Adventure Therapy

Silicon Valley Recovery is located in one of the most exciting areas in the country, and we take full advantage of the sunny days and nature that surround our facility with our Adventure Therapy offerings!
Adventure therapy is a unique approach to recovery that uses adventure-based activities to promote healing and growth. Unlike traditional therapy, which often takes place in an office setting, adventure therapy takes advantage of the natural world to provide a more mindful experience. This type of therapy is particularly effective for those struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse.  By working with a trained therapist, clients can learn to overcome obstacles, develop new skills for managing difficult situations, and build more meaningful relationships with their peers as they connect through these activities. We also believe that staying active and getting exercise plays a significant role in holistic recovery, so our clients also have access to a fully equipped, top-of-the-line gym during designated fitness and free times. 

How It 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 Benefits










Adventure Therapy Programs
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 adventure therapy 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.

Beach & Nature Outings

There is something special about nature that can help heal the mind, body, and soul. That’s why our programs are mindful to include nature outings in serene outdoor settings which we’ve found to be therapeutic to those seeking recovery from addiction. Silicon Valley Recovery takes full advantage of our beautiful California location by taking our residents on nature outings and beach trips as part of our adventure therapy options. Adventure therapy can be a helpful part of treatment, our beach trips and nature outings offer a variety of benefits to aid in our client’s healing journey.

Being in nature can help to reduce stress and anxiety, boost mood, and increase feelings of well-being. Nature outings can also provide opportunities to incorporate exercise, social interaction, and creative expression into a treatment program. We find that our outings help to promote a sense of connection to something larger than oneself, and many of our alumni have said our adventure therapy outings was their favorite part of their treatment program.
