Phase Two Therapies and Skills:
Wolf Creek Recovery is committed to offering a full continuum of care, with each stage playing its part in the healing process. Here are some of the things you’ll be working on during your time at our recovery center.
Evidence-based therapies such as individual therapy, family therapy and trauma therapy will continue in Phase Two. Talk therapy is critical to the healing process, so we encourage our clients to continue their sessions. By now, you may be aware of what led to the substance use and how to better manage your emotions.
However, it’s also possible that you’re just breaking through. It takes some clients time to open up to their therapist and uncover hidden emotions. There is no set pace you have to follow as long as you are making progress.
Individual therapy will continue teaching you about yourself, while family therapy will continue restoring your family relationships. This is important for continued growth and development, particularly for those with dual diagnosis. In order for full healing to occur, both the mental illness and substance use disorder must be treated.
Outdoor adventure therapy is offered as part of our holistic therapy program. We strongly encourage clients to spend time outdoors whether it’s to play a sport or take in the sights and sounds around them. This is an effective way to inspire emotional healing, escape from a daily routine and see your problems in a new light.
One outdoor activity that most people seem to love is golf. Golf provides mental well-being benefits, including improved confidence, improved self-esteem and decreased anxiety. You can also enjoy an intense workout thanks to walking, swinging and carrying your bag. This is also a sport you can enjoy on your own or with a group of people.
If you’re not one to golf, we have plenty of other outdoor activities to try. We offer them to help clients build healthy habits and find alternative ways to cope with stress. And what better way to accomplish this than through nature, something that is accessible to everyone.
The key benefits to staying active outdoors are:
- Overcome mental health challenges
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
- Enhance creativity and problem solving
- Discover your sense of purpose
- Encourage self-reflection and self-awareness
