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.
