Nature and Relaxation Therapy

Nature has almost become non-existent to people who are in addiction and using because they isolate themselves. Some people here can't remember how to smell a flower; they've stopped seeing the seasons; they've stopped enjoying the day-to-day beauty of life. So we have a lot of nature trails and nature activities involving water, just the leaves around you, just the grass that you tread on, so that they start appreciating just the gift of life itself and the five senses that they have. We try to help them restore those senses, appreciate them, so they are totally aware of everything that's going on around them because during use, they often have lost all awareness of what is actually going on around them. Their whole drive is to get to the next opportunity to find their "numbing out" source.
