Group Therapy

Effective Small Group Therapy: In addition to the structured behavioral milieu and typical camp activities, Quest campers receive group therapy with a professional therapist or psychologist at least four times a week. During these sessions, Quest professional staff develop and evaluate campers’ individualized treatment plans, use methods to confront interpersonal issues as they arise, and address campers’ emotional and social reasoning skills. Quest therapeutic strategies have been uniquely developed to address the social, emotional, and cognitive skills that Quest campers need to be successful in their homes, at school, and among their peers.

Professional Staff: Quest employs at least one professional therapist or psychologist for every 24 campers. The professional staff trained to implement the Quest Therapeutic System, the product of over 30 years of Dr. Field’s clinical experience and over 20 years of Quest Camp application. Dr. Field maintains strict oversight and reviews each camp location to assure ongoing quality.

Insurance Coverage: While Quest cannot guarantee insurance coverage, Quest’s therapeutic program may be covered as reimbursed care through medical insurance. With increased coverage from the passage of the Mental Health Parity Act of 2009, effective advocacy can improve coverage. Quest’s services can be purchased through medical savings accounts, and/or FLEX spending accounts. Quest is considered an intensive structured outpatient program with daily group therapy and an ABA social skills training program. Programs in California and Pennsylvania can be covered as ABA services for children with a diagnosis of Autism.
