Wilderness & Adventure Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Alaska

Alaska Wilderness and Adventure Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

The wilderness and adventure programs that operate within the state of Alaska include one facility located in the town of Wrangell; Alaska Crossing, which is a program from the Alaska Island Community Services. Wilderness and adventure programs have operated for some time within the United States, and provide unique treatment methods to help their patients. Despite offering traditional therapy and counseling, each facility will include numerous types of outdoor activities and adventures to assist with the overall therapy and re-entry back into society again.

Did you know this about Wilderness/Adventure programs?

This type of program is used to push people outside of their comfort zones. Individuals participating in these outdoor activities are taking part in a healthy lifestyle. Nature can be very therapeutic, which is why it is used a lot for substance abuse treatment.

Do these types of programs work?

Like every type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation, success is not guaranteed, but clients who are looking for something different and a type of treatment they feel they can connect to will certainly benefit from these programs. Many addicts will not be willing to be stuck in one place for his or her therapy, and will want to reconnect with nature and become a part of their surroundings. A wilderness and adventure program can provide all this for an addict, and their family.
