Unity. Discovery. Empowerment.
Adventure therapy is an evidence based, experiential approach to group psychotherapy and counseling. Adventurous activities like hiking, ropes courses, and boating are a part of the curriculum at Bradford Recovery Center. Through adrenaline-pumping activities, patients discover new hobbies and interests that make them feel excited and energized without using drugs or alcohol.
Paving the Way for Powerful Change
Every new activity challenges patients to push their limits, but also brings out emotions and behavior patterns so therapists can assist in processing those emotions and channeling them in a constructive way. This type of experience is proven to aid in recovery from substance abuse and support mental health.
Adventure therapy also helps patients stay mindful of the present moment while building their skills and self-confidence.
