This workshop will present the rationale for using adventure-based activities with people in recovery. The perceived risk in adventure can serve as a substitute for other genuinely dangerous risky behavior. Mutual support and integrity are also stressed. Several activities will be demonstrated.

Attendees will be able to….
1.) facilitate several activities that will aid people recovering from addictions;
2.) apply the concepts of adventure-based therapy to the process of recovery;
3.) select activities appropriate for specific stages of recovery.
