Outdoor Survival Workshop
The Outdoor Survival Workshop is an Annual Team Building activity for the residents and is an important part of SELF’s Value Formation Program. It trains them to apply the life skills they acquired during their recovery process in an outdoor setting. Every year, an expedition of residents and staff journey to a beach resort where the participants are turned over to Team Ventures, a group of expert mountaineers, who have been our trusted partner in this activity for 25 years. Residents undergo structured outdoor activities, exercises, seminars, workshops, and games that provide the participants with outdoor survival skills that will be vital in their quest for sobriety. The Outdoor program is an integral part of SELF’s total wellness approach and is a prerequisite for graduation.
