Wilderness & Adventure Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Oklahoma

Oklahoma Wilderness and Adventure Treatment Programs

The drug and alcohol rehabilitation process can be a difficult one for anyone who is going through it, and the family typically feels the full weight of their loved one's problems. Every type of drug and alcohol treatment center provides different forms of counseling and therapy, and some more specialized forms of treatment are available within the United States. These types of non-traditional programs include wilderness and adventure based rehab centers, which offer outdoor settings and rehabilitation within the wilderness. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration directory do not necessarily list which programs operating within the state provide wilderness and adventure based rehab.

What are some common treatment methods used? 

Some of the more familiar rehabilitation methods used within wilderness and adventure-based drug treatment are the one on one counseling, which can take part in the outdoors, and out of a conventional setting. Group meetings and group therapy can also occur, and again these group meetings will typically happen in the outdoors surrounded by nature. Because these are wilderness and adventure based programs, there are many different physical activities that will happen. This can include hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, boating, fishing, and even white-water rafting.
