Wilderness & Adventure Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Arizona

Arizona Drug and Alcohol Treatment Wilderness and Adventure Programs

Situated throughout the state of Arizona are a few different wilderness and adventure programs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website, despite providing an extensive directory of available treatment services in Arizona, there is no list of any wilderness and adventure programs on hand. The wilderness treatment centers who do operate within the state are in the cities of Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale and Prescott, providing necessary treatment services for addicts of all ages. A wilderness and adventure treatment center are excellent programs for addicts who are looking for a unique approach to rehabilitation.

What is adventure based therapy?

Adventure based therapy is different than traditional psychotherapy, and has an comprehensive philosophy of experiential education, which is direct experience within a structured learning environment. These types of programs will drastically improve a person's self esteem, trust, pro-social behavior qualities, and create an overall positive outcome. Much of this therapy is within a wilderness setting, and can help a patient with any type of behavioral problem or in this case, a drug and or alcohol problem.
