Researchers Show Impact of Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare More Lasting

University of New Hampshire

Now, a landmark study by researchers at the University of New Hampshire has found that parents of youth who went through an outdoor behavioral program report that their children showed almost three times the improvement after one year than youth who remained in their communities for more traditional treatment.
