Change for struggling young adults starts at PulsaR
A place where young adults and their families conquer challenges to discover their full potential. PulsaR is set in the beautiful Southern Idaho Wilderness that offers various outdoor adventure activities to thrive in. We work with bright 18-28 year-olds to address behavioral or motivational attitudes effecting their success in life.
We help young adults build their confidence through self-success, boost their self-esteem, and guide them as they step outside of their comfort zone. PulsaR is focused around creating positive changes and improvements through engagement and adventure. Our supportive environment encourages clients to push themselves physically and emotionally to form lasting changes.
What makes PulsaR different?
We have a higher level of therapy than other programs, but in a very hands-on applied manner. For instance, we use adventure activities as teaching tools. We have clients that have never been in wilderness environments doing things they never would have imagined they were capable of doing.
The intensity and variety of experiences leads to larger therapeutic change in a shorter period of time. We use individual, group, equine, and family therapy to address challenges in every environment for our clients.

There she made remarkable progress. She learned how to cope with her anxiety and take charge of her responsibilties. Her expereince there likely improved the course of her life forever."-Parent
