Is Wilderness Therapy As Effective As Traditional Methods?

Is Wilderness Therapy As Effective As Traditional Methods?

,

 

heroinWhen families are in need of help, their first choice is often a treatment program that uses a traditional therapeutic approach. While these programs can be effective in some cases, there are other options that can be a much better choice. For example, wilderness therapy has proven itself to be much more effective in bringing about long-term change and improvement in troubled teens and young adults. At Wingate, we pride ourselves in using this method to change the lives of those who come to us for help.

All The Advantages Of Traditional Therapy With Many Additional Benefits

One of the major benefits of choosing a wilderness therapy program is the fact that it pushes the patient outside of their comfort zone. Spending an extended period of time living in the wilderness is a radically different lifestyle than what most people are used to, and this change allows for tremendous personal growth. As teens and young adults are getting used to this new lifestyle, our counselors take advantage of the circumstances to encourage them to develop useful character traits like self-discipline and responsibility. This in turn allows our therapy to be more effective, as the person will be more open to accepting personal responsibility for their actions. All of these factors work together to make the wilderness the perfect setting for a in-depth therapeutic treatment program designed to bring about permanent change.
