Recreational Therapies

All clients are exposed to a variety of activities such as movies, watersports, team building exercises, hiking, bowling, museum outings, amusement parks, and more on a weekly basis to show them life can be enjoyed without the use of drugs or alcohol. Personal preferences will be taken into consideration when scheduling activities, but clients are encouraged to broaden their horizons and try new things. In addition to the planned recreational activities, patients will be encouraged to utilize the activities located at Serenity Acres, such as swimming, billiards , horseshoes, ping pong, shuffleboard, and regularly planned movie nights.
