Steps to recovery: The importance of recreational therapy in addiction treatment.
At Searidge Drug Rehab we offer extensive addiction recreational therapy, as it is an excellent complement to the treatment our residents participate in at Searidge. Performing these activities helps to reconnect and revitalize the mind, body, and soul and promotes different ways to fill the vacuum left by substance abuse.
These activities are performed in the natural beauty of the Annapolis Valley area, where we take full advantage of activities both indoors and out of doors.
Our available addiction recreational therapy activities include:
- team sports like soccer
- horseback riding
- walks along the beach
In the Water
- sea and river kayaking
- swimming in the ocean or in our outdoor pool
- whale watching
- white water rafting
In the Valley
- visits to historical sites such as Port Royal
- trips to the Annapolis Valley Garden
- Bay of Fundy
Nova Scotia offers a wealth of activities, and this is only a small sampling of the possibilities at Searidge Drug Rehab.
