Learning to have fun in recovery without the use drugs or alcohol is a very important part of learning to live in long-term recovery. Our associates work hard for their recovery and enjoy many different outings throughout the year. Celebrating graduations with the community, an annual beach trip, along with rafting, camping and other outdoor activities help teach our associates the importance of a balanced life in recovery.
