Outdoor Therapy

As a holistic treatment center, Wolf Creek Recovery focuses on healing the whole self.

Spending time in group and individual therapy is a critical component for those in addiction recovery, but we also believe that clients should have opportunities to be outdoors, soaking up the sun and connecting with Mother Nature.

Spending time outdoors has proven benefits that cannot be overlooked. Here at Wolf Creek Recovery, we enjoy watching our clients discover new activities and passions. These activities can be pursued long after addiction treatment to build healthy habits. In the process, our clients learn constructive ways to boost their physical, social, spiritual and psychological well-being.

If you used to be an active, adventurous person before your addiction, you will feel right at home at Wolf Creek Recovery! We’ll reconnect you with the things you used to love!

How Does Adventure and Outdoor Therapy Work?

Adventure therapy is a powerful tool in the addiction recovery process. It promotes growth, development and rehabilitation, as well as helps clients connect life experiences to their current outdoor activity. Through these activities, you’ll get to develop new skills and a sense of confidence as you tackle new challenges.

Fortunately, we have great weather on our side. Located in sunny Prescott AZ, outdoor activities are plentiful. We’ll take groups out to participate in structured activities where they can practice team building and communication, work on problem solving initiatives and enjoy freedom while being in control.

As with our other programs, we try to match our clients to the outdoor activities they enjoy. You are not required to participate in things you’re not comfortable with. Although, we always tell our clients to keep an open mind! You just never know when you’ll discover a new passion you didn’t know you had!

What are the Benefits of Outdoor Adventure Therapy?

Many of our clients end up having so much fun when participating in outdoor activities, they forget they’re even part of a rehab program! We hope to see you learn and grow in new environments as well.

Here are some of the advantages to participating in adventure therapy:

  • Promote a sense of responsibility
  • Build positive relationships
  • Work on positive social skills like conflict resolution
  • Improve self-awareness and self-confidence
  • Increase resiliency
  • Develop healthy coping skills

Recreational Team Sports at Wolf Creek

In addition to outdoor activities like camping, canoeing and paddle boarding, Wolf Creek also offers a number of sports for clients to participate in. Even if you don’t consider yourself a sports person, there are a number of different things for you to try, including softball, tennis, pickleball, disc golf, golf therapy and basketball.

Like adventure therapy, sports introduce people in recovery to healthy activities they can practice outside of treatment. If you discover that you do indeed enjoy tennis or have a natural talent for golf, you’ll automatically have a healthy pastime to pursue.

Wolf Creek Recovery chooses to offer sports at our facility because they:

  • Improve communication
  • Encourage clients to make snap decisions under pressure
  • Facilitate teamwork and working toward a common goal
  • Require people to manage their time
  • Build self-esteem and close community ties

Discover Your Passions in a Safe, Structured Setting

As you can see, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy during your time at Wolf Creek Recovery. You are welcome to participate in any of these activities. As always, we encourage our clients to be open to trying new things, even if it’s outside their comfort zone. You’ll still be doing these things within a safe, nurturing space, so now is the time to spread your wings and see what types of passions lie within!
