Abstract

These cases explore the data collected from Shunda. Shunda is an adventure therapy program in Alberta, Canada that works with young adult substance users. The demographics of the program's population are all male. The cases presented examine multiple areas of personal development using a variety of instruments. The instruments focused on in this presentation are the OQ and Ates. The OQ is used to measure how well treatment helped the clients. The Ates is an instrument created by Lee Gillis and colleagues to explore how well the adventure aspect of treatment aided in recovery. There are also qualitative analyses from the staff at the program in the form of comments about treatment of the clients.
