Recreational Programs

Recreational Therapy helps show people how life in recovery is not just about stopping drinking and using, it is about new adventures and exciting and unique experiences.

Substance abuse behaviors seep into every aspect of life, consuming the person’s interests and passions. Recreational Therapy helps the person get back to enjoying life and physical activity again.

Recreation is an integral part of recovery. By exploring and finding life-long interests the individual comes to the realization; it is possible to have fun without the use of mind altering substances.

Recreational activities are also a valuable tool for teaching people how to accomplish goals, resolve problems, socialize while sober, and manage stressful situations without the use of drugs or alcohol.
