The Recreation Program at Little Creek Lodge
Using physical exercise to build relationships on trust and respect
Little Creek’s recreational program is designed to facilitate integration among peers, promote healthy relationships within the community, encourage team-building skills, and, of course, allow residents to enjoy the benefits of physical exercise. Through the progression of addiction, healthy interaction with male peers becomes damaged and needs to be re-energized. Addiction leads the alcoholic or addict to isolation and pessimism in his viewpoints. Fresh air, not video games or TV, sparks the beginning of the re-engagement process. We can accommodate residents with a certified 12 step yoga trainer as well as a personal trainer. We also allow residents to go on hikes in nature, otherwise known as adventure treks.
Benefits of Recreation Therapy
Recreation contributes to improved self-confidence and mood while sharpening mental acuity. It promotes a healthy appetite and proper weight maintenance, and increases memory while reducing stress. One of the most significant benefits of regular recreation is that it facilitates relationship building by improving a person’s self-esteem. It also improves coordination, teaches new skills, reduces feelings of loneliness, and so much more.
