Evolv Wellness Program – An Experiential Approach

Making the decision to come to treatment can be an overwhelming process for some. The concept of asking for help for mental health or addiction is one that millions of people can never grasp. Even once the decision is made to come to treatment, many find the process somewhat overwhelming for them and that is why at Transformations we have created this wellness program to help with the process while in treatment.

Clients are given the opportunity to practice mindfulness through tai chi, yoga, and meditation with a wellness activities facilitator to help process any ongoing issues.

How this works is no secret. As humans, when we are ruminating on our issues we tend to get bogged down in the thought process. These thoughts get “stuck” in the prefrontal cortex of the brain increasing anxiety, raising blood pressure, and not allowing us to practice “mindfulness” for the day, and we carry those thoughts with us. These activities teach our clients to consciously pay attention to their thoughts and feelings without placing any judgments upon them.

Activities include:

  • Kayaking
  • Rock climbing
  • Snorkeling
  • Yoga
  • Sunrise meditation
