Addiction negatively affects many aspects of a person’s life. When a person has an addiction, his or her mental and physical health is compromised. Addiction takes over the way the brain functions, controls a person’s behavior, mood, relationships, work, and well-being, and results in negative consequences.

Treatment that incorporates mind, body, and spirit is beneficial to a person’s recovery. Spending time in nature or a natural setting is proven to recover mental, physical, and spiritual health. This type of treatment promotes a healthy, substance-free lifestyle and allows a person to get in touch with his or herself. Clearing the mind in an oxygen-rich environment helps the brain to heal and function without substance dependency.

Many residential treatment programs are located in a remote, serene, and natural setting. Removing toxins such as substances or everyday life has tremendous benefits for a person’s health and recovery. Treatment in an oxygen-rich environment includes nature excursions in lush green landscapes.

Spending more time in nature improves mental health. Symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and stress are significantly reduced while self-image, confidence, and self-worth increase. Oxygen is proven to strengthen the brain physically and mentally. Being in a natural environment helps boost morale, reduce stress, and makes the recovery process much easier.

Richard Louv, author of The Nature Principal wrote about the healing qualities of nature. He discussed how nature provides healing for our mind and body, and that Vitamin “N” (nature) should be in everyone’s diet. People who struggle with substance use disorders are disconnected from their environment and their senses are shut down. According to Sarah A. Benton, MS, LMHC, LPC, who wrote about nature and recovery for Psychology Today, “Healthy recovery can be an awakening of the senses and mindfulness of your surroundings.”
