Empowering Women (Navigating the great outdoors)
Updated: Mar 9, 2019
Research suggests that women achieve greater gains in nature than do men in recovery. Women soon discover resilience and self-efficacy. The realization that they can be self-reliant is extremely powerful. Adventure therapy gets women out in nature, gets them moving, and experiencing the metaphors that only nature can offer. The Juniper Canyon women experience rock climbing, repelling, canyoneering, mountain biking, and fly fishing to name a view of the adventures they are able to enjoy. It gives them an opportunity to learn new skills that they can use after recovery. Enjoying life sober!
