Research supports taking treatment outside. www.obhcenter.org/projects
New studies and research continue to reveal the psychological benefits of nature, wilderness, and adventure experiences. All of the research points to the fact that the closer we are to nature, the more we heal, rejuvenate, connect to inspiration and our potential. Following treatment, our graduates return to cities across the country and we want to encourage and inspire our clients and the professionals they work with to find adventure wherever they may be.
