Fresh air and new experiences have undeniable therapeutic value. Group activities are healthy and fun alternatives to substance abuse. Every month the staff and volunteers lead groups on a variety of recreational activities that include outdoor and indoor activities at various locations.
Many clients with a long history of chemical dependency, particularly with methamphetamine or opiates, suffer from anhedonia (acute depression). Group activities alleviate this depression by showing clients it’s possible to have fun without abusing alcohol or drugs. A release of adrenaline energizes clients and endorphins enhance their mood.

At Foundation for Recovery we encourage our community to participate and even help host sober social activities for the numerous therapeutic and social benefits. Participation in group activities strengthens an individual’s bond with their peers. For many, these friendships are not only vital to their immediate recovery, but last long after they leave treatment.
