therapeutic concerns
We partner with you and your system of support—family, friends, and professionals—to design experiences that will grow your understanding of the challenges ahead and equip you with the strength and skills necessary to successfully move forward. Our Therapeutic Adventures include:

Therapeutically-focused Recreation: These adventures add a focused, intentionally therapeutic aspect to our Recreational Adventures.

Family Challenge: An adventure program that teaches skills and enhances support using challenge, metaphor, and the insight of our experienced, licensed clinicians.

Ascent Group: An aftercare group that uses experiential techniques to support families of adolescents recovering from substance abuse or other addictions on their journey of hope.

In addition to working directly with individuals and families, we appreciate our relationships with other therapists and educational consultants. Please contact Mary Beth Kerf at marybethkerf@edgeadventures.org or 847-520-2915, to discuss partnerships with your program.
