Wilderness & Adventure Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Florida

Florida Drug and Alcohol Treatment Wilderness Programs

Thousands of people struggle with addiction within the state of Florida, and because of this there are many forms and methods of treatment to help treat all these types of addictions. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website, despite providing an extensive directory of the resources operating within the state there are no specific listings of services, such as wilderness and adventure drug treatment programs. These types of facilities do provide unique and different methods to help treat addiction, and much of it is based outdoors within the wilderness. This can be wilderness and nature hikes, outdoor adventure, and experienced based therapy for addicts and his or her families.

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.

Are wilderness and adventure programs private facilities?

Typically yes, however, many of the programs that offer adventure based treatment can accept forms of health insurance to help offset some or all the cost. Wilderness and adventure based drug rehabilitation programs are usually residential centers, and this will often mean there will be a cost to house the patient and pay for the treatment services. Private drug rehab centers can start at about $10,000 and go up from there but do offer long-term options and aftercare for patients.
