Addiction Recovery and Greenspace
Struggling with addiction recovery is a continual battle that many people face. Health systems across the world have not yet responded adequately to the current burden of addiction, and the challenges someone faces on the road to recovery can feel overwhelming. People often think counselling, group support, and being ready to face the challenges are all you need for your road to recovery. However, the road to addiction recovery can also be benefited by Greenspace.
Greenspace is a term used to describe either maintained or unmaintained environmental areas, which can include nature reserves, wilderness environments and urban parks. There is good evidence of a positive relationship between levels of greenspace and well-being. Greenspace can help reduce anxiety, depression, and provide an overall feeling of peace and tranquility. Natural environments can promote positive psychological experiences and in turn promotes well-being.
Greenspaces are often used in a targeted way to deliver structured therapeutic interventions for vulnerable groups. Interventions that are commonly used include wilderness therapy, social and therapeutic horticulture, facilitated environmental conservation, care farming, eco-therapy, nature-based arts and crafts, and animal-assisted interventions. The tranquility of our environment helps you find your tranquility.
