Adventure Based Therapies

Facilitated by a team of master’s level therapists with extensive experience working with substance abuse and the challenges of early recovery, adventure-based therapy is an emerging, cutting-edge treatment which focuses on physically active and experiential approaches that engage, challenge and educate. Adventure-Based Therapies are an important part of the curriculum at Anchor Bay Recovery. Adventure activities like rope-courses, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and cycling are designed to embody lessons and skills that teach individuals how to overcome life’s difficult situations and gain valuable personal insights. We utilize physical activity, the natural environment and especially designed experiential activities that elicit powerful emotions and allow you the opportunity to practice coping mechanisms in a real-world environment followed by in depth processing, gentle yet powerful challenges, and environmental inspiration.

Be the change you want to see in the world. — Gandhi


Kayaks are a wonderful way to explore teamwork and problem solving abilities. We use double and single kayaks to create learning objectives and to challenge problem solving abilities.


Bicycles! A childhood favorite for many. Cycling groups provide opportunities for environmental exploration, insight into self, a challenge to problem solving abilities, and lessons in mindfulness.

Ropes Courses

Low Ropes activities focus on collaboration; the challenges, games and initiatives call upon every member of the group to participate, and they present unending opportunities for self-discovery and team growth. These activities take place in various parks in the area and usually involve various props. These types of groups are accessible to a variety of individuals and can be customized to fit the needs of your group.

Life Skills Coaching

Life skills coaching can help our clients with career planning and development, finances and budgeting, motivation, stress management and life balance.


Utilizing the hiking trails of our local parks, our hiking groups allow for exploration of the lessons that nature has to offer us. During these hikes we practice mindfulness and meditation, along with the occasional structured activity to help challenge the process. Geocaching is a favorite activity of ours as it can push you off the beaten trail.


Our snorkeling groups really focus around the idea of learning mindfulness and gaining insight into one’s self.  These groups are considered an advanced group due to the higher risk of being in the water. Scheduling a snorkeling group will involve working around the times of the tide.

Holistic therapies

Providing a wide variety of therapies such as mind-body therapies, yoga, healthy nutrition, exercise, creative arts therapies, acupuncture and more, Anchor Bay Recovery is able to treat the whole person rather than only a single element of an individual’s symptoms or behaviors.
