Adventure Therapy

Seaglass Recovery offers two different types of adventure therapy to our guests. Physical activity promotes overall well-being, and encourages guests to develop a regular exercise regimen. Our adventure therapy consists of kayaking and hiking.

What is Adventure Therapy?

Adventure therapy is an objective-focused form of therapy, combining guests’ active participation in their treatment with the transformative power of nature and physical fitness. While in active addiction, the physical body is typically neglected and often abused. In early recovery in particular, physical activity is incredibly important to begin the healing process.

Goal Focused

According to The Mayo Clinic, several benefits of exercise include:

  • Improved mood
  • Increased endorphin production
  • Stress relief
  • Increased overall well-being

Physical Wellness for Healing

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Psychological Association (APA), and Harvard Medical School have conducted studies supporting that exercise can reduce depression and improve cognitive function. Intense physical activity can also reduce stress immediately, raising cortisol levels in the body.

Adventure Therapy for Women



Our kayaking outings are a great team building exercise as well as an excellent tool to promote individual growth. Group kayaking facilitates teamwork, problem-solving, effective communication, improves self-worth and self-esteem. Additionally, kayaking may help alleviate symptoms of co-occurring disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Beyond being an excellent form of physical exercise, kayaking also provides a purposeful mindfulness exercise. The picturesque landscape of Prescott, Arizona brings an incredible opportunity to connect with nature and its abundance of beauty. Guests will experience a feeling of serenity and peace within themselves­—undoubtably a reflection of their surroundings.

Kayaking offers a calming, therapeutic experience that provides a mental, spiritual, and spiritual escape. It can be a truly healing experience under the right circumstances, which is why Seaglass Recovery incorporates this therapy into our programming.


Seaglass Recovery believes in the power of group therapy, and our hiking outings are an extension of that setting. Hiking is a fun way for guests to forge friendships with one another, develop communication skills, and employ teamwork. Guests can step outside of their comfort zones in a safe environment, facing personal fears while growing in the process.

The incredible scenery of Prescott, Arizona, lends itself beautifully to a hiking experience filled with serenity and inner reflection. Beyond physical well-being, hiking can be quite a spiritual experience. Some guests may choose to connect with nature on a more intimate level, allowing themselves to receive the healing power of the earth.

Additionally, hiking can build trust, promote self-confidence, increase self-esteem, and build up physical strength and endurance. Our hiking outings also teach guests how to use interpersonal effectiveness techniques with their fellow peers.


Seaglass Recovery always puts our guests first, with their physical and mental well-being as our number one priority. We continuously strive for excellence in order to bring our guests’ the best treatment outcomes possible.
