The stress and pressures of everyday life can take their toll on any person around the globe. Not only occurring in North America, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, ODD or ADHD to name just a few afflictions, seem to be more common then many may realize. People from all over the world suffer from a variety of emotional and behavioral issues, often resulting in making poor, unhealthy life choices. Although the causes of these issues may differ from person to person, the hopes of these individuals and their families remain very similar; to find effective treatments to help get them on track to a healthier style of life. Wilderness adventure therapy may just be what these individuals and families are looking for.
Removing the individual, even internationally from any negative influences allows them to focus on reaching the treatment goals they have set for themselves. A quiet location allows the person to reflect on their past actions, the effect of those actions on themselves and those around them. Ultimately, these individuals will understand and take responsibility for their actions of the past, present and future.
Offering an alternative to a traditional boot camp, wilderness adventure therapy will combine traditional therapies with a natural health and wellness approach. It will empower students to overcome challenges using skills and abilities they may not even be aware they have. Students will learn new methods of dealing with the many obstacles they are faced with in daily life.
With a variety of intense but nurturing therapies, any underlying issues that may be contributing to the students poor behaviors will be identified. Effective wilderness adventure therapy is designed to treat the individual as a whole and not just the symptoms.
