What are the benefits of wilderness and adventure programs?

One of the biggest benefits of wilderness programs is typically they are completely drug free, which means they take a more holistic and natural approach to treatment.

The other major benefit from these facilities is the on-going team work and collaboration with groups of people working together to overcome challenges. Nature can push people to the absolute physical limits, and there a sense of accomplishment and pride increasing ones self-esteem when an individual overcomes major barriers.
