Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Wilderness Programs

Much of it promotes negative thinking and actions will lead to a unwilling outcome, where as positive thinking and actions will of course lead to a more favorable outcome. The whole process also ensures bad habits are replaced by good ones, and the patient gains new and valuable skills to maintain sobriety. Wilderness and adventure programs often help build a persons self-esteem and self-worth in life, which will help them make positive and smart choices in life.
