Addiction recovery doesn’t need to be all doom and gloom. A little adventure is key to helping clients consider the future and look past their addiction. Clients work hard at their recovery and deserve some freedom, adventure, and downtime. At Findlay Recovery Center, we offer our customers the chance to understand what their lives could look like post-addiction.
A Taste Of Clean Living
Providing our men with a taste of adventure shows that life living clean can be more fun and exciting than a life with addiction. Whether it’s horseback riding or go-karting, having fun is so much easier to enjoy with a clear head. While addiction puts clear blockers in place for driving or adventure, clean living opens up a world of freedom and possibility. Sharing these with our clients post-detox is the best way to highlight what their lives could be like in the future.
Recovery Is A Long Journey That Deserves Reward
As rewarding as time in treatment can be, there’s no escape from the fact that recovery is a challenging journey. While therapy and treatment are highly rewarding and have huge benefits, individuals deserve a reward for their hard work. A little adventure helps men take a break from the hard work and have a chance to relax and enjoy the world around them. Providing fun activities and downtime is a reward far more stimulating than drugs or alcohol.
Experience Life For The First Time
Many of those in long-term recovery may have deprived themselves of a bit of adventure. A crucial part of the recovery process is exposing individuals to new experiences for a rich life post-addiction. Opening up the potential to something enjoyable other than drugs or alcohol provides new recreational experiences that clients may have never even considered during the height of their addiction. We want our clients to leave the center with a new set of hobbies or activities they can enjoy.
Restore Confidence And Self Belief
An individual post-detox might feel lost, deprived of confidence and sense of self-worth. A little adventure and challenge provide clients with the chance to achieve and believe in themselves again. Whether it’s a trip to the local bowling alley or an off-road dirt bike trip, individuals deserve to have that chance to rebuild their confidence outside of the traditional clinical or therapy-based setting.
Socialize And Engage
The recovery journey is a very personal one, and adventure activities provide the chance to socialize and engage with individuals on a similar journey. Bond over the shared sense of achievement felt completing a task together. Adventure and challenge provide the same socialization aspect as an intensive outpatient program, giving individuals the chance to develop their life skills in a fun setting.
At Findlay Recovery Center, we believe that a bit of adventure is essential to recover from addiction. Contact us today to find out what activities we offer as part of our services. We’ll have challenges to suit every individual’s needs, from bowling to biking.
