Wilderness Programs Help Build Self-Esteem

Spending long periods of time in nature and surrounded by the wilderness will definitely help a person build up his or her self-esteem and self-worth, and this is because during any wilderness and adventure program, a patient will have to overcome small and big challenges. Overcoming these challenges will prove to an addict that they can push through any type of barrier and problem, and this can be applied to their lives.
