What Is Recreational Therapy?
Recreational therapy is an activity-based intervention that uses recreational activities to improve physical, emotional, cognitive, and even spiritual functioning as an aid to recovery. People who are struggling with substance abuse may not know how to relax and enjoy themselves without intoxicating substances. Recreational therapy changes old, unhealthy relaxation behaviors into new, healthier behaviors. The point of recreational therapy is to make it is easier to recover a sense of emotional and spiritual stability and empowerment while sharpening the skills needed for recovery. We at Next Level Recovery help our clients develop new, better habits by making the process fun!
Recreational Therapy Activities that Help Drug and Alcohol Addiction:
- Yoga – relaxes the body, stabilizes the mind, and makes you more spiritually balanced. It can improve feelings of well being and increase energy levels.
- Art therapy – gets the creative juices flowing, something that can be much more deeply satisfying than intoxication.
- Dancing – really gets the blood flowing, and improves the mood. It’s also great for forming new social connections.
- Playing sports – is not only fun and exciting, it builds discipline and character. It can help create bonds with other people pursuing a newly sober lifestyle.
Why Recreational Therapy for Substance Abuse?
Recreational therapy offers experiences that other forms of addiction treatment therapy don’t. These experiences show our clients that they can still have fun without drugs or alcohol. Recreational therapy for drug and alcohol abuse teaches them how to manage stress, depression, and anxiety without the use of intoxicants. These recreational activities help our clients meet sober new friends and learn new hobbies that will continue to enrich their lives long after they walk out of our doors. This is because one of the chief causes of relapse after completing treatment is that many recovering addicts end up at loose ends, feeling bored. We here at Next Level Recovery help our clients find hobbies, friends, and groups to occupy their time and keep them focused in a healthy, positive direction for a long time to come.
