Seven Ponds Referrals & Renewal - Mental health recovery | Drug treatment center
The Seven Ponds Spiritual Retreat is set just north of the Red River on the famous Trail of
Tears. This unique area, often referred to as Texoma, offers a wealth of wilderness experiences
and spiritual habitats.
The primary purpose of our Wilderness programming centers on the power of nature in
impacting behavioral change and critical thinking. At times referred to as Eco-therapy, Harvard
biologist Edward Wilson simply states “ecosystems, nature, can put us back together, make us
feel whole”. He’s right. We’ve been taking participants into the wild for years to initiate change
in their physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual platforms that form the core of their
respective self- defeating thinking and subsequent behaviors. Led by a former Army Ranger and
professional wilderness guides, participants’ experience 10 to 20 days of daily activities
designed to refocus their value system and self- perception.
Wilderness activities always begin on our refurbished 100 year old ranch located in between the
Red and Blue Rivers on the Oklahoma / Texas border, often referred to as Texoma. The
program enrolls 6-8 participants who have been accepted by referrals and appropriateness for
the wilderness setting. The program is taxing both physically and mentally.
While in base camp, everyone enrolled participates in individual daily routines that include
physical fitness, nutritional education and food preparation, staff interaction, as well as life
coaching, meditation, journaling, forestry, and team building. All the activities are goal centered
as each participant delineates their respective strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. Along
with family input these activities assist staff in designing activities focused on cognitive
realignment and identification of irrational thinking that supports self- defeating decision
making while promoting anti- social personality development.
