At Black Bear Lodge, our restorative forest location lends itself to a number of outdoor options for adventure therapy and recreational activities. We believe that therapeutic recreation can offer critical processing time and a much-needed contrast to traditional talk therapies.
We encourage our patients to participate in positive habits that promote overall recovery, such as regular exercise. Adventure therapy not only supports the goal of physical rehabilitation and self-care, but it provides opportunities for team-building through recreational activities. Patients may also discover new passions and hobbies through these activities that will help them rebuild their lives in recovery.
While in attendance at Black Bear Lodge, patients can experience the wealth of nature that our surroundings have to offer through walks and hikes. Our area is filled with trails, natural water sources and scenic views. Some adventures may include:
- Equine therapy (weekly)
- Ziplining (weekly)
- Horseback riding (monthly)
- Hike on Mt. Yonah (weekly, with approval from clinical staff)
