Wilderness & Adventure Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Washington

Washington Wilderness and Adventure Treatment Programs

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration do provide a website directory for each state, that lists what addiction and mental health services are on hand within the state. Within Washington are many different drug and alcohol treatment resources, and this does include some wilderness, and adventure based treatment programs. Unfortunately, on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website is no category for non-traditional programs such as wilderness and adventure based treatment.

Does most of the therapy take place outdoors?

Yes, the vast majority of the therapy and wilderness excursions will take place outdoors, and typically there will be a facility close by where some of the conventional therapies will be taking place. Outdoor environments provide a great atmosphere for healing, and will help lower a person's stress, and increase a persons self-awareness, which will help contribute to his or her therapy. Outdoor wilderness and adventure based programs can help any type of addiction or simply troubled teens.
