- Lasting change
Lasting change is permanent or long-lasting positive change that comes from within a person. Lasting changes is achieved after a person actually completes or enlists the services of psychiatric treatment. As every individual is different, so is their course in achieving long lasting changes; while some methods may help some individuals, this does not mean that it will actually help all persons.
Those who are seeking change for their behavioral or emotional health, are looking for a Psychiatric change that will promote permanent changing qualities. However, not every person finds permanent positive change. One’s failure of achieving restoration may be because they sought after treatment that is ineffectual and gave up after the specific treatment failed to work. For individuals such as these, it is important to not merely ‘give up,’ but instead, look for treatments that best suit the needs of the particular individual.
Wilderness therapy is a relatively alternative, yet powerful approach to psychiatric treatment. While wilderness therapy is truly not for every individual, it has proven to be effective in treating those who seek not only change, but permanent growth and positive change as well.
