Addiction treatment is not all about sitting in therapy and endlessly talking. Lessons can be learned in a variety of ways, including adventure therapy, animal therapy, and exercise. These therapies provide real-time feedback about how your environment or situation impacts your thinking and decision-making. After the activity, processing, reflecting, and discussing the activity can further integrate these lessons. At the same time, successful completion of a challenge helps you develop self-esteem and confidence. Plus, these activities are incredibly enjoyable, often once-in-a-lifetime adventures.
