North Dakota Substance Abuse Treatment Providing Wilderness and Adventure Bases Therapy
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website directory will provide the contact information for all attainable substance abuse treatment programs, mental health services, addiction services, and other health programs within the state of North Dakota. Despite there being some specific categories available on the website, there is no direct listing of which facilities within the state provide wilderness and adventure based drug treatment. This type of rehabilitation is becoming very popular throughout the United States, because it is a non-conventional and non-traditional approach to drug rehabilitation.
What is unique about wilderness adventure programs?
Many addicts never check themselves into drug treatment for a variety of reasons, and one of these reasons is some addicts feel most drug rehab centers are hospital type settings. Being back in nature is very tranquil and serene and can take an addict who is surrounded by negative influences, and be put in a place where noting but a positive influence will take place. The patient does not typically spend a great deal of time indoors, and this is what makes these programs very unique.
