Monthly experiential outings

Experiential therapy is a type of therapy that involves actively participating in activities or exercises, rather than just talking about experiences or feelings. The goal of experiential therapy is to help people understand and address their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a more direct and meaningful way. Experiential therapy can be beneficial for people in early recovery from substance abuse for a number of reasons:

  1. Engaging and interactive: Experiential therapy is often more engaging and interactive than traditional talk therapy, which can be especially helpful for people who may be resistant to traditional forms of treatment.
  2. Provides new experiences: Experiential therapy can provide people with new experiences and challenges that can help them learn and grow.
  3. Helps to process emotions: Experiential therapy can provide a safe and supportive environment for people to process and express their emotions in a healthy way.
  4. Promotes self-awareness: Experiential therapy can help people become more self-aware and understand their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.


Examples of experiential therapy activities might include role-playing, art therapy, outdoor adventure therapy, and animal-assisted therapy. It’s important to note that experiential therapy should be conducted by a trained and qualified therapist in a safe and supportive environment.
