FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

While Aspiro is not contracted with any insurance company, we are able to provide you with a superbill that you can use to petition your insurance company for reimbursement. Whether an insurance company will reimburse families for any costs depends upon your individual insurance company and plan. Because insurance reimbursement is never guaranteed, families should be prepared to cover most, if not all, of the cost out of pocket.

Aspiro takes into account the financial burden that privately funded mental health care can place on a family. Aspiro works with partial scholarship sponsors including Sky’s The Limit Fund and the Parker Bounds Johnson Foundation that can assist qualified families. If you’d like more information on how Aspiro works with families to meet the financial obligations for the program, please contact an admissions counselor at (801) 349-2740 and they will work to assess your individual needs.

The average length of stay at Aspiro is 8 -12 weeks. Since the Aspiro program is truly individualized the length of stay is determined by your child’s and family’s progress in coordination with your therapist.

What Our Clients Say

"Aspiro gets 10 stars! The decision to send a child to a wilderness program is not an easy one. Everyone we dealt with at Aspiro was supportive and communicative throughout our time. We soon realized that the Aspiro program is a team effort. We were able to watch the process of self-awareness and ownership on our child’s part unfold. Our child has learned to take responsibility for herself and her actions, to communicate and be vulnerable with us, her peers, and her therapist. She is independent and self-reliant in a way we never would have thought possible. She went in a shutdown, broken soul, and came out glowing, smiling, and physically healthy."
Dobee S.
Aspiro Parent, California
Sending our son to Aspiro was one of the most difficult decisions we have had to make as parents. That being said, from admissions to discharge, the staff was knowledgeable, available, and supportive. In addition, our son's therapist was amazing both at developing a rapport quickly with our son and guiding us through this challenging time.
Margie L.
Aspiro Parent
"It has been almost 3 years since my daughter completed her time in the Aspiro wilderness program. It was an intervention that brought my daughter back and set the stage for a successful transition to a therapeutic boarding school where she has thrived as a result. Both she and I attribute her level of success to the incredible ability of her therapist to match the most appropriate therapeutic intervention to the child and at the right moment. I am forever grateful!"
