Recreation Activities

An important step in recovery and staying clean and sober is the ability to function in real world situations outside of a treatment center as well as enjoy life, social activities, family and friendships. It is important to experience social situations and how to deal or respond to them. Playing and working with others in recovery helps to develop these skills. Taking care of your physical health is also important as it helps your body recover and heal as well as improving your mental and emotional state. So in addition to offering an array of holistic and medical services, we also offer clients the opportunity to enjoy recreational, social and physical activities. Clients have the ability to work out and use the gym on a regular basis.

To help with the orientation process, all new clients attend a “New Client Welcome BBQ” on the first Saturday after their date of admission. At this fun event, clients participate in outdoor activities such as horseshoes, volleyball, fishing, and can enjoy dinner from the grill featuring pulled-pork or chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers and more.

Activities are planned and executed by the Transformations operations staff. Frequently we divide our population into smaller age and gender-specific micro-communities. So a Saturday afternoon may look like this:

  • Adult men can go see a movie
  • Women may take a trip to a salon
  • All men can take a trip to the beach
  • Women can also choose to go to the beach (a different beach than the men)

But we also value the positive elements of assembling the entire community and we offer those activities as well. All of these events help foster what we’ve dubbed “Food and Fellowship” both on and off-site. With so many options to choose from, we ensure that all clients will find something they’re comfortable participating in.
