Adventure Therapy

Adventure Therapy

Adventure therapy is a form of treatment that combines elements of nature, community, physical activity, and mental challenges for a thrilling approach to therapy. Adventure therapy intends to give people a chance for a more holistic experience. With evidence-based, experiential therapy and outdoor recreational activities in nature’s wildernesses, counselors set out to improve one’s mental well-being through activities that engage the physical, social, and spiritual aspects of a person’s character.

Silicon Valley Recovery’s adventure therapy is an actively engaged client experience to improve mental health. These excursions provide hands-on learning opportunities and experience how to enjoy life while sober, which we believe is critical for long-term sobriety. Whether indoors or outdoors (or rural/urban settings), this innovative therapy equips our individuals with new coping methods & interpersonal skills they can incorporate into their lives after treatment ends. These exciting experiences make time spent in a treatment program a more enjoyable and memorable experience.

How Adventure Therapy Works

The use of adventure therapies is an engaging way to encourage transformation. These activities are often conducted in groups, using the tasks to promote cooperation and trust among participants, while also presenting the opportunity to overcome personal challenges. Overall, this process helps people internalize what has happened during each activity, allowing counselors to facilitate discussions regarding how those experiences apply to their therapeutic goals.

Adventure Therapy and Addiction Treatment

Adventure Therapy forces you to forget about the turmoil of life and focus on overcoming the obstacle ahead of you. It’s a helpful metaphor for people who are in recovery from addiction and shows them that they have the ability to overcome difficult challenges they face. 

This therapy aims to help patients connect the challenges they face during their adventures with their current challenges in life in general. By doing this, they gain the confidence needed to overcome obstacles. Therapists also collaborate by providing support on everything from decision-making processes to viewing these activities as a form of relapse prevention. 

Silicon Valley Recovery’s professionally designed programs balance physical recovery and mental health with access to resources that help people confront their behaviors without being harshly judged or mistreated.

The skills learned through the programs at Silicon Valley Recovery will prepare you for a healthy lifestyle outside the program and equip you with the tools needed to handle cravings and minimize the chance of relapsing.
