Offering a variety of social/recreational and educational opportunities, this program is designed to create community and decrease social isolation while reducing stigma. Fitness, sport, culture, whole-person health and artistic expression are some of the activities presented within the program.
This program is designed to create community and decrease social isolation. Life skills groups typically include socialization, interpersonal skills, lifestyle enhancement and wellness. Our recreational programs include activities that range from walking to more active sports pursuits like hockey and hiking. We also provide creative programming such as music, fine arts, and creative writing. Participants provide input into what is offered and can also facilitate some of the programs along with staff and volunteers.
We recognize the importance of creating community and promoting personal choice, with a strong focus on developing positive relationships. We understand that a person’s recovery is built on his or her strengths, talents, resources and individual resiliency.
