Rediscover Natural Thrills in Marietta, GA
We believe in treating the whole person at Metro Atlanta Treatment. We understand that addiction impacts every area of life, from work to relationships, health, and overall wellbeing. One treatment component we offer is adventure-based counseling. We are located near Kennesaw Mountain and Lake Allatoona, both of which are ideal sites for our recreation therapists to introduce you to beautiful views and time on the water.
Why do You Offer Adventure-Based Counseling?
At Metro Atlanta Treatment in Marietta, GA, we cannot overstate the healing power of nature. Being outside offers you an opportunity to understand how you fit into the world around you. From a scientific perspective, physical exertion has also been proven to provide powerful benefits, including releasing neurotransmitters to help your brain heal during early-recovery, deepening the lessons you have learned during talk therapy, complementing significant life changes, and offering a positive outlet for stress, anxiety, fear, and other emotions that can be harmful. Finally, recovery should be a positive experience – and adventures are fun!
What Is Adventure-Based Counseling?
One of the benefits of recovery is learning to have fun without chemical dependency. Helping to facilitate these fun experiences in a safe and secure environment is another unique benefit Metro Atlanta Treatment offers. Led by industry experts in recreation therapy, some of our adventure-based counseling activities include:
- Paddle Boating
- Hiking/Nature Walks
- Equine Therapy
- Ropes Courses

The disease of addiction draws strength from isolation, so we believe we need to combat it with connectivity! Fostering healthy relationships is a crucial part of recovery that can come difficultly to someone fresh in recovery. At Metro Atlanta Treatment, we want to connect with you and help you to connect with others.
The process of recovery requires you to make a great deal of changes. This demands everyone involved enter this experience with the willingness to try something new. We leave fear and a biased attitude at the door, with an understanding that each individual is in need of something different to succeed.
Getting sober does not mean life becomes stale. We practice having enjoyment on your journey through recreation, discovery, and entertainment. We’ve found incorporating this fundamental piece into the therapeutic process is a breath of fresh and fun air to the recovering individual!
It has been said that knowledge is power. In your battle with the disease of addiction, having an understanding of what you’re experiencing gives you the potential to gain back some of the power you’ve been stripped of. We want to create awareness of the pitfalls, coping mechanisms, tools and resources you need to fight back with competency.
