09 Jul Wilderness Therapy Aftercare: How to Cement a Foundation in Recovery
Wilderness Therapy is an effective introduction into recovery from addiction. It allows an individual to be separated from their old environments while learning to live drug free with increased self-esteem and self-insight. In the isolated and supportive setting that wilderness therapy centers provide, individuals are given the time to focus on themselves and their recovery.
Is Wilderness Therapy Aftercare Necessary? Why is it important?
Most wilderness therapy programs place a strong focus on addressing behavioral issues and individuals struggling with issues such as depression, anger, self-esteem and drug abuse. In turn, Individuals who have completed wilderness therapy feel invigorated, confident, stronger, and healthier than they have in a long time.
Wilderness therapy aftercare centers provide a safe-place for individuals to further develop on the basic tools they acquired in wilderness treatment. There, individuals get to practice those tools and gradually reintegrate back into normal society. There is a strong, positive correlation between the length of support one receives with recovery and the potential for long-term success. Wilderness treatment aftercare provides exactly that: a long-term safe-haven for newly recovering addicts to build upon the tools they began to acquire while in their wilderness programs.
