Why Does Oasis River Recovery Offer Adventure Therapy?

Adventure therapy takes its roots in the wilderness therapy movement of the 1960s and has been adopted as a form of experiential therapy by recovery centers worldwide. We offer adventure therapy to give our patients a higher self-awareness using the extraordinary world around them. Thanks to Oasis River Recovery’s location, we are blessed with a wide range of nearby outdoor and physical experiences. Although one-on-one therapy is a vital part of treatment, we’ve tapped into the holistic experience of using outdoor activities to help our patients with mindfulness, social skills, and self-esteem.

Benefits Of Adventure Therapy For Addiction

Outdoor experiences and physical activities can be seen as a means of transformation. Over time, alcohol addictions, substance abuse disorders, and mental health issues can disconnect us from our inner strengths and personal resources. The adventure therapy treatment program can help rebuild your self-esteem and self-reliance, creating a happy and sensory-rich life.

While out on group expeditions, we use each moment to discuss how these activities help by using muscle movement to change thoughts and rewire cognitive brain functions. New activities can give expedition members hope on how to have fun while sober and overcome struggles using the same skills used to overcome physical obstacles. Based on your needs, adventure therapy can be a mental health, recovery, or addiction treatment program.
