Dr. Rod Nadeau is an adventure-based counselor. He takes extremely at-risk youth from around southern Maine on outdoor excursions (mountain biking, white water rafting, mountain climbing, etc.) to broaden horizons, knock down cognitive barriers, and to educate students about the difference between unhealthy risks (drugs, violence, crime) and healthy risks.

During the bitter Maine winters, he takes students out to a secret climbing spot and teaches them the basics of what many consider a dangerous, intimidating sport.
