Adventure Therapy

Suwanee Adventure Therapy


Adventure therapy incorporates a variety of fun, safe, and challenging activities that make attending addiction treatments fun. The objective behind the adventure therapy program at The Carter Treatment Center is to help enhance personal growth and team building.

The skilled team at The Carter Treatment Center will help to engage you in a range of meaningful activities designed to bring purpose and focus into your life.

Some commonly used activities may include:

  • Hiking
  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Tennis
  • Team sports
  • Kayaking & More

Adventure therapy has a number of significant benefits as a part of any good addiction treatment program, including helping to improve your confidence and self-esteem levels and you break out of your past comfort zones.


Participating in adventure therapy also helps you to overcome fears as you learn the basics behind each activity, which is a fun and inspiring way to attain personal growth. Even if you’ve never experienced some of the outdoor activities we have available, choosing to participate anyway is a great opportunity to learn about positive risk taking.

From time to time, you may also choose to participate in team sports, which gives you a good opportunity to work on team building skills. You may even find you have a hidden talent for leadership when working in a positive environment with a team of peers. You might just surprise yourself by finding a new activity you really enjoy, which helps you develop a sense of personal achievement in what you can accomplish when you try.


The majority of your addiction treatments and therapies involve spending time indoors with counselors and therapists. However, adventure therapy takes you outdoors, where you’re given plenty of space to just experience nature in your own time without being asked to discuss anything. You’re there to have fun and learn about your own capabilities.

We’ll help you overcome the cycle of addiction and learn fun ways to live a healthy, drug-free life permanently. We frequently receive patients from Roswell, John’s Creek, Gainesville, Milton, Canton, and Dawsonville.
