I have been a steady member of 12 step programs ever since I got clean, but have always felt like there was an element of health, adventure, and fellowship that I didn’t experience in the rooms. Jake helped me to achieve that element of my recovery that I knew I needed.
Without Jake’s ability to listen to me without judgement, remind me of my worth and purpose, and provide me with encouragement to never give up, I might not be alive today.
He has been there for me during thick and thin… he has been an instrumental part of my healing, growth, and enjoyment of life in recovery. I couldn’t recommend him enough as a coach and mentor! - Jon B.

“I had a great time and am looking forward to future excursions w/ Natural Highs. I just got to recovery... I’m only on my 3rd day here [in treatment] and my spirits were waning. The walk outside in nature not only lifted my spirits but I feel like it brought us as a new group closer together, which are both integral parts of recovery. Thank you Natural Highs!” - Anonymous 1

"I had an absolutely unforgettable experience with Natural Highs guiding services! Jake was able to take me all the way from learning to build a simple top roping system during our introductory lesson to successfully completing my first multi-pitch expedition of over 600 feet during our last lesson. If you choose to take advantage of any rock climbing service that is provided by this company, I personally guarantee that you will be extremely satisfied!" - Daniel B.

"Going climbing with Jake was awesome! I'd gone climbing outside a few times prior, and my experience with Jacob Yoder was by far the best. He was very informational, and showed us the strategy behind everything he did... We learned a lot, and the experienced was very personalized and flexible." - Jonah M.
"Jake's greatest asset is his genuine curiosity and present-mindedness when talking to anyone... He actually cares about what people have to say" ... Varun Gopinath
Jake led my wife, my friend Adam, and I up to the summit of the Grand Teton in Wyoming, making sure that we summited safely as well as reached our base camp all in one piece. This required skills in logistical planning, communication, orienteering, general mountaineering, and maintaining a positive mindset when the going got tough. As I was an inexperienced climber there were times where Jake aided me when overcoming mental barriers... his positive level headedness helped guide me through an unforgettable experience that tested the core of my mental and physical capabilities. - Varun G.
“Looking back, I can't Imagine having such profound internal discoveries had it not been for Jake, Lindsey, and Varun...
This wild and beautiful moment challenged me to believe I am capable of so much more. And now as I carry these lessons with me, if I find myself thinking something is mentally or physically draining, I look back to that day and I can't help but crack a smile.” - Adam C.
