Adventure therapy is a unique way to experience the positive benefits of a natural environment while also gaining the rewards of a therapeutic process. Studies show a link between intentionally engaging in the outdoors and an overall improvement in well-being.
Focus utilizes adventure therapy as an interactive way to aid in an individual recovery process. Adventure therapy is a twofold emphasis of first mindfully engaging in the outdoors and second the utilization of support and community to obtain one’s goals. This two-fold nature provides a practical skill set that the patient can use long after their individual recovery stay.
