Beartooth Mountain Ascent Mission Statement
Here at Beartooth Mountain Ascent we aspire to educate, or, to draw out, each young man to be the true man that God has created him to be by forming him mentally, physically, and spiritually through a “reality therapy” environment. We will help the young man as he heals from his wounds and form him in the forge that is the heart of Christ. Through this process, the young man will re-form his moral consciousness, be taught virtue, work on mending family relationships, and ultimately, become the best version of himself; the man God created him to be.
What do we do?
At Beartooth Mountain Ascent we encourage positive work ethic while working with cattle and horses, completing ranch jobs, and engaging in therapy. We believe that the only difference between the young man and us is one decision, and we hope to help him, through this cowboy life experience, learn the positive effects of his intrinsically good nature. Being a Catholic Christian working cattle ranch, all staff model the Christian virtues, and, as the young man progresses through the program, we help him to emulate those same virtues.
Why are we different?
Unlike other traditional rehabs that offer a set of circumstances by which a young man can hope to stay sober in, we offer the young man a chance to be independent of circumstance. We teach each young man that it is their own will and intellect that can keep them clean, safe, and mature. By having the young men focus on work, and experience therapy that centers around their present decisions and their future, we can retrain their brains to look to success and healthy application of their skills. Rather than use the past as a teaching device which can often lead to shame, an unhealthy manifestation of guilt, we let them experience, understand, and learn from the current habits they exhibit here. This helps remove them from a certain “rut” of thinking and acting from the past, and encourages growth toward a brighter future.
Are we right for your son?
Your son is unique, irreplaceable, unrepeatable, and beloved. Our primary goal is transformative healing that comes from a greater knowledge and deeper relationship with ones-self and with God. If you think that your son could benefit from some time away from his current circumstances, why not send him out here to this 40,000-acre working cattle ranch to experience this transitional living program? It is nothing short of a long-term retreat with a dedicated staff and a solid curriculum that can provide your son the opportunity to change. Allow us the opportunity to help you and your son. Call us today, or visit our website to see if your son can benefit from this unique opportunity.
