At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we firmly believe that recovery from addiction doesn’t have to be a dreary endeavor. We prioritize incorporating fun addiction recovery activities to ensure a fulfilling and enjoyable healing process. Physical activities, specifically, have been shown to yield substantial benefits during recovery from substance use disorders. Let’s explore some of the fun-filled activities we offer to make the recovery journey not only effective but also memorable.
What Makes Us Fun: Our Addiction Recovery Activities
What makes our recovery program more fun than others in the surrounding area? Well, we are very lucky to be situated in one of the most beautiful and serene locations in the country. Nestled in the Wasatch Mountains, just north of Salt Lake City, we bring excitement and adventure back into our clients’ lives.
Clients get to tackle the awe-inspiring mountains during hikes and bike rides. They’ll breathe in the crisp, clean air and bask in the gorgeous sunshine when skiing or snowboarding down the mountains. In addition, they’ll get their hearts pumping on the water when paddle boarding or kayaking. Here, clients get the much-needed exercise and enjoyment they need and deserve with horseback riding, running, golfing, and much more.
Addiction recovery is serious. The emotional, mental, and physical toll it takes on the body is challenging. That is why we do everything in our power to let our clients enjoy all the benefits of the great outdoors while they are fully engaged in recovery.
We believe a big part of recovery is getting reintroduced to all the exciting, fun things that life has to offer. Aside from all the outdoor beauty surrounding our campus, we also offer big-screen TVs, ping pong tables, a swim spa, and a variety of other opportunities for clients to relax, kick back and just have fun again.
Some of our addiction recovery activities may include:
Hiking in the Majestic Mountains
Nothing compares to the serenity and beauty of the great outdoors. Spirit Mountain Recovery is nestled amidst picturesque mountains, offering abundant opportunities for invigorating hiking trips. Hiking acts as a natural stress reliever, allowing you to connect with nature, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and reflect on your journey to sobriety.
Art and Music Therapy
Creative expression can be an outlet for emotions, leading to reflection and healing. Art therapy can be a fun and therapeutic part of recovery. It provides a non-verbal outlet for emotions, facilitates self-exploration, and fosters a sense of accomplishment. At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we offer art therapy workshops, where you can explore your creativity while healing from addiction.
Yoga and Meditation
Yoga and meditation are vital components of our recovery program. These practices enhance mindfulness, reduce stress, and promote physical well-being. Our yoga and meditation sessions are designed to cater to everyone, regardless of their previous experience with these disciplines.
Group Recreational Activities
We organize group activities such as sports, game nights, and shared meals to build a sense of community and camaraderie among our clients. These activities are not only fun but also foster teamwork, communication skills, and mutual support — vital traits for a successful recovery journey.
Adventure therapy is an innovative approach to addiction treatment that we offer at Spirit Mountain Recovery. It involves participating in challenging outdoor activities such as zip-lining, rock climbing, and river rafting. Adventure therapy is an adrenaline-filled, enjoyable way to build confidence, resilience, and problem-solving skills.
Immersing yourself in gardening or horticulture can be incredibly therapeutic. Our gardening therapy involves activities right from planting seeds to harvesting fruits and vegetables. Watching something grow from a small seed to a thriving plant can be a powerful metaphor for the recovery process.
Fitness and Exercise
Physical wellness is emphasized, and individuals might participate in workouts, team sports, or other activities to boost physical health and self-esteem.
Equine therapy involves interaction with horses and can be therapeutic as it requires communication, trust, and responsibility.
What Makes Us Fun: Our Small Group Recovery Treatment
We want to provide compassionate, consistent, and non-judgmental guidance and support to all our guests. Therefore, we provide a nurturing environment that helps our clients build a new life that is well-grounded, joyous, and free. Accordingly, that looks different for every client that comes through our doors.
Spirit Mountain Recovery intentionally provides a smaller, more intimate atmosphere. Whereas, we know many other treatment centers offer large-scale therapy options. We have found that personalized attention is the key to individual growth and long-term success.
By accepting up to 8 clients at a time, we ensure that our experienced and professional staff give each client the personalized, 1 on 1 attention and support they deserve. This customized approach is what also makes it so easy for us to provide our clients with the freedom and flexibility to take part in life-changing addiction recovery activities.
At Spirit Mountain Recovery, we know how important evidence-based treatments are to addiction recovery. But recovery success also means reigniting old passions. And also sparking a love for new activities as a reminder of how amazing life can be without drugs or alcohol.
This is what funcovery at Spirit Mountain is all about.
