It’s been a long, cold winter. But if you’ve been suffering from addiction, the winter can be even colder and longer. Many addicts end up on the street and homeless, suffering from the ill-effects of exposure in addition to the damage from their addiction. Spring can be a time of renewal, and for the addict ready to start the long journey of recovery, it can be meaningful time for a fresh start both physically and mentally.
Getting in Touch with Your Body and Mind
Recovery is more than just detoxing your body and getting off whatever substance you were addicted to. It’s a way of changing your life and perspective. At Wasatch Crest drug and alcohol rehab in Heber City, Utah, we focus on reconnecting your mind, body, and spirit through a variety of programs that include adventure-based rehab and mindfulness training.
Why Adventure-Based Experiential Therapy?
One of the many components of addiction is that when you suffer from addiction, you often have low self-esteem or have suffered other trauma that makes you less trusting of others. In healing the whole person, we have found that adventure-based experiences help you accomplish what you previously believed you were incapable of doing. Along the way, you begin to rebuild your ability to trust others, because you rely on each other throughout the adventures. It can be a transformative experience that builds confidence as you build physical strength and regain your health.
Mindfulness Is Essential for Recovery
One of the things that addicts suffer from is a disconnect from their own feelings. Mindfulness helps you become more aware of your feelings and the decisions you are making to either address and acknowledge your feelings or minimize their importance. Mindfulness is a critical skill to learn for maintaining your sobriety once you leave Wasatch Crest.
