Our Drug & Alcohol Addiction Adventure-Based Treatment Programs

All of the programs at Four Circles Recovery Center include an adventure-based therapy component. Our addiction rehab is based on the 12-Step philosophy, and is a holistic modality that treats the four realms of health: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. As drug addiction affects men and women differently, Four Circles is pleased to offer gender-specific treatment tracks.

Learn About Our Outdoor Program for Drug & Alcohol Addiction

How can being in the outdoors assist with recovery from substance abuse or chemical dependency?  There are many gifts that come from the adventure of being in a treatment program that takes advantage of the natural world around us, not the least of which is that the experience itself is an adventure. While more traditional drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs allow you to have an adventure on an internal level, exploring parts of yourself you may not have been in touch with before, Four Circles’ outdoor, adventure-based program allows you to go on a transformational journey of self-discovery – a pilgrimage that is both internal and external.

As you explore our fascinating natural world, you also explore the fascinating world that lies within you.
